After several attempts to find him a home, the pup was deemed unadoptable and had to be put down, when a volunteer trainer named Pat Inman felt the dog was intelligent despite all the belligerence and hoped that some attention and discipline specific would save his life.

She contacted the Rhode Island State Police who offered her to Officer Dan O’Neil. For Dan, it was his best chance to land his dream job. Lots of patience and hard work later, the pup has become a loyal K-9 partner.
In seventh year in the unit, Ruby found an injured missing boy in the ravine who turned out to be the son of Pat, the dog shelter volunteer who saved her life.
