RUBY l Red-Tri l Female spayed l 45lbs. l 7 years old
Meet Ruby, one part to a three dog combo that came into the rescue together. They were kept together outside for their entire lives. As you can imagine she has over come a lot of obstacles and still has a lot of work to do! When we first picked her up she was with her dad, Samson. They had been inseparable and this is the first time she’s had to live without him. She wouldn’t even move when we first put her on a leash and in the house she wouldn’t leave the bedroom. Now she runs to the door for walks, loves to get her belly rubbed, and greets us at the door when we come home. She is still a little shy and takes a while to warm up, but she gets better and better every day. She doesn’t care to play, but she loves to cuddle! She does fine with other dogs and older kids. She’s not been around little kids and cats, though I wouldn’t see it being a problem. She would do best in a home where there is a visible fence. When she gets scared she does try to run away. She is a fairly low energy Aussie, but she definitely enjoys her daily walks. She does better on a leash than any dog I’ve ever had. I put her in her harness on a leash belt and I don’t even notice she’s there. She also does great in a car. She is going to need a lot of love, compassion, and patience for her to fully feel comfortable in your home. If you are willing to take the time and effort for this beautiful girl she is definitely worth it ! She is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations (rabies, distemper, bordetella) and heartworm tested (negative), fecal tested (treated). Ruby is Micro-Chipped and takes preventatives each month of Heartgard Plus and Nexgard.
