Ruby Bella will get along great with your other dogs. She has mastered her house-training etiquette. She has been vaccinated and spayed.
Here's what Ruby Bella's friends at Last Hope K9 Rescue think of her:
Ruby Bella is kind of a goofball. She's very affectionate and likes to play, but can also settle down easily to cuddle on the couch. Favorite things: kisses, flying leaps off the porch, two hand scratchies, blankets, being with you and tearing every single bit of fluff out of a dog toy.

Nell Carter, Labrador retriever mix
Nell Carter is an adorable female Labrador retriever mix being kept at Last Hope K9 Rescue.
She's vaccinated and spayed.
Notes from Nell Carter's caretakers:
Nell is a sweet, gentle girl that loves her people. Nell has never met a stranger! She is very calm and laid back and is happiest when she can be asleep at your feet. She is dog, cat, and kid friendly, but is still learning how to play with other dogs. She would be a great companion to an older dog that isn't interested in play.
