Meet Ruby! She is an adorable petite female black Labrador Retriever approximately two years old. Ruby was surrendered to WCLRR when her owner suddenly passed away. She is a little shy and will need some time to adjust to a new home and family. When she first came to her foster home, she was very energetic, but as Ruby grew more secure in her surroundings, she calmed down and loved to spend time relaxing on the couch.
Ruby is thoroughly crate trained and sleeps through the night without making a peep. Ruby is completely housebroken and never had an accident in her foster home. Ruby learned some basic commands, but her new family will want to work on her leash skills and basic obedience training. She is a quick learner, and she is very observant and watches and listens for everything. She is also treat motivated, making her training easier.
Ruby loves getting belly rubs and hanging out with her foster family while watching TV or relaxing. Ruby also loves going for car rides. She would make a great hiking buddy or explore her family’s adventures.
Ruby loves playing fetch. Her new family should purchase a Chuck-It and lots of tennis balls. While Ruby was playing fetch at her foster home, she hurt one of her toes. After a trip to our veterinarian and an x-ray, it was determined to be a minor injury, and with some rest, she will be good as new.
Ruby has been seen trying to counter surf at her foster home; her new family needs to ensure no items are left on counters or tables she can reach. All medicine, candy, and food items, including remotes and eyeglasses, need to be kept away and out of her reach. In addition, Ruby’s home should have an ample supply of Nylabones and Kongs.
Ruby is currently fostered with a couple of big dogs and gets along fine with them. However, in her new home, another dog who is not dominant and is patient would be best. Ruby will also be fine as an only dog.
Ruby is spayed, up to date on her shots, and microchipped.
