I am looking for… A forever home


Amy was found as a stray and taken to the pound and nobody came forward to claim her. We were able to offer Amy a space. She went into a foster home which sadly didn’t work out, meaning that she had to go back into kennels. Thankfully, another foster came forward for Amy. She is now looking for her forever home.


Hi, I’m Amy!

I have been under the care of Staffie and Stray since December with very little interest! Luckily I am in a very loving foster home, but I would love to find my forever home!

Let me tell you a bit about myself. My best quality is that I am a champion snuggler! I am described by my foster home to be like a teddy bear. I love to be with my people all the time. I will always find a lap or any nook of a person I can find! It helps me to feel safe and secure.

I also absolutely love sleeping in your bed. I am absolutely no trouble at all, I will curl up in the smallest ball and will sleep like a log the whole night through! I don’t even wake up that early! I promise to be the perfect bedtime buddy! I really love my cuddles.

I thoroughly enjoy going out on walks and I have plenty of stamina being out an about. I would enjoy an active family who can take me everywhere. I have travelled for longer periods in the car absolutely fine.

I can get a bit hyperactive sometimes when there is food about, I just love food! Having structured mealtimes have helped me not to get so silly though!

I do struggle being left alone, so I would love a family where someone is around all the time. I will be a little shadow throughout the day. However, I am a lot more settled in the evenings and I am happy chilling on the sofa in front of the TV whilst my foster parents can prepare dinner and do anything that they need to do! I am improving all the time!

Since arriving into the care of SSR, I have had a couple of fits lasting up to 1 minute long. I am confused and disorientated for a short while after. I am now on some medication for epilepsy which aims to stop my seizures.  Since being on the medicaiton, I have only had one seizure which lasted only 20 seconds and was less severe. The vets have recently put me on a higher dose of medication and I am pleased to report no seizures yet which is looking promising!

he rescue can possibly assist financially with this medication for applicants who live locally to our vets to collect medication. I hope this doesn’t put me off as I am a really lovely girl, anyone who meets me will certainly fall in love!

Please do reach out if you can offer me a forever home!


I would prefer a home where I am the only dog.

I haven’t shown any reactive behavour, however I am very exhuberant and exciteable and I need to learn how to approach other dogs calmly.


I am looking for:

  • A forever home
  • A pet free home
  • A home where children are aged 12+

Do you have a home for Amy?

We are looking for foster families and adoptive families.

We do ask foster homes to be within an hour’s drive of Bournemouth foster homes will be expected to drive back to our vets in Bournemouth and to meet with prospective new homes.

We rehome to adoptive families within a 2 hour driving radius of Bournemouth. (maximum 2hrs,20 minutes for the perfect applicant willing to travel) Please DO NOT ask if we make exceptions further and look at other rescues covering your area if we do not.

A home check and a vet check is required, with a £250 adoption fee (or £400 for puppy adoption under 1 year), 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.
