Rupert is Barking for His Forever Home.

Rupert had a really rough start in life. But the happy news is, this little 3-year old darling is going to bring so much joy, love and laughter to his new family. He is eager to please, loves to be with you, quiet, gentle, and loves to play. Rupert’s first 3 years of life have been scary, sheltered, and neglectful…It’s time for him to learn what the world has to offer and what being a dog is supposed to be like!

In many ways he appears to not have lived in a home; and he must have a bed or safe place to run to. All normal things seem new to Rupert; he has no idea what furniture is or how to hop up on it like other dogs. All of this is improving every day as his confidence grows.

He is also super smart and so eager to do what you want. He was house trained in a few days, settled right into meal routines and is at his happiest with his people. If you show him what you want, it’s amazing how quickly he understands.

He is hand shy around his head, mouth and neck, but he adores being touched and will melt into a massage. He likes to be picked up and cuddled, but is definitely not a full time lap dog.

Rupert is looking for someone(s) that will take him on adventures and walks. Someone that can commit to walking him daily and finding time to play with his toys, give him massages and teach him that touch is only a wonderful thing now. A family of his own that wants to show him everything he’s missed for the last 3 years.

Rupert will be ready in just a few weeks as he still has to be neutered, (Shhhh), his ears and eye infections re-checked, and his itchy pink skin under control. Rest assured he’s going to be just fine and a healthy happy pup with the right home. If you think it might be you, don’t delay in filling out your application here.

You are the lifeblood of our work on behalf of animals.

As a non-profit organization, the Victoria Humane Society depends entirely on donations from kind-hearted people like you. Every month, we rescue literally dozens of dogs and cats, and sometimes other small animals, many from horrific circumstances such as neglect, starvation and abuse. The associated costs of rescue are significant, from arranging transportation for the animals out of remote communities and into our care, to emergency medical bills to save animals lives, to spay and neuter costs, vaccinations, hospitalizations, medications and on-going food costs and incidentals. Monthly and one-time donors are literally our most critical form of support. We thank you for donating what you can today.
