    Unlucky puppy ‘feeling sad’ after adopters let him down on his birthday

    Unlucky puppy ‘feeling sad’ after adopters let him down on his birthday

    He was all set to meet his forever family on his birthday, but then nobody turned up to take him home.

    Rescue puppy Rupert has been a "very unlucky boy" in his quest for a family, and now staff at Helping Yorkshire Poundies say he's "feeling sad".

    Eight-week-old crossbreed Rupert came into the Yorkshire rescue with his mum and four other brothers and sisters when they were just two days old.

    Rupert was the biggest of his littermates, Paddington, Winnie, Honey and Panda, and the very first to the food bowl.

    Charity volunteer, Sarah Dobbs, told The Mirror: "Rupert is a sweet, friendly little boy and is doing really well.

    "He has a sensitive side to his personality which means he can feel intimidated by dogs who are overly bouncy or in his face.

    "We are ideally looking for a home with a confident, calm female dog to help teach him social skills."

    Since his latest setback, Rupert is open to new families who can offer him a safe, permanent place to call home.

    "He won't be the easiest little pup and will need lots of input, but we're certain his perfect match is out there," Sarah said.

    Rupert's mum is a scruffy Lakeland terrier cross and his dad is a tall brindle Lurcher, so staff expect him to be a medium-to-large sized dog.

    He would suit an owner with Lurcher or sighthound experience, and can live with a confident cat and children.

    "Because he can be sensitive, we think he would suit a home in a quieter area rather than a town or city," Sarah said.

    "As a priority, he will need lots of positive and careful socialisation to help his social skills around other dogs as he grows up."

    If you can give Rupert a reliable and loving home without letting him down again, please apply to adopt him on the website.

    Another rescue dog desperate for a new family is brown eyed Buster, who spent the last two years living outside looking through windows.

    Kymm White, founder of South East Dog Rescue, was asked to help rehome the senior spaniel due to his former owner's ill health.

    Kymm said: "Buster was a well-loved family member but the lady caring for him was too poorly to walk him.

    "She said he had been kept outside for two years and that she felt sorry for him as he spent his days looking through the window into the home.

    "Once I heard this, I couldn't not help."

    Buster is looking for a retirement home filled with home comforts and lots of snuggles.
