Dog of the Day: Ruby from San Diego Humane Society!


Why I’d make a great companion: I’m an active and smart pup looking for a special family to call my own! Friends that know me say I will be a loyal companion for life.

My favorite activities include: I love playing and getting my exercise. While I can be a bit shy at first, I warm up quickly. I focus and learn well. I will flourish in an environment that fulfills my need for intellectual stimulation. I’d be very happy to accompany my new pet-parents on their athletic pursuits and outdoor adventures.

Type of home I’m looking for: I will do well in a variety of homes, but an adults-only home is recommended.

Other things you should know about me: To help my new pet parents and I get started off on the right paw, the Humane Societys Puppy Fun Class is included in my $244 adoption fee. My adoption fee also includes my spay, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, certificate for a free veterinary exam, and more!

San Diego Humane Society and SPCA pets are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and microchipped (some small animals, reptiles and birds excepted) prior to adoption. Please note that in order to make the best match possible, potential adopters must come to the Society in person to meet with an adoption counselor and complete the adoption process. All members of the household (including other pets, if possible) should be present to ensure the chosen pet is compatible with everyone. We do not place holds or do adoptions over the phone and we do not ship pets. For more information on the adoption process or to fill out an adoption questionnaire visit
