Hello! I am Jupiter’s Joyous Gem, known to my family as Ruby. You will see from my photograph that I am a red fox colour. I am very loyal and good natured. Because of my lovely temperament my owners have decided that I can have puppies. I haven’t had a say in this but I am sure I will be a good mum.
They have had my eyes tested and my hips and elbows x-rayed. If you are interested in how healthy I am I will tell you my results….
Firstly, after a comprehensive eye examination I am happy to tell you that I have no inherited eye disease. My owners will have my eyes tested annually to make sure that when I breed I will be in tip top condition!
The score for both my right and left elbows is “0”
My hip scores for both my right and left hip are 3 – total score 6 which I am told is very good!
If you want a breakdown of these scores they are:
Norberg angle R – 0 L – 0
Subluxation R – 2 L – 2
Cranial acetabular edge R – 1 L – 1
I am up to date with my vaccinations and on the lst August 2009 I weighed 28.8kg.
When out for a good long walk in the woods with Millie and Marley, my sisters, I am the one who, have an initial burst of energy and enjoyment of the freedom, hangs back by my owners to see if I can scrounge a biscuit or two, she is a soft touch and I usually get a treat, he is more sensible and throws a toy to distract me from my obsessive nuzzling up to the nearest coat pocket which smells divine!
