Brianna from the Humane Society of West Michigan wasn't able to come into the studio yesterday morning due to COVID-19, but we talked on the phone about Diamond!

Meet Diamond! As you can tell by her refined pose and her adorable floppy ears--Diamond is the very definition of an elegant lady! She'd love to find a quiet, peaceful home where she can be the center of attention as your only baby, furry or otherwise. Diamond is definitely a girl's girl and prefers the company of women over men, but she can be won over with time and trust. This gorgeous girl is very generous, and would be more than happy to share her beauty secrets with her new furever family! Could this pretty lady be the one for you?

If you’re interested in giving Diamond a furever home, please visit our website at hswestmi.org
