Hello everybody, my name is Reuben. I am a super sweet and social boy of 2-3 years old. I also like to think that I have quite a unique look with all those different colours and patterns. All natural, of course.😉
I was found in a real bad state, being tied up in a fenced field. But luckily, I was rescued and brought to the shelter where I could recover.
I am looking for my forever home, a place where people will not only open their house for me, but also their heart.
My caretakers say that I have the most loving personality. I am also very playful. I can play non-stop with other dogs. But don’t worry, I enjoy spending lots of quality time with my human friends as well.
Next to lots of joy, I’m also bringing along a ‘medical backpack’ to my new home.
I was bitten by a sandfly and got leishmania for which I received treatment and it is now dormant and under control. Leishmania is controllable and NOT life shortening if monitored correctly, I do need to take inexpensive medication to make sure that the disease stays dormant and under control. Leishmania disease is not transmittable and only requires blood tests blood tests twice a year to monitor treatment.
My caretakers also believe that I was probably hit by a car which has caused damage to my external anal sphincter, so my bowel movement isn’t 100% right.
I know this is probably a lot to take in, but if you have any questions about my medical history (or my amazing personality 😊), don’t hesitate to contact the organisation. They will be more than happy to provide you with extra information.
I like to think that I’m a strong dog, not only because I am dealing with these medical issues, but mainly because I haven’t let those steal away my loving personality and life joy.
I enjoy doing all kinds of fun activities and a good bowl of food (and yummy treats) just as much as any other dog.
Playing games, going on walks, … or just relaxing and cuddling on the sofa… as long as I can do those things with my human friends, I’m the happiest dog in the world.
