Meet Ruby! 8 weeks Shepherd/pit max 10.5 pounds Ruby came to us from Tennessee along with 7 of her brothers and sisters. She is a beautiful, spunky and fun puppy with beautiful iced blue eyes! She is crate trained and she does enjoys her quiet time in the crate. Ruby is working on really hard on her house breaking. She can be left alone for a couple hours at a time in the crate or a fenced in area. She gets along very well with her litter mate, she loves playing with her older foster brother/dog and two foster cats. Ruby gets along with all people, she is extremely adventurous and wants to be involved in everything going on. She is working on walking with the leash and she loves to run in the back yard. She loves to play tug of war with a rope! She also loves chew bones and her favorite activity is running into your arms when you call her! Ruby is looking for her fur-ever home! Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special needs and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email [email protected] for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed.
