This is my three year old red-nose, Ruby. I got Ruby as a rescue dog in November Of 2008. She had very minimal socialization, and was skittish and leery of everyone. Ruby has really made a 360 degree turn, she loves all people and greets them wherever we are, never barks, and is patient and sweet with kids. We are still working on her dog social skills, but she improves each time we encounter a dog, and is really doing well. She is really proving to be a wonderful companion, and all around great dog, beautiful as well!! We hope she does well.
