Rue

Sheep

About Rue: The friendliest of her sisters, she may not be the biggest, but as for the loudest, Rue certainly takes the cake! She yells a lot if she needs or wants something, and won't let the urgency be dismissed! The white, heart-shaped spot on Rue's nose is the lightest spot on her whole body, otherwise she is quite dark-black, and shorter furred than her very floofy sisters. She'll greet you by putting her face near your face, until she gets the attention she's looking for. 

History: Rue and her two sisters, Perry and Poppy, were rescued from a situation of neglect in New Brunswick in the summer of 2019. Concerns were raised by a number of local individuals, who noticed various sheep and goats being tied up to tires in a field, during the heat of the summer, with very limited water and no shelter from the sun. We were first able to negotiate the release of the twin sisters, Poppy and Perry, and were later able to return after Rue's release was negotiated, also. When they arrived at Wallflower we were concerned for their ligaments as they were tethered tightly and tangled, still as young sheep in their developmental stages. Luckily, all three sheep grew up to be healthy girls at Wallflower Sanctuary. 

Favourites: Meg, dogs, her sisters, Homer (the sheep's BFF). 

Rue's mantra: "Theres nothing that a forceful "baaah" won't fix"
