SPECIAL COVID NOTICE: We realize that many of you are home from work right now and adopting a dog seems like a great idea. Which, it may be! Or may not. Please think about what your life will be like once things go back to “normal.” Will you have enough time each day to dedicate to a dog, based on the dog’s individual needs? If you are looking for a dog to socialize with kids, other dogs, etc., please do not submit an adoption application, as we do not recommend that for any dog. Nor do we recommend dog parks or dog daycare. Visit the resources section of our website for more info on those topics.

Please note that none of our foster homes have children, so we have no idea how any of our dogs would do living in a home with kids and/or if they would enjoy it. None of our foster homes have cats either, so if you have a cat and are looking to adopt a dog, we can send you info for slow introductions which will require separating a dog from your cat for some time.

As for Ruby:

Amazing adopter needed for one very, very amazing dog! Ruby’s foster parents have fostered a ton of dogs over the years and Ruby is by far their favorite. She’s adorable for sure, with sweet, soulful eyes that will make you melt. But she also happens to be a very, very good girl. Ruby wants nothing more than to hang out with her people, snuggling all day if she could. She likes hanging out in the yard, but mostly suns herself and lounges around.

Ruby likes going for walks but is a very strong dog, so her adopter will need to be able bodied enough to walk her. Truthfully, she would be just as happy with a fenced yard and skipping walks anyway. She is easy going and laid back and is content just spending time with her humans. She peacefully coexists with the other dogs in her foster home as well.

Perhaps one of Ruby’s favorite things in the ENTIRE world is car rides! Well, car rides and people. Put them together and she’s a star! Ruby loves going for rides and greeting people as they drive by. It’s quite the comical routine in her foster home 🙂

Ruby is very well behaved and does not get into anything that she’s not supposed to. She’s perfectly housebroken too. Ruby can not be crated, as it makes her very anxious, but no worries, she’s such a good girl, she is fine to be left alone in the house.

Ruby is estimated to be about 4 years old, but really, that’s just a guess. If you are one of those people who “needs” a dog under two years old, then so be it, she can be two. If you are one of those people who “needs” a dog over 5 years old, so be it, she can be 5.5. What we do know is that on a scale of 1 to 10, Ruby is a 100, for sure.

If you are that amazing adopter who can give our #1 girl her dream home, please head over to our website www.midatlanticbullybuddies.org to submit our adoption application.
