Beautiful Ruby was turned in by her owners because they were moving out of state and felt the move would be too hard on Ruby! It's harder to lose your family and your home than a move out of state! Ruby had a rough time at first, but has adjusted and is now doing well. Ruby is healthy, a little overweight, but she is on a diet to lose about 10 pounds. She weighs 95 pounds and her estimated date of birth is 10/4/07. She has a docked tail. Ruby has front leg deformities caused by Rickets, a nutritional deficiency as a puppy affecting the bone growth plates causing deformity. Her lower legs are bent, but don't cause any problems and she likes to go on short walks. Ruby is a sweetheart, no trouble at all. She is well behaved, house trained and get along well with other animals. She is spayed, vaccinated, dewormed and microchipped. Ruby has several years of love and companionship to give and we hope she will find that special person to love and live out her remaining years with. $100 adoption fee, cash only, which is to help reimburse for a portion of expenses of dog rescue and rehabilitation. Adoption contract required. We are looking for adopters who are willing and able to care for this dog for its lifetime (10+ years). Location: Quail Valley/Menifee, Southwest Riverside County. Local adoptions only; within 75 mile radius because we deliver animal to its new home to do a home/yard check. Please note: L.A. and Orange Counties are out of area because of traffic and difficult, time-consuming drive.) We prescreen potential adopters before setting up a meeting.
If interested in this animal, please email us with a little info about you, your family, your other pets, your experience as a dog owner (which breed, etc.), where you live (which city, home or apt?), etc. And tell us what type of dog you are looking for--an inside dog, an outside dog or? Thank you.
Our adoption process involves meeting the animal, either at Petco in Menifee on Saturdays from 10-2 or by appointment on other days at the rescue in Quail Valley. We have the best interest of the animal in mind and our goal is to find a good, permanent home for each of our rescued animals. We have the right to decline an application if we feel it is not a good match or fit for the animal. If you like the animal and we both feel it is a good match, an application and adoption contract is completed. A convenient day/time is arranged for us to deliver the animal to its new home to do a home check (to make sure the home and yard are safe and secure). We will collect the adoption fee (cash only) when we deliver the animal to its new home. All our adoptions are on a trial basis because our goal is to have a successful adoption where the animal has a good permanent home and never ends up in a bad situation again. We ask that you give the animal a chance to adjust and settle in his new home and environment. Going to a new home with new people and a new environment is traumatic and stressful. It will take time for the animal to become comfortable around you and his/her new home. This should be a bonding period where you get to know the animal and connect with it, spend time with it and take things slow. He/she will need to get to know and trust you and learn the rules of the house and what is expected of him/her. This takes time, sometimes 2-3 weeks. During this time we will hold the adoption fee and if the adoption is not working out, we ask that you contact us and return the animal and we will refund your adoption fee.
