More about me
Male (Extra-large). Boerboel Blend. Adult - DOB: June 2014.
Shelter: DogtownSA - Hennops River (Gauteng)
Hi world! How you doing! I am Ruben! My life has been a bit of a roller coaster. I was passed around a bit and I was a bit boisterous so my family could not manage me, so I was passed around some more. I was also chained up at one stage but thank goodness that is all behind me now! I made my way to Dogtown where I can now go from misunderstood to good!
Let’s face it, I’m a big guy and I am very intimidating, I don’t mean anything by it. I never quite learned how to “behave” so I am a bit jumpy and all over the place but I am working on that everyday and one of these days I will be ready to be adopted!
I prefer to be an only child, I have never quite gotten used to the idea of having a fur-friend. I really enjoy going out on walks. I take my time and like to sniff anything and everything in the vicinity.
I love food and treats which makes my training really easy! I am not too fond of being touched but I am easily persuaded otherwise when it comes to treats
My perfect home would be one where there are no kids (I am just too big and clumsy im afraid). I would love to have a big big garden where I can run around and explore all day. I would need a family who are experienced and will put in the time to help me overcome my “quirks”.
I am working on making myself the dog I know I can be and once that happens, I would love for you to come meet me and give me a chance!
