“Meet Ruby. This sweet Pom was surrendered to an overcrowded shelter because her owners could no longer care for her.
She is a very loving little Pom. She weighs about 6 lbs and has beautiful reddish fur. To think that Ruby wasn't given a chance because of her age is heartbreaking! Ruby is 9 years young, but for a Pomeranian, that's just middle aged. Pomeranians are known to live 15-18 years! Ruby has a flea allergy which caused her to lose some of her hair. She has been treated and in no time, her fur will grow back just as beautiful as the rest of her is!
When Ruby was younger, she suffered a fractured leg. It healed unnaturally, but since it is healed, the vet feels that corrective surgery will cause her lots of pain and discomfort and is not necessary. It doesn't seem to bother her too much. She is not bothered when you touch that leg and gets around just fine. As a matter of fact, Ruby LOVES to go for walks! Her little legs will go and go until shes pooped, and then this little princess expects you to carry her back home! Its not usually a big deal, shes so tiny and petite that her foster mom doesn't mind! Oddly enough Ruby loves to take naps on the back of the couch. Watching her get into the couch is so funny! She gets a head start and then burns rubber all the way up to the cushion and then eventually all the way up to the top! She loves it up there. She is probably making up for being so little, by being so high up! She is such a funny little gal, but will make a fuss if you go to bed and leave her alone. She loves her people and wants to be with them, so an owner that is willing to share their pillow with Ruby at night would be perfect!
Ruby is not too fond of other dogs. She would do okay in a home with a more calm dog that will not pester her. She is fine in passing, but doesn't like to be bothered or pounced on by other dogs. She certainly doesn't want to play with other dogs. This little gal would much rather play with her humans!
Ruby is mostly housebroken and will use a puppy pad if she really has to go and can not get outside. She takes treats very gently and really needs a calm home where she can love someone and get their love in return. She would make a wonderful companion for a senior or for a calm couple. She would do best in a home without children, because the noise and constant activity would make her nervous. If you have the love and devotion to give to this sweet girl, you can be sure she will return that love tenfold!
