This week’s JR Dunn Jewelers’ “Diamond in the Ruff” is a dog who is shaping up to be a real “Shelter Success Story.” Meet Sabo (ID 591792), he’s a 3-year-old male, mixed-breed who came to us from Puerto Rico back in March. Although we could tell that he was a sweet, loving, and easy-going dog, it appeared as though Sabo never lived in a traditional home environment. As such, we could tell right away that he would need to be adopted by a family who had the time and patience to give him some basic obedience training.

Diamond in the Ruff: Sabo

Well, sadly, after 2 months at the shelter, no families seemed interested in this playful pup. But last week, Sabo’s luck started to change. He was selected to be one of the dogs to participate in our “Junior Dog Training Camp” – a week-long, after-school program where teenagers learned how to train dogs.

These patient, loving, and enthusiastic kids absolutely loved teaching Sabo, and he clearly loved being a student. He is an amazingly fast learner! In just ONE WEEK, he learned “sit,” “touch” (nose to palm), “watch me,” “down,” “go to bed,” and he even learned how to walk nicely on a leash.

Sabo wants to put his new skills to good use. Are you looking for a sweet, loving, and SMART dog to add to your family? Look no further than Sabo.
And, thanks to the generosity of our friends at JR Dunn Jewelers, Sabo’s adoption fee has been fully sponsored. Please stop on by the shelter and hopefully Sabo can show off 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.
