My story

Name: Ruby
Breeds: Lab/Shepherd Mix
Age: Senior
Sex: Female
Size: Large

Ruby is an 8-9 year old lab mix looking for a new home without kids. Ruby is a wonderful dog, she is calm, sweet, loving and is known in a home. She is potty trained and crated trained (though probably doesn’t need a crate). Her ideal home would be a quiet, adults only home with no other animals or kids. You see when she there are other animals, people she doesn’t know or kiddos around they make her nervous and she guards food and resources from them. Her family has worked with her to try to make keeping her a possibility, but it just isn’t the best situation for anyone as Ruby is kept away from the kids and vice versa. The no other dogs/animals is again as she will guard resources from them. She is fine going for walks (ie won’t bother other dogs) and has some doggie friends she plays with. We know that a no kids, dogs, cats home is a tough ask but we know Ruby is worth it.

Requirements: No kids. No other pets

Adoption Fee: $350 + tax. This includes neuter/spay, current vaccinations as age appropriate, heartworm/tick testing in dogs over 8 months of age, deworming, microchip and current Heartgard and Nexgard preventatives.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

id you see a dog that caught your eye? Ready to start the adoption process? Happy to help! Feel free to email the dog's listed contact with any questions you have...the dogs live in our homes with us so we know them very well. Please fill out the preadopt application which is the first step to meeting/adopting a dog from HHK9. We read through the application, check references, and once approved (we aim for 24-48 hours to approve or deny depending on how quickly references reply), we set up a visit with you and the foster home or direct you to an adoption event to meet the dog(s). Fosters are more than happy to answer questions that arise. We all want a good match the first time, and a successful experience for the adopter and the dog. After meeting, you can choose to adopt if it seems like a good match. There is a 2 week trial on all adoptions to ensure there is time for the dog adjust and the fit between the dog and your home is right. We encourage adopters to give it a MINIMUM of a week. Returning a dog before that period means it never had a chance to settle in and show you what the true personality is like. Moving dogs between homes is stressful and not in the dog's best interests. We are here to support you after adoption also, answering questions and helping make the process as positive as we can. We highly recommend you read the tips in this packet (Adopting 101) before bringing your new dog home...it will help greatly ease the transition and make it a positive experience for everyone! Our adoption fees are non-negotiable and average about $385 for adults and $425 for puppies which includes their vet work-spay/neuter, vaccinations, heartworm testing (if old enough),microchip, deworming, and current preventatives. Often the vet costs far exceed the adoption fee, especially on our special needs dogs. We rely on adoption fees to be able to continue to rescue more dogs in need.

More about this rescue

We are dedicated to rescuing homeless and unwanted animals. We are a non-profit, 501(c) 3-tax exempt, no-kill dog rescue and placement organization based in Minnesota. Although our focus is primarily on rescuing dogs, we sometimes rescue cats & kittens as well. We are an independent organization and depend solely on adoption fees, fundraisers, and donations to operate. We receive NO government support. We try our best to match the dogs with the needs, wants, personalities, and lifestyles of potential adopters to ensure a healthy, happy, & permanent home. All Heading Home K-9 dogs must live indoors. Dogs are social pack animals by nature and we want them to be able to have all of the companionship, love, & attention they deserve, as well as a chance to bond with the family. We rescue all types of dogs, ranging from small to large breeds. Roughly 40% of the dogs we rescue are purebred while the other 60% are mixed breeds. We will tell you about each dog's history, personality, & behavior, including whether or not they are good which children and other pets, their exercise needs, & other important information.
