Introducing... Handsome Reuben!
Reuben is another gentle soul that was rescued from the horrors of the Romanian kill shelter. Like many of the others he spent between 2-3 years living there were he had to share the smallest of spaces for shelter and fight for his food and water, along with the dread of the shelter workers coming to start their shift every day.
Upon getting Reuben off the transport van, this poor boy was exhausted and he looked like he'd completely given up. He wouldn't stand and he just flopped into our arms seemingly accepting of what fate was ahead of him.
Within only a few days, Reuben realised he was in a safe space where people were kind to him, he had a soft, warm bed and regular meals being fed to him away from the others dogs so he could eat in peace.
We were lucky enough to catch on video, the first tickle he received. His eyes closed and he just melted into the person's arms. It was like the penny had dropped and he knew he no longer had to worry about anything.
