Dillon Needs a Home

About Dillon

PLEASE NO ENQUIRIES ABOUT DILLON. HE IS CURRENTLY WORKING WITH OUR BEHAVIOURAL THERAPISTS AND IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION.

My Name is… Dillon

I am… 1 Year old DOB 3rd September 2019

I am.. A Staffie

Can I be rehomed with other dogs?  No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessments – We anticipate an adults only home, Dillon is very anxious and sensitive to loud noises.

I am looking for… A forever home

 

MY HISTORY

Dillon is looking for a new home. He has been a well-loved dog but sadly is not getting on with the other resident dog, so is looking for a new home.

 

ABOUT DILLON

Dillon has just arrived at SSR and assessments are being carried out.

Dillon is a timid dog, he can bark at people when nervous, he is a very loving, loyal and protective dog. He is a very nervous, shy boy and the outside world seems a bit overwhelming for him at the moment. On initial assessments, it looks like a quiet and patient home would be best suited to Dillon.

We will be working alongside our behavioural therapist to help build Dillon’s confidence.

He likes someone to be around most of the time, especially at night when he likes to be close.

 

MY TEMPERAMENT WITH OTHER DOGS

Dillon is dog reactive and will lunge if dogs come too close. He must be kept on lead at all times and we are looking into muzzle training him once he has settled with us and his anxiety eases. He will ideally be walked in areas that are less dog populated.

 

TYPE OF HOME NEEDED

  • I am looking for a pet free home
  • I am looking for someone to continue my training
  • I am looking for someone who is around most of the time
  • I am looking for someone who will let me sleep near

 

Please contact the rescue if you are interested via email staffiesrescue@gmail.com

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.

Help us find Dillon a home!

Do you have a home for Dillon?

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.
