We call her Ruby to the Rescue. We rescued her but she rescued us, too. Ruby was found in an open field in Stockton, CA. The shelter was going to put her down because she was people shy but Tina from TnT Rescue took her in and we were able to adopt her. We adopted Ruby on November 12, 2017. She was approximately 7 months at that time. Ruby has come a long way.
When we first brought her home she would cower in corners, hide when she saw a leash/harness and now she almost puts it on herself! Ruby bonded with me fairly quickly but it was tougher between her and my husband Bobby. He was so patient. It went from me having to put her into his lap slowly to her jumping into his lap and licking his face now.
We take her everywhere with us. That went from her pulling away from other people walking toward us to her walking confidently with tale up high walking by them now.
It's been quite a process and these are just a few examples of her progress. We are still working on it, but it is so worth it. We adore Ruby!
