RUBY's Info...

RUBY's Story...
“RUBY” is a cuddly, cute, red, tiny Toy Poodle with a spunky attitude! She is a survivor and still ready to take on the world even with everything that it has thrown at her.

Ruby is also a little, sweet “Velcro” Poodle who loves attention and is always ready to be held, carried around and be loved. She will follow me all over the house and is the first Poodle to greet people and jump into any lap. Ruby will also just sit and watch everyone and everything going on around her.

Although she is tiny, she has an attitude which makes her not very popular with the other Poodles, so this little peanut needs to be in a home as an only dog. Ruby has just begun to play with toys and tries real hard to pick up a toy even with her disability. Ruby is not good walking on a leash, so a fenced yard or small pen will be required.

Ruby had been bounced around too much. From what information we received, she had been owned by a senior lady who was admitted into a nursing home. A family member took Ruby for one week before posting her for free on Facebook.

A friend, of a friend, of a friend had seen the posting and told Louise, who picked up Ruby. No information about Ruby such as any Vet work, how long she was with her senior owner or where she had come from was given to Louise.
However, after bringing Ruby home, Louise quickly realized how expensive her Veterinarian bill was going to be. Louise then contacted us and tearfully surrendered little Ruby. Thank you, Louise!

We immediately got this little princess to our Vet. There we learned that she is about 5 to 6 years old, 9 inches tall and a tiny 6 pounds. Her ears were flushed out and antibiotics were inserted.
Her mouth and teeth were black with rot while being painfully infected. A three hour difficult and expensive surgery was done to remove all of her teeth. Her mouth was so severely infected that the infection moved into her jaw bones.

Sadly, those bones were deteriorating, inflamed and infected, her lower right jaw broke during the extractions. A pin was placed into Ruby’s jaw bone to hold it together.

Her Vet bill was expensive; over $1,200.00 and that is with our discount. We do have access to some funds and greatly appreciate people who will be able to donate anything for Ruby’s needed Vet work.

Ruby’s mouth, ear infections and bladder infection have healed. She has now been Vet checked healthy, is very happy, running around, jumping on the furniture and eating a hard kibble just fine. Because Ruby now has no teeth, her tongue hangs out. Yet, isn’t she so cute? You and Ruby will also NEVER need to worry about any more dental work or expense!

Again, a fence yard or small pen will be required as Ruby will not walk on a leash. PLEASE no other dogs or small children.

To the right family, Ruby’s $300.00 adoption fee (plus $21.00 Minnesota state sales tax) will include our Vet records, a kennel, blanket, a new dog bed, leash, collar, a winter jacket and sweater, some yummy treats (which she will eat), various toys and a bag of dog food. Also all her shots are up to date, she has been heart-worm tested negative and placed on a preventative, Home Again micro chipped and registered.

We are NOT expecting any problems, but we do want to make sure everything is healing correctly. So Ruby will need to be returned to us in one month for our Vet to check her mouth again.
Then in 6 months, Ruby needs to come back and have a x-ray done to make sure the pin holding her jaw together is doing fine. Thank you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

RUBY, a Elk River Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) for sale in Elk River, or seeking a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) dog from a breeder in Elk River.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Elk River 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 Elk River 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 Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) breeders who help with Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Elk River paves the way for another one to be saved.
