Reuben had the scars of past abuse: a tail that was broken in too many places to count, a scar over his left eye that speaks of a healed, deep gash. When Annette first brought Reuben home, he was afraid of men – especially men wearing baseball hats.  However, with love and patience, he has overcome those fears. Now that Reuben knows what love is, he has come out of his shell and is happiest when he is with his forever family!
Annette adopted Reuben, a pit bull / boxer mix, three years ago from Powell Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in Columbus, Ohio.  PAWS pulled Reuben from a local shelter because, even though he had passed the behavioral and temperament testing, the shelter only allowed 10 pit bulls or pit bull mixes at a time.  The number of pit bull and pit mixes at the shelter was increasing, and if he hadn’t been rescued, Reuben would have been euthanized.  Thankfully, the shelter has since eliminated the ’10 pit bulls at a time’ rule. Pit bulls and ‘bully breed mixes’ like Reuben made them converts.Reuben 1
Annette is also now a pit bull ‘convert’.  She has never been the recipient of such complete love and devotion as she has received from Reuben. Reuben has changed her life and she feels that it is her duty to do what she can to place a positive light on the amazing pit bull breed.
