My name is Ruby and I'm proud to be the 2018 Cover Dog for the Humane Society of Broward County's Walk for the Animals. I invite any and all DOG LOVERS to join me in raising money for the Walk to help other dogs like me, even if you can't be there on Walk Day. You can join my Pack and fundraise, or you can make a donation to my Pack. It all goes directly to the shelter.
Let me tell you why I'm so dedicated to this cause. I'm one of the lucky ones...
A little over a year ago, I was surrendered to the Humane Society of Broward County by my first family. They couldn't keep me anymore. Apparently, I was a lot to handle. When I got to the shelter I was scared. I might have growled at the workers, but I did not know at the time that they were friends.
The best day of my life was when I was walking outside with one of the staff members and a really nice lady came walking over. The staff person told her I had been there for three days and they still couldn't get near me without lots of barking and growling. There was something different about this lady. I really liked her. In fact, when she sat on the curb to see me, I jumped right in her lap. She adopted me but I can't say it's been easy for my new family.
You see, I have a barking problem. I bark at people a lot (especially people I don't know), but my new family took the time to teach me ways to deal with it. It took a while, but I'm finally learning to go to my room when we have visitors, and stay there until I feel comfortable. Then I can come out and be part of the party.
I now have so many human and four-legged friends that treat me like a queen! This wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for the Humane Society of Broward County giving me a chance and finding me a TRUE forever home!
Won't you help by either joining my Pack and fundraising or making a donation.The more money we raise, the more animals the shelter can help. Lucky dogs like me!
