Meet Ruby Red - a stunning, pocket-sized chocolate-y lab mix. At just under 2 years old, Ruby Red is in that sweet spot just past the puppy stage with her full life ahead of her.

Ruby Red lives in foster with several other doggie siblings she does quite well with. Ruby also attends daycare on the weekends at the shelter to socialize with various other types of pups, where she fits in nicely with our gentle / dainty crowd. Ruby Red also attends our Total Obedience Program on Sundays, where she perfects her basic obedience skills on leash around new people and pups.

Aside from doggos, tennis balls (especially ones that squeak!) can keep Ruby entertained for hours. She loves to zoom around the yard, fetching for her fosters (or often all by herself!), smiling and tongue hanging out - whether it's Tuesday or not!

Ruby Red is crate and house trained and doesn't even mind being left home alone. After patiently waiting for you, she'll greet you with a sweet smile and wagging tail as she looks forward to hearing all about your day. Aside from playtime, Ruby Red's other favorite activity is laying beside you cuddling, while you relax or binge watch your favorite tv shows.

Click the blue button to find out more about Ruby Red! You can also catch her at the shelter most weekends. If you bring her a tennis ball, you'll likely find yourself a new best friend and forever love!
