BABE RUTH- Vet Pet Pick!



  • ADULT FEMALE – DOB March 2011
  • ARRIVED:  March 2014
  • HISTORY:  Rescued from a high kill shelter when her time was up. Best in a home without cats and other dogs.

She’s a BABE all right! While she may not catch the balls and run the bases, she’s ready to make a home run hit with you! All dressed up in her two-tone jacket and happy to show off her long, lean legs, Babe Ruth’s a real head-turning lady! But her beauty is not just skin deep.  She has the perfect skill set for a busy, active family, whether walking down Main Street or rambling through the park. Babe Ruth is a very social, affectionate lady.  Just prior to our taking her in, her very temporary foster family reported that she was a HUGE couch potato only wanting to be near people!  Don’t be fooled by her love of the sofa though, as she loves to get fresh air and exercise to keep her sleek, trim look!  Very, very smart, she knows sit, shake and lay down on command.  A friendly gal, she’s pretty unflappable and ready to head on home to your private ball park!

A Word from Babe Ruth

“Ask just about anyone who has met me and they’ll tell you that I am one of the sweetest dogs around. When I first met one of my walkers, I knew at once she would be friendly! I immediately approached her with a toy in my mouth and placed it at her feet, and wagged my tail expectantly. I love attention and I am quick to roll onto my back for belly rubs. Although I am getting older, I still have plenty of energy and love to go around chasing tennis balls. Going on car rides is one of my favorite things! Not to be conceited, I am easily one of our smartest dogs and am perceptive and well-behaved around people. During feedings, I always wait patiently on my platform and never jump, despite being excited to eat as evidenced by my wagging tail.”

What Babe Needs in Her Home – Babe Ruth is a great dog, very friendly and loving, but she will do best in a home without cats and other dogs. Be careful that she does not see another dog or cat up close, because she can pull very hard when interested, and she may not use her best manners. A fenced yard would be great! She is happy in a crate or without, and understands the dynamics of living indoors, including housetraining. She is good around kids, and will be a great part of your family!

Fall 2022 Update: Babe Ruth is such a lovely, appealing lady so it should come as no surprise that she’s often selected to head out for summer car rides with one of our volunteers, Diane. I mean, who would not love to have this arm candy riding shotgun in your car as the 2 of you enjoy a leisurely drive through the countryside? Babe continues to do well health wise and she might attribute it to the posh inside, overnight area she has to herself down at The Post bathroom. More recently, she received as a gift from a volunteer a big, new bed that looks like a couch with bumper padding along the edges, perfect for resting her pretty head on! She truly loves the luxury of her new cushy bed.
