Ruby the puppy was set to be put down because she was “unadoptable”. She became a K9 officer and 7 years later, she unknowingly ended up helping the woman who fought to keep her alive…
Smart dogs often show restlessness and unmanageable behavior as puppies. This was the situation with Ruby, a puppy Australian Shepherd. The shelter labeled her as unadoptable and prepared for her euthanasia. Patricia Inman, a dog trainer, intervened and begged for Ruby’s life just two hours before she was put down.
Patricia thought a gifted dog like Ruby would fit in well with the K9 squad. Ruby was accepted into a K9 training program as a result of her efforts. Her handler, Daniel O’Neil, had a lot of difficulties with her throughout the training. Ruby, on the other hand, became a force to be reckoned with after she settled down in a stable and loving household!
Ruby and Daniel solved many missing people cases and saved countless lives over the course of seven years. They got a call one day about a youngster who had been missing for 24 hours. The family was in great trouble. Ruby ultimately discovered the missing youngster unconscious in the bushes. The adolescent had suffered a concussion and was transported to the hospital in time to be rescued.
Officer Daniel was surprised to learn who the boy’s mother was when she came to thank him afterwards. Patricia, the trainer who had saved Ruby as a puppy, was the boy’s mother! Daniel told her Ruby was THE K9 who had saved her son’s life. Patricia was in tears as she attempted to comprehend this fortuitous coincidence. Her modest act of kindness saved her son’s life 7 years ago! What a marvel!
