Ludo Needs a Home

About Ludo

My Name Is… Ludo

I Am… 3 Years old

I Am… Male

I Am a … Dog de Bordeaux

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? Possibly with a calm female

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children?  Yes, over 8 years with children who are used to dogs.

I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Ludo has lived in a family home gor his whole life, however due to unforseen circumstances, he is looking for a forever home.


Ludo is a large Dog de Bordeaux who is strong on the lead, but really a gentle giant.

He gets really attached to people and will be a really loving and loyal companion to his new family.

Ludo is currently in kennels but we would love to get him out and into a foster home whilst he waits for his forever home. We would be intereted in hearing from our previously home checked homes, if you are waiting for your forever dog, could you temporarily help Ludo in the meantime?

Ludo could potentially live with a calm female dog, multiple meet and greets would be essential in order for this to happen. We would prefer a home more local to Bournemouth to make this happen and so that the team can be on hand to help settle Ludo in.


Ludo is sociable with other dogs.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • I can be rehomed with children aged 8+ (children must be used to dogs)
  • Preferably a home experienced with larger breeds
  • I can be rehomed with a calm female, must be willing to meet on several occasions

Please have a read on our requirements to adopt to ensure that you are eligible before applying. Application forms can be downloaded from our website and emailed to us at

Home checks, Vet checks & Adoption fees apply.

Help us find Ludo a home!

Do you have a home for Ludo?

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.
