Ruby is a very special girl. She was found almost dehydrated, emaciated, and covered with sarcoptic mange. (See photo #5). She was so weak she could hardly stand, so we did not realize how un-socialized she was. As soon as she could get around, we found out how absolutely scared of everybody and everything she was, Weve had her 5 months now (Oct.), and she has come a long way. She gained 20 lbs. since she was found, her coat is a beautiful silky red, and she is getting more and more sociable every day. She loves to go for long walks, she plays with her dog friends at the dog park, she has been going to obedience class at Bon-Clyde, and she is learning to accept people. She is housebroken, crate trained (although she does not need to be crated), loves her toys, and gets along great with her foster-doggie-siblings. She is still very shy with people she doesnt know, so it will take someone who has worked with very shy dogs (dogs that have had little socialization) to adopt her. She is a very smart girl and loves the people she knows. If you think Ruby is the girl for you, call Naomi at 910-528-6588.
