UPDATE - 8 MARCH 2018 (from Ruby's new foster family): Ruby has been a typical 9 month old beagle puppy! Very soft and cuddly, when awake, always full of energy. She's starting to get her feel of the place, and sometimes a little too much! She's already trashed an old blanket we had on the doggie couch upstairs (yesterday's project) and today started on a couch cover downstairs. 🙁 Fortunately it's an inexpensive cover. Our three resident dogs are already acting like "when she gonna leave?!!!" Daisy and Dixie Lou do like wrestling with her, but she's quick! She tends to get the best of then at times!
Ruby learned the doggie door the first day she was here, and the back yard stairs. Inside stairs were mastered last night. She knows she's supposed to do her business outside, but has had accidents inside. She's learned mealtime manners around the others at breakfast & dinner time. And she's striving to be an accomplished counter surfer. Just needs about 2-3 inches more of growth to reach table top! Maybe a bit more for kitchen counters!
Ruby would do great with a family that already has a young beagle and wants another as a companion.
INITIAL IMPRESSIONS: Ruby comes to BREW by way of Madison County Virginia where she was a stray. At the beginning of February she wandered up on a porch and scratched at the door to be let in. Since it was cold and getting colder, the couple took her in while they tried to find her people. After several weeks of checking vets and local shelters they asked for BREW to step in and find her a home. Ruby is estimated to be 9 months old and weighs 14 ½ pounds. She likes people and dogs and is “mostly” housetrained. Please stand by while we get her vet work done and find out a little more about her
