Ruby came to live with us in October 2012. She was 11 months old at the time and had been rescued from a very difficult situation. She was lovingly cared for by a foster family in GRROWLS which set the stage for a successful transition to her forever home. Ruby was scared at first and was wary of us for nearly 2 weeks. She did make an immediate connection with our other rescue Barney, becoming fast and devoted friends. It’s hard to believe it’s only been about 3 months since Ruby came home, as she feels and acts like she’s been part of our family forever. She’s high energy, very happy, and is determined to be a lap dog…at 80 pounds. She’s a loving girl and very bright. We couldn’t imagine what home would be without her. We are grateful for the work done by GRROWLS and for making this wonderful adoption possible for us.
