Hunter Needs a Home

About Hunter

My Name Is… Hunter

I am…  9 Months old

I am… A Staffie cross

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? Under Assessment

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes, 10+ and over

I am looking for… A foster or forever home



Hunter was originally rescued as a very young puppy, being kept in a small crate in his own waste.  He was taken in my a loving family who didn’t want to see him suffer like this. It was only a temporary solution so he is now coming to rescue to find his forever home.



Hunter is still a young dog, he is playful and full of energy. He will need someone who is willing to continue with his training and socialisation. He was born during lockdown and has had very little contact and stimulation from humans and the outside world. He is anxious when out on walks and in areas unknown to him.

Because of little interaction with people in his puppy stages, he is very excitable upon meeting new people!

He is currently fed on the raw diet which has been good for him.

He will require a patient home who can help him settle into his new surroundings.

Hunter is quite a nervous boy, and becomes anxious when left on his own, so would benefit from someone who could be around most if the time.

He is an all round loving boy and will make the best companion with some love and additional training.


Hunter is not yet with Staffie and Stray Rescue, on arrival we will complete assessments so check back for updates….



I am looking for:

  • An home with children 10+
  • A home where someone is around most of the time
  • A home who is willing to put the extra work in with me
  • I am looking for a pet free home pending assessments

Help us find Hunter a home!

Do you have a home for Hunter?

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.
