RUBY is a gem of pure love and affection. She has so much love to give her petite body of 29 pounds can hardly contain it. She is believed to be about a year old. RUBY wants to be everywhere you are, following you around like a shadow eager for attention and direction. If you are not paying enough attention to her she will start talking to you and let you know just how she feels, she can be quite the conversationalist. 

RUBY does not have quite the intensity of a regular Border Collie however, she does require regular exercise. Her and the puppy spend much time rolling around with each other, playing with their chew toys and especially chasing each other all over the yards. RUBY will require some basic obedience training to build her confidence and bond but she is a fast learner and very food motivated. She learned the doggie door in her foster home within a day. RUBY can be a bit shy upon first meet but once she knows you, she is your Velcro love for life. RUBY will retreat to her crate for some quiet time but in the end prefers to be with her human and dog pack. There are no cats or small children in the foster home but she is not quick to react and is very responsive to calm voice commands and lots of praise.

RUBY is that extraordinary loving dog looking for that special home to call her own, the one that will love her unconditionally along with lots of exercise and praise.

RUBY is micro-chipped, spayed, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations.
