Bison Needs a Home

About Bison

My Name Is… Bison

I Am… 5 years old – DOB 19th August 2015

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No, we cannot cat test dogs who are from the pound

Can I be rehomed with children? Over 12 years

I am looking for… A forever home



Bison has come from the pound after being found as a stray. We have limited information on his history.



Bison is your typical happy friendly Staffie, vocal, loves everyone and is a pocket rocket.

Bison is used to having free run of the house in his foster home but is more than happy sleeping downstairs (as long as he is snuggled up in a blanket!)

When out and about on walks he is very strong on the lead, but he loves to say hello to everyone he meets with his lovely Staffie smile. His foster home find that he will pull on the lead for about half of the walk, but once he has got a lot of his excitement out he will settle.

Bison knows the command although isn’t always forthcoming with this! However, he is so eager to please and be with people.

He can be left for short, reasonable periods of time.

Bison’s favourite thing to do is look outside the window and watch the world go by. He will jump on chairs or anything to get access to a window view!



Assessments are still continuing as Bison has not long been in foster. He is very exciteable when he see’s another dog and can be quite vocal. He doesn’t seem to show any signs of reactive behaviours..



I am looking for…

  • A forever home
  • A pet free home
  • A home where children are over 12 years


Please have a read through on the following link to see how we are working and the current restrictions that we have in place for applicants.

Please contact the rescue if you can offer Bison forever home.

Help us find Bison a home!

Do you have a home for Bison?

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.
