Ruby is a 3 year old, 54 lb Basset Hound. She battled a nasty tick-borne disease when we first got her, but her foster mom patiently nursed her back to health. She is now a healthy and happy girl! She is fairly laid back, although she does love and look forward to her evening strolls around the neighborhood. She loves to sun herself in the backyard on fair weather days and watch the squirrels. Ruby gets along fine with the other dogs in her foster home...most of the time, but she can get very annoyed if they are too rough with her. She is laid back, and needs a laid back dog companion or to be an only dog. Ruby would love to be an only dog so she wouldn't have to share tummy rubs! Ruby loves tummy rubs! Ruby does best in a quiet, low activity environment, so she should not go to a home with kids. Ruby will not do well going to dog parks or anyplace where there are lots of dogs. She is perfectly content to go on walks, then chill at home and take long naps. Ruby has run of the house at her current foster home because she is not destructive in the least. She's too busy taking a long nap to get into trouble. Did we mention she loves her naptime? Ruby cannot go to a home with cats. If you are partial to red-heads with long flowing ears and an easy going temperament, Ruby might just be the girl for you.
