Ruby is a 5 year old 47 lb hound mix. She is a sweet girl once she gets to know a person but will be timid with new people at first. She reportedly does well with cats and kids. Ruby would do best in a home where she is the only dog. She is potty and crate trained and she knows several commands. She is not overly vocal but will bark when her food is being prepared or when she wants to let you know she is ready to come back inside. She does need some work with her leash manners and needs an owner who will be strong enough to work with her on leash.
