Facts about Ruby

  • Breed: Hound (Unknown Type)/Pointer Mix
  • Color: White - With Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10493421

4 year old Ruby is a hound mix who is approximately 40 pounds

she is currently in a foster home with several other dogs and gets along fine however she can be dog selective; she currently visits the local dog park without issue 

she is 90% housetrained which may sound strange but when her routine is changed, or if she has been stressed by a loud noise (like a big dump truck) she sometimes comes in the house and will urinate.

Ruby loves routine, has now been crate trained and enjoys walks and trails - she is a hound so is not an off leash dog - she will follow her nose so she is not a dog who can go to a cottage and be let off the leash 

Her dream home would be with someone who had a house with fenced yard, and either worked from home or had a dog walker for her midday and someone who would be her "apple"

Ruby adores people

As mentioned above she is sound sensitive so an area that is near buses, trucks or streetcars will not be a good fit for Ruby; she would be too frightened and stressed all the time

A quiet neighbourhood with lots of interesting sights and smells will suit Ruby just fine

A home with older children would also be fine (younger children/toddlers may be too noisy for Ruby to cope with); the foster mom has introduced her to nylabones (which she loves) which has taken the edge off her initial anxiety

Ruby is a lovely soul and is waiting for that special someone

Foster Homes
Sadly, each new day brings a flood of emails and telephone pleas to help yet another abandoned dear dog. We try and help these displaced dogs through our rescue efforts and networking. We are always in search of new foster homes where a dog can be cared for and loved until a permanent home is found. Speaking of Dogs Rescue covers food, medical attention and all the supplies required for the dogs in foster care. Foster parents need be responsible and patient people who will provide a safe environment for our dogs. A foster contract must be signed. This is a serious responsibility; however the experience is very rewarding. If you can open your heart and home to a foster dog please contact us. We have a comprehensive Foster Manual available for people who are considering becoming a foster parent.
