The Shelter Pet Project

Why Rueben is so special:

I first saw Rueben through the Best Friends website, and I knew then he was perfect. When we finally went and adopted him, people cried; no one really expected an 11-year-old dog with medical problems to get adopted, especially after 10 years at the shelter! He's the sweetest dog ever: nothing but love 24/7 no matter what. He's super smart too! He's learned seven tricks in less than a month, and plays food puzzles! Who says old dogs can't learn new tricks?

If your pet could talk, what would he or she tell us about you?:

Thank you! I love you. They always said I would have a home someday. I love it when you throw food around the room so I get my exercise. I love it even more when we go for walks around the yard. I LOVE WALKS. I'll never tell you how I got the cookies off the shelf, though. Really, thanks for the cuddles 24/7 and the FOOD.
