Buddy 2 Needs a Home

About Buddy 2

My Name Is… Buddy

I Am…  8 Years Old

Can I be rehomed with other dogs… No

Can I be rehomed with cats… No

Can I be rehomed with children… Over 12 years

I am looking for… A foster or forever home


I have been a well loved dog, but unforeseen circumstances mean that I am now looking for a new home.


Hi, I’m Buddy!

I’m a Staffie who has a lot of energy for my age! I am really friendly and loving, but like a typical Staffie very exhuberant!

I love being on grass and I love to “stop drop and roll” at any opportunity!

I like being around water and I have been known to lay in puddles!

I love to play with balls but will rarely give them back to you! I will need a good trade offer if you want me to let go to catch it again!

I am in need of loosing a little bit of weight and I get on well with a grain free diet.

I know basic commands such as sit and paw.

I am struggling in kennels and I would love for someone to help me!

Please reach out to the team if you can offer me a foster or forever home!


I am typically non-reactive but I get anxious if off lead dogs run up to my face as I have been attacked by dogs in the past.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • I can live with kids 12+

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:
