Ruby was rescued along with an adult female Puggle (Pug/Beagle mix) that we believe to be her mother, Mama Leona, seen in one of the photos here. Ruby is very playful and energetic with other dogs..she just loves the company of other dogs and loves playing with her toys!
When Ruby was first rescued, she was extremely afraid of people. At the time of her rescue, it appeared that she had never had any form of human contact. She still remains quite timid and shy when meeting new people and it takes a while to gain her trust. For this reason, we feel that Ruby would do best in a home without small children and one with experienced dog owners who will train her gently and patiently and allow her to come around at her own pace.
Ruby is a very special girl in need of a very special home where she can learn all the basics that she missed out on early in life. With some extra TLC and patient training, Ruby will certainly blossom into a very loving, loyal companion.
