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.
