Orange County shelter dedicates day to adopting longest resident – WFTV


ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Blue Diamond hasn’t had a place to call home in 100 days.

The 8-year-old dog is Orange County Animal Services’ longest-serving resident. To help her find her forever home, the shelter designates this Saturday as “Blue Diamond Day.”


By day, she will be outdoors in an enclosed playground available for attention and interaction with all who visit.

“We will show the world what we see every day: that Blue Diamond is an amazing dog,” the shelter said on social media. “And we’ll get her adopted.”

Shelter officials said that like any dog, Blue Diamond has its pros and cons. She is gentle and friendly with everyone she meets, but she is selective about other dogs and doesn’t like many other dogs.

“Blue Diamond is a senior dog and as such is determined in his ways,” the shelter said. “She’s smart and treat-oriented, and loves long walks.”

The shelter said they didn’t know how she would deal with the cats.

“We believe in her, and for one lucky family, Blue Diamond will be the perfect match,” the shelter said.
