Meet Ruben, he’s an eight year old mixed breed, he looks to have some Shepherd in him but it doesn’t really matter what he is because all you notice about him is his sad eyes and big smile. He’s an old school gent who I’m pretty sure would hold doors open and pull your chair out for you if he could. He’s quiet, gentle and undemanding, he loves everyone and everything and when he smiles at you it makes your heart hurt, because he’s had a hard time.
He has an old injury to his back leg that has appears to have healed without treatment, he doesn’t need anything doing to this, it has been looked at and he just needs pain relief to ease the stiffness, when his leg is aching he comes and points it at you so you give him a rub to ease the discomfort, then you’re rewarded with his smiles. He walks beautifully on the lead and doesn’t need massive amounts of exercise, he just needs you to love him and make him part of your family.
He lives happily with other dogs but would be better suited to a home without any really boisterous animals in it simply because he doesn’t like being knocked about, he’s great with all of my children but again, very small children may be too boisterous for him and he’d suit a home with older children who understand how sweet and gentle he is, he’s also okay with cats, not interested in them at all in fact so could happily live along side them. Ruben is fostered in Bloxwich (FR037).
