My husband and I got married September 30, 2017. We had a deal that after the wedding we would start looking for a rescue dog to join our family. As most of you can probably agree, wedding planning is a little stressful, so we wanted to wait to bring a pup into our home until all of the wedding fun was over!
It was on our honeymoon, sitting in a cute cafe in San Francisco, that I was scrolling through Petfinder and saw the photo of Rupert. His name was Lupert (which we were like that has to be a typo...right?!) We filled out the application right there and had an interview set up with the rescue organization for when we got home! We were nervous for our interview, but after meeting with the rescue we really felt ready to have a dog in our life.
Rupert was rescued from an over-breeding situation in Alabama. When we saw his photo on Petfinder he was already in a foster home in Alabama. He was scheduled for transport at the end of October. The day he arrived in Wisconsin was the day we were able to meet him and possibly bring him home. You might have guessed, it was love at first sight and he came home with us that day!
