Ready to meet Rupert? A pup of incomparable happiness, strength and smarts, Rupert is a fun-loving dude who sees the world for the truly amazing, exciting place it is. He’s raring for a new home where he can play lots of games, get outside and keep on learning!
Big fan of: Rope toys! Rupert is a super strong boy who loves showing off just how much herculean strength he has during games of tug-of-war with a sturdy rope. Seriously—this boy is so strong and so proud of it that he’d definitely be a body builder if there was a doggy equivalent! Aside from playtime, Rupert has a few other hobbies he seems to enjoy—one of them being getting tons of scratches! Rupert loves pretty much everyone as long as they’re willing to give him some rubs. When he’s really feeling it, this pup even rolls over to show off his belly! And if that’s not enough, Rupert would be the perfect buddy to take on some outdoor fall adventures! He has plenty of energy for long hikes, loves getting outside and even does the cutest little gallop on leash! Plus, he’s smart, too. Rupert may already be housetrained and loves showing off how good at sit he is!
Working on: Keeping his excitement in check! Rupert has no problem having a good time, and sometimes when he’s having a lot of fun, he puts his manners on the backburner. For example, Rupert has been easily excitable in the shelter and has tended to jump up on people. On walks, he pulls quite strongly when he sees something interesting—which to Rupert could be anything! To help Rupert reign in his excitement, his adopter will need to provide him with a quiet, separate area for when he gets overexcited, give him with outlets for his physical and mental energy and continue his training to help him remember not to show off his super strength while on walks!
Dream home: Rupert is looking for an adopter who help him continue to blossom into his best self! Because he can sometimes forget just how big and strong he is, we think a home with teens and up would be best. Rupert has never lived with cats and prefers to meet other dogs one-on-one—so if you’re interested in doing a dog-dog intro with your current pup we’d love to help!
