Hope Needs a Home

About Hope

My Name is… Hope

I am… 1 Year (Approx.) I was not microchipped when I arrived in rescue

I am…  A  Female

I am…  A Crossbreed

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No, Hope is from the pound and we cannot cat test

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes, Over 12 years

I am looking for… A forever home



Hope was taken in by the pound after being found as a stray. She was found injured on the streets and underweight. We have no idea on her history or where she has come from.



It was clear to us when Hope arrived that she has been neglected and not given the love and care that she needs and deserves. She is a very sweet and loving girl but she is also very nervous. She may require several meetings prior to adoption.

When Hope is comfortable with her surroundings she can be quite an energetic girl!

Hope loves food and will steal food if she is given the chance, this is probably due to her not having frequent access to food in her previous life. She is starting to slowly enjoy her walkies with some encouragement. Once Hope trusts her caregiver, she will follow them everywhere!

She is starting to learn basic commands and her new home must be prepared to put in a lot of work and training with this young girl. She is not yet house trained.

Help us find Hope a home!

Do you have a home for Hope?

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.
