Ruby has not developed any new lesions now for over 2 months. She is feeling healthy and happy!
(She was on our Extensive Care for many months. You can read about it at here.)
She loves to go for car rides and to visit anyone, even the veterinary office. She loves adoption events where she is convinced all those people arriving want to see and pet her. She hasn’t lived with small children but was more than happy to let them pet her. However, she would be likely to steal food from them so she should go to a home where only older children live.
Like many beagles and other hounds, Ruby will not share her food. Even if she leaves a little, she will guard it until it is taken away. She doesn’t guard it from humans but no dog better try to get it or she will give them a major warning.
Ruby lives with other dogs of all ages and sizes. She does well with them most of the time but she wouldn’t mind if she was the only dog. She has not met any cats since we have had her so we are not sure how she would be with them.
Sometimes Ruby sleeps in a crate if there is an open one but she isn’t crated when humans are gone nor at night when they go to bed. She is housetrained but since she has a lot of beagle characteristics, she will need either a fenced yard or else to be leashed walked when she goes outside. She does not need a lot of exercise as she mostly likes to just wander around the yard or else lay just “chill out” when she is in the house.

Our application can be found online at here.
Our adoption fee for dogs that are not seniors is $220. All dogs are spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccines and heartworm.
Our adoption process includes an application, personal and vet reference checks, and a home visit. We do not ship dogs under any circumstances.
We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check our front page for the dates of our next Pet Parade. Appointments outside of Pet Parade to visit our dogs are only available after an application has been filled out, and processing has begun.
Please be kind to our volunteers. E-mail inquiries will be answered much faster than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.
