Diesel Needs a Home

About Diesel

My Name Is… Diesel

I am…  9 Years Old

I am… A Staffie

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 forever home


Diesel has come from a loving home but sadly due to unforeseen circumstances is looking for a new home.


Diesel is one love bug! He is persistent in wanting affection and loves everyone he meets! He likes to bark at visitors until they give him a bit of attention. He will happily enjoy all the fuss and attention quietly once people are paying attention to him.

He is OK attending routine vet visits but only if there are hot-dogs around to keep him distracted!

Diesel doesn’t like to be left alone for too long and his biggest phobia are fireworks.

When out and about, he will pull on this lead but this can be corrected with training.


Diesel is reactive towards other dogs and must be kept on lead at all times.


  • I am looking for a pet free home
  • I am looking for a home where children are at least 12 years of age
  • I am looking for a home where someone is around most of the time

Help us find Diesel a home!

Do you have a home for Diesel?

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 £180 adoption fee.

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.
