Meet 1-year old Diva! She was rescued with 5 other goldens from a shelter in Diyerbakir, Turkey. (a terrorism town 18-hour drive from Istanbul.) She came to the US with her pal, Shake. Despite everything she has been through in her short life, she is happy and always smiling.

Diva is in good health and is house broken. She strongly pulls her leash on walks, even though she is a petite 55 lbs. She just seems to be excited to see what’s going on and who she might meet! She knows simple commands but will need a family who can spend the time to train her completely. She rides well in cars, probably got the experience from her 18-hour trip out of Diyerbakir! She gets along with other dogs, especially her foster sister. We don’t know how she is with cats, none to meet in the neighborhood!

Diva craves a lot of love and attention. She gets plenty from her foster mom & grandma but will probably thrive with a bigger family around doting on her as much as possible. She’s active and feisty, so very little children and anyone not sturdy on their feet will have to be careful until she’s trained. She has a lot of energy, as expected with a puppy!

We don’t think she cares too much about the pool, since she always hangs out watching her foster sister who loves to swim. She is happy to be inside or outside, on the couch or outdoor furniture. She slept in the hall the first few nights, but now likes to sleep in her foster mom’s room along with her sis! (not on the bed, though)

Diva is ready for her forever home. Keep in mind that she is a puppy and will need training and guidance and a lot of love! If you feel this charming & energetic puppy will be a wonderful addition to your family, please contact her rep at annielili2003@yahoo.com. Please make sure you have completed your in-home interview.

As an international rescue, Diva’s adoption fee is $1,500.00
