Ruby is a 19-month old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is being fostered in RCT, South Wales. She is looking for a family who will love her and give her the training and guidance she needs to become a fun and loyal companion. Staffordshire Bull Terrier experience isn’t essential but would come in handy. Ruby is very playful to the point where she can antagonise other dogs when they don’t want to play with her. She will be best living with another dog of a similar size that is calmer than she is!
Ruby hasn’t been cat tested so we don’t know what she is like with them or small furries. With regard to people, she is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, what can we say! She loves to be loved. Ruby is a soppy date who is keen to please and, despite her size, thinks she is a lapdog. She adores children but is too much for small ones and may knock them over. We recommend any children in the home are over six years old.
Ruby isn’t keen on being crated. She has been left for up to four hours and overnight in the kitchen on her own and has been fine. Initially she did bang at the door and whine but soon settled. Potential adopters will have to be aware that when she goes to her new home she may take a couple of days to settle. Ruby does pull on the lead when out but after the excitement she will walk nicely. On an extender lead her recall has been good. She does want to play with every dog that she meets and this isn’t always taken well by the other dog. Adopters will need to be prepared for this puppy-like enthusiasm! With car travel short car journeys have been fine but Ruby has been sick on longer trips.
Ruby is looking for a fun-loving, active family who will involve her in their day-to-day activities. She is a loyal girl who is still very puppy-like in her behaviour. Further training on how to greet dogs nicely would be beneficial for her as she will try to engage them in rough play right from the start! She adores playing ball and cuddles on the sofa getting her neck scratched. When Ruby first came into rescue she had a bad ear infection and although treated it has led to some thickening of her outer ears. She is up to date with her vaccinations, flea and worming treatment, is spayed and microchipped. Potential adopters will be expected to meet Ruby in her foster home in RCT, South Wales.
