'We adopted our adorable Rupert in September 2016. We had been looking to rescue a dog for quite a few months to keep Rex (our other dog) company before stumbling across WAHF on Instagram. After a few emails back and forth Eve sent us Rupert’s picture and we just knew he was the one!
To start with, he was very shy and nervous and would hide under the sofa and sleep under our bed at night but he has come so far since then and is full of SO much energy. He loves going for long walks and running off lead in the woods and on the beach. While we’re at work during the week we have a dog walker with two young boys who absolutely love walking him - he has always got on well with other dogs and children which has been amazing.
We’re so proud of how far he has come - on his first few walks he was so scared of the cars driving past and would jump up until we picked him up but now he is full of confidence.
Although he has ruined a fair few pairs of our shoes, we can’t imagine our lives without him now and can’t thank Eve and WAHF enough for bringing Rupert into our lives. He is the most loving, affectionate dog we have ever met who always greets us with endless kisses and cuddles. Since adopting Rupert, our friends have also adopted through WAHF and this has made us so happy!'
