Back on the list for the second night in a row !!
Ruthie is a black beauty that seems to be completely out of her element. Although she seems fearful in her cage, once outside she is focused on pulling with all her might to get right back in it (the lesser of scary things!). Whether Ruthie has an aversion to the outdoors or is just a wreck without her people, I suspect once she’s settled into a home she will be someone’s very best friend!! After hanging out with her some indoors I’m sure that she had someone that cared about her: she knows “sit,” “paw” and “down” (and is super treat motivated when she’s not too worried about other things to take them!) , seems very familiar with toys (she jumps up and down like she’s on a trampoline when she’s waiting for them), and likely has housetraining. She is still a little unsure, but seems to very much want to be cuddly: she offers lots of tail wags, gave me kisses on my hand, and even got two seconds into a belly rub before a noise in the hallway took her attention. It’s impossible to say who the real Ruthie is, but she seems like a very sweet, playful, sensitive girl, very worthy of finding her own safe place.
