Diesel and Lolly were found as strays on the street and taken to the pound. Having not been claimed, they were surrendered to Staffie and Stray Rescue. Prior knowledge from the pound has suggested that these poor dogs have been passed from pillar to post previously have been used as a breeding pair.


Diesel and Lolly are a very bonded pair, they get anxious if they are out of each others sight. We have found that even getting them out of the vehicle seperately can cause great panic.

Diesel is a Staffie and Lolly is a Staffie Cross. They are smaller dogs. Both are struggling in kennels and would love to find themselves in the comfort of a  home.

It is clear that neither dogs have had any training, they are unable to offer basic commands at the moment such as sit and paw.

Diesel is the quieter and more needy of the two, whereas Dolly is more confident and happy doing her own thing!

Both dogs love people, are very sweet natured can be left for short, reasonable periods of time.

Assessments are still being carried out. Please check back soon for more information.


Assessments are continuing.

Lolly is very dog reactive whereas Diesel is OK with other dogs.


Pending assessments, we are looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • An adult only home

Help us find Diesel & Lolly a home!

Do you have a home for Diesel & Lolly?

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.
