Rupert is a sprightly older boy, full of energy, who loves to hang out with a human. He is very friendly with other friendly dogs and likes to cuddle up with people or other dogs on the couch. He is quite the cuddle-bug and likes to sit on a chair with a human, or even on a friendly lap.

He is still getting used to using a dog-door, but asks to go out when he needs a toilet break and with further training will be quite happy to use a dog-door 24/7.

Rupert walks happily on a lead, with other dogs, and does not pull. He is curious and friendly when meeting other dogs on leads and can easily handle a 40 minute walk. He is very keen to join in when his two foster brothers play chasey and will run around the house like a young man. He has lovely manners with the other dogs and is gentle when accepting treats. He will sit for his bowl and wait until given permission to eat. He does not usually join in when his brothers bark, but will run to the front door to meet guests with a friendly, excited welcome.

Rupert is a sweet little boy who is eager to please and would enjoy a home with another friendly and playful dog. He would probably be best suited to a home where he has a human for company for at least part of the day.

Thank you to Heather of Dixon Dog Photography for the fantastic photos of Rupert.

Please note: we do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25.

It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. Please go to your local pound, or contact your local group. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia Pounds in the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.
