Diamonds in the Ruff

Finding loving homes for our overlooked dogs and cats 


Meet Thea


Get to know the Diamond

Thea is an outgoing and fun-loving gal from Texas looking for her furever home. She was found as a stray before making her way into a foster home, where she was eager to show her appreciation. She gives amazing hugs and kisses!


Despite her age, she's still got plenty of pep in her step and would enjoy an adventure here and there. She forgets her manners when excited, like when meeting new humans, and wants to jump into their arms! Her only "old lady" quality is that she can get a little cranky with chaos, so she would prefer a home in a quiet area and ideally with a fenced-in yard to call her own.

She had one odd week where she was suddenly very lethargic and quiet; nothing like the lovable and excited Thea we know. It was then that she was diagnosed with Addison's disease. With monthly treatments, she should continue to be happy, healthy, and as peppy as ever, although these treatments can be expensive for a dog of her stature. It is recommended that potential adopters consult with their veterinarian to be sure they will be able to properly manage Thea's health.


While she has grown insecure around other dogs, she still loves a good chase with a trusted dog pal (if her "chase" friend is too slow she'll even pause to let them get ahead); her love of chase extends to cats, but she isn't as polite with them so she does need a feline-free home. Being an only pet would be easiest for her, but she would love a doggy sibling under the right circumstances. She would prefer they are respectful, sweet, and not too energetic. Also, that they understand that she's sometimes bad at introductions and may need some human-guidance to get over her fears.


She is housebroken and leash-trained, although her excitement can lead to some pulling as well. She is both food and attention-motivated so she is eager to keep learning!
