Mr. George Parke, St. Albans, Hertfordshire, Mary, ten years

Image ID:

Save me: Diamond must find a new home or die. Diamond the shaggy mongrel has good reason to have that appealing look in his eyes..he is doomed to die unless his owner sends him packing. The dog has built up a criminal record for himself since he was born ten years ago. All because he loves life so much that sometimes his boisterous-ness gets the better of him. In his latest escapade, a noisy lorry passed his home at St. Albans, Hertfordshire. The engine roar sounded like a challenge to the excitable Diamond. The black-and-white dog bounded after it, scattering passers by's and toppling a little boy. It landed Diamond in court for the fourth time. His earlier encounters with the town magistrates came about because he had either growled or snapped at people he didn't care for. His bark is worse than his bite, but the court ruled, on Wednesday (14-6-72), that his master, Mr. George Parke, must find him a new home within two weeks or he will be destroyed. George's wife Mary said later: Diamond's a big soppy old thing- just boisterous and full of fun. He would never hurt anybody." June 1972 P006026"
