I Am Looking For… A forever home


Due to unforessen circumstances, Herbert is looking for a new home through SSR.


Herbert is a large young male Crossbreed looking for a new home.

He is looking for a home who can provide him with plenty of further training and exercise. He gets very lively, excitable and boisterous upon meeting new people and wants to be everyone’s best friend!

Herbert loves being in the company of people and would like to find a home where someone is around most of the time.

He is used to sleeping on his owners beds, but has also previously slept downstairs.

Herbert isn’t particularly food oriented but knows the commands sit and paw for a treat.

Being a young dog in need of further guidance, he does still display typical puppy behaviours such as mouthing and pulling at shoelaces! He is a well balanced dog who will be a fantastic companion with the right work and training put in.

Herbert loves a game of chase with his ball!

He will be looking for a home where new owners are physically able to handle him on lead as he is a strong boy in need of additional lead training. Homes experienced in owning large breeds would be beneficial.


Further assessments are continuing, but Herbert is believed to be sociable with other dogs. He has previously been to weekly puppy socialization classes and has played with all types and breeds of dogs.


Pending assessments, I am looking for:

  • A pet free home
  • An adult only home
  • A forever home
  • A home where someone is around most of the time

Help us find Herbert a home!

Do you have a home for Herbert?

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.
