Elkie Needs a Home

About Elkie

My Name is… Elkie

I am… Approximately 6+ Years

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Aged 12+

I am looking for… A forever home


Elkie was found tied up all alone. She went to the pound but since becoming unclaimed, SSR offered her a placement. She is now in one of our loving foster homes and awaiting a forever home.


Elkie is a Staffie Cross. She was not microchipped when she arrived but we estimate that she is a more mature dog aged 6+.

Elkie has sadly come in with lots of scabs and scars on her nose.

Elkie has now seen our vet as she walks with a disability.  The vets have assured us that she is not in pain but her disability is something that does need to be monitored. Sometimes she can be a bit wobbly on her feet.

Her foster home have said that she is extremely quiet and calm in the home, she is very laid back and lovable, despite having been found tied up and abandoned before arriving with us.


Elkie is hit or miss with dogs. She only has short walks due to her mobility but can be let off in a quiet area. She will generally keep to herself and not bother other dogs when out walking.


Elkie would suit a quiet and calm family with no other pets in the home.

Please contact the rescue if you can help.

Home checks & Vet checks apply.

Help us find Elkie a home!

Do you have a home for Elkie?

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 £180 adoption fee.

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.
