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.
