Meet Ruby. She is an 8-year old miniature dachshund. She was an owner surrender due to no fault of her own. She does well with other dogs of all sizes. She does well with children, but we will only allow her to go to a home with children 8 years and older. She is only about 7 lbs and a senior dog and could easily get hurt in a home with smaller kids. She takes evening primrose oil in the mornings and wild salmon oil in the evenings. She is on a special diet due to her extreme allergies. She has to be on Venture Squid & Chickpea dog food specifically which is $70 for a 25 lb bag. Something to keep in mind before applying. We will have a full allergy list for you. She can be on Benadryl and has a topical spray if she gets itchy (she’s even allergic to grass!) but even with all these allergies, she’s a very happy dog. She is potty and kennel trained. She easily takes her pills and doesn’t mind getting her nails clipped. She loves to play and chew on toys (and also blankets so make sure they are her own). She barks when someone is at the door but she’s a relatively quiet dog otherwise. She’s a huge snuggler and would love nothing more than to live out her days snuggled on the couch watching Netflix with you. She is getting spayed and up to date on shots on May 23rd and then will be available for adoption.
