RUBY

Add to my favourites

Remove from my favourites

Ruby is a 13 years young Labrador, sadly looking for a new home for her retirement.

She's come into our care as she was an unclaimed stray with a very nasty abscess on both sides of her muzzle, from an untreated bite wound.
We discovered from her microchip, that her owner had died a year ago, but that no one wanted to claim her back. How very sad for Ruby.

Ruby had surgery to clean and repair her wounds (which went right into her gum - so a nasty bite) and is in a temporary foster home recovering.

She's a lovely girl, who is very sprightly despite her years. She is in a multi dog household, and although she rubs along with them well, there seems to be an element of stress as she does hump them ( humping is also a response to stress or over excitment ). So perhaps being an only dog might be best for her.

She also needs her person to be around for most of the day, or able to take her out on their travels/chores. As so far she has been barking when left, as she is likely feeling anxious. But she will make a great companion for the right person and will make you feel very special with her affection and devotion.

She is playful and sweet natured, loves to trot around holding her teddies, pottering about with you. She's completely house trained (although always expect accidents at the start).

If you can offer Ruby a home for her retirement, or even a temporary foster home please get in touch. Complete our online form at the following link https://form.jotformeu.com/40501581675352
