Hi, I’m Herbie!

I thought I had found my forever home last year however I am sadly coming back to SSR soon. I will be looking for my 3rd home.

I am looking for a home who can offer me lots of exercise, I am currently used to one long walk and one shorter walk each day. I do also love a good snooze though!

My tummy is a little sensitive so I am currently James Wellbeloved sensitive diet. However any food that looks after a sensitive tummy would be fine for me, like many other dogs! I love my treats and I know basic commands such as sit and paw.

I have been known to be a bit of a thief with a fondness for plastic cartons!

I am an intelligent boy and very loving, a bit boisterous at times, but I am only young! I am told that I have lots of character!

I can be left for short periods of time, but would prefer a home where someone is around most of the time.

Please contact the rescue if you can offer me a foster or forever home!


Herbie is sociable with other dogs and could live with another female dog. Herbie is very bouncy and can be boisterous with other dogs.


I am looking for:

  • I could live with a calm female dog
  • I can live with children over 8 years
  • A forever home
  • A home where someone is around most of the time

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.
