Benny Needs a Home

About Benny

My Name Is… Benny

I Am… 7 Years Old

I Am… Approximately 50kgs

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessments

I Am Looking For… A foster or forever home


Benny was taken to the pound by the police after he was witnessed being cruelly treats in the street. Further investigation suggests that poor Benny has been in around 6/7 homes in his life so far. He has now arrived at SSR in search of finding his happy ever after that he deserves after being let down so many times by humans.


Benny is a calm, gentle giant who is great with people. He travels really well in the car and is happy to lie down during journeys.

It is so sad to see that when he hears loud noises or voices, he will sit the corner and put his head down as if he is waiting to be abused again. We feel that he would benefit a quieter and calm household to help him settle better and eventually gain trust in people again.

You couldn’t meet a more deserving sweetheart who will give a lot back in return.

Please get in touch if you can offer Benny a loving foster or forever home.


Under Assessments.


Pending assessments, I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • An adult only home
  • A quiet and patient home

Help us find Benny a home!

Do you have a home for Benny?

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.
