HAPPY TAIL! We received this wonderful update from Coriander's new family. We are so thankful for people who choose to adopt and not shop!

Coriander (now, Ruby) is settling in wonderfully! We are working on potty training and learning how to use the dog door. Her big sister, Daisy (11 month old Pyrenees mix also adopted), tries to show her, but Ruby is a little reluctant. Ruby knows how to sit and knows she gets a treat when she goes potty outside. She's getting better about letting me know when she wants to go outside. It’s a process, but she’s learning! She’s already grown some, and is getting taller. She is starting to fill in as well.

She’s perfectly cuddly and friendly. She loves sleeping on my lap or next to me when I work from home. She LOVES playing with Daisy, and Daisy LOVES playing with her. They love playing keep away with different toys, especially the antler. Thank you all rescuing her (and thank you to her wonderful foster family as well!)! I could not be happier to have this new addition to my family."

We have Kaia, formerly Cinnamon, from the same litter 💕 so glad we adopted our sweet girl

Love these Happy Tails! I am getting a dog from Tulsa SPCA next week after her vetting is complete. I can't wait to get to know her. Then I can post her Happy Tail too!

So very happy to see Ruby (former foster Cory) doing so well! We loved having her be part of our family for a little while. But ❤️ that she has such a caring forever home!
