And now a few words from me:
Hello everyone! My name is Ruby and I like to run, run, run and play, play, play. If you want to go walking for miles, I’ll go! If you want to throw my ball a million times, I’ll fetch it for you! I can never get enough of it. But I like my down time too. Would you like to sit on the couch and read? I’ll help! I would much rather sit with you than be in my bed. I am really enjoying my foster home with my foster brother and foster sister. They help me get my exercise. They are nice to me and let me play with their toys, although sometimes my foster sister will still try and sneak them away. My foster Mom and Dad have introduced me to some cats and I had a good visit. I know it’s time for me to find my forever home and I look forward to settling down with my new forever family.
And now a few words from my foster family:
Ruby is a fantastic dog. She is always happy and wagging her tail. It never stops. She loves to make eye contact and it looks like she has a big smile on her face all of the time. Ruby was a bit on the hefty side when she came to stay with us, but with a better diet and some exercise she has lost over two pounds. She is the first one at the door when it is time to go for a walk and she has no problem with wearing a harness. We also figured out that she loves balls and will play fetch with us until we are tired of it. She, however, does not get tired of it! She is in great shape. Ruby always likes to be with her family and there is rarely a moment when we are out of her sight. Ruby’s house training is coming along when kept on a routine. She has been really great with visitors and she was good with our friend’s cats when we took her for a visit. Ruby will be a wonderful addition to her forever family.
