Cleo Needs a Home

About Cleo

My Name Is… Cleo

I Am… Approximately 8 years old – My microchip was not registered when I arrived

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 forever home


Cleo was found as a stray with a very large growth on her under-carriage. Due to this evident neglect, she was surrendered to Staffie and Stray Rescue very quickly so that she could be looked after medically and to find a forever home.


As you can see from the additional photos, Cleo had a large growth on her under carriage which must have been very painful and heavy for her. Upon arrival, she saw our vets and sadly the mass was infected so she had to wait a further week to clear the infection before ungoing surgery.

The surgery was a huge success and Cleo is now in a foster home whilst waiting for her forever home.

Cleo is a very sweet and loving girl who has lots of energy despite the pain she is in. She loves being with people and having lots of fuss!

Help us find Cleo a home!

Do you have a home for Cleo?

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.
