'Diamond in the rough'
Cristal Parkinson, owner of Positively Stylin Dog Grooming Salon, 112B Jason St., of Victoria, holds Diamond, who she rescued in August and is estimated to be between 9 and 12 years old.
"I donated a grooming to the animal shelter and then just fell in love with her," Parkinson said, who has been grooming professionally for eight years.
She colored Diamond purple with a semi-permanent dye. "We named her Diamond, for 'diamond in the rough.' Her personality just warms your heart."
