At the time this little bio was written, this “Diamond in the Ruff” had been at the Humane Society of Broward County over 60 days. Before that, Bucky (ID 595126) had spent time at another animal shelter where not many animals get adopted, so they transferred him here.

Diamond in the Ruff - Bucky

Despite his months at the shelter, Bucky is a very happy, playful boy who wants nothing more than to be a family dog.

This 2-year-old mixed breed is still very much a puppy; he has not grown into his size yet. Bucky is playful, yet clumsy. He absolutely loves children, but because he doesn’t realize he’s 60lbs (he thinks he’s still a tiny pup), we recommend slightly older kids. Bucky knows quite a few basic commands, like “sit,” “down,” and “watch me,” but he could benefit from a few additional classes.

This dog is honestly a really sweet boy who just needs a chance. Our friends at JR Dunn Jewelers believe Bucky is a great family dog, too, which is why they are generously waiving his adoption fee!

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.
