Meet Lupin - ADOPTED!!

Meet Lupin! The dapper little guy was surrendered to the rescue after a new baby was born into his family. He has always been good with his kids, but his mom remarried, and her new husband was not a fan of dogs in the home. Lupin ended up being kept outside after many years as an inside family dog. That was a really tough transition on this senior boy who has always known life as an inside family dog. His mom reached out to rescue to make sure he gets to live out his golden years in a home that treats him like family.

Lupin is now safely settled into his foster home, living with the other larger dogs and two foster parents. He's crate trained, housetrained, has excellent leash skills, and LOVES going for walks. He's great in the car and on road trips and is proving to be a very gracious guest in their home. His foster mom, Cindy, reports:

"He is a wonderful dog. So easy! He puts himself to bed at night in the crate and goes in there off and on during the day. He is quiet all night in the crate until you get up in the morning. He will howl a little when he gets excited for treats and follow the other dogs' lead. We have 3 dogs and it was a very easy integration. He would love a small to medium sized playmate. My husky is a little big for him to play with, but he will romp in the yard with him.

Overall Lupin is a laid back pup. We take him on daily walks and he enjoys time in the backyard sunning himself and stalking birds and squirrels. He comes when he is called and is very snuggly, but not annoyingly so. He barks when visitors come to our home, but calms down easily. No problems. A perfect fit for my family actually. He follows me around, so sweet. When I leave, he barks a little bit, but my husband tells him to be quiet and he stops. He just wants to be with his people and is an all around great dog."

This sweet boy deserved a family who stayed committed to him, and we know we can do better for Lupin. Apply today!

You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes. If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster and want to learn more, please go to and fill out an application.
