Ruby's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Ruby's Story...
Ruby is one special girl. Abandoned at an apartment complex, she was on her own for quite a while and, though it took a lot of effort, she was finally brought in to a foster home. She is young, very healthy, and once she settles in to new surroundings and knows who she can trust, she is quite the entertainer.

Ruby is about one and a half years old and about 45 pounds. She loves to be with other dogs, especially little ones. She could learn to love life as an only dog too though. She even hung out with cats while she was on her own, so cats are OK with her too.

Though Ruby is very fearful of new surroundings and people, it will only take a loving human pack with great consistency to help her become the awesome dog she is. Could you be the family for her?

You can find out how to apply for Ruby on the Adoption Process page of our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org. You can email us for more information at throwmeabonerescue@gmail.com

All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live.

Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ruby, a Oakley Australian Kelpie/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Kelpie/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Oakley, or seeking a Australian Kelpie/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Oakley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oakley already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oakley breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Kelpie/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Australian Kelpie/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oakley paves the way for another one to be saved.
