Arrival Story: I got Ruby from another owner who was pregnant with her second baby.
Bio: Ruby has had so many homes. Apparently in one of her homes, she was starved so that is why she has a big issue with food. It is safe to say that she can be a bit insecure sometimes but she is definetly a lovely, kind, caring dog who can be a leader aswell as a follower. She likes to go her own way sometimes and doesn't always respond when you tell her to do some things but she follows her best friend who lives with us, Jessie. Jessie is a good example and was our first dog before Ruby came along. Of course, we've had many dogs before Jessie and Ruby came to us.
So my mummy's sister has just bought a purebred female whippet who is so so so so so so cute! She already has another wuvely dog called Honey who is my bestdog (aswell as Jessie, of course. But she is my fursister so would have to be my bestdog too). She has papers from the IKC (Irish KC) but she can't be shown because of her broken tail (it's an old wound so can't be fixed) but my auntie really got her 'cos she's a cute little hun bun, really.
I guess Kitai and her gang have done a good job on the old abreves!
