Bliss Needs a Home

About Bliss

My Name Is… Bliss

I Am… Age currently unknown, TBC

I Am… A German Shepherd

Can I be rehomed with children? Adult only pending assessments

Can I be rehomed with cats? No, we cannot cat test

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No, pending assessments

I am looking for… A foster or forever home



Bliss was found as a stray and taken to the pound. She is in a bit of a sorry state and has really struggled being in kennels. She will soon be making her way to SSR. We have no history on Bliss, where she has come from or what she has been through.


Bliss is new in and will be making her way to SSR shortly. We are looking for a pet free and adult only foster home to start with where assessments can be carried out to determine what sort of home she might be looking for. We would love to hear from our previously home checked applicants who may be waiting for their forever dog, but could help out a dog in need temporarily in the meantime. Ideally we are looking for an experienced dog owner who could cope with any behaviours that arise in the home, such as seperation anxiety.

Please check back soon for more information.


Pending assessments, I am looking for:

  • A pet free foster or forever home
  • An adult only home
  • An experienced dog owner

Please have a read of our requirements to be eligible to apply and download an applicaiton form which can be completed and returned to if you would like to offer Bliss a foster or forever home.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.

Help us find Bliss a home!

Do you have a home for Bliss?

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.
