My Ideal Home: Ruby is a super sweet little girl who loves to play and cuddle. She makes loving companion because you will always find her by your side! Medically, Ruby has had some small hurdles. When young, she slipped a disc in her neck and now requires a crate with plenty of space and food/water bowls that are elevated. She has had muscle spasms in the hind quarters before and required muscle relaxants to relieve the pain. Allergies have been her largest issue which seem to be related to a combination of food and environmental factors. She currently requires a special diet and is on medication to help with the itching and inflammation on her stomach and ears. Her new forever home will need to watch her diet and be diligent with her allergies and skincare. Speaking of diet, Ruby loves her food and will dance when it's mealtime! She is also parched and loves to drink water. Her previous owner stated that she will gulp down an entire bowl so fast that she might spit up a little. So, her water bowl is filled slightly and frequently. Vets did detect a heart murmur on Ruby but at this time vets recommend just monitoring it. Ruby gets right down to business when it is potty time. She zips out and back in as soon as possible (not sure if this is due to our fine Ohio winter) She has not had an accident in the house, but she is encouraged to go out every 4-5 hours. It was stated that she was crate trained, but she is perfectly behaved with free roam of my house. It has been stated that Ruby could be a flight risk and needs to be on a leash outside. Her ideal home would have a fence or an owner who is willing to take her out frequently with a leash. Having said all of this, Ruby is such a precious little girl. She has such loving eyes and just wants a home who will dote and love on her!
