We have decided to desex Ruba. She has had 3 litters, and all required a caesarean due to small numbers. We would not like her to have another caesarean , in case her numbers were small again. It is a pity as she is a great mother and her pups have all been lovely. We have hopes for one of her pups from Hakea litter in the show ring - June 2024
