UPDATE: Blue Diamond is safe with Pryor’s Planet Rescue. This is where real rescue begins; the dog needs a foster where he can be given the security and love he needs.
“Pryor’s Planet has done what they knew was right and saved his life; now it’s time to help them find a foster who can give Blue Diamond all the comforts of home. Many shared, prayed, commented and asked rescues to save him- one DID! Now it’s time to help the rescue who answered the call.”
If able to help, please go to the website and fill out a foster application.
In a lonely kennel at Carson Animal Shelter, a distraught older man sits in front of his dog’s cage and tries to reassure his dog that everything will be better soon.
Everyday Terry Miller takes a cab to sit with his dog named Blue Diamond (A4041082) from 2:00 in the afternoon until closing time at 7:00 p.m. A volunteer cried while listening to Miller’s story.
Miller and Diamond have been best friends for seven years. Miller took the dog from his abusive nephew when Diamond was barely three-months-old after seeing the puppy cruelly treated. Miller has cancer and cares for his mother where the alleged abusive nephew also resides. When the two men recently had another altercation, Blue Diamond, protecting his owner, bit the nephew and in the confusion of the melee, also nipped Miller’s mother.
Animal Control removed Diamond from his home; the dog is now in mandatory quarantine.
Miller knows he cannot have his dog back, but only wants Diamond to have a chance and live a good life. He insists his dog is not aggressive, but had only been protecting his best friend.
My name is Blue Diamond and I’m an approximately 7 years, 1 month old male pit bull. I am not yet neutered. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since May 6, 2015. I will be available on May 16, 2015. You can visit me at my temporary home at C146.
Blue Diamond is listed as “rescue only.” He is currently on the urgent list and is scheduled to be euthanized on Monday.
