Reuben does not like dogs in his face and struggles to deal with excitable dogs yet he will tolerate puppies / young dogs jumping all over him???

Last week I took Reuben and a collie pup for a walk together during a break in flyball and this pup was diving all over him whilst I was trying to walk them, Reuben paid no attention to him at all and did not respond with play.
He was the same with a 6 month old staffie cross today, it is now the same size as Reuben but reubs has met him a few times in the last couple of months. Again this was diving all over him and he just turned away and was not in the slightest bit interested.

Then we come to T bone. He is a male staffie, 3 years old and Reuben knew him when he was younger and they were walked together a few times. T is a very excitable dog and Reuben on most occasions wants to kill him. A few weeks ago when it was nice he was actually off lead with him for a few minutes and they did play but it got very rough very quickly so we put T bone back on the lead. We bumped into him again today and Reuben went for him and I think he would have bitten him if I had not managed to pull him back. Even when I stood in front of Reuben he pulled from behind me to get to him and almost pulled me over

I cannot understand my dog at times scratch

He obviously knows that they are only puppies, so allows them to jump on him, but wont take the same behaviour from an adult dog

Yes I agree that its acceptable for puppies to jump but not for an older dog.

like Reuben, Diesel off lead is fine with all dogs and on-lead isn't impressed with dogs that come into his face.

Alfie can be the other way Jo , he isn't to keen on pups in his face , but I think some times it all depends on wether he takes a dislike to them Or not for no real reason

Puppies generally show very little tension (they haven't really grasped danger yet so don't get very defensive and tense) so most dogs recognise they aren't really threatening, just daft.

Having said that when we got Miz she was very concerned with pups, perhaps because they don't act like normal dogs (who she didn't like at the time anyway) but maybe because her prey drive was so high. Either way it took me quite awhile to show her how to react to them. Even now she is quite hard on them and won't let them get away with much daftness, which can be very useful with certain pups!
