Bracken Needs a Home

About Bracken

Bracken isn’t with Staffie and Stray Rescue, he is with Waggy Tails Rescue. We are helping him to find his forever home. Please contact Waggy Tails Rescue if you would like to offer Bracken a home:

01202 875000


Bracken is a lovable 7 year old American bull dog cross. Unfortunately we do not know his history as he came from the pound but he is playful, cheeky and loves his belly rubbed and a good scratch from his human companion.

Bracken loves meeting people and will always enjoy a fuss.  Because of his size and unknown history we would recommend an adult only home or a home where children are older.

Bracken will walk with most dogs and will play with other dogs too, however, he is full on so it would need to be a strong tolerant dog and we think he would be better in a home of his own.

Although Bracken is a big strong dog he takes treats  and food very nicely.

Bracken can walk really well when there are no distractions but would benefit from ongoing training.

We are looking for a special home for him with someone who is used to strong, large breeds and can help him reach his potential.


  • Dogs must not be left more than 4 hours a day
  • Households cannot have children under 6 years old
  • You must live within East Dorset or West Hampshire (BH and SO40-45 postcodes)
  • You must have a secure rear garden

Please contact Waggy Tails Rescue to learn more about Bracken and how to apply to adopt.

Help us find Bracken a home!

Do you have a home for Bracken?

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.
