Rhode Island State Police Trooper, who is also a Salve Regina University alumnus, Dan O’Neil, and fellow K-9 Ruby are the inspiration for the new Netflix movie, “Rescued by Ruby”.
The film, which premieres Thursday, March 17, depicts the story of Cpl. O’Neil and his partner Ruby who was adopted by the RI Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, according to Salve Regina University.
“Chasing his dream of joining an elite K-9 unit, a state trooper teams up with another underdog: Ruby, a smart but naughty shelter pup. Based on a true story,” Netflix says of the film.
