a gem to treasure

Ruby loves to lie in the sunshine, get belly rubs, and cuddle. She is potty trained, trustworthy in the house, and can even use a doggie door. She is so easy-breezy - she will chill on the couch with you or go with you on walks--whatever you like! Although it's a plus if you have one, she does not require a fenced yard because she walks so well on a leash.

Ruby is a quiet girl  and is a little shy when meeting new people.  But once she gets to know you, there will be smooches, playing and all the fun things dogs like to do.  Because she's shy, Ruby finds young children a bit scary, so she will do better in a home with older family members. Ruby loves being the top dog and would do best in a home without other canines or felines. 

Ruby is looking for a caring and compassionate family that will work with her to build her confidence. Are you that family? Ruby would love to meet you! Ruby is currently living in a foster home, call the shelter to make an appointment to meet her or fill out an adoption application and lets get this adoption started!
