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.

About Tonya Griffith's Animal Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

This is a small animal rescue for cats and dogs. I have several foster homes in various areas, and I also do courtesy postings for people who need help finding a home for their pet, which is about 80% successful. The pet doesn't have to enter a rescue or shelter and the owner is contacted, so they decide who their pet goes to. If a person can't send me pictures, and they don't live too far away, I will go and videotape the pet myself to place pictures on the internet, or have a volunteer get the pictures. There have been a few pets that haven't been able to find a home through this service, but it depends on what the pet is and who is looking on the internet. When we have space available we take transfers from a local kill animal shelter. We also step in and help people who find themselves with multiple animals and no way to pay to get them fixed. Usually I will get all the females fixed to get their circumstances under control, and in some cases I will also help with donated food when I have extra. If they want to find homes for some of the many pets they have accumulated, then I will place their pictures on the internet for them. We don't euthanize unless a pet is seriously ill.

Come Meet Our Pets...

It depends on who has the pet. We don't advertise our address to keep people from dumping animals on our road anymore than they usually do, especially since this is also where we live. I like to visit with a person on the phone first before letting them come meet the pet.
