Say hello to Ruby, a loveable, outgoing 7-year-old Jack Russell Terrier mix. Ruby is quite the charmer with her adorable personality and sweet demeanor. Soon after arriving at PAWS Chicago, she started having trouble walking and was suspected to have Acute Canine Idiopathic Polyradiculoneuritis, which is a creeping paralysis due to inflammation of the nerves. Thankfully, Ruby is a fighter and responded well to her treatment and physical therapy. She can walk like a champ again!
Ruby has been spending time in a wonderful foster home who says she is a very easygoing girl whose ideal day would be spent sitting in your lap, playing with plush squeaky toys, snacking, and napping in a cozy dog bed. She enjoys soaking up all the attention and would love to be the only pet in an adults-only home. Her foster mom says Ruby “has the most unique personality. She constantly tries to put her head under your hand, and overall just wants to be with you. If you are looking for a dog that will happily be your companion and snuggle all the time, pick Ruby! She gets so excited when you come home and is the happiest little pup on earth. She is also extremely affectionate and loves to give kisses and have her belly rubbed.”
Ruby is housebroken and walks well on a leash. Despite all she has been through, Ruby has the most positive outlook on life and is happy as can be. She would love to find a human best friend who will love her unconditionally and give her the wonderful life she deserves. PAWS is committed to finding the perfect home for every animal in their adoption program. If you adopt Ruby, not only will you get a lifetime of love, you will also receive a year of free Merrick Pet Care dog food and a free training consultation with a PAWS Chicago trainer.
