My Personality & Needs

Ruby has a great outlook on life. She seems to love everyone she meets. Sonja likes to play with just about any type of toy you put in front of her. She knows the command 'sit', 'down' and 'shake'. Adopters should get her into obedience classes not just to bond with her but to help her keep up her social skills.

Recommended Households:
Ruby should adjust to any type of household, she's very sweet and adaptable, and just easy going. Her previous owner stated she will bolt out the door so small children should be supervised with her to ensure she does not escape. Crate training is recommended for house training a dog or puppy as it is the most efficient and effective method- it also helps prevent destructive chewing, door darting, and gives a dog a place to retreat. Recommend a positive reinforcement training class to instill good dog manners, provide socialization, and build a strong dog/adopter bond- This dog has a voucher for discounted classes.
