Sweet little Ruby Sapphire, a 10lb Chihuahua mix who was surrendered by her owners because they were moving, is single and looking for love! It seems this girl may have had a pretty rough life before arriving at the shelter and now wants nothing more than her very own forever family who can help her feel safe and comfy. Ruby has made amazing progress in her foster home – From a scared dog who just wanted to be left alone, to an affectionate girl who seeks out love from those she has made a connection with. She comes further out of her shell each day, allowing her incredible personality to shine through. She is one of those dogs that will ‘thank’ you every day for rescuing her, giving out many kisses and snuggles, becoming your loyal companion for life. One of Ruby’s favorite things to do is going out for her daily walks around the neighborhood. Ruby walks well on her leash and has a blast scoping out everything that’s going on around town. She would love to be paired up with an active person who enjoys exploring the outdoors as much as she does! She’s a huge fan of toys and will bring them to you so she can play fetch or tug of war. She gets so excited to play, you will find it hard to resist her happy face when she brings you the toy back, repeating the game over and over again! Ruby is well behaved, but should definitely continue with training in her new home to help build her confidence and trust in people. She is doing great with learning basic commands such as sit & stay, as well as the all important drop it. She adores receiving treats for being a good student, to her it’s all fun & games! She is a very curious gal who will follow you around the house to make everything is a-ok! Ruby is a sensitive girl and isn’t a big fan of other dogs, cats, or children…they seem to stress her out quite a bit. Therefore she’d do best in a home without them and would make an awesome single companion! As active as Ruby is, she also knows how to take it easy. Whether it’s sitting quietly by your feet, or snuggling in your lap, she loves to chill out and relax once she’s all worn out. She’d thrive with a family that can take the time to help her along her journey of becoming a well rounded and amazing dog!
