Hunter Needs a Home

About Hunter

My Name Is… Hunter

I Am… 1 Year Old

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? Under Assessment

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assesment

I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Hunter is looking for a new home through SSR as his current needs are not able to be met. Prior to this, he had a tough start in life as he was locked in small crate and was neglected during a very critical period as a young pup.


Hunter is a young and bouncy boy, he was a lockdown puppy who’s needs were not met from day one. He lacked socialisation with humans and other animals.

He will be looking for a new home who is willing and determined to put in the hard work with Hunter.

Hunter is good with children however we are assessing what sort of home he would be most suited to as he does lack manners and can be very bouncy.

Hunter has experienced a lot of change in his young life so far and sometimes struggles when transitioning to somewhere new. As a result of his lack of stimulation as a puppy, he can be anxious of the world. New owners should be patient in letting Hunter settle into a new home whilst adjusting to new surroundings.

In typical puppy/young dog style, Hunter has plenty of ‘zoomie’ moments and is very excitable and bouncy. He is still in his nipping stage when he gets excited, this is not to be confused with aggression but Hunter will need lots of training going forward.


Under Assessments.


Pending assessments, I am looking for:

  • A pet free foster or forever home
  • An adult only home (prior to full assessments only)
  • A home who is patient and willing to put in the hard work

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.
