This is Reuben, and his Christmas list to Santa includes – a family of his very own, a nice warm bed to sleep in at night, a full belly when he gets hungry and a fenced yard filled with toys to run and play in.

Reuben is a lab/pit mix and is about a year old. This handsome fellow is strong, loving and playful. He plays well with other dogs, but we aren’t so sure about cats.

Reuben, who is still hanging on to his puppy traits, is learning that it isn’t very nice to jump on the humans, but he is a quick learner with the proper training and patience. His foster mom tells us he loves country music, and he loves to watch his foster parents play pool. He is up to date on shots, but does need to be neutered.

If you think your family would be a great match for this country guy, please contact Traci at 886-4378.
