If you have a tennis ball that wants a playmate, Ruby Red is your girl! This funny girl loves to play with her tennis ball, chasing after it every time it's thrown. She does entertain herself with it, smiling with her tongue hanging out.

Ruby has been a great momma. Her puppy has been adopted, so now she is ready for her forever home. She has gotten her girlish figure back already. Since she is only 1 year old, she still has plenty of puppy playfulness. Now in foster care, she loves her people, enjoying their affection and head petting. When new people come to visit and sit on the couch, she's happy to introduce herself. She has fun with her fosters' two dogs, wanting to chase and play with them. She's a house-trained girl who's learning to sit on command. She does well in her crate while her fosters work during the day, and sleeps there quietly through the night.

This active girl will enjoy a home with a medium-sized dog buddy to play with and chase if you have one or plan on getting more furry friends. She is heartworm positive, but all that means is that she'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come meet Ruby! Offer her a tennis ball and she'll follow you home.
Come meet your new best friend
