Lucy Needs a Home

About Lucy

Sometimes, Staffie and Stray Rescue over to help some dogs overseas as we feel that they have an increased chance of finding a forever home.

My name is… Lucy

I am… 5-6 months old

I am from… Italy

My special needs… I walk with a wheelchair

Can I be rehomed with dogs? Yes

Can I be rehomed with cats? Under Assessment

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes

I am looking for… A foster or forever home



Lucy was found at 3 months old as a stray in Italy. When she was found it was discovered that she has an old spinal injury, it is speculated that she was possibly run over by a car. She now walks with a wheelchair.

Due to her injury, Lucy is incontinent. We are looking for a sensitive and loving home who is prepared to potentially adapt their home with ramps etc. to make it easy for Lucy to get around. This will be a challenge Lucy’s new home but also very rewarding!


Lucy is from Italy and currently awaiting to come into the UK, we are expecting her on 7th June.

She is dog friendly and people friendly. She is a loving girl who is very cuddly and affectionate. She loves to run around in her little wheelchair, it has given her a new lease of life!

Lucy does wear a nappy as she is incontinent.


  • I am looking for a foster or forever home – Foster homes MUST be within an hours drive of Bournemouth 
  • I can live with other dogs
  • I can live with children

Please contact the rescue if you can offer a foster or forever home.
