Hello everyone my new name is Ruby and until Sunday I was known as #263. That’s right I have never had a name just a number to identify me. When I was loaded up on Saturday to go to the Missouri Puppy Mill Auction all I could do was hang my head. 8 years of having puppies have taken a toll on my body. I walk with a limp and I can’t walk fast at all. Matter of fact, the grass feels strange to me and I basically just stand in place and my head hangs low. My stomach is freshly shaven and the stitches are still in. I am the face of a bulldog in a puppy mill. When I could not have any more babies I had no value. And the worst part is at age 8 why was I still having babies? But little did I know Saturday was going to be the best day of my life. Someone had highlighted me in the catalog and they had vowed not to leave without me and that my days in a mill was over. And that is just how it happened. When I was placed on the auction table there was a rescue group that saved me. Lone Star Dog Ranch made sure I was safe. I did matter, and I would have a name. Ruby is my name because I am a precious gem. Sunday I had a bath with warm water and I was given a new collar and leash. I have a new bed that fits just me. It’s going to take me a while to learn I can walk around freely. I have never been anywhere in my life. But today starts a whole new chapter and follow my journey as I discover the world outside of a Missouri puppy mill.
