Ruby is as precious as her jewel name.(Last Updated On: November 15, 2020)
Ruby came to Friends for Life from a home where she lived with four other dogs and at least two cats. Her family made the difficult choice to surrender her when they realized she had a dislocated hip that required a surgery they just couldn’t afford – they wanted her to have her best chance. Ruby is healing wonderfully and learning to use her leg again!
Such a lover! Ruby is quite a lap dog. She loves to curl up on the couch with you and lay her nose on your shoulder and nuzzle in for a nap. She looks at you with her giant, brown, soul-melting eyes while trying to get as close to you as possible!
Learning and Growing: Ruby is still a puppy and working on her house manners. She’s doing quite well with potty training and learning what is and isn’t for chewing. With enough toys, Ruby can entertain herself while you go about your day. She is also working on her crate training. She sleeps there through the night and is working on being left home alone for periods of time.
Silly and playful: Ruby loves to play with her toys, especially bones she can chew. She really enjoys playing with her fosters but isn’t quite confident enough to play with their adult dog. She loves to sniff out lizards and watch the squirrels but doesn’t bark often at them
