Ruby needs a home ASAP.

So, a neighbor of ours has recently had two of his roommates move out on him, one of them leaving behind her dog, Ruby. He's in the process of moving out himself (he's not the one on the lease), and moving to an apartment where he can't bring Ruby. Rather than leave her abandoned in a house without food or power, and not wanting to take her to animal control where she's likely to be put down, he's asked us and some of our other neighbors for some help finding a home for Ruby.







Ruby is a sweet, 2-year old mutt that is intelligent and housetrained. She's protective of her people, but not aggressive. She's been somewhat trained (she can sit and shake) and is healthy, though she'll need a flea treatment ASAP.

She may have issues with cats (hence why neophobic and I can't take her in), but she just needs someone to take her for a few days at least while we try to find her longer-term arrangements.

Know anyone who can help?

UPDATE: Ruby's found a place either with the Atlanta Humane Society or Barking Hound Village. Now she just needs a permanent home. She's really a sweet dog.

Current Mood: hopeful hopeful

I can't believe anyone would just leave their dog like that. I don't understand it at all.

Honestly, any dog whose owner would leave them like that is going to better off with a new family, assuming one can be found.

How can anyone with a heart leave their dog behind like that? I'm thoroughly disgusted.

Yeah...it's pretty ridiculous what people will give up a pet for. The worst I heard was that someone wanted to get rid of their dog because it didn't match their new furniture...WTF?!?
