Buster Needs a Home

About Buster

My Name Is… Buster

I Am… 6 Years Old  – DOB 26/06/2015

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Adult Only

I Am Looking For… A foster or forever home



Buster has recently been residing in police kennels due to a welfare issue. He was at risk of being put to sleep due to the increasing numbers of dogs coming into the kennels and lack of kennel space available. Thankfully, Staffie and Stray Rescue were able to step forward and offer Buster a lifeline.



Buster is a lovely natured boy, a typical smiley Staffie who wants to be with you and wants to please!

He really enjoys his treats and seems to walk reasonably well on the lead.

We sadly have no idea on what he is like in a home setting but he is really struggling in kennels and is in desperate need of a foster home. We feel that he will thrive in a more comfortable environment. Further assessments to be continued in the foster home.

Please reach out if you can help Buster.



Under Assessments.



Pending assessments, I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • An adult only home

Help us find Buster a home!

Do you have a home for Buster?

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.
