Ashland Ruby's Story
Ruby is a 2-3 year old, 75 lb., Hound mix. She is a very gentle, kind and loving dog. Ruby likes to snuggle and is always ready to give love and affection, she actually looks in your eyes lovingly and deeply. Ruby does exceptionally well with my grandkids (ages 8 and 2) and is very easy going and friendly. She also does well with my dog which is a 3 yr old Shepherd Mix (high energy), same with my friends' 2 dogs. Overall Ruby is very well behaved and can be left alone without issue or problems (I did not crate her). She is pretty quiet and believe her barking is mostly provoked by my dog. She has responded very well to training, such as no longer running out door/yard and is getting better on the leash. She can get possessive of our attention at times but has settled in after being disciplined This pet's adoption fee is $425

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals. Please note that our pets come from shelters, so we CANNOT guarantee age, breed, mix of breeds, or adult size.
For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home.
An application does not obligate you to adopt, and can be transferred to any pet. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the pet you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call within 7-10 days. If you would like to transfer your application to a different pet, please submit an adoption application transfer request. You will need the application number and email address from your original application.
We are a foster-based rescue and do not have a shelter location where pets can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a pet in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal.
Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!
