Caramel Needs a Home

About Caramel

My Name Is… Caramel

I Am…3 Years Old

I Am… A Bull Lurcher

Can I be rehomed with other dogs… Yes

Can I be rehomed with cats… No

Can I be rehomed with children… Over 12 Years

I am looking for… A forever home


Caramel was found as a stray and brought to us via the council. When she was found, it was clear that she had been attacked by another dog as she had bite marks all over the face, neck and body. One of the wounds inside her mouth caused her face to swell. Luckily, with medication, this is now well on its way to healing!


Hi, I’m Caramel!

I’ve had a tough life, you can tell by my battle wounds! However, I can assure you that I am just the sweetest girl who loves to give kisses!

I am currently mastering my sit and paw, I can half-sit at the moment, with treats I am getting there with my training!

I have recently learnt how to play with toys and I am loving them! I like to drag out my bed and toys into the garden to play with, finished by a sunbathe when the sun is out!

I am very gently and loving by nature. I am happy to sit with you calmly out on walks and watch the world go by. I also walk beautifully on the lead.

I travel really well too in the car!

I am currently in a lovely foster home, awaiting my forever home.

Reach out to my rescue if you think you can offer me a forever home!


Dog Friendly


I am looking for:

  • A forever home
  • I can live with kids over 12 years
  • I can live with other dogs (multiple meet and greets required)

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.
