This is our Thursday Pet of the Week - DIAMOND. This sweet girl is tied for being the longest resident at It Takes a Village. I think that is a record that needs to come to an end right now.

DIAMOND is a year-and-a-half-old female Husky mix, weighing in at just under 50 pounds. As you can see in all of her pictures, DIAMOND always has a big doggie smile shining brightly on her face.

DIAMOND knows some basic commands and is very motivated by treats. Our friends at ITV tell us that DIAMOND does best by herself, with no other pets around.

If you think DIAMOND might be a good fit for your home, then go ahead and fill out an online adoption application, and then schedule a meet & greet at It Takes a Village.

All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, microchipped, spayed or neutered, and FIV/FeLV-tested.

If our pet of the week isn’t the right fit for your home, please visit It Takes a Village to see the other rescues that need to get fostered and adopted. And don't forget about their RENT A DOG Program. A quick fill form and copy of your photo ID will allow you time out with one of ITV's vetted shelter dogs. These day dates are great for the rescues - it gets them some exercise and new information to help us get them adopted. It’s been a big hit- so don’t miss out!
