Beautiful Ruby Tuesday is a super cute, super cuddly, charismatic little lass and she desperately wants a new family that she can call her own.

ruby 1 tnWhen Ruby is around people she knows and loves she is a happy bouncy loving dog, but sadly strangers and new places can be a lot for her to cope with. Ruby needs a patient family that will help show her how awesome the world is, and that strangers are just friends she hasn't met yet!

Ruby is very much a lap dog, she adores to be by your side or snuggled up on your lap, but also loves her daily exercise and zoomy time in the yard!

Ruby has lived with other dogs and cats but really only cares about human companionship, she's a great little 'shadow dog' meaning she will follow you around wherever you go. Ruby has progressed so much since she has come into care and her confidence is steadily growing, but she does need more work so she can be the shining star we know she was born to be.

Ruby would prefer a household where she isn't left alone for long working hours and has inside/outside access. An active retired couple that is able to keep up with her exercise needs would be great, or a young family with older respectful kids who want a new best friend and a new fully fledged family member.

Ruby needs patience and commitment and what you give to her you will receive tenfold back.

Dog Adoption Policy

Please note: completing an adoption form does not guarantee that an adoption will take place.

Melbourne Animal Rescue Inc. reserves the right to choose the most suitable applicant and reject those deemed less suitable.

Occasionally, there can be multiple applications for the one animal and there is NO 'First In - Best Dressed' - the multiple applications are vetted for the most suitable.

We do our utmost to contact all applicants, including those who are unsuccessful, to inform them of the result but as we are staffed by volunteers, most of whom work full time, occasionally responses are overlooked and we apologise in advance if this occurs.

MAR does not adopt to those who are not permanent residents of Australia.
