Amber Needs a Home

About Amber

My Name Is… Amber

I Am… 10 Years Old – DOB 01/01/2012

I Am… An American Bulldog x Douge de Bourdeaux

Weight… 48kg

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Over 12 Years

I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Amber has come from a loving home and has been there her whole life. Due to sad circumstances, she is looking for a new home.


Amber is a very large dog, but a big softy! She LOVES everyone she meets!

She can be a little boisterous when meeting new people entering the home, but this is out of excitement and she soon calms down! She has been known to sit on the laps of workers around the home such as builders, plumbers etc!

Amber loves getting lots of fuss, attention and having cuddles on the sofa! She’s been pampered by her previous family and we want to ensure that she continues to be pampered!

Being a large girl and a slightly older girl, Amber is looking for a retirement home with short walks only. Her legs are getting a little stiff as she gets older and she is on Metacam which helps.

Out on walks, Amber loves the water and paddling in the local river.

Amber travels really well in the car.

We are looking for a home where someone is around most of the time for Amber as she doesn’t like to be left.

She really deserves a happy ever after!


Amber is not always friendly passing other dogs, especially smaller dogs. Most of the time she will walk politely past other dogs. She must be kept on lead at all times.


Pending assessments, I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • An home where children are over 12 years
  • A home experienced with larger breeds
  • A home who can offer me a retirement home

Help us find Amber a home!

Do you have a home for Amber?

We are looking for foster families and adoptive families. We do ask foster homes to be within an hour’s drive of Bournemouth as the dogs in foster use our local vets and foster homes will be required to bring the foster dog back to us for any medical treatments.

We rehome to adoptive families within a 2 hour driving radius of Bournemouth. A home check and a vet check is required, with a £200 adoption fee, which contributes partially to kennel fees, vaccinations, microchipping, spay/neutering, flea/worming treatment and other veterinary costs. This adoption fee will contribute to the care of all our dogs.

We have a thorough rehoming programme to prepare you and your dog for each other. We also offer help and support for you both in the future. Learn about responsible ownership or contact us if you have any questions.

If you are considering fostering or permanently rehoming a dog, then please print off and complete one of the forms below:

Please note: We only rehome within a 2 hour driving radius of the Bournemouth area and do not place dogs in homes with children under the age of 6.
