About Ruby Redbird

Ruby is a sweet, calm and happy dog. She lives to chase things that move (her Cattle Dog personality) and she loves to be chased. She gets along well with all dogs and humans. She is still learning her manners with dogs and people, but a firm "no" gets her attention. She does have some separation anxiety, but we are working on that with her. Right now we have her crate trained pretty well, we've been able to leave the house with her in her crate for long periods of time without accidents. She does whine a little bit at first but calms down if you leave her some treats in her crate with her. Luckily, she does really well if you take her everywhere you go. Put her on her leash and she's good to go to the park with you, onto a patio for dinner, or even out to bars. She loves being in the car too. She is shy and suspicious with strangers, but if you take her outside to have more space or give the stranger a treat to give her - it helps her warm up to others. She doesn't have an aggressive bone in her body. She does like to play hard which I know worries some, but if you tell her to back off she normally will. If she doesn't stop I give her a small time out in a room by herself. She does enjoy destroying things but sticks to her toys that are destroy-approved. She has destroyed my laptop charger cord because I wasn't paying attention. Tell her "NO" if she's trying to get something she shouldn't and keep her in her crate if you are gone. She sleeps in her crate every night. I do invite her up on the couch occasionally too. She knows if you say "OFF" she wasn't supposed to be up there with you. Overall, she's really easy to take care of and is easy going. She's a great dog to hang out with.
