Bruce Needs a Home

About Bruce

My Name Is… Bruce

I Am… 9 Years Old

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? Possibly with a calm female dog

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessments

I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Due to unforeseen circumstances, Bruce is looking for a new home. He has been passed around a lot in his life.


Hi, I’m Bruce!

I am 9 years old and in search of a happy ever after. I have sadly been passed around a lot in life and I also had a poor start to life initially. I have now found myself in rescue, but I am confident the rescue will find me the home I deserve!

I am an all round good boy, very friendly and loving.

I have lived with children but in very hectic homes,  I would prefer a quieter household in my next home where I can get all the fuss and attention.

Please contact the rescue if you would like to offer me a foster or forever home.


Under assessments, but it is believed that Bruce is sociable with other dogs and could live with a female.


I am looking for…

  • A foster or forever home
  • An adult only home or a home with older children in a calm household
  • I could live with another female dog

Please ensure that you are eligible to apply and live within our rehoming areas before enquiring. Application forms can be downloaded off our website and sent back to STAFFIESRESCUE@GMAIL.COM

We are looking for foster families and adoptive families.

We do ask foster homes to be within an hour’s drive of Bournemouth foster homes will be expected to drive back to our vets in Bournemouth and to meet with prospective new homes.

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.

If you are considering fostering or permanently rehoming a dog, then please print off and complete one of the forms below:
