Many families own pets simply because they love their company. However, some also have specific needs. Because they are not the perfect fit, some dogs end up in shelters. One example is Ruby, the pit bull.
Ruby’s former owner decided to surrender her to Orange County Animal Services. According to reports, Ruby’s family wanted to have a guard dog, which was why they got her. However, it turned out that the pup was “too nice.” She would not bark. So, Ruby’s owner brought her to the said shelter in Orlando, Florida.
The brindle and white pittie was over one-year-old and weighed 73 pounds. Aside from being quiet and affectionate, Ruby also knows general obedience commands. Ruby is housebroken and is highly sociable too. Although her former owner did not seem to appreciate her, Ruby is definitely a perfect catch.
While visiting the shelter, Britta Waterfilter saw Ruby, who she said was wagging her tail the whole time. She noted that Ruby was so friendly. Upon checking the dog’s information, it shocked Britta to see that Ruby’s owner surrendered her to the rescue center because she was “too nice.”
In the hopes of finding her a loving family, Britta decided to share Ruby’s story on Facebook. Thankfully, it quickly got people’s attention. The post was shared over 2,000 times. Just like Britta, the people who saw the post could not believe why Ruby’s owner surrendered her to the shelter.
Britta posted an update on Ruby, saying that, on that day, the pup was spayed too. Knowing that Ruby’s story has generated so much interest thrilled Britta. Not surprisingly, after her story was shared on the internet, Ruby quickly found a new family. This time, Ruby’s owners know that what they are getting is a nice dog. Meanwhile, Britta encouraged those who want dogs or cats to consider adopting from an animal shelter.
