Since the Tortuga Music Festival was this past weekend, we have country music on the brain. And, this week’s “Diamond in the Ruff” was named after a much-loved country star! 🎸

Meet Dierks (ID 588798), a 1 year old beagle/hound mix. Dierks is a very smart dog who has had lots of training. He knows plenty of tricks, is housebroken, and is very obedient. Not only that, but he is happy, friendly, and enthusiastic. There is a person he does not like!

Diamond in the Ruff JR Dunn - Dierks

You might call him “Sweet & Wild” because Dierks is also super energetic and adventurous. He loves to play with toys, jumping in a kiddie pool, and generally just running around outside. If you have a fenced-in yard, Dierks would be the ideal dog for you. Dierks, however, is quite strong and can play a little rough at times, so he would do best in a family with no children in the house.

💎 Thanks to our friends at JR Dunn Jewelers, Dierks’ adoption fee has been sponsored – talk about “Free and Easy.” 💎 If you are looking for a happy, energetic addition to your household, Dierks is the dog for you.

About Diamond in the Ruff

Since 2016, longtime Humane Society of Broward County supporter J.R. Dunn Jewelers has been helping to create true love – by sponsoring pet adoptions so that more dogs and cats can find happy homes. The program is called Diamond in the Ruff, and who knows diamonds better than J.R. Dunn?

J.R. Dunn features a pet each week – yes, 52 pets every year – and underwrites the entire adoption fee for that dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Diamond in the Ruff is promoted through J.R. Dunn’s local radio spots and social media, and the HSBC will do its share of promotion as well.

What a fabulous way to put their money where their heart is, and to bring attention to all the amazing dogs and cats that are so ready to be loved. Furry little diamonds in the rough – just waiting for their “perfect setting!”

Be sure to visit J.R. Dunn’s facebook page each week  to see who the featured pet is and you might just find your next family member. Of course to meet the pet, contact the Humane Society of Broward County at 954-266-6839.
