Ruby is full of life! She is a typical active little terrier who is looking for further guidance with training. Ruby is easily overwhelmed by other dogs and noises in her environment when she is out for walks and becomes very vocal. She needs taught alternative calming behaviour using reward based training. Ruby is therefore looking for a rural environment, with someone who can commit to her training consistently and understands it will be ongoing. Ruby is friendly towards people but can be reactive to other animals. Ruby will need a refresher course in house training. She is an active little lady who needs help learning how to relax.



Ruby's original owner brought her in for rehoming as they were moving accommodation and only allowed one dog. As the other dog was older, they rehomed Ruby. Ruby was then rehomed but her adopter moved down south and reported that she was toileting in the house and her reactions towards other dogs proved too much. 

Re-homing Criteria

Ruby needs consistency and lots of patience. We advise that she goes to a quiet home with a committed owner who can provide the ongoing guidance she requires. She will need help with housetraining and on lead walks. Ruby would suit a home without children and other animals at this stage.
