TO BE KILLED – 8/24/2019
RESCUE ONLY . "Tree you are, / Moss you are, / You are violets with wind above them. / A child - so high - you are, / And all this is folly to the world." - A Girl, Ezra Pound
She is wiggly, sweet, affectionate, playful, absolutely adorable & people pleasing perfection. Ruby is incredibly endearing, soft, loving and she was a family pet who lived with 2 young children she adored and 2 other dogs who were her “pack.” Respectful, relaxed, & playful with all she adored her life and her family, & along with her sibling dogs, her life was complete. But her parents were absolutely negligent to the extreme in protecting their pups from escaping the yard & getting into mischief, & RUBY & her best friend & sister Sapphire would go on grand adventures that invariably would end in heartache. And now these perfect family pets are on the list – yes, both of them, because of the failure of their parents to secure their property & pups. . Ruby is a gem of a pup, she just did what any of our own dogs would do -- protect her kingdom from intruding dogs who were not part of her pack. She deserves a loving family, a competent family, an experienced #foster
who will keep her safe & confined to her own yard & home. .
Ruby is spayed & ready to go.
