"RUBY" UPDATE affectionate, playful Boxer mix

Aug 6, 2015

Available for adoption with Multnomah County Animal Services!

here's my Mcas weblink 

Hello, my name is Ruby! Let me tell you about myself, I am smart, active, playful, housetrained, and ride nicely in cars! My family is no longer able to take care of me so I'm searching for that special someone to bond with. I love the simple things in life, like cuddling and rolling in the grass. I've been attending finishing school here at the shelter with our trainers and I'm so bright and fun to train that I've become a bit of a teacher's pet! ;) They've conditioned me to a clicker to accelerate my training and boy has it worked! So far, I've learned to sit/stay, down/stay, give eye contact, walk nicely on a leash and I'm doing very well passing dogs on walks. My previous owners told the shelter that I have had issues guarding food from other dogs. When I first arrived at the shelter, I was reactive towards other dogs. I've made a ton of progress through training and I'm looking for a family who will continue my training. My ideal family will not have young children since I'm about 70lbs and 3 years old and don't quite know my own strength when I'm excited. I have lived with a large male dog before and likely could again with a slow introduction but ideally, I'd be an only pet. The shelter is requiring a private consultation with a trainer for whoever ends up adopting me!
Ruby on KOIN Second Chance today!

It's too hot to walk on the pavement today!

    Ruby is a very special girl who has been through a lot. She rides great in cars, walks great on a leash, she is doing fantastic with her training! She loves giving kisses and she loves sitting on laps believe it or not!
