Labrador Friends Available Lab _ ReubenMEET REUBEN! He’s a 2-year-old red lab. He was found and spent 3 weeks at the shelter. When volunteers contacted us to ask us to save this boy, we could not resist. Reuben is handsome and fairly big. He needs an active home ready to exercise him, love and socialize him. Reuben unfortunately is HW positive but once he is done will treatment, he will be as good as new.

FOSTER UPDATE: Despite what his boundless energy (and pals at daycare) would have you believe, this little red wonder does indeed rest!! He’s happy to curl up in a doggy bed when he’s tired, but he’s even happier to snuggle up with you (and your cat!!) on the couch or bed. He really is a sweet, smart boy who bonds very strongly with his person!!

UPDATE from Foster: Reuben is the most handsome red lab you’ll ever meet! He’s on the “medium” side size-wise, weighing in at around 50lbs. Reuben lives with another dog and three cats, and has met a few of her friends, all with a wagging tail and without fear or incident. He looooves his foster-brother-pup, and is very interested in the cats. Luckily, the cats he lives with know how to handle over-curious pups, but he might make less-dog-friendly-cats uncomfortable. Reuben is such a spunky, sweet boy who is just bursting with personality. He has lots of energy, and is just dying to play… He has likely never heard the word “No!” before he came to his foster-mom’s house, but he’s learning about rules and boundaries very quickly!! He’s also picking up some basic obedience, and really shines when it comes to learning his leash manners.

UPDATE: Reuben has completed his HW treatment and he is doing great. He is currently in a foster home and he is thriving.  He is doing great with the cats (he ignores them) and loves his four legs foster brother so much, in fact, that we have a hard time keeping him quite. A few more weeks or being quite and then he will finally be ready to run and play! We are so happy Reuben is doing so well.

    Hello- we were wondering if Reuben has been around young kids at all. We are looking for a dog that will fit in with our family. We have 3 rambunctious kids ages 7, 4, & 3. We are also wondering if he is housebroken. We’ve already been approved to adopt. Thanks!

    Lisha,
    I believe he is housebroken. Let me find out about children for you. 🙂
    Thanks so much,
    Christie
