Ruby was just too lively.  No family wanted to keep her.

Dan O’Neil is a state policeman.  He needed a search-and-rescue dog.  Ruby was perfect!

She found a lost and hurt teen.  She was meant for this job!

Pray: What are some ways dogs are helpful to people? Thank God for dogs.

He trained Ruby to be a police K-9 dog. The two partners found a lost and injured teen. He was Patricia Inman’s son! Ruby won an award. She was the Rescue Hero Dog of 2018. Isaiah 12:2 reminds us, “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.”
