Dolly Needs a Home

About Dolly

My Name is… Dolly

I am… Around 8 years of age

My nickname is… Dolly Dumpling

My History… I came in from the pound as a stray

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes, over 10 years


Dolly came in from the pound after she was picked up as a stray with no microchip. We originally place her in a foster home with another older, 14 year old dog as we didn’t want her to have to go into kennels. Sadly, this didn’t work out and it appears that she would much prefer to be the only dog in the home. She is now looking for a foster/forever home.

She is a traditional looking Staffie and a girl who knows exactly what she wants! She is good on the lead and will walk politely past other dogs when out and about. In the home you wouldn’t know she is there unless she hears the rustle of a treat! She is gentle when taking food.

Dolly is one very sweet ,calm girl who would love a sofa a to call her own.


Dolly is looking for a pet free home. If applicants have children we would like them to be aged 10 or over so Dolly can live a chilled lifestyle.

Please contact the rescue if you are interested.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.
