About me

Oh hello there, my name is Rupert and I'm a young man looking for my new home. I know I look like a lab in my photos, but actually I'm a foxhound which is really quite different! We're bigger you know, and we REALLY like to be kept busy!

I am super-duper energetic and I love to go on lots of long walks, but I am not very good at recall yet! I am still very young so can be a little over excitable at times, but I just love people so much! I love to play and meet new dogs; I would be able to share my home with a confident role model dog but sadly cannot live with cats or small animals as being a hound I like to chase.

As you can imagine I need owners who are as active as I am and it would be great if they had owned scent hounds before so they understand my breed and are experienced dog owners. I am not very keen on being left for long periods and find it very scary so will need my new owners to be around all day to support me. I may be able to share my home with dog savvy children if we get along well at the centre.

If you are looking for the perfect exercise companion, then please fill in a home finder today!

Does your loved one have room in their heart, but not in their home, for a pet of their own? Blue Cross sponsorship is the perfect present for animal lovers.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
