Ruby came to us as a stray on 7/8/15. Upon intake it was reported that Ruby had friendly body language and allowed all handling. She was interested in interacting with the assessor when entering the behavior room. She allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items while maintaining soft body language. Ruby displayed no interest in any of the resource items on this portion of the assessment. The behavior department believes that Ruby can go to a home with an average amount of dog experience.
