Animal ID: 1005Ruby SPONSORED (female)

Rat Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Hi there. My name is Ruby. I am 1 %BD years old and I weigh about 25 lbs. I was found as a stray in the Wellsville area. It was freezing cold and on a night when we were hit with a snowstorm. I was emaciated (weighing in at only 15 lbs at the time) and scared to death of everyone and everything. I was starving so finally the girl who came out to get me was able to catch me by using some yummy food. I have been here at the pound since January now and I am really hoping to find a new home with a family to love soon. I have came around so much since I have been here. I used to huddle up in the corner and shake uncontrollably. Now I prance ... (Read More)around hen I am in my kennel and make some noise to get people's attention on me! Boy, let me tell ya, I love attention! I totally adore being petted and loved and I have even became a great lap dog and professional cuddler since I have been here. I love to put my front paws on your lap while you're sitting down and reach up to give you kisses and gentle nibbles on the nose. I love being in the office! My favorite part is that is quiet and a girl can catch a real good nap in here on these super soft and cozy beds. Also, I am a totally awesome door greeter! 'Hi welcome to the CCDP! Now reach down here and give me some love!''| That's what I would say if I could actually talk!! That would be so cool! I love other dogs, so I would love to have a new dog friend when I find a new family, but don't fret if you don't have another dog but would like to adopt me 'cause I am also just fine with being the only dog. That just means more attention for me, right?! I am a very sweet and playful girl with the other dogs. I have also learned all about playing with toys since I have been here and let me tell ya'| That is a really fun game!! I don't really know how to fetch or anything yet, but I do love chasing and grabbing the toys you through for me. My favorite toys are those really fuzzy ones. I try to be very gentle with them, but sometimes I get a little too rough and they squeak'| yikes! I stop and look around to make sure nobody seen me hurt the little fellows and then go back to it. What a fun thing it is. So, I do have a couple of things that some people might consider 'issues' and some people might not, so I will lay them out for you'| I have had some kind of head trauma. The pound isn't really sure what happened since I was just a stray, but the vets guess is that I was likely kicked in the head or hit in the head with something. Needless to say, I now have a slight neurological glitch, which to me isn't a big deal 'cause I am such a happy go lucky girl now that it doesn't even bother me. Some people don't want me now, though, because I am a little bit 'different'. You see, I walk just fine for the most part, however sometimes I do spin in circles sometimes, especially when I get excited. I also have no vision in my left eye. My eye functions normally, I just cannot see out of it. Because I came in to the pound nearly starved to death and I never knew where my last meal was coming from, naturally I am a bit of a food guarder with both dogs and people. My food guarding has subsided substantially since I have been here and I am now being fed regularly, but it is still there sometimes so I need to be fed separate from the other dogs at me new home. Aside from the couple of said 'issues' I am quite an awesome little girl if I do say so myself and I am really hoping to find a new home soon so please consider adopting me!! I appear to be in good health. I have been given my Parvo/ Distemper vaccine and I have been dewormed with panacur dewormer. I AM SCHEDULED TO BE EUTHANIZED ON : FEBRUARY 5TH. IF MY EUTHANASIA DATE AND TIME ARE ABLE TO BE EXTENDED IT WILL BE. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS AS I AM NOT IN URGENT NEED OF A HOME BECAUSE I AM. THIS IS DETERMINED ON A DAY BY DAY BASIS AS THE POUND'S SPACE IS VERY LIMITED. *********UPDATE******RUBY HAS JUST RECEIVED A SPONSORSHIP TO COVER ALL HER VETTING/ADOPTION FEES TO ANY APPROVED RESCUE. THANK YOU ANN HARPER FOR CARING ABOUT OUR DOGS AND HELPING THEM OUT!!! RUBY SENDS HER THANKS AND LOVE. MY ADOPTION FEE IS $110 CASH, WHICH COVERS MY SPAY SURGERY (WHICH MUST BE DONE PRIOR TO ME LEAVING THE SHELTER), MY PARVO/DISTEMPER VACCINE, RABIES VACCINE, DEWORMING AND MY CURRENT OHIO DOG LICENSE WHICH WILL BE HONORED THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF OHIO.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rat Terrier in Ohio
    Rat Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Ohio if they match your IifestyIe. The Rat Terrier is a small breed of hunting dog also sometimes known as a Feist. Rat Terriers are vivacious, playful, and bold. This breed is great with children. Adult Rat Terriers adapt well to adoption. Rat Terriers are very smart and trainable. This breed can live in an apartment but needs plenty of vigorous exercise each day. Rat Terriers enjoy romping in a fenced yard, but because they are enthusiastic diggers, fences should be buried or reinforced around the base.
