Ruby Dee (07-086) is a very petite girl who was found as a stray in
rural Virginia in 2007. This 12 year-old exceptionally sweet Golden was
gravely ill with pneumonia, a collapsed lung, and horrible dental
problems. After 2 months of treatment, including 9 teeth extractions, a
happy healthy dog emerged to spend the rest of her days with 3 other
dogs and 4 cats. Ruby Dee is loved by all who meet her.
