Dot Needs a Home

About Dot

My Name Is… Dot

I Am… 3 Years Old

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Over 12 years

I am looking for… A  forever home


Dot was found tied to a bench after having puppies. The poor pups were no where to be found and Dot was understandably distressed and heartbroken, we have no idea what she has been though.
She was originally taken to the RSPCA, but Dot really suffered in kennels, so the RSPCA reached out to our team in the hope that Dot could find foster placement instead.
We are pleased to say that we managed to source a foster home and Dot is finally in a warm, comfortable home and being shown so much love.


Dot is just a small Staffie but with a huge heart! She is a very friendly girl, craving love and attention.

Dot loves to give lots of kisses and she loves everyone she meets.

She appears to have had little to no training prior to arriving with us and we are not sure if she is used to being out on walks. She will be looking for a home who can put in the time, effort and patience to help her settle.

We have found that Dot becomes attached quite quickly to people and she would love a home where someone is around most of the time.


Dot is dog reactive and will need to be kept on lead at all times.


I am looking for:

  • A forever home
  • A pet free home
  • A home where children are over 12 years

Help us find Dot a home!

Do you have a home for Dot?

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.
