Comet Needs a Home

About Comet

My Name Is… Comet

I Am… 1 Year Old

I Am… An Old Thyme Bulldog

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessments

I Am looking for… A foster or forever home


Comet was taken in by the police as a result of a welfare issue. We do not know much about Comet’s history, he was taken to kennels where he will shortly be surrendered to SSR in search of a forever home.

Comet has arrived with his brother, Echo, however they will be looking for a home seperately.


Comet can be quite barky when meeting new people for the first time but he is happy to be touched and fussed over once he calms down and gets to know you.

Comet has been described by kennel staff as laid back and dopey! He loves getting lots of fuss and attention. He particularly enjoys a cuddle in the morning before walkies.

Comet loves his food and treats, he isn’t fussy! He knows the commands sit and paw. He also does a trick where he sits like a meerkat whilst waiting for more treats, it’s very cute!

Comet hasn’t been clean in his kennel and we haven’t known Comet in a home environment yet to confirm if he is house trained. Prospective foster/ forever homes must be prepared to put in the training if necessary.

Please check back soon for more information.


Currently under assessments. We believe that Comet will sniff and move on when he passes other dogs however current behaviours could change as he settles.

Comet will bark at livestock.


Pending assessments, I am looking for:

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

Help us find Comet a home!

Do you have a home for Comet?

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.
