Diamond came to OAS with a clubfoot and limped her way into everyone’s heart with her sweet disposition. A few weeks later, a screaming 4 week old chihuahua came into the shelter and very much needed care and comfort of a mother. The staff at OAS paired the puppy with Diamond and she immediately accepted the puppy as her own. Diamond took her new role as mom so seriously, that when the puppy moved into a foster home, Diamond slipped into a depression, not eating and barely lifting her head when someone walked by. Staff thought she was sick, but gave her another puppy to see if she regained her spirits, and indeed she did.
Friends of Oakland Animal Services sponsored a complex reconstructive surgery that realigned the bones of Diamond’s front leg, setting them in the normal position. With the help of Our Pack, Diamond was placed in foster home and lucky for them, the family fell in love with Diamond and became her forever home.
