**Available for Adoption** Miss Ruby

Ruby is a female GSD-blend at just 55 pounds and is approximately 5-years-old. Ruby is super sweet and loving, careful and cautious when meeting new people, but warms up and bonds quickly. She is housebroken, up to date on shots, microchipped, heartworm negative and recently spayed. Ruby is quieter in nature, though she will bark for a few things. She walks on a leash and is learning to sit. Ruby’s perfect home would consist of a calmer home and environment with children over the age of 10. We do not know if Ruby has met a cat in her past. She has exhibited the ability to coexist with other dogs and is very playful at times. We do not know about smaller dogs or cats. Ruby would benefit from continued training/socialization. She has a low-moderate activity level and would love to go on a few leisure walks a day. Would you love to welcome Ruby to your family?

Meet Miss Ruby an approximately 5-year-old GSD blend. She is super sweet and loving, careful and cautious when meeting new people; we suspect that she will get less so as she continues to understand that people are her friends again. She is housebroken, up to date on shots, microchipped, heartworm negative and under a treatment for her skin. Ruby will be spayed as soon as the veterinarian says the health of her skin is stable. Ruby is quiet for the most part and likes to go for walks. She has been introduced to a leash, but does not seem to know sit or any basic commands. Ruby’s perfect home would consist of quiet home with a calmer environment. We do not know if Ruby has met a cat in her past. She seems willing to meet other dogs, but needs slow introductions.

Ruby’s rescue story begins on 05/28/2019, when she was picked up by animal control in the Eagle Creek (Oregon) area. Her condition whispers of neglect for some time; her beautiful reddish coat was half missing, skin full of yeast and infection from the continuous biting of fleas, her nails were unbelievably long and she weighed just 49 pounds. She had also whelped puppies in the recent past. She spent almost a month in the shelter, healing her broken body and spirit. On 06/22/2019, SWB entered into her rescue journey.
