Posted 1/13/15. Ruby was found on December 12, 2014, severely injured and neglected. She is a young Boxer mix, estimated to be around 2 yrs old when posted on 1/13/15. Ruby has gained weight, and weighs a healthy 55lbs now. She is now house and crate trained, and we recommend to keep her in a crate when left alone. She will need a secure fenced yard. She plays fine with bigger dogs, but we don't recommend her to be with any small pets, and recommend a family with older children.
She loves sleeping on the sofa and chairs, and will climb in bed with you if you let her. Ruby needs a firm, consistent owner who is settled in life, without many changes coming soon. She is a very loyal, loving dog, playful, and loves to be loved on. Ruby hasn't barked once, but she does snore... loudly.
I will need proof of pet deposits paid and landlord verification, or proof of home ownership. I will need to be sure there are no breed restrictions for potential adopters, will require personal and vet references, and a home visit before letting anyone take Ruby home. This dog has been through a lot, and I want her to go to the best home possible. We would like to get updates on occasion from the family that adopts her, throughout the course of Ruby's life.
