Biography

Ruby is a sweet, curious, 1 year old, mix breed puppy. She loves playing fetch, going for walks, chewing toys, and exploring her world. Once she has all her energy out she loves to cuddle with her humans for as long as you’ll let her. Ruby would do best in a home with multiple people where they can give her ALL the attention. She is very social and would be great in a home with other dogs, but this is not a requirement. She would benefit from having an all adult home as she has shown some resource guarding behaviors.

An ideal environment for Ruby would be in the suburbs or a rural area with a yard. She is fully house trained and up to date on vaccines and flea, tick, and heartworm prevention. Her foster mom would like to donate Ruby’s items such as a crate, bed, food bowls, leash, and toys for her new family to use.

Ruby was found as a stray and has shown some behaviors that her new family would need to work through with her. She needs someone that will move slowly with her to build trust as certain things can trigger her. Some of her fears are putting on her harness and men that she doesn’t know moving toward her. She has resource guarding behaviors and this can translate to being protective of her human if strangers are approaching. With proper introductions she loves people! All in all Ruby is an amazing dog that will make a fantastic addition to the right family.

Cues Ruby knows:
“Go to your crate”
“Sit”
“Lay down”
“Let’s go”
“Find it”
“Shake/Paw”
“Get your ball”

A DNA test confirmed Ruby is most similar to these breeds: mix breed, Collie, Border Collie, Bull Terrier, Labrador Retriever, German Spitz, American Staffordshire Terrier, and German Shepherd. The test did not find any health or disease predispositions.
