Rupert needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle.
NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.

Known background: Rupert was found stray/abandoned and unclaimed at the age of about 4 months covered in dog bite wounds. He was cared for, for 8 months but his owner said he is not good with dogs and made arrangements to put him to sleep several months ago but on our advice we asked her to neutered him in prep. for rehoming. Today Rupert's owner decided she couldn't keep him any more and so we arranged to take him in as an emergency. Rupert is neutered, vaccinated and chipped. Was in Guildford Kennels

Visit Rupert's thread for daily updates, lots of pictures and videos. Please click to submit Online Application We will match you with a dog that suits your lifestyle, please remain open we successfully home 350 dogs per annum. We work fast to secure our dogs their loving homes.

***PLEASE HELP: We have to ask for suggested min. donation £175 at the time of adoption, to support so many dogs in kennels. We have no state sponsorship and exist on the goodwill of the public and our supporters. Rescue Remedies offers their dogs back up for life.

Sounds like he has experienced things in his short life that he shouldn't have had to experience. Way too young for someone to have given up on him. Safe now Rupert. I so hope you can put your past behind you. Your life is on the up young man, it's wall to wall loving for you from here on in :smiley-gen132.gif:

Rupert is utterly butterly gorgeous :smiley-love014.gif:
I am completely hook line and sinker for this wee guy, he charmed me totally today :smiley-love029.gif:
Met him in the paddock this morning with Debbie and Karen, his tail was wagging and he came over to me for treats and we made friends :D Rupert loved charging back and forth between us and showed me how well he sits and gives a paw for treats.

Then out again later this afternoon for some photos, behold this beauty ...

Before there were any photos of Rupert I felt some serious 'internet love' for him, the photos have seriously twanged my heart strings!

Rupert is an absolute stunner - very unusual markings. Gorgeous boy. So glad he is safe :smiley-gen132.gif:

Martin walked Rupert today and Tootsie and I joined them. Rupert is stunning in the fur, still so young and looks like he still has some growing to do if his paws are anything to go by. A very chilled out boy who was a little unsure of Tootsie's staffie croaking noise she makes when walking but soon got used to it. They got very close at times and no reaction from either. Rupert was interested in the horses in the field but just curiosity. Then we walked past a field of young cows and I think he wanted to have a go at herding them, but again no aggression or barking just interest. He is a cracking dog.

Grabbed Rupert for a walk today and yes, he is scrummy :smiley-gen132.gif: Tia was on the extender lead at first and Rupert was pulling quite strongly, but a quick "here" and he's straight back to you and rubbing his sides against your leg :smiley-gen132.gif: Every single time :D

We started off with a walk along the bridleways to see how Rupert would be walking with Tia. Keen would best describe it :D

Rupert1.jpg


Then we headed to the back field for some exploring and sniffing

Rupert2.jpg


After a long walk around the field we went into the Rottie paddock where Rupert had a drink and more exploring

Then it was time to meet Tia properly

Rupert5.jpg


Hang on, what's all this about? Rupert looks like he wants to play...

Rupert6.jpg


And Tia was quite happy to egg him on...

And off they went :D

Until finally they stopped to share a refreshing drink :)

By now they were both knackered, so we headed off back towards kennels. Or so I thought...

play39field.jpg


After chasing each other around the field they'd finally had enough ;)

play40field.jpg


No wait, there's a branch we can play with :smiley-dance010.gif:

play41field.jpg


Only one thing for it, break out the treats :mrgreen:

Finally.jpg


Rupert loves to play. And play and play :mrgreen: The pair of them played so long that I took over 430 photos. They played chase, they played with a branch and they played rough, and not once did Rupert falter, even when Tia turned up the rough play a notch Rupert still loved every minute of it.

When I put Tia back in the car Rupert didn't want to leave her, so I had to carry him in to kennels, for which I was rewarded with huge facelicks :mrgreen: We met Barry who walking Annabel, and Rupert said hello very nicely if a little apprehensive for a fleeting moment. More facelicks as I carried him past all the barking dogs to his kennel, where his dinner was waiting and a nice cozy bed, both of which he will no doubt enjoy.
Rupert is a wonderful dog. He's still just a baby at heart, full of joy and has no place being in rescue. What a little cracker :smiley-gen132.gif:

Not just shaking off his "Not good with other dogs" label, he's ripped it up and burried the remains! Amazingly done John and Tia.

Thank you John that must have taken you over an hour to upload on to his thread. Think we can put paid to the 'not good with dogs' label which came with him and nearly lost him his life. Thank you!

Fabulous, John. Tia is such a great girl to welcome so many other residents and you must have spent hours with her and Rupert keeping a careful watch on proceedings. It is just wonderful that Rupert has come such a long way in such a short space of time. Let's hope his forever home comes for him soon....he has super markings and colour.

Great to see Rupert getting out with Tia John.

Here are a few pics of me walking him on Saturday - he's a real cutie and an absolute pleasure to walk. He was also really good at walking with Tootsie, so i'm really not sure where the "bad with other dogs" label has come from??
Anyway i'm sure he will be snapped up pretty quickly as he is such a handsome dog!
