Ruthie is a wiggly, happy girl now. but she wasn't always so healthy. She arrived at the shelter with a serious leg injury, but thanks to Friends of the Shelter, Ruthie received the treatment she needed to heal.

Ruthie loves attention and isn't afraid to ask for it! She is very outgoing and gets along with everybody. Ruthie likes to play and is a big fan of tennis balls. Ruthie would be best in a home where she can be the one and only dog! We recommend no apartments for Ruthie because she can be a bit vocal at times.


I'm a fun-loving, happy-all-the-time, glass-is-half-full kind of dog looking for someone who loves to laugh and play around. Must have a great sense of humor and a bunch of tennis balls.

Primary Color: White
