Herbie Needs a Home

About Herbie

My Name Is… Herbert

I Am… 18 Months

I Am… A Crossbreed

I Am… 28kg approx.

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? Possibly with a calm female

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Over 8 Years

I Am Looking For… A foster or forever home


Herbert came though our doors 6 months ago and was rehomed. He is sadly being returned due to him having separation anxiety. This poor young boy really deserves a happy ever after.


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 currently used to having an hours walk in the morning before breakfast and an hours walk in late afternoon before my dinner. I am looking for a home who can provide me with lots of exercise.

My tummy is a little sensitive so I am currently on a dried fish based diet which seems to work best for me. I am reasonably food orientated and I know basic commands such as sit and paw.

I do get worried when I am left on my own so I am looking for a home where someone is around all the time. I am am left to long I struggle to settle and I will be destructive and can open doors quite easily. I have tried using a crate but will break out as soon as I am left.

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.


I am looking for:

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

We rehome to adoptive families within a 2 hour driving radius of Bournemouth. (maximum 2hrs,20 minutes for the perfect applicant willing to travel) Please DO NOT ask if we make exceptions further and look at other rescues covering your area if we do not.

A home check and a vet check is required, with a £250 adoption fee (or £400 for puppy adoption under 1 year), 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.
