Pet of the Week: Ruby

Becky's Pet Care


This is a sponsored post by Becky’s Pet Care, which has provided quality pet sitting services to the area since 1998.

Meet Ruby, a Boxer with a disability who is looking for a new home with a lot of attention.

Here is what the people at Boxer Rescue and Adoption have to say about her:

Ruby is totally deaf, but one very smart Boxer. She was adopted, but she didn’t cope well with long hours alone. Her previous adopter loves her and takes her for weekend visits. We joke and call it Rent-A-Ruby time.

Ruby gets along well when playing with other dogs, but not when it involves special treats. That’s why we said no dogs or small children. She is VERY smart and makes intense eye contact. She follows hand and signal commands. For example, if I want her to come in, I flip the spotlights on and off, she looks my direction and comes running.

She is affectionate and loving, but needs someone who isn’t gone all day long or will need to go to doggie day care. If you are interested in Ruby or any of our other rescues, please email [email protected] for an adoption application, then arrange a time to meet her.

Are you and Ruby a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.
