Johnnie Needs a Home

About Johnnie

My Name Is… Johnnie

I Am… 3 Years Old

I Am..  An American Bulldog

Can I be rehomed with children? Provisonally yes, over 6 years, Johnnie has not arrived with us yet and will be undergoing assessments. We will be looking for a home with older children initially.

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

I am looking for… A foster or forever home



Johnnie has lived in a typical family home, but he is sadly not getting the time and attention that he needs.


Johnnie is new in and is currently on his way to SSR. Further information will be updated on the website shortly.

He is a large American Bulldog who is very strong on the lead. He hasn’t been socialised with other dogs and will need a home who is willing to put in extra training with him.

He loves people and has lived with children before. Initally we will be looking for a foster home for Johnnie where children are aged 12+ where assessments can be carried out.


Johnnie will be assessed once he arrives. He hasn’t been socialised much but we believe he will walk politely past some dogs.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • A home with other children (over 12 years) to being with pending assessments
  • A home who is willing to put in training with Johnnie

Help us find Johnnie a home!

Do you have a home for Johnnie?

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.
