LocationShelburne, VT

Ruth is 8 years old; we need to verify with a Vet (approx. DOB tba), female, a petite 35 lbs., vetted, is or will be spayed, and micro-chipped. This poor girl was abandoned at the shelter by her previous owner/s; she is so confused and scared. Ruth seems to have been through alot

In her new home she will do best with another dog to help her gain trust through observation and a home willing to be patient and empathetic to her needs and time frame to get comfortable. She is very sweet and very beautiful. Her ideal home would not have little kids with unpredictable energies that would scare her more. Our guess is given her fear she would probably care less about cats!

This is a great video about a scared dog and building trust:

The reward for patience and empathy is indescribable and so amazing; especially for the pups! Stay tuned for more information as Ruthie is a new rescue!
