Rubio is a 6.5 year old Pittbul , boy (Born 5/2013) He arrived at Scooby on October/31/201 ; from Zamora
He was rescued by Scooby (Hoover) from a warehouse, where he was kept in chains… He must have lived like that for years…
Unfortunately he contracted a virus : Canine Distemper ( Moquillo Canino) we do not know if before or after arriving to the shelter, and he became very ill. He was reduced to skin and bones in no time as the disease affected part of his intestines and stomach, and began to affect his eyes, turning him half blind ( He is on diet food )
He is a very affectionate, loving, loyal boy ; just a super loving boy
Rubio is good with female dogs ; not so good with male dogs* ; and very good with cats***
He used to live in a Foster-Home the last 4 years but unfortunately he was brought back to the shelter ( Sept/2019) ( due to personal circumstances )
Now he is in urgent need of a Home… and because he is half blind he is in need of a calm Home ( that is what he needs the most) preferably as an only dog or with a female dog (in that way he will be calmer and it will be a bit easier on him with his fairly bad sight )

Update Sept/3/2019 : RUBIO, the story of a survivor
Rubio was rescued in Oct/2015 from a warehouse, where he was kept in chains. He must have lived like that for years. Unfortunately he contracted distemper, (we do not know if before or after arriving to the shelter) and he became very ill. He was reduced to skin and bones in no time as the disease affected part of his intestines and stomach, and began to affect his eyes, turning him blind at times.
Hoover, who rescued him, decided to take him home after a delicate operation that was carried out so that he won’t lose all his sight. The operation worked quite well (preventing him from becoming totally blind) but he did lose some of the vision in both eyes.
Rubio lives at the house of Hoover and Lillyana who take care of him with a lot of love, but he is still in foster care after 4 years. He’s a very affectionate and loyal dog and we believe that it is time to find him a forever home.
What does a family willing to adopt him need?
– To provide him with a space in which he feels safe. Once he knows his territory he doesn’t have a problem, although he does, sometimes, collides with objects.
– He could live with other dogs (in fact he lives with other dogs right now), but it would be preferable for him to be either an only dog, or to live with a female dog. That way he would be calmer. Tranquility is perhaps what he needs the most.
With female dogs***
