Meet Baby Ruth who is now available for adoption.

I am a sweet 1-2 year old Aussie/Border mix who was brought into a SC shelter by animal control but have come a long way in my foster home!

I am a low/medium energy, extremely shy/timid but slowly coming out of my shell thanks to my foster mom, brother and sisters. I love, love, love playing tug of war, running around the back yard or just lying under the trees watching squirrels with my foster brother and sisters. In the house, I play with the many toys (I can’t seem to pick just one), chew on antlers or just stretch out for a nap!

I am 42 pounds, up to date with my shots, microchipped and was recently spayed (ouch!). My foster mom says I have a very kind face, beautiful coat and I do have a long, fluffy tail! I am housebroken and prefer the floor to furniture. I bark when I play and if my foster mom is not paying attention, when I have to go potty. I like to sleep in my cage at night as it is soft and warm and safe.

Since I am extremely shy/timid, I would prefer a quiet home with no children or children over 12. I really want a brother or sister who will be my companion, play and help me adjust to my new home. A solid fenced back yard to run and play would be wonderful! An experienced adopter who is willing to go slow and continue to build my confidence.

My foster mom lives outside of Wilmington, NC. My adoption fee is $300. If you are an approved applicant and want to meet me, please contact the adoption committee. If you are interested, but have not applied, please visit our website for adoption procedures and application.
