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? Yes

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. He was rehomed by us recently but has sadly been returned. He is currently in one of our loving foster homes and waiting for a forever 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 fab walking in the lead, but can be reactive to other dogs. He must be kept on lead at all times and walking in areas that are highly populated with other dogs must be avoided. Diesel should be muzzled if in areas where more dogs are likely to approach him.



  • I am looking for a dog free home, but I could live with a cat
  • 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 £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.
