Meet Diamond - An Extra Special Girl

There's a new love in my life and her name is Diamond! This beautiful gray brindle Pit Bull mix is one of the sweetest dogs I have met as a volunteer at our local city shelter. Diamond's nurturing instincts are irrepressible and she is happiest when she can act as a surrogate mother for homeless puppies like the little guy show above. It's absolutely adorable to watch them snuggled up together!

Diamond is exceptionally loving and she is also special for another reason: she appears to have been born with a club foot. Her left front paw is severely deformed and turns inward, making it very difficult for her to walk.

Fortunately, Friends of Oakland Animal Services has arranged for Diamond to receive the corrective surgery she desperately needs this week! Stay tuned for updates...
