Update 7.17.16: We can’t forget this precious boy who has been waiting patiently for his forever family to find him. Rueben can be adopted through CCR’s Silver Paws program as he does have some residual effects from the heartworm treatment. Rueben does well most of the time and wouldn’t even know he had heartworms or that he went through such an invasive procedure until he passes out. Poor baby’s blood vessels contact rendering him unconscious for a few brief seconds – it doesn’t happen often but his family will need to know it does happen on occasion. He is under medical care of a vet and we want to ensure he receives on going care so to guarantee this we have entered Reuben into CCR’s silver paws program. As part of the Silver Paws Adoption Program, the rescue will cover all pre-approved medical expenses for the remainder of Reuben’s life. As CCR recognizes that with senior status and/or in times of high medical care needs, could place an undue burden on a family; CCR’s primary focus is to alleviate this concern as what we want most for Reuben is to be settled in a loving home with a family who is committed to giving him the fabulous life he has always deserved.
Update 11.23.14: We have the most awesome news! Reuben is free of the heartworm infection and is now ready to receive his forever family. Reuben is currently being fostered in Connecticut.
Reuben is an awesome Presa Canario that was literally on the brink of death. His foster Mom adores him and has helped him restore his faith in the human race. As you will see by his intake photos, Reuben was in very bad shape and required medical care due to a very neglectful owner. Reuben gets along well with other dogs but would be best suited to a home with children over 10 years of age. Reuben is currently being fostered in TN. Reuben is one of those very special boys that will fill your home with happiness, companionship, and joy. Reuben could win the Presidential election if he chose to run…that’s how great he is! Reuben for President!!!!
