Ruby was rescued by the Princess Buttercup Foundation back in March of 2011. Our President and Founder, Valerie used to work at her local animal shelter where she met Ruby. She was doing a walk through to make sure all the dogs had water. When she was just about to leave the kennel area, she felt the urge to turn her head towards Ruby's cage and that's when she saw Ruby laying on her blanket with a few small blood strains on it. At first, Valerie thought Ruby was in heat, but then realized she actually had a prolapsed rectum. A week later, Valerie found out Ruby was going to be euthanized because she was "highly dog aggressive" and for having a medical condition. So, she started to e-mail special needs rescue organizations, but nobody could take Ruby. Valerie took Ruby outside and evaluated her with another dog and learned that Ruby was anything but highly dog aggressive. The day Ruby was sentenced to be killed, literally minutes before she was going to be killed, Valerie pulled her off death row. And talk about pure luck, or maybe a miracle, rather, but Ruby was then adopted two weeks later by adopters who were very experienced with dogs with medical needs. And go figure... Ruby has lived with two foster dogs and goes to the dog park frequently. Go Ruby!
