My Name Is… Lloyd

I am… 9 Years Old

I am… Staffie

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes, 10 +

I am looking for… A Foster or forever home



Lloyd had previously found himself in kennels and after 2 and half years found his forever home, but unfortunately due heart breaking circumstances Lloyd is looking for a new retirement forever home.



Lloyd  is very much an attention seeker, but what staffie isn’t? He clearly has anxiety issues as well but his personality is amazing ,This little star loves loads of attention.

He adores people especially kids, because they give him the attention he craves.

Lloyd is  on a medicated vet food for his kidney stones, however he does get spoilt and has it mix  in with some of whatever his human is eating. Roast chicken or salmon are his favourites. ( he is a little spoilt  in that sense because he’s a bit fussy now because he will turn his nose up if given dog food.)

He does spend all day with his owner  and he does seem to want constant physical contact, although he’s happy to just lay at your feet. He thinks he’s a lap dog!  but at nearly 20kgs that can be a bit challenging, but he will  lay down he’s quite happy to just lay there all evening with his head on my leg.

He also has joint/cartilage problems in his back legs which the vet has said will only get worse as he gets older. But he will walk and chase his ball quite happily, it’s only when he’s stood still you notice he doesn’t put all his weight on one leg.

Lloyd can be left alone  for up to a few hours. He’s never chewed anything or made a mess in the house. BUT because of his anxiety he gets over excited when I return. It just takes a few minutes to calm him down

He will be a amazing addition to any family who are able to give him the attention he so clearly needs and he has a lot of love to give.



He is generally indifferent to other dogs now but he was initially very hard work to get him socialized with dogs, We think due to him being found as a stray and clearly having to defend himself.

his owner has had no issues with walking him off the lead now and he has even started playing with a couple of dogs.



  • I need a forever home
  • I need a pet free home
  • I need someone who is around most of the time
  • I need someone prepared to give lots of cuddles and attention
  • I need a home with children over 10
  • I need a retirement home


Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.

Help us find Lloyd a home!

Do you have a home for Lloyd?

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.
