Adoption Pending :)
Adoption Area: East Tennessee

Ruby needs: Hi, my name is Ruby. I am a 7-year-old, 7.8-pound female Poodle. I am a very sweet girl who loves my people. I also get along well with my foster fur sister. I love to follow you around and am content to lie in your lap or in a dog bed close by. I am a little needy and will whine if you get out of my sight or leave me. So an appartment would not be a good place for me. I would do best with someone who is home most of the day and/or have a fur buddy to keep me company.

I am completely housetrained and have had no accidents since coming into foster care. I walk well on a leash attached to a harness and love to go for walks. I am friendly with people that I meet, but big dogs scare me. My foster home has a fenced yard that I love to explore and find a sunny spot to lie in. As I have gotten comfortable in my foster home, I have started to play with toys and my fur foster sister. When I get excited, I twirl in circles, always going counter clockwise! When my foster parents take me for a walk, I always hold still for them to attach my leash. I sleep quietly all night in my kennel beside my foster parents’ bed. I even take naps in my kennel sometimes during the day. When I came into foster care, my fur was long and matted. It had to be shaved down to get rid of the mats and my coat is slowly growing back in. To avoid that happening again, I will need regular grooming.

When I had my vet appointment, I was found to be healthy except needing a dental, where I lost 10 teeth! Even so, I have no dificulty eating kibble. I also had a dewclaw removed, as it was just hanging and loose. I am on monthly heartworm and flea prevention. All of my vaccines are up to date and I am spayed and microchipped. My adoption fee is $175.
