BIO: Ruben came from a shelter in North Carolina when he was turned in by the owner who had too many animals. Ruben was part of a breeding pair. Ruben:
Is super sweet!
Needs a fenced yard
Needs another small dog in the home to keep him company when you are not home
Needs continuing help with housebreaking
Should not live in an apartment
Ruben is such a sweet fellow who is very quiet and loves people. He enjoys being outside where he can run around with the other fosters but he also loves lap time and will follow his person everywhere. Ruben is super smart and learns quickly. He does well on a schedule to take care of bathroom needs but will need continued reinforcement. Ruben does great with female pups but it is better for him not to go to a home where there is another male dog. When Ruben had his dental, he lost quite a few teeth and does better with eating if he has his food softened.
Ruben is a sweet, sweet pup. And did I mention that he is so very handsome? Well he is!
Please consider giving Ruben his forever home!

=============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH, ME or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
