More About Me
Someone who is home more often than not looking for a devoted, affectionate and steadfast full time companion.
As Ruby wants all the attention she should be the only permanent dog in the home.
Ruby is people orientated and needs to be part of family activities.
She will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters, time poor or novice dog owners.
Medium - playful and moderately active (can miss a daily walk).

Like most dogs she starts off pulling but settles.
When OFF a lead ...
Takes off and won't come back.
Type of Yard Required
Medium to large interesting and secure.
She may take advantage of an open gate and wander off but does not usually try and escape. She needs shoulder height fencing all the way to the ground. Ruby may dart through an open gate or door and take off. At the moment she tends to be destructive if left alone.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Ruby barks when alone especially if outside.
She will suit any of the following:
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Ruby is sweet, affectionate and warm with people - not so good with other dogs that come into her space.
Once the 'apple of mum's eye' things changed after having a baby and now Ruby is not getting the attention she craves. This has lead to some anxiety and why she does not like being left alone. This may improve once in the right home.
Ruby is a loyal companion and will shadow her owner around the home or garden all day.
Ruby has a special ability and can 'tune in' to the emotions of her owner. She has provided much needed support through dark times.
