Baloo Needs a Home

About Baloo

Baloo is currently being rehabilitated in a foster home. He is not yet available for rehoming.

My Name Is… Baloo

I am… 4 Years Old

I am looking for… A home experienced with dog

I Need… Additional time, training and support

I Love… Cuddles and Attention

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can  I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Over 10 years


Baloo is looking for a new home. He enjoys being out and about for walks but equally wouldn’t pass up a lazy day for snuggles and cuddles! He is very much like a big baby who craves lots of cuddles and attention.

Baloo is a highly stimulated dog who is looking for someone who can provide him with lots of stimulation tasks and training. He loves to learn new tricks and is a quick learner. He can be left for short, reasonable periods of time.

Baloo loves is own company and would benefit from having an area in the home that is his own space. New owners must respect this. Day to day Baloo can be quite an anxious dog. He is currently working alongside a behaviourist to help to work through some issues.

He has skin allergies which are controlled by antihistamines daily. He is currently on the raw food diet which is the best way to control any skin flare ups. Human foods should be avoided completely.

Baloo is a chewer which is controlled by having lots of dog chew toys around the house.

A note from Baloo’s Foster Mum:

Baloo just likes sleeping!!! A walk twice a day. He loves playing with his ball, Well behaved, But dont ring the door bell!!! He likes attention but at night time likes to chill on his on After 7, 9.30 he takes to his bed and won’t move!! Ha ha xxx


Baloo is looking for an experienced dog owner who can continue to work through his anxiety. He needs to be the only pet in the home with older children.

Please contact the rescue if you feel you can offer Baloo a home.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.
