A moderately active 1.5 - 2 year old lab mix who weighs about 45 lbs, Ruby has gentle disposition and easy going personality.
If Ruby had a theme song, it would be Carole King's 'Where You Go, I Will Follow'. She stays close to her foster family all day long. She hangs out where they are, doing what they are doing when she can; and waiting patiently and quietly when she cannot.
She is playful and loves playing with toys and other dogs as often as possible. While there is not another dog in Ruby's foster home, she interacts daily with dogs of all breeds and sizes at the dog park, on walks through the neighborhood and when friends' dogs come to visit/stay at her home.
Ruby gets her exercise on frequent walks (she's very good on a leash), hiking, playing fetch and running/playing with her family and dogs. She loves kids and knows how to be gentle in play.
While Ruby willingly goes into her kennel and doesn't mind spending time in it, she no longer needs to be kenneled when alone in the house. When it's time to wind down, Ruby settles in to one of her favorites spots with a bone or chew toy. At night, she sleeps in a bed near her foster parents' bed
Being eager to please and quick to learn Ruby has learned her basic commands quickly. She knows 'sit', 'come', 'wait', and 'down', drop it', 'off' and 'leave it'.
Ruby is confident and trusting. She looks to her people for leadership and can be a 'leaner' when in new circumstances; but joyfully and gently greets new people experiences. She travels well in the car and boat, and likes romping on a beach or in a pool
Known to 'spoon' and shamelessly request belly rubs, Ruby is an master snuggler.

Adoption Fee: $400
We are a Wisconsin state licensed dog rescue -WI# 402433
***We do not have a central adoption center at this time. All our dogs are in private foster homes within WI. At this time we only place our dogs in areas of WI. The breed of our dogs is our best guess with the help of our veterinarians.
If you are adopting an adult dog, which we consider 6 months of age or older, your adoption fee includes the following:
Spay/Neuter, Rabies and Distemper shots, dewormed, flea & tick preventative, heartworm tested and microchipped.
If you are adopting a dog younger than 6 months of age, the dog will be up to date on the shots as per the dogs age. The dog will be dewormed, flea/tick preventative and microchipped. We only spay/neuter our dogs by 6 months of age. If you decide to adopt a younger dog than 6 months of age, they will need to be spayed/neutered at one of our preferred clinics. This will be determined by your contract along with the month they should have their surgery. This is included in your adoption fee.
Once you are approved with our rescue, you can meet any one of our dogs within the fosters home. If you are interested in the dog you met, you can take the dog home under our mandatory foster to adopt program. You receive 5 days to see if the dog is the right fit for your home.
If it is, we will conduct the home visit and finalize adoption. If it is not, it is returned to the foster. We are happy to find you another dog that meets your needs in your home.
If a dog is listed as PENDING, a family has met the dog and planning on adopting the dog after the home visit has been conducted. We always suggest sending in an application for a dog because there are times where the dogs are given back to us under the foster to adopt program. There are many reasons dogs are returned but normally it just was not the right fit for all.
Please go to WWW.TAILWAGGERS911.COM under HOW TO ADOPT . We have an online application that is very easy to fill out.
