Adopt an animal

Rupert

Age: 13 years oldSex: MaleBreed: CoonhoundAdoption fee: £150.00

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.

PLEASE NOTE, DUE TO THE  COVID RESTRICTIONS WE ARE ONLY ABLE RE HOME TO ADOPTERS WHO LIVE IN THE YORK AND SURROUNDING  AREA.  

WE ARE STILL UNABLE TO REHOME RUPERT UNTIL THE REMAINING RESTRICTIONS HAVE BEEN LIFTED BUT WE WILL NOW START ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR HIM. DUE TO THE COMPLEX NEEDS OF RUPERT WE WILL BE COLLECTING APPLICATIONS AND SELECTING THE MOST SUITABLE HOME. DUE TOTHE HIGH VOLUME OF APPLICATIONS WE ARE RECEIVING, IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD BACK FROM FROM US WITHIN 2 WEEKS IT MEANS UNFORTUNATELY YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL THIS TIME FOR THIS DOG.SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS WILL BE INVITED TO THE CENTRE ONCE THE RESTRICTIONS ARE LIFTED AND WE ARE ABLE TO OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AGAIN.

My personality...

I walk nicely on a lead

I can be left alone for short periods

I'd prefer to be the only animal in a home

I’d prefer an adult only household

I’m young at heart

I’d prefer to be the only dog in a home

I love food and treats
