Ellie Needs a Home

About Ellie

My Name Is… Ellie

I Am… 8 Years Old

I Am… English bull terrier x Jack Russell

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? Under Assessment

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessment

I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Ellie’s owner sadly passed away, when she arrived for an assessment, she was in quite a sorry state. She was seen by our vet right away and she now has medication for her skin. The family very generously contributed to her future care and we thank them for coming to us for assistance.


Ellie will begin her recouperation and then we can assess her going forward for the kind of home she will require.

She is currently on a lot of medication and medicated baths which she may require going forward in her foster/forever home.

Ellie is a very sweet and loving girl, she has been so brave at the vets and during her medicated baths which must sting at the moment. As every day goes past she is slowly improving. We can’t wait to watch her progress!

Please check back soon for more information.

Help us find Ellie a home!

Do you have a home for Ellie?

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.
