What Is 'Rescued by Ruby ' About?
The film focuses on the October 2017 mission where Ruby helped save the life of a teenage boy who was lost for over 36 hours. This comes after the Rhode Island Australian shepherd and border collie mix had a history of being adopted by five families and living much of her life in animal shelters.
Shelter volunteer and dog trainer Patricia Inman recently spoke out about the early history of Ruby. “She was a total knucklehead,” she said. “She jumped and bit her leash. She wouldn’t sit or lie down. She just never stopped moving. She was special, and she needed a special person.” Because of their efforts, Ruby was later named “Search and Rescue Dog of the Year” by the American Humane Hero Dog association.
