Hi, I’m Ruby! I’m a gorgeous Pitbull Terrier mix who’s looking for a home to call my own. I am a super sweet dog with an affectionate personality who absolutely loves my humans! Cuddling is my favorite past time, along with playing and going for walks. My ideal home would be one where folks are home often, as I have separation anxiety, and am capable of breaking out of crates and being destructive if alone for too long. The family who decides to takes me home should know that I’m a very smart girl, who loves to learn and although I mean well, I can be a bit protective of my people and environment! I’m an all-around amazing dog, and I hope you’ll take a chance on me!
