It’s a good thing Ruby didn’t take her love to town when she recently found herself homeless. Abandoned by one family, the last thing Ruby needed was more mouths to feed. Ruby and her canine BFF Roxy lost both their family and their home when their owners were evicted. On January 9th, after being left on the empty property for several days, the dogs were taken to the Montgomery County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina. Ruby and Roxy had always been outside dogs, but that did not protect them from the hardship of being kenneled in outside area for impounded dogs. Even worse, the bonded pair could not be kenneled together. Within a day both dogs were shutting down from exposure, stress and depression.
