Bentley was found as a stray and taken to the pound. He was never claimed, to he has arrived at SSR in search of a forever home.


Hi, I’m Bentley!

I am a small/medium sized dog, you could call me a crossbreed, but the team think I have a bit of Staffie and a bit of Spaniel in me!

I absolutely love my walks and I would love to find an active family home who can provide me with lots of exercise and activities to keep me occupied. I might enjoy agility or cani-cross.

I’m not a fan of travelling in the car so I would prefer not to have a lifestyle where I’m in a vehicle a lot of the time. I’m very noisy and unsettled!

I can get a little stressed and overwhelmed sometimes, I would love a patient and loving home to call my own!

Please contact the rescue if you can offer me a foster or forever home – Email


Under further assessments, Bentley will walk politely past other dogs.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • I can live with kids 12+

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.
