Looking for a loving home for Ruben
Ruben:
4/5 years old,
Male
Neutered
Vaccinated
Gets along with all dogs.
He is very loyal and loving.
He can move around perfectly without his paw but does get tired.
His Story:
Ruben is a beautiful mixed dog that I rescued in Ecuador. I found him wandering the streets severely malnourished; maggots had eaten his paw exposing his bones. He had and still has scars from where he was tied up around his neck. He was treated at the vet for many months. I was unable to take him into my place, so I found a wonderful location in the country where he is being taken care of him 24/7. I spent the last 2 years… looking for a home for him and another dog I rescued, unfortunately, no one wanted to adopt him due to his age and disability. I was able to bring back one dog with me, but Ruben remains in Ecuador. I am so saddened that I haven’t been able to get him a home, I am unable to have him stay with me, but I am desperately looking for a place for him to live, with a loving family. I continue to check in a few times a week, send money for his living, food, and training. I can arrange his transportation (costs and arrangements with pet travel company) to the U.S., I am just looking for a loving home. I have hundreds of pictures and videos of him from when I rescued him to present. Please message me for information.

Ohhhh yes please share more! What a face! You are such a big-hearted human for continuing to help him!

And he appears to be a good candidate for a prosthetic limb too, which would be tremendously helpful as he ages.

Can you share some video? Upload it to YouTube first then paste the URL. We will do what we can to get the word out.

So weird I can’t share his photo here. Can you either change their formatting on your website so I can past them here, or Private Message me with them so I will share them around? Thanks.

What a sweetheart….Rueben AND YOU!  Such  a great story about a great dog❤

Love the videos showing  how truly happy he is.  Nothing  warms my heart more than seeing a dog take a happy roll in the grass…or the dirt!    And he truly is smiling in his photos.   He knows how to ham it up for the camera.

Thank you for all you do for this sweet pup.  And I love his little curly haired fuzzy fur buddy too..

Hugs

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!
