Ruby is a 9-year-old Shiba Inu. She was picked up as a stray and taken to the county kill shelter where she was incorrectly diagnosed as being arthritic. Once in our care she received a thorough evaluation which revealed she suffered from a broken pelvis most likely caused by a blunt instrument like a 2×4. Ruby was almost feral and understandably terrified of humans.
After a year of her being in our care we were finally able to touch her. Ruby finds happiness and comfort in being surrounded by other dogs and the occasional interaction with humans. She now suffers from elevated eye pressure and requires daily eye drops.
