Max Needs a Home

About Max

My Name Is… Max

I am…  5 Years Old

I am… A Staffie

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes, 13+

I am looking for… A foster or forever home



Max has come from a loving home but sadly due to unforeseen circumstances is looking for a new home.



Max is a friendly bouncy staffie who does settle well, and LOVES a good belly rub!

Max  biggest phobia are fireworks and the frying pan, also some loud toys will cause Max to run off and hide for 5 minutes and then come back for a cuddle.

Max does need to wear a muzzle when visiting the vets.



Max, does need further work on the lead, and does pull to start with. He needs to remain on the lead as has very poor recall.

Max does not like to say hello to other dogs when out walking!



  • I am looking for a pet free home
  • I am looking for a home where children are at least 13 years of age
  • I am looking for a home that will continue my training
  • I am looking for a experienced home

Help us find Max a home!

Do you have a home for Max?

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.
