This week’s Diamond in the Ruff is a puppy in big-dog clothes. Meet Pebbles (ID 605719). This 10-month-old pup may look big, but she still thinks she’s a 10lb lap dog (she’s almost 45lbs now). Pebbles has puppy playtime energy – loves to chew on toys, high-energy, and loves to go for walks. But, she is learning how to calm down inside the house, as well as when commanded.

Pebbles is a people person… and a cat person… and a dog person. She loves EVERYONE! (We do, however, think she would do best with a family with slightly older children, for she doesn’t realize how big she is, yet). As a puppy, she would benefit from obedience training (although she does know “sit” and is perfecting the art of potty training). She is very treat motivated, too, which should make training a snap!

Although she is as adorable as can be, she has been waiting for the past few weeks for a family with enough time and patience to train this love bug! To help her find love sooner, our friends at JR Dunn Jewelers have generously sponsored her adoption fee – which is great, because the lucky family that decides to adopt her can use the money they save on obedience classes (which we offer here at the shelter at a significant discount for dogs adopted through us). It’s really a win-win!

So, please stop by and meet Pebbles today. Her energy and loving personality will truly win you over.

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.
