Hi my name is Ruben, I am currently enrolled in the puppies for parole program. I am a sweet boy but very shy, I like other dogs I am just unsure of people. Ruben had been running the streets for a few years with no human contact so he was unsure and untrusting. Now that he has been in the program for awhile, he is doing much better. Ruben has learned how to sit, lay down, stay and he walks very nicely on a leash.He is working on going to "his place"--a dog mat, waiting at the door for his person to go first, shake and high 5. Once Ruben trusts you, he is an extremely loyal companion. He is very low energy and mellow. He would do best in a quiet and calm home with one or two people.

About City of Cameron

About Our Shelter...

The City of Cameron is partnering with the Department of Corrections program Puppies for Parole. In Cameron, we have Western Missouri Correctional Center and Crossroads Correctional Center that we work with for the Puppies for Parole Program . ( ) The dogs are shelter dogs from the City of Cameron that are viewed as hard to adopt because of socialization/behavior issues. The dogs are then sent for basic obedience training (Canine Good Citizen) where the learn basic obedience training along with being house trained and kennel trained. The dogs are then adopted out to loving families who are looking for a dog to add as a member of their family.
