Faith Needs a Home

About Faith

My Name Is… Faith

I Am… 5 Years (Approx.) I was not micorchipped when I was found

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessment

I am looking for… A forever home


Faith was found as a stray and was taken to the pound. She injured when she was found and needed veterinary treatment and staples to help close her wounds. We have no idea on the history of this poor girl, but she has been through a lot and has clearly had a number of litters to.


Faith has clearly been through awful times prior to arriving at SSR, however she is so loving and is enjoying lots of cuddles and affection from the team. Faith loves to snuggle up in blankets and snooze.

Faith has been to our vets and she has a lot of muscle wastage on her legs and has some nerve damage on her right side. She also has burns on her back, We dread to think what she has been through.

Faith has had various blood tests and scans on all her organs to take a look at her health.
Results have detected that Faith has low liver enzymes and is also anemic. She is currently on antibiotics and we are taking each day at a time to assess her recovery. More investigative surgery may be required if there is no improvement. She is quite lethargic but does seem to have a little more energy, we are just taking very small steps.
Faith is in a foster home getting lots of love and cuddles, she loves being with people! Although she is still in rehabilitation, she could potentially move to a forever home who is local to Bournemoth and able to attend the regular vet appointments. She would love a home where someone is around most of the time.

Help us find Faith a home!

Do you have a home for Faith?

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.
