Here is a little more about Rubie's from her foster family:
"As precious as her name Rubie is a perfect example of what's right in this world. Even though her owner of 8 years dropped her at a kill shelter and left without a good-bye Rubie is still full of love and kisses. After only a few short hours she was already cuddling with her foster mom and snoozing comfortably on her new doggie bed (probably the only one she's ever had). Very little interest in toys and mostly indifferent to other dogs it is believed she'll do best in an house where she is the only dog and can get lots of attention. UTD on shots and housebroken she would be great with kids over 13 that can be gentle and loving with her. Would you please open your heart to this little gem?"
