Ruby was adopted in March of 2013 from us but sadly, her family is unable to keep her due to their child having severe allergies to her. 

Below is what they told us about her. Also, we can only post 4 photos to our website, more pics of Ruby can be seen here. https://onedrive.live.com/?cid=66385724bbaa7c84&id=66385724BBAA7C84%216556&ref=button&Bsrc=Share&Bpub=SDX.SkyDrive&authkey=!AuehViU3zVju7LU

Summary: Ruby is an amazing unique dog that is filled with love. She’ll snuggle, play, run, and jump. She will also lay down and nap for hours on end. She is a highly intelligent, loving dog. Ruby does have some anxiety issues but has come a long way since she was first adopted. She has had extensive obedience training and has a working dog mentality to please her owner(s). Ruby only tends to shed during changing of the seasons, does not drool, does not beg, does not eat from the table, has no food or resource guarding, and does not go on furniture. We have worked with Ruby extensively and she does the best when provided a stable, loving home with routine exercise, play, and training. She is very self-sufficient and does not require much. She will not over-eat and can manage her own food intake responsibly. More information as well as all of Ruby’s toys, beds, leashes, collars, food, treats will follow her wherever she goes.
