Meryl Needs a Home

About Meryl

Sometimes, Staffie and Stray Rescue offer placements to dogs from oversea’s. We feel that we can offer them a better chance at finding a forever home in the UK.

My Name Is… Meryl

I Am… 5 Years Old

I Am From… Bosnia

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessments

I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Meryl has been used again and again for breeding in Bosnia. She is currently on her way to the UK in search for a loving forever home, one that she so deserves.


We won’t know too much about Meryl until she arrives here in the UK. She will be looking for a a pet free and adult only foster home where assessments can continue to be carried out to determine what sort of forever home she needs.

Meryl loves being in the company of people, but is not dog friendly, because of all that she has been through.


Meryl is reactive towards other dogs and must be kept on lead at all times.


Pending Assessments, I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • An adult only home
  • A home who can confidently and responsibly cope with my reactivity towards other animals.


Please have a read of our requirements to ensure that you are eligible to apply here:

Help us find Meryl a home!

Do you have a home for Meryl?

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.
