Ruthie is a one year old Am Staff mix with a huuuuge block head and an even bigger heart. I got a cryptic Facebook message about a new resident at the shelter whom I was sure to love and the bonus was that she loves to kiss. Powerless to resist, I high-tailed it to the shelter and saw Ruthie. She was still “red” meaning I couldn’t touch her yet, but as I sat drooling on the window and obeying the rules, the staff took pitty on me and said she had in fact been processed and I could take her out.
Oh, the kisses she gave and the joie de vivre she exhibited! This gal loves life and will take you on an adventure with her. She covered me (and my new coat) with
slobber evidence of her happiness and just all out seemed to be happy. She pulled a bit on the leash but stopped and checked in at the appropriate times, so with a little bit of work she will be a great leash walker in not time at all. With luck, she will be adopted before I really get to know her, but otherwise, stay tuned for more updates.
