I walk nicely on a lead

Rupert came to the centre as his previous owner sadly passed away, Rupert was devoted to his owner and has really struggled to come to terms with her passing. Rupert is a dog who has complex needs so we are looking for experienced adopters who have time and patience to give Rupert and help him settle.
Rupert struggles to trust people he does not know so adopters will need to do more than one meet and greet before adopting him. Once he knows you and trusts you his true cheeky playful character starts to shine through, he has become a real favorite here at the centre as he never ceases to make us smile with something he is getting up to.
Rupert will need adopters who will give him the space he needs to feel safe, he can feel intimidated when in small confined spaces. Ruperts moto is space, space, space.
Although on the older side Rupert still has his giddy half hours and will then go to bed for a long snooze. Once he knows and trusts you he is a very loyal and loving boy who just wants a home to call his own. He will need an adult only home where he is the only pet.
We will be collecting applications and selecting the most suitable home for him.
PLEASE NOTE WE CAN ONLY RE HOME TO ADOPTERS WHO LIVE IN THE SAME TIER AS YORK.
