Ruby is a bright, sparkling gem ready to be adopted!

She is a unique black labrador/border collie mix, with high energy and a goofball personality, with a white stripe down her snout! She has the heart of sweetness and is a little shy when you first meet her, but give her a chance to just steal your heart and she will!!
Ruby LOVES to play tug of war with her friends all the time and I really would be best with another calm and confident dog to help me be more social.

Some basic information about Ruby; she is female, Black Labrador/BC mix, and is expected to be medium-sized (20-59lbs) when fully grown.

Something to Consider:

  • Puppies don't train themselves

    If you aren’t willing to train a puppy every single day, don’t get a puppy! It isn’t a one-shot deal. You have to be dedicated. And if you aren’t making progress – find someone who can help. Enroll in a puppy training class or hire a trainer. Most cities across the nation have some sort of availability for this kind of help and at different cost levels that would fit your budget.

     

    Puppies are going to poop a lot and pee even more; chew on everything; bite everyone; scratch people and furniture; steal things; destroy something at some point; pull on the leash; not move at all on the leash; bark; cry; beg for attention; and the list goes on. You’re going to have to walk them, bathe them, pick up everything below waist height, buy new shoes, and most importantly: TRAIN THE PUPPY NOT TO DO THESE THINGS! Ultimately, it is your responsibility to teach your puppy that this behavior is unacceptable.

  • Puppies turn into dogs...
