Luca Needs a Home

About Luca

My Name is… Luca

I am… 7 year’s old

I am… Male

I am a … Staffie

I have come from… A loving home

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Age 10+

I love… Swimming

I am…. Looking for a forever home



Luca is looking for a new home. He has been a well-loved dog but sadly is looking for a new home due to unforeseen circumstances.



Luca is a lovely boy and enjoys nothing more than snuggling up on the sofa. His favourite games are football and frisbee and LOVES to tear up squeaky toys.

Luca does have arthritis in his back legs which he takes medication for, which is managing things and he still enjoys going out for walks, in the summer he loves taking a dip in the paddling pool and enjoys nothing more than a good swim.

Luca is quite an anxious boy around dogs so is muzzled on walks so is best walked in quiet areas.



Luca needs a pet free home, with older children. He would also benefit from an experienced and patient home who can provide support with this anxiety.

Luca is a great character, he will make a wonderful addition to a home looking to adopt.


Please contact the rescue if you are interested via email

Help us find Luca a home!

Do you have a home for Luca?

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 £180 adoption fee.

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.
