Meet Reuben

Reuben has all the traits of an Irish Setter and at 3 years of age he is only starting to move away from puppy behaviour. He is a very loving dog and loves to get cuddles from you a much as he can. He will lie down on the floor beside you and place his head on you for a cuddle. He is a very big Irish Setter standing at 76cm (30 inches) at his shoulder. He can easily place his head on a bench-top. Reuben is good on the lead, he knows heel, sit, stay, lie down, gently (when feeding him snacks he gently takes the food from you). He gets along well with other dogs and is fantastic with cats as he has spent all his life living with 3 cats

he is very attached to Jack the ginger tabby who came into foster care with him. He can be stubborn when he wants to do what he wants, not the command you are giving him, but will eventually do what is asked of him. Reuben sleeps on his back. He has lived as an inside dog and would require this in his new home. He will also need the company of another dog or preferably a human for company a lot of the time. Reuben would not be suitable in a home with very young children as he would knock them over in his excitement of lolloping over to greet people.

Reuben was adopted on 04 February 2010 after 1 month in foster care
