I am looking for… A forever home


Diesels owner passed away a few years back and has since been passed around. He was recently found as a stray but his care giver didn’t come to pick him up. He is now under the care of SSR and looking for a  forever home!


Hi, I’m Diesel! I’m a handsome Staffie small-medium in size. I have been in rescue since October 2023 and I have had very little interest, so here’s all about me…

I had a really tough time in kennels, I was really sad and stressed until an amazing foster home came forward to bring me home! I am absolutely loving home life and love to lay in any sun puddles I can find!

I love my food and treats, sometimes I will bark at you to give me a treat or at mealtimes, I can’t help it I’m hungry! Generally around the home I am a laid back and chilled dog.

Having affection and a feeling of security is important to me, I will lean into you so that I feel safe.

I am very playful and my favourite toys are the tug toys, I love to rip up and shred toys too!

I travel fine in the car.

I do have anxieties when I am out on walks, which I am currently in training, It appears that I haven’t been socialised much before and the outside world can be a bit scary for me.

Please reach out if you can help me by offering me a forever home.


I find the outside world quite scary. I am muzzle trained and wouldn’t wish to socialise with other dogs. I would suit a home who can look past this and see me for the amazing dog that I am. I will need to be kept on lead unless I am in a private and secure area. I am happy with quiet road walks and I have learned to walk quite well on the lead which makes for pleasant walking!


  • A forever home
  • A pet free home
  • I can live with children 12+ years

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.
