Ruby is an 11-year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and she is fostered in Berkshire. Ruby is full of life and interested in what everyone is getting up to, and likes to let you know if she approves or not, and if you are getting that dinner ready quickly enough for her!
People – Ruby is very happy around people and happy to have fuss and attention. She is a bit uncomfortable with her feet and legs being touched, but she has sore legs so to be expected.
Ruby can be a little reserved when she first meets new people, but once she has the measure of you she will ask for tummy tickles, give little kisses and loves to snuggle on the sofa if you help her up and down.
Dogs – Ruby gets on well with all the dogs in her foster home so would benefit from living with another similar sized dog.
Cats – Not cat tested.
In the home – Ruby is not keen on being left at home and will bark. She is housetrained. She loves a snuggle on the sofa if you help her up and down.
Out and about – She will pull slightly and bark a lot initially when leaving the house and gets very excited. She loves to be out and about but will bark at the sight of other dogs.
Type of home – Ruby is looking for someone around a lot of the day and loves to be involved in what you’re doing, love human company and physical contact. She also thrives on routine and knowing what’s coming next.
Please note: Ruby has a heart murmur but has no clinical signs of heart failure. Ruby’s legs are quite bad generally. Her new family may need to make adaptions in the home so that Ruby can be involved as much as possible without straining her joints. Ruby also has some LHS facial paralysis and a tilt, but she manages well. There will be no adoption donation required for Ruby due to her ongoing health issues. FOAW will continue to pay for her non-routine vet bills and medication.
Please remember, if you have a dog and it is not neutered, it is against our policies to re-home a dog with you.
Ruby is NOT spayed at the moment due to her health issues. She is fully vaccinated, microchipped, flea and worm treated. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in Berkshire.
