April 1/13: I was adopted!
Rupert knows basic commands, is housebroken and has good house manners. He's easy to get along with and is a very affectionate and sweet boy.
Rupert is gentle with children and is an all around lovely boy.
He arrived in our care after being adopted from a pound by a family that didn't have time for him. How he ended up in the pound in the first place is unknown to us. He was with his family for only a few weeks before they surrendered him to us. Rupert will be so happy to have some stability in his life! He likes to romp and play and will be happiest in a home where he will get lots of opportunities for exercise.
He gets along well with other most animals including female dogs, cats, birds and small animals. He'd be happy to join a home with another well socialized female playmate to romp and wrestle with. He can be dominant with other males, a home with only female dogs is best. He needs work on his on leash manners when he sees other dogs, but in the hands of a confident owner this can be worked on. He is not a good choice for going to dog parks because he can be dominant with males.
Rupert was born approximatley June 2011 and is a happy, healthy boy. He is on the smaller side, around 100 lbs. Maybe he has some retriever in him? He has been vaccinated and neutered .
Rupert is being fostered in the Petawawa area and we will consider helping transport to the right family, but picking him up in person is preferred. To be considered for adopting Rupert please complete an adoption application and return it to us via email. Our adoption policies and procedures are outlined on our FAQ page. An adoption donation of $450 applies.
