NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Ruby is a sweet and slightly shy pup, who is very affectionate once she has overcome her initial reserve. She is a gentle girl but has some spark and enjoys interacting with other friendly dogs. She is house trained but has been living outside for some time so may need some patient reminders about expected behaviour when she moves to her new digs. Ruby sleeps well through the night, travels happily in the car, and can cope with some alone time, as long as she has regular exercise and a chance to be with her pack when they are around. Ruby is a bit scared of water, and gets sooky when it’s time for a bath. Ruby has lived happily with Axel and another dog in the past. She is happy fitting into the pack, so would suit being a solo dog, or living with Axel or with another friendly dog. Ruby pulls initially on lead but settles fairly well and is fine passing other dogs when out and about. She is showing some of the stiffness of her years but is happy and active and should remain so with attention to her needs.

Ruby will do well in a range of (cat-free) homes where she has human and/or canine company. She has not been getting a great deal of exercise or contact beyond Axel in recent times and will benefit from some engagement activities and lead training with her people to build her confidence and remind her of expectations. She is responsive to her people so this should be pretty easy. Ruby will be okay if her people need to go out for work or play, provided she has a doggy friend or problem-solving games and toys to keep her busy. Ruby is new into our care and we will update her profile as we get to know her better.
