Meet Ruby!
1-year-old, 45-pound Shepherd / Collie mix
House-trained, Crate-trained

Ruby is a smart and sweet girl who is eager to please and very curious! She learns quickly which means she easily picks up both bad habits and positive training. She is also very opinionated and is not shy about sharing her feelings making her very vocal. Our recommendation is that she does not go to a home with shared walls because of that and her future humans should be diligent about continuing training with her.

Ruby loves other dogs and responds well to their cues. She has shown some minimal resource guarding with toys with other dogs but her foster and her have been working diligently on that behavior. Ruby doesn’t quite understand that cats aren’t just tiny dogs and will chase them occasionally but responds well to a person or cat correcting her. She has had one brief interactions with older kids and did fine but are not sure how she would do with kids under the age of 10.

Ruby loves to cuddle on the couch but also needs daily mental stimulation whether through training or enrichment. For physical exercise, she currently spends an hour running/playing with other dogs and will need at least 60 minutes of dedicated exercise a day. She definitely needs a fenced in yard that is at least six feet tall as she easily jumps fence shorter than that.

Ruby does have some allergies and is currently taking allergy medication, which is helping. The vet is not sure yet what she is allergic to.

Ruby is an incredible girl who cannot wait to find her forever home!

Adoption fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm/Lyme test, all age-appropriate vaccinations (distemper, rabies, & Bordetella), HW and flea/tick preventative, and microchip implant and registration. Adoption fees INCLUDE a mandatory sales tax of 7.525%.

There is no guarantee of age and breed as a rescue animal's history is unknown. All ages and breeds are best guess.

Due to post-adoption services provided, we prefer to adopt within a 90-mile radius of Minneapolis; however, we will consider up to 250 miles if the adopter is willing to drive to cities as needed.
