Desi Needs a Home

About Desi

My Name Is… Desi

I Am… Male

I Am… 4 Years Old

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Over 12 Years

I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Desi has come from a well loved home. Sadly due to unforseen circumstances he is looking for a new home through SSR.


Desi loves his walks and has had experience in the past with obedience training and agility which he has enjoyed.

He loves squeaky toys and a game of tug!

Desi loves to snuggle up next to people on the sofa and enjoys getting cosy under covers too! He is used to sleeping either in the kitchen or in the bed with his owner.

Desi is used to being left for short, reasonable periods of time.

He would prefer a quieter household as he get frightened of loud noises and more hectic lifestyles.

Desi has never been around children before so we are looking for a home where children are at least 12 years of age.


Desi can be reactive towards other dogs and will bark towards some dogs. He walks well on the lead in quieter areas where less dogs are around and is never let off the lead.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • A home where children are over 12 years
  • A quiet home environment

Do you have a home for Desi?

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.
