Ella Needs a Home

About Ella

Sometimes, Staffie and Stray Rescue offer to take in and rehome dogs from overseas as we believe that the dogs have a better chance of finding a forever home here in the UK. Ella is from Spain.

My Name Is… Ella

I Am… 4 Years Old

Can I be rehomed with others dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessments

I am due to arrive in the UK… 9th October

I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Poor Ella has been in kennels in Spain for 2 YEARS! She came in with her puppies, all were rehomed except poor Ella who is still left waiting. In Spain, all Staffordshire bull terriers must be muzzled in public, no matter what their temperament is because it is the law. Because of this, Staffies are much harder to rehome which is why we have offered to take Ella in here in the UK.


Ella absolutely loves getting lots of fuss and cuddles from people. She is really struggling in kennels and will be looking for a foster home as soon as she arrived in the UK.

Please check back soon for more information and updates.


Under Assessments. Ella does not get on with other dogs in the kennels.


Pending Assessments, I am looking for:

  • A pet free home
  • An adult only home
  • A foster or forever home

Help us find Ella a home!

Do you have a home for Ella?

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.
