This beautiful brindle girl with the adorable ears is Ruby! She's about 3-4 years old, house trained & crate trained and doesn't mind hanging out in her crate. She likes children but prefers being around older children, she's a little picky with her dog friends and doesn't like cats. She's a little unsure of people when she first meets them but after a while she warms up to them and it's time for cuddles & kisses! Ruby was rescued from Texas and placed in a Foster Home where she was stuck in her crate most of the time and only left the house occasionally for adoption events. While outside in the yard one day, a dog jumped their fence and attacked Ruby & her sister. Ruby almost lost her life from the wounds and during recovery it was discovered she was pregnant! She was struggling, overweight and at risk of being euthanized. Our Director found out about this sweet girl and she became a Meacham's Mutt who's now thriving in her Foster Home!

Ruby is full of affection and wants nothing more than to be close to her people! She's a sensitive dog who's in tune with her people & surroundings and can sense if someone is upset or something isn't right. A sweet girl who loves attention and affection, belly rubs & ear scratches make her quite happy! Ruby is a petite girl at 40lbs and the perfect size for sitting on laps, which is one of her favorite things to do! She's very affectionate, enjoys giving kisses and likes to snuggle, especially when she's sleepy. She'd love to have a Forever Home where she could sleep on a soft bed with her people! When it comes to looks, Ruby is one of the most beautiful dogs we've ever seen! Her brindle fur is gorgeous and she has a white tux that is so soft! She has very happy eyes and when she smiles, her whole face lights up and you can't help but smile back at her! Her ears are incredibly charming and just add to her character! She's very easy to love and has a face that just asks for kisses!

Full of spunk and a bundle of energy, Ruby loves playing but gets tired easily. She likes toys and recently learned the joy of shredding soft items, like blankets. She loves to explore the yard at her Foster Home and it's so much fun to watch her! This goofy girl leaps & bounds across the yard and has a blast rolling around the grass! She's a clumsy girl and you can't help but laugh at her silly antics! She likes entertaining people and will have you laughing when she snorts, or when she's sleeping and starts snoring! When it's time to relax, Ruby loves sprawling out on the couch, chewing on bones and napping.

Ruby isn't just a beautiful girl, she's also very smart! A quick leaner who listens most of the time, she knows the commands Sit, Stay and Leave it. She never says no to a treat so that might be useful when it comes to teaching her new commands & maybe even some tricks! This frisky little lady loves going for walks and is a good girl on the leash! One of her favorite activities is going for car rides and she behaves very well in public, unless her foster brother is acting out then she joins him. People always stop her and comment on how beautiful, sweet & well-behaved she is!

Ruby will be a wonderful companion and she can't wait to have her very own Forever Home where she'll be loved and cherished!

Our Adoption Process...

If you're interested in becoming a Foster Parent or would like to adopt a Meacham's Mutt, please familiarize yourself with our protocol and requirements. All applications are thoroughly processed and only approved applicants will be considered for our dogs. We reserve the right to deny an application at any time during the process.

As part of our Application Process, approved applicants will have their personal and veterinary references verified. All resident pets, and other pets in the home, must be up to date on their vaccinations, spayed or neutered, and current on necessary preventative care, especially Heartworm preventative for dogs. We require Landlord permission, if applicable, and we will not place dogs in cities, counties or areas where they may be subjected to a breed ban.

Once approved, we will then schedule a Home Inspection to ensure that the living conditions are safe, healthy, and the best environment for that dog.

When a Foster or Adoption applicant is fully approved, we will send the dog on a Trial Visit, which can last up to two weeks. Once the Trial Visit is over, we will then conclude whether the dog is to be fostered, or adopted, by the applicant.
