Ruby is such a gentle and quiet soul.  Although she doesn’t play with other dogs and may be afraid of big quick movements from strangers, she remains approachable.  As a puppy, Ruby was rescued with her litter mates to an over-crowded shelter then transferred to a foster home to heal injuries from dogs’ attack.  She’s highly treats and food motivated, crate-trained, housetrained, walks well on leash.  She enjoys receiving pets from her humans and going out for leisurely walks.  She’s looking for an experienced family to continue providing further socialization with people.


Ruby is spayed (October-28-2015), up to date with routine shots, micro-chipped, de-wormed and tested negative for heartworm.
