A family have been left heartbroken after the loss of their beloved Jack Russell terrier, Ruby, who had a passion for surfing.
The Lloyd family, Rob, Marg and their daughter Tegan, were left reeling after Ruby's death after she was fatally savaged by two german shepherds on a residential street in March.
The eight-year-old pooch is remembered by many through her love of the ocean, boogie boards, swimming pools and her dog-sized life jacket she wore when taking on waves at the Sunshine Coast.
'She was something special and we miss her so much,' Rob Lloyd told Daily Mail Australia.

The family thought she would die of a heart attack as when she was at the beach she would 'go and go'
On a Saturday in late March, Marg Lloyd decided to take the terrier for a walk instead of to the beach considering a stroll would be less crowded.
When on Pt Cartwright Dr, two german shepherds escaped through their poorly maintained fencing grabbed the tiny dog and flung her into the air, knocking Marg to the ground in the process.
'She was so dazed and shocked, she had no idea what was going on,' Rob said.
'Ruby was still standing as she's one tough little thing, but was panting and had a lot of blood on her.'
