Facts about Ruby

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Rat Terrier Mix
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Ruby was a medical case dog in a rural southern shelter. When we saw her picture we knew no one else would save her life so we didn’t hesitate to get her out of there and get her the medical treatment we could see she needed.

Ruby had suffered severe eye trauma and her eye had already ruptured and needed to be removed. She had also been bred over and over again so we knew a spay would be necessary as well. When she arrived in New York she was suffering horribly from infected and rotting teeth. This poor baby was on the verge of becoming septic and would have surely died if we didn’t get her.

Ruby is now completely healthy and ready for her new home. She is a little angel and loves cuddling with her human. Nothing makes her happier than being held and loved. She will give all the love she has in return. She is really a wonderful little girl and should have nothing but the best.

Ruby is between 7 and 9 at best guesstimate and weighs in at approximately 13 lbs. She is very quiet. She does need to eat separately from other dogs as she gets nervous that they will take her food and she likes to wander from bowl to bowl if allowed. Sometimes this can cause problems with other dogs.

Ruby is located in Freeport NY

About Our Best Friends Animal Rescue Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of animal lovers that came together so that we could save more of the voiceless animals that haven't gotten a good start.
All of us work at least one full time job and the rest of our time goes for the little souls that need our help.
We are as dedicated to each other as we are to the animals. Together we are making a difference. We have volunteers who help us on all levels but always need more help socializing and helping with taking dogs to vet appointments and picking them up. Going to the groomer and much more.
There are some who handle networking, mass emailing, etc. Others who help on Facebook. We have fosters who take in our rescues for a period of time, so that a rescued dog learns to live in a household and so that we can get to know the fur baby a little better so they can be placed in their proper furever home ~ also the fosters assist us in getting the animals OUT of the shelters faster & more efficiently. There are also those wonderful people who do volunteer transport !!! That's so so important !! and everyone else, who just likes our page or shares our pictures ~ we are ALL in this together.

Our Adoption Process...

An adoption application must be completed before any meet and greets or extensive information is given out. All of our animals are home fostered and we must be diligent about protecting our volunteers. Our adoption fees range from $0 to $500 and are determined on a per case basis. Our puppies that are to young to be spayed or neutered will be adopted out and a contract will be signed committing the adopter to perform the procedure as soon as the puppy is deemed ready by a veterinarian. This will be done no later than 6 months of age.
Our animals are rescues. We sometimes don't know everything about the animal as they are usually in our care for a short period of time. We disclose EVERYTHING are aware of at the time of adoption. We cannot be responsible for an issue that occurs weeks or months or years after the animal is adopted.
Opening your heart and your home to a rescue animal is a commitment. It is not for as long as the dog is easy to care for, or, for until you get tired of it. It is for the life of that animal. We will be very selective as to who we allow to adopt our angels. We expect you to be open and honest during the adoption process.
