Ruby was saved by Flirting with Fido rescue out of Canada on her last day at the South LA County Shelter before being euthanized. She was brought in as a stray, and was pregnant. Per strict LA County shelter policy, the shelter aborted sweet Ruby's puppies when they spayed her.
Our neighbors Deanna and Trevor brought her to their cozy loving home to recover from her surgery, both physically and mentally.
She is a SWEET, gentle, mild-mannered approx 2 yr old girl. She is a huge lover, more interested in cuddles and kisses than anything else. She's dog friendly, crate trained, potty trained, great with kids, and an all around wonderful canine companion.

Our neighbors Deanna and Trevor are involved with several Pet Rescue Groups and will facebook stories about dogs who are in the kill shelters. We all hit "share" to spread the stories to our friends, then to friends of friends, etc. This sharing greatly helps some of the dogs to be saved....and go on to be adopted into loving homes.
I fell in love with Ruby... All she wants to do is cuddle and hold her pink pig. Being with her has been a unique experience.

The picture below is so cute of Ruby saying Thank You to everyone who contributed to her heartworm treatment.
I think I created this post more for myself...to have documented Ruby's story and to encourage anyone who reads it to maybe contribute to rescue dogs from the kill shelters or even adopt one.
It is good to have compassion.
