Rue was given to WD4C by a concerned donor, who knew that the pup’s high energy and unbelievable drive to work put her at high risk for ending up at a shelter. Rue arrived on Christmas Eve, her crate decorated with green and red ribbons. At 13 weeks old, she was a tornado of speed and enthusiasm. 10 years later, work is her play. She would rather search than go to the dog park, and nothing thrills her more than the sight of her working vest. Rue is going to be a gift that keeps on giving.
