Jimmy Needs a Home

About Jimmy

My Name Is… Jimmy

I Am…  8 years old

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Over 12 Years

I am looking for… A forever home


Jimmy was found as a stray and taken to the pound. He was never claimed and was at risk of being put to sleep due to there being no space in rescue centres. Thankfully, just in time, we had a kennel space become available and were able to offer Jimmy a lifeline.


Hi, I’m Jimmy!

I’m a very friendly and affectionate boy, I love to say hello to everyone I meet! I am a larger Staffie size. I am currently in a foster home and awaiting my forever home!

I know the commands sit, paw, high five and roll over! I have clearly been a well loved boy in my previous life.

I walk very well on the lead and love rolling around on the grass.

I really love my treats!

I travel very well in the car with no problems.

I would love to find a home where someone is around most of the time as I prefer not to be left for too long, I love being with my people!



Jimmy can be vocal towards other dogs when passing in close proximity, however is easily distracted with a treat.


I am looking for:

  • A forever home
  • A pet free home
  • A home with kids over 12+

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.
