Peru Ruby is a fun and quirky dog who was found running at large in the city of Plattsburgh. She came to us with some very long nails, dry skin and a large mass on her chest. We removed the mass when she was being spayed and now she is healing slowly. Ruby likes to go for walks and she loves to play with her stuffed soccer ball. At first Ruby was afraid when she had some free time in the dog room, but she quickly warmed up to staff and now enjoys hanging out with her people. Ruby will be a great companion to any one who loves dogs. She is attentive, focused and very smart. Come in and meet this funny and loving dog.
UPDATE Ruby was returned to us because she was urinating in the home. After Ruby was picked up she was brought into the vet’s office where she had a complete blood workup and a urinalysis. Every thing came back normal and we feel that she is just an anxious dog who will do well in a home where she will be with her people most of the time. Although Ruby has never shown dog aggression before she is now exhibiting some resource guarding of her food and space. Every day that seems to lessen, but she would do best in a home with either no dogs or a dog who doesn’t have to be dominant. Come meet this sweet dog who is need of a patient home where she can gain the confidence she needs. Ruby is an excellent companion dog!
Gaia is a gorgeous young cat who was found hiding under the back porch of the shelter with her two young kittens. She was an excellent mother who cared for her kittens well while they were in foster care with an Elmore Supporter. She is a loving cat who loves to be petted and to receive attention. She is thriving in the cat colony at Elmore SPCA and enjoys the company of the other cats. She seems to tolerate dogs well enough. Gaia would do well in most homes and she is ready to meet her new family. Come in and meet this engaging and loving cat!
