Drake Needs a Home

About Drake

My Name Is… Drake

I Am… 5 Years Old – DOB – 25th May 2016

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessments

I am looking for… A forever home


Drake has come from the pound as a result of a welfare issue.


Poor Drake really deserves a second chance in his later life to be shown the love and care he has missed out on. Prior to arriving at SSR, Drake was left for very long hours alone and walked very little. Due to a lack of training, he gets really overexcited when meeting new people and doesn’t really know how to behave. He will be looking for an experienced dog owner who has the time, patience and care to work with him.

Drake would love a home where someone is around most of the time.

We believe that he probably has never lived with children and given his excitable behaviour when meeting new people, he is most likely looking for an adult only home.

Please check back soon for more information


Under Assessments


Pending Assessments, I am looking for:

  • An adult only home
  • A pet free home
  • An experienced dog owner
  • A home willing to put in extra training

Help us find Drake a home!

Do you have a home for Drake?

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.
