2-year-old, Neutered Male, Walker Hound/German Shepherd Mix (best guess), 65 lbs.

"Hi! I'm Rupert, and I'm looking for my forever family!"
Rupert is around 2 years old, and when finally at his proper weight, should reach around 75 pounds. Rupert came into rescue after he was found wandering down the side of a road out in the country. He wasn't neutered, had no ID, and no microchip. Despite searches for his possible owners, none were found. He was thin, and in need of care, so his foster mom has been working hard to get him ready for adoption!

Rupert does well with a range of animals at his foster family's home, including cats, chickens, horses, and other dogs. He is a gentle giant, but is a little bit too clumsy to play with really tiny people or animals. He is smart and has learned several basic commands very quickly. He is crate trained. He must be allowed time outside for potty breaks, because he will absolutely not go potty in his crate or dog pen (he respects his inside space!). A fenced in yard or leash walking is required, as he can disappear quickly if something catches his eye (must be the hound dog in him). He is a total sweetheart, and would love nothing more than to be by your side, whether it is on the couch on a lazy day, a car ride, or a hike for an adventure!

Rupert is heartworm negative and has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and is on his monthly preventatives. All he needs is a place to call home!

Adoption fees include all vetting and transport. Animals are in foster care or boarding in the East Tennessee area prior to adoption and transport. Vet references, personal references, and home visits may be required prior to adoption.

About Pooches & Purrs Cooperative - NY/NJ

About Our Rescue Group...

Pooches & Purrs Cooperative is a group of rescues and individual rescuers that are working hard to find loving homes for the dogs, cats, kittens and puppies that find their way into our care through no fault of their own. Each individual or group has several wonderful dogs In Tennessee, Alabama or Kentucky looking for homes! All of them are completely vetted and neutered/spayed (if age appropriate) and on heartworm protection. All of them come with complete medical records. Their adoption fee of $500 covers their complete age appropriate vetting and heartworm preventative as well as their transportation to your area.
Our rescues don't have an actual shelter building in the New England area. Due to this it is not always possible to meet them prior to their adoption. At times, a dog may be in foster care in New England and their bio will clearly be marked as such so you will know. These southern dogs & cats are brought up to their new owners weekly! We have a 14 day money back guarantee and the pet can be rehomed appropriately if things don't work out. Each group tries hard to get good matches in your homes so that everyone has a happy life together! To date the cooperative has placed over a two thousand dogs and puppies, cats and kittens in loving New England homes! Each group has many, many, references of happy adopters up in your area that can fill you in on their experience. Just email and they can pass along that information for your convenience. Thanks!
