Hi, there! My name is Mama Ruby Red, but you can call me Ruby. I’m a very special, loving girl with just the right dash of playful spunk. I’m a 3-year-old, 36-pound spayed Dachshund mix.

My rescue story is quite the rollercoaster. When I was rescued from Mexicali, I was pregnant with my little gemstones. I gave birth to them, safe and sound here in the states. Just as my puppies were growing up, another foster momma passed away right after giving birth. That’s where I stepped in as a surrogate and took those little pups in as my own. I’ve spent a lot of my time being a momma, but now I’m ready for a home where I can be the baby for a change!

I’m a super sweet gal who gets along with everyone I meet. Since I recently had puppies, I can be a little cautious around new dogs. With the right introduction, I love playing with pooches! I get quite excited when I see cats on walks, so I probably wouldn’t be the best buds with them. I haven’t spent much time around kids, but I think that we’d get along just fine! The more hands to give me pets and snuggles the better.

I’m not too high-energy although my youthful side comes out when I get the zoomies in the house! I also love playing with my foster mom and furry foster siblings. I enjoy my walks and getting out to explore. I’m new to car rides and not totally comfortable, but I’m sure with more practice I’ll be your adventure buddy in no time.

I’m a very good girl who never has accidents in the house. You don’t need to worry about putting me in the crate! I can be a curious gal who has tried to get into packages (what if Santa came early?) but I never destroy things. I am leash trained but pull a little bit. I’m very emotionally intelligent and I’m in tune with my people’s moods. I communicate with you by nudging with my nose which usually means, “more love and pets, please!”

Since I’m such a sweetheart, I’d do well with a variety of furever families. I think I’d love another medium-energy fur sibling that I can play with! Yard or no yard, I’m fine as long as I get my walks. I’m the perfect size, age, and energy-level. You might say I’m a diamond… ahem, I mean Ruby in the ruff! Take a chance on this sweet mama and make the baby of your family today! My adoption fee is $350 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
