My story

MISS RUBY HAS FOUND HER PERFECT HOME

***Please consider being a foster mom and dad to a pet in need. It is a very rewarding experience and it will help save a dog's life.***

** Female, Yorkie
** 10, 7lbs
** House Trained for the most part if you take her out regularly
** Not a huge fan of her crate and prefers being with her person
** Good with dogs, unsure on cats
** Adoption fee $150

Health: Ruby is spayed/neutered, microchipped, wormed, flea treated, current on DHPP, Bordatella, and Rabies - Ruby was also groomed as she was very matted and needed to be shaved down. Ruby will be getting a dental on 6/6/22 Ruby lost most of her teeth and her bloodwork was fabulous with no issues at all.


More About Me: Welcome new arrival Ruby to rescue. Meet Ruby! Ruby is a 10 year old 7 lb female Yorkie. Her owner became very ill and our rescue was asked to help find her and her sister a new home. Her foster mom has two other small dogs - she gets along with them fine (doesn't play much with them but likes being near them). She loves her people and enjoys giving kisses. She is a very happy girl that loves companionship which is why she is not as fond of her crate but she does fine in her crate with Ceri. She is a super sweet little girl - took a few days to warm up but now she's my constant companion. Ruby is doing well on potty training - just open the door and out she goes - she also likes to soak up some sun when it's out! She seldom barks - and has pretty good house manners, she's great on a leash and would love to go for walks with you, if I hadn't been told her age I would have guessed much younger! Ruby and her sister Ceri are being fostered separately - but I'm sure they'd love being together again if you'd like to adopt them both!


History: Ruby's owner became very sick and the family took her and Ceri to be euthanized however the vet could not euthanize healthy senior dogs and reached out to have them join rescue to find a home. We are so glad to have her join us in rescue.

NWIPR IS AN ALL VOLUNTEER REGISTERED NON-PROFIT 501c3 PUBLIC CHARITY
Your adoption donation is used to care for and vet the many dogs that enter into rescue from overcrowded shelters where their time is running out-ultimately they are on death row. Your adoption donation goes directly to the care of the many dogs that enter into rescue. All dogs leave rescue vaccinated, sterilized, microchipped, wormed, flea treated, and medically checked out. In some cases they receive dentals, ear flush, surgeries, and so on to ensure that they are healthy and ready to be adopted. Your adoption donation is very much appreciated and needed to help care for the many needy dogs that enter into rescue.

NOTE: Please do not email for more dog info. This is all the info available until approved application is received and then you can talk directly to that dog's foster home for further info. Thank you!

NWIPR's adoption process includes completion of an adoption application, a vet check, screening, in person meeting, a home visit and a lifetime adoption contract. NWIPR is the pet's advocate and will select the most suitably matched home for the dog's general and unique needs, therefore adoptions are not done on a first come first serve basis. We reserve the right to refuse service and adoption for any reason.

PLEASE NOTE: The information contained within this pet's biography is based on observations from the current foster home. NWIPR is very honest about the pet's behavior and needs (and provides up to date information), we cannot guarantee they will behave in the same manner in a different environment with new owners as individual household dynamics vary greatly.

CONSIDER FOSTERING A DOG
***Do you or someone you know have the desire to help a rescue dog? If you have a loving heart, dog experience, a safe and secure yard and the notion to make a difference, please consider fostering a rescue dog. There are MANY dogs that we just do not have room for and just one person can make a world of difference to a dog that needs a safe place to rest his or her weary paws.....***

Why adoption is a great option

Ruby -- ADOPTED, a Lynnwood Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Lynnwood, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Lynnwood.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lynnwood 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 Lynnwood 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 Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lynnwood paves the way for another one to be saved.
