Ruth/Ruby

Ruby is an adorable petite girl who has beautiful eyes. She lovessss belly rubs and cuddling with her humans! Ruby take a little time to warm up to new people and will need continued reinforcement on how to greet new people. But once she knows you, she is your friend! Ruby will sometimes try to jump up on people, so that’s something she’s been working on. But she’s getting better. Ruby loved her known people, but she can be barrier reactive to people she doesn’t know. She will need continued work on that. A home with a privacy fence would be in her best interest at this point in her training. She also tends to be leash reactive. Continued obedience training and socialization will help her with these issues. Ruby is a 3 year old, 78 lb mixed Rottie with a little bit of puppy energy left but mostly she is a calm and low key lapdog. She loves to lay on her back and snore a little while enjoying those endless belly rubs. She is house trained. We have left her in a crate and mud room with no accidents. Ruby loves walking, sniffing, rolling around in the grass, chasing toys, chewing bones and running in circles hopping around like a kangaroo when the mood strikes. She has a few basic commands but she is learning more basic obedience. Once she has mastered all the basic commands such as stay, come and heel, she will be an awesome best friend for life. She is getting better each day with her manners. She is very food focused along with positive reinforcement. Ruby would do better in a home with humans to lover her buy not so much with other animals. She gets very excited when she sees cats, dogs, horsed, geese or stuffed animals. When she learns more self control through basic obedience she might do better with other animals over time, but at the moment any moving object is a challenge to be played with. On her first day in rescue, Ruby managed to get close enough to a kitty for one second to say hi and ended up with a quick claw to her right eye which ended in surgery to save her eye. She has healed but still has a scar in her eye which may affect her vision slightly.

Temporary 30-Day Freeze on Intakes: Due to the influx of rotties recently brought into MARR with medical issues requiring treatment and surgery, MARR is placing a temporary freeze on intake processing, effective 5/4/22.
