Facts about Ruby

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 2016379C
Ruby loves to lie in the sunshine, get belly rubs, and cuddle. She is potty trained, trustworthy in the house, and can even use a doggie door. She is so easy-breezy - she will chill on the couch with you or go with you on walks--whatever you like! Although it's a plus if you have one, she does not require a fenced yard because she walks so well on a leash.

Ruby is a quiet girl and is a little shy when meeting new people. But once she gets to know you, there will be smooches, playing and all the fun things dogs like to do. Because she's shy, Ruby finds children a bit intimidating, so she will do better in a home with older families members. Ruby has recently started sleepovers at the home of her shelter buddy, she loves being the top dog. Ruby would do best in a home without other canines or felines.

Ruby is looking for a caring and compassionate family that will work with her to build her confidence. Are you that family? Ruby would love to meet you! Stop by and see just how awesome Ruby is. Fill out an application and lets get this adoption started!

Ruby's adoption fee is $175; she is microchipped, spayed, and up to date on vaccines. Some of our pets are in foster care. If you are interested in a specific pet, please contact the shelter at (618) 939-7389 to arrange a meeting.

About Helping Strays of Monroe County

About Our Shelter...

We promote the humane care of all abandoned and stray animals in our community. We are a no-kill shelter. All of our pets leave the shelter for their forever homes micro-chipped, up to date on vaccines, and altered.

Founded in 2002, Helping Strays is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization supported entirely by donations.

Our lucky animals receive appropriate medical care, are featured on the Helping Strays website "adoption list" and are taken to several adoption events every month in an attempt to find permanent, loving homes.
