Kobi Needs a Home

About Kobi

My Name Is… Kobi

I am… 2 Years Old

I am…. From the Pound

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

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

Can I be rehomed with children? No, adult only home

I am looking for… A foster or forever home



We received a call  from a vets 100’s of miles away to ask for help with a dog. Poor Kobi had been brought in to be put to sleep. The reason was that he had growled at a cupboard door slamming. Prior to that he had  been purchased off Gumtree just a week previous.

A frantic plea was put out to our volunteers who help with transport and within 2 hours of initial contact he was on the road to the safety of SSR.



Kobi his a small boy, who is insecure and shy when meeting new people. Kobi will need to meet with someone on several occasions, to allow him to get to know you and feel safe.

Kobi loves his walks and has good basic training, although still being a young boy he will require this training to continue.

Several meetings will be required with Kobi for any prospective adopters and we are looking for a breed experienced home.

Help us find Kobi a home!

Do you have a home for Kobi?

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.
