Ruby was rescued by the Utah Animal Advocacy Foundation on Dec. 10, 2013, when she was only five days old. She was born with a severe cleft lip and palate which made it impossible for her to nurse. On Mar. 25 she had her cleft palate repaired but her lip remains untouched. Check out her page for adorable videos and info on how she's paying it forward (with help from her mom) by helping other dogs in need.

2. Ari Would Go
