Buddy has been a well loved dog. Sadly due to unforeseen circumstances, he is looking for a new home through SSR.


Hi, I’m Buddy!

I’m a Staffie cross full of energy! I could walk for miles and I would still be ready for more! I would love to find a home who enjoys walking just as much as me and who can keep me occupied with mental draining activites as I am very smart!

I’m a very friendly boy and I enjoy lots of fuss and attention!

I love being with people so much that I do struggle being alone. I would love a home where someone is around a lot of the time.

I am used to sleeping in my own bed at night.

I don’t get travel sick but I am very wiggly in the car!

I can be strong on lead and I am looking for a little extra training in this area.

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


I am not reactive but I can be over friendly or boisterious with other dogs.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • I can live with kids 6+
  • A pet free home

Help us find Buddy a home!

Do you have a home for Buddy?

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:

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.
