Ruby's Story...


I'm a happy girl despite being down on my luck lately, somehow ending up at the pound as a stray which was very stressful. When I was saved by Forte Animal Rescue, I did not really know how to behave in the world and I needed some guidance. They sent me to a doggie bootcamp where I learnt how to behave around people and other dogs, and so now I have improved manners and I am a lot more obedient than I was. I even earnt the nickname "Miss Smarty Pants" as I am apparently also very clever. Please look at my video where you can see what I learnt while I was there! I am still young and love to play. I have that puppy energy you know! My ideal home would be with another dog who loves to play as much as I do. That would be a dream come true! But I can be an only dog as long as I have a family who understand and love my need to play. I also need daily walks and would make a great running or hiking partner. I just need someone to take good care of me, love me and never let me go. I love to give kisses and be held. Please come and meet me if you think you can give me what I need! I promise I am worth it!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ruby, a Marina del Rey Dachshund/Australian Kelpie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Australian Kelpie for sale in Marina del Rey, or seeking a Dachshund/Australian Kelpie dog from a breeder in Marina del Rey.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Marina del Rey already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Marina del Rey breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund/Australian Kelpie breeders who help with Dachshund/Australian Kelpie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marina del Rey paves the way for another one to be saved.
