Meet Rumor! *UPDATE: ADOPTED!!!*

Meet Rumor (aka Ruby Roo), a loving and friendly four year-old Staffordshire Terrier/Bulldog mix available for adoption through Canine Castaways Rescue! Rumor’s DNA was tested and is 87.5% Staffie, 12.5% Bulldog, but she’s 100% sweetheart … she loves to use those big smooshy lips of hers to give her people lots of kisses! Ruby Roo had a rough start in life, being in and out of the city shelter four times in the last two years (through no fault of her own) and all she wants is a forever home. After being picked up by animal control and being in the shelter, Rumor has developed a particular fear of men in hats and can be very shy when she first meets new people. Due to Ruby Roo being a big girl at 88 pounds, she will need to go to a home with children 10 or older … she also needs to be the only pet because she won’t want to share her people snuggles with any other fur siblings! Are you in need of some smooshy doggy kisses? If you’re interested in Rumor and want to learn more, please call (317) 345-6578 and/or email You can also fill out an adoption application on the rescue’s website – there is a $10 nonrefundable application fee. Rumor’s adoption fee is $150.

Rumor is …
– a very sweet and loving girl who lives to give smooshy kisses!
– extremely smart (she already knows the commands “sit”, “down”, “shake” and “up”), is currently working on her leash manners AND her foster parents are donating two training sessions!
– best in a home where she’s the only pet and where the children are 10 or older.
– crate-trained.
– housebroken.
– spayed.
– up-to-date on her vaccinations.
