ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — This week's pet of the week is truly a diamond in the ruff.

Diamond is a 6-month-old Chihuahua mix who needs a loving home.

According to the American Kennel Club, Chihuahuas are a national symbol of Mexico that possess big-dog attitude. They usually require training to prevent them from ruling over your home.

Shelter workers say Diamond loves balls and is more than happy to roll over for a belly rub. She is sure to become a devoted companion and valued member of the family

Diamond is spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. Her adoption fee is $200.
