When we started our One Mile Farm in 2011, we knew we wanted some security on our pastures. The brewery is a mile away and as much as we love being out there with the animals and fresh air, there’s still beer to be made! So we did some research, drove to Portland, and picked up our three Anatolian Shepherd puppies to be our new farm dogs. Stone, IPA, and Ruby have been staples of our farm from the beginning. Unfortunately, life on the farm hasn’t been ideal for Ruby, and we’re sad to say it’s time to find her a new home. We’re hoping you can help us!
Ruby is a sweet, shy 90 pound girl. She gets lonely on the farm and tends to wander off when there isn’t anyone around. She usually meanders towards houses with kids, and loves to be around people. When she wanders away she always comes back, but we worry about her on the road. She’s accustomed to sleeping outside and gets shy if you ask her to come in. In fact, she hasn’t spent much time indoors at all, so we can’t say what her inside behavior would be. Outdoors, this three year-old is fun and loving.
Ruby would do well in a home with room to roam. She would also benefit from people around her often, as she loves attention. Chickens and small animals can agitate her, and she would need to meet any other dogs in the family. She’s happiest when she can play outside with people, and is eager to please. If you came to our Pumpkins and Pints event this year, you may have seen her lounging in the sun by the trailer watching everyone have a good time.
This lady has led a simple life – she likes sleeping in dirt and hasn’t spent much time on a leash. She is all up to date on shots and healthy as can be. By nature, Anatolian Shepherds are powerful, intelligent and loyal, and Ruby is no exception.
We want to find Ruby a happy home where she can feel comfortable and at-ease, and we’re hoping you can help us. Tell your friends, and your friends’ friends! If you’re interested in meeting Ruby or learning more, email Alex at email@example.com.
