Hi friends! My name is Ruby and I’m a healthy, happy petite 2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier (I’m much smaller than I look in my photos!). People have described me as: “a total babe,” “a doll,” “absolutely precious,” “a total sweetheart,” “a smart girl,” and “a snuggle bug.” My foster mom found me pregnant and running in the streets, which is no place for a gorgeous super model like me! My previous owner was never found and the shelter was so overcrowded, so my foster mom kept me safe and I had 8 healthy puppies in May. I just got spayed in July and am now ready for a home of my own! I absolutely adore children and am very gentle with them (I currently live with two toddlers). I’m quite mellow indoors, and am happy to snuggle on the couch with you or relax in my crate with a bone or Kong (yes, I am crate trained!).
Once I get outside, I just want to go, go, go! I would make a great running or hiking buddy, but I’ve never really walked on leash before so I am still learning not to pull. I am potty-trained, but most dogs need a quick refresher when entering a new home. My humans are not sure how I will do with another dog right now. A male dog got in my yard and I basically ignored him after some sniffs, but I get so excited on the street when I see other dogs that I pull and I’m not sure how polite I’d be. My humans feel this is mostly because I haven’t had much structure in my life so far, and they believe I could live with another dog down the road with some training on impulse control, as I’m still a wild teenager. I’m microchipped, have had my first round of shots (including rabies) and will be having my second round in August. I promise I will be your most devoted companion if you take me home!
