Dudley Needs a Home

About Dudley

My Name Is… Dudley

I Am… 1 Year

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Adult Only

I Am Looking For… A foster or forever home


Dudley was found as a stray and taken to the pound. He wasn’t claimed by anyone so we offered Dudley a space with us to help find him a forever home.


Hi, I’m Dudley!

I’m a small/medium sized Staffie weighing in at 17kg. I can be quite hand shy. I absolutely adore my food and I am always looking at your hands in case you might have something tasty for me!

I was really timid and worried when I first arrived, however I have really come out of my shell and blossomed into a little friendly, cheeky chappy!

I will sit after a bit of convincing but I don’t know any other manners at the moment.

I am looking for a quiet home who can put in the extra training with me.

Can you offer me a foster or forever home? Get in touch today!



Under further assessments. I appear to be fearful of other dogs and do not socialise with them.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home (pending assessments)
  • An adult only home

Help us find Dudley a home!

Do you have a home for Dudley?

We are looking for foster families and adoptive families.

We do ask foster homes to be within an hour’s drive of Bournemouth foster homes will be expected to drive back to our vets in Bournemouth and to meet with prospective new homes.

We rehome to adoptive families within a 2 hour driving radius of Bournemouth. (maximum 2hrs,20 minutes for the perfect applicant willing to travel) Please DO NOT ask if we make exceptions further and look at other rescues covering your area if we do not.

A home check and a vet check is required, with a £250 adoption fee (or £400 for puppy adoption under 1 year), 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.
