Canyon County Pet of the Week: Ruby


Ruby, 8, is a beautiful plott hound mix and is a medium size who weighs 65 pounds. She has an easy-to-care-for short black and deep brown coat.

Ruby is active and energetic and very affectionate. A family that fits with those characteristics would be good for Ruby. She is treat-motivated, so should be easy to train. Ruby gets along with other dogs but will require a cat-free home. To manage her weight she will need regular exercise and a good diet. When outside she is all nose to the ground as most hounds are, so Ruby will need a securely fenced yard where she can run and play safely.

Ruby is vaccinated, microchipped and spayed. With all animals, we advise a supervised meet and greet at the shelter to make sure that current pets and potential adopted pets are compatible.

Ruby is in the dog adoptions wing at West Valley Humane Society, 5801 Graye Lane in Caldwell. Learn about him and other adoptable pets at
