Ruby the Science Dog

Ruby the Science Dog

Hi everyone, my name is Ruby and I am new to the Faculty of Science.  This is a big campus filled with so many people and although I am really excited to be here, I am also a little bit scared.  I would love to meet some new friends and if you feel the same please feel free to join my regular walking group!  I will be on campus most Tuesdays and Fridays, so watch Twitter for details about my walks.

I was rescued from the Edmonton Humane Society in February 2014 and I had such a great personality that everyone knew I would be a good candidate for pet therapy! I went through lots of training and now I am accredited with Chimo Animal Assisted Wellness and Learning. I have even helped out in final exam stress busting sessions here at the U of A, at NAIT, and at King's University College! I love to volunteer and meet new friends.
