Bertie Needs a Home

About Bertie

My Name is… Bertie

I am… 4 Years Old – DOB 18th September 2016

I am…  A Large Male

I am…  A Staffie Cross

Can I be rehomed with dogs? Under Assessments

Can I be rehomed with cats? No, Bertie is from the pound and we cannot cat test

Can I be rehomed with children? Over 12 years

I am looking for… A foster or forever home



Bertie is from the pound and we have no known history on him. He was found as a stray and unclaimed.



Bertie is a very lively and bouncy boy. He knows basic commands such as sit/paw, but he cannot sit for to long as he is just SO excited!

He is  very strong on the lead and it appears that he hasn’t had any real training before. We will be looking for an experienced home who can continue to work with Bertie and show him boundaries.

Please check back for more details on Bertie once he has been assessed by SSR.



In the pound, Bertie has not shown any signs of aggression towards other dogs, but we will continue to assess his behaviour when he arrives.



  • I am looking for a foster or forever home
  • I am looking for a pet free home pending assessments
  • Any children in the home must be 12+
  • I am looking for an experienced home who are prepared to put in the work with me


Please contact the rescue if you are interested via email

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.

Help us find Bertie a home!

Do you have a home for Bertie?

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.
