From the Foster:
Ruby is a very outgoing little dog; what she lacks in a tail, she makes up for with excitement for life. She LOVES her toys - particularly pulling all the fluff out! While she is a master at playing with toys on her own, a family who will spend time with her working out some of her energy would be best. Conveniently, she is an excellent walking or running partner; despite her small size, she keeps a fast pace and is careful to not get in the way. She is friendly with other dogs, but does occasionally resource guard high-value objects and takes a little bit of time to warm up to some dogs.
Crate and potty training are not an issue, and she is eagerly learning new tricks. Ruby is an expert at burrowing under the covers and likes to snuggle after play time. She also enjoys being carried.
Belly rubs and head scratches are preferred and generously reciprocated with kisses, but she isn’t demanding and is content just to be close to her people.
Ruby would do best with no small children as she tends to be a bit mouthy when she plays.
She would do well in a house with no other dogs, or with dogs willing to share all of their toys and play with her.
Ruby will need a forever family willing to work with her to gain confidence and learn to be more trusting.
