Dempsey Needs a Home

About Dempsey


8 Year old Dempsey is looking for a foster or forever home.

He is a big boy and would benefit from a home who is used to larger breeds. He would benefit from an adult home or with children aged 10+.

Dempsey’s owner has sadly passed away and he is currently being looked after by a friend who has been in touch with SSR to find this poor boy a new home.

Dempsey is a super friendly dog who is a little excitable! He is a happy chappie who is always smiling! He could do with a touch more training. Dempsey is used to being at home with someone most of the time so would prefer to be left for short periods.

He is keen to learn and is motivated by food or treats!

He hasn’t lived with other dogs so we don’t know what he is like around them, but he doesn’t seem to bark at them when out on a walk. He would be best as the only dog in the home.

Please contact the rescue if you are interested.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.
