Ruby is the most fun-loving pooch to ever! This larger than life girl is an all-star performer when it comes to being pampered: butt scratches, belly pets, and ear rubs are all her top favourite activities. Ruby has excellent leash manners but certainly needs to spend more time walking so that she can drop some pounds so she can get to a healthy weight (but for now it is just more to love). Ruby is a sensitive girl that is looking for a home that understands her temperament as she can be quite shy of new people and situations. When she is unsure of what is happening, Ruby tends to prefer to shy away so is in need of confident owners that can give her the confidence to face these new adventures in a positive way. Given her love of food, Ruby responds very well to positive reinforcement training and enjoys the challenging of learning new commands. She can be nervous of loud noises and when things are just a little to fast and chaotic, so with this worry-bug attitude, Ruby would do best in a home with no young children. Ruby’s constant in life has been her older sister Porscha who she hasn’t spend a moment away from since 6-months old. Ruby and Porscha are ready to embrace their next journeys away from each other but Ruby thinks a canine companion or a human-friend that is home often would be great.. If you would like to double up on the love in your home, submit an application today.
