3/26 update: Rupert is an all around wonderful dog.  He is recovering nicely and will be neutered as soon as he’s fully healed.  He is dog, cat, and kid friendly and seems to be housebroken.

If you are interested in adopting, please complete an application on our website. Vet references and a home visit are required. Adoption fee of $300 includes age appropriate vaccinations, deworming, spay or neuter and microchip.

1/19 update:  It’s a little after 9:00 on Tuesday evening and we just got the call that Rupert is finally out of surgery. As he was stable he was the last procedure of the day. He has pins and screws in his pelvis and an FHO was necessary.  He will be resting comfortably at VOSM tonight.  We will post a more detailed update tomorrow but the good news is he did well and now hopefully his healing can truly begin! As for the financials I will have a better idea of our total tomorrow, however I do know this was the more extensive scenario.  For updates or to make a donation, please visit

Original post:  Rupert is an 8 month old black lab mix who recently joined BD&CR from a southern shelter. He is favoring his rear leg after an unfortunate run in with a car and we are raising the funds for his care and surgery. Donations are tax deductible and can be made at
