Ruby's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

Ruby's Story...
She is really a good girl. Once, she gets to know you and establish a bond, she is an affectionate, friendly girl. In fact, she thinks she is a big lap dog! Lots of attention is a must; Ruby will follow you around the house like your shadow to remind you to rub her head gently She loves to be petted and wants to sit next to her foster mom and hang out! When she lays down she crosses her paws which is so adorable!

She loves to play with her squeaky toys and grabs them and runs through the house! She'll play tug with me and never puts her teeth on a human.

She listens fairly well. Comes when called, lays in her bed when told and stops barking when asked! She wants to please.

She's not great on leash but I believe that is because she is so fearful outdoors. She is doing well on housetraining and crate training and does get along with other dogs once their hierarchy is in place.

Edob is 11/08 and weight about 55 lbs

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ruby, a Houston Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Houston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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 Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
