About Ruby - Adoption Pendin

Belgian Malinois
Age: Puppy
Sex: Female

Miss Ruby, a one-year-old, 50-ish pound girl, came to us with a very broken leg. After consulting with the best of the best we decided the best outcome for this girl would sadly be an amputation. But, just like many dogs we've rescued before her, she has recovered with literal leaps and bounds. She must feel so much better to not be in any pain. So, being a purebred Belgian Malinois, this young and extremely sweet beauty, will need her people to understand that she needs a job and craves being a working partner with and for them. She does well in a crate... for a little bit of time. She would prefer to be with her people as stated earlier. She gets along with other dogs and would be good with respectful children. Her special need is simply that you know she is a tripod and will need her folks to keep an eye an her and not expect her to be as completely agile as a four-legged dog. It may not hold her back - ever - but we wanted everyone to know. If you believe this girl is what you've been looking for, read on or go directly to It will be very helpful if you also include information of your experience with smart/herding breeds. All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - - the link is found of the Adoption Process page. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live. Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.
