Ruby is a well loved dog. Sadly, due to not getting on with the residdent dog, she is looking for a new home.


Hi, I’m Ruby!

I’m a timid, shy girl looking for a patient home.

I would prefer an adult only home who can understand my needs as I may take some time to get to know you (I have been known to hide behind the sofa when people visit!)

I don’t have any seperation anxiety and I can be left for short, reasonable periods of time.

I would love to sleep in your bed if I am allowed! I am a snuggle bug and love cuddling up in blankets.

I am OK travelling in the car, but can be a bit anxious. When I am out on walks, I can get nervous if loud vehicles are passing, I am currently walked in quieter areas to avoid this when possible. I really enjoy my walks though and currently walk up to an hour a day. I also enjoy playing with toys and I love food that takes me some time to chew on such as antlers and rabbit ears!

I am very treat motivated! I know the commands sit, paw and touch!

Please reach out if you can offer me a home!


I can be reactive if other dogs are within a few metres of my space. Otherwise, I am more than managable out on walks. I wouldn’t be a dog that you can take to busy areas such as pubs and cafes and would prefer quiet, less dog populated walks. I can’t be let off lead unless I am in a private and secure area.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • An adult only home
  • A patient and understanding home

Do you have a home for Ruby 2?

We are looking for foster families and adoptive families.

We do ask foster homes to be within an hour’s drive of Bournemouth foster homes will be expected to drive back to our vets in Bournemouth and to meet with prospective new homes.

We rehome to adoptive families within a 2 hour driving radius of Bournemouth. (maximum 2hrs,20 minutes for the perfect applicant willing to travel) Please DO NOT ask if we make exceptions further and look at other rescues covering your area if we do not.

A home check and a vet check is required, with a £250 adoption fee (or £400 for puppy adoption under 1 year), which contributes partially to kennel fees, vaccinations, microchipping, spay/neutering, flea/worming treatment and other veterinary costs. This adoption fee will contribute to the care of all our dogs.

We have a thorough rehoming programme to prepare you and your dog for each other. We also offer help and support for you both in the future. Learn about responsible ownership or contact us if you have any questions.

If you are considering fostering or permanently rehoming a dog, then please print off and complete one of the forms below:
