Adoptable Dog of the Week - Ruthie

by Angela Vuckovic

Graceful, loyal, and smart, this lovely gal is looking for someone to shower her with love! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Ruthie, a 2 years old Labrador Retriever and Terrier mix from Pennington, New Jersey. She is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, microchipped, housetrained, crate trained, and she knows basic commands. Ruthie does well with other dogs and cats but would prefer a home where she’s the only pet. 

Ruthie’s Tale

A well-mannered, easy-going dog that’s already trained – Ruthie will be a dream companion if you want a loyal, calm dog by your side. Ruthie is crate trained, housetrained, walks well on a leash, and knows basic commands such as sit, stay, down, etc. She’ll even stay when you leave the room and wait for the release command! Have we already mentioned that Ruthie is super-duper smart? However, like all intelligent dogs, she needs an owner that runs a tight ship, otherwise, she’d try to become the boss of you and quickly turn to mischief.

She’ll lie down quietly by your feet and follow your every step – she loves to be included in your daily activities and will shower you with love. All you have to do is reply in kind! Ruthie currently lives in a foster home with two other dogs and two cats and gets along splendidly with all of them. The girl’s a charmer! However, she’d do best in a home where she’s the only pet, as it’s her time to be the center of someone’s world and attention. Ideally, her humans would be only adults, as she’s a bit big for a family with young kids (45 pounds) and prefers the energy of adults.

If you’re interested in this lovely girl, contact ARF of Mercer to learn more about her and the adoption process.
