Mia Needs a Home

About Mia

My Name Is… Mia

I am… 5 Years Old (DOB 10th March 2015)

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Over 12 Years

I am looking for… A forever home



Mia has come from a loving home but due to personal circumstances, she was surrendered to Staffie and Stray Rescue. She is now in one of our loving foster homes awaiting her forever home.


Mia is a really loving girl who loves to be around people. She enjoys soaking up all the attention and meeting new people. Although she has no issues with children and enjoys greeting them on walks, she has never lived with children before, so we are asking for applicants to apply who are slightly older children only.

Mia knows many commands such as Sit, lay down, watch, turn, high five, touch and fist pump! She can also walk underneath your legs on command! Mia used to attend agility training with her previous owner, it is something she really enjoyed. She is an active girl and would benefit from an active home who can continue basic training with her and teach her some additional boundaries too.

Mia enjoys some fuss and attention but doesn’t enjoy her paws being touched.

She is also a fussy eater so a little time and patience will be required working out a suitable diet for her.

Mia doesn’t like loud noises such as fireworks.

Mia regularly gets ear infections and will occasionally need steroid drops from the vets.



Mia is very vocal and reactive towards other dogs. She will need to be kept on lead at all times and preferably in less dog populated areas. We will be working alongside our behavioural therapist to assist with this and she is currently being muzzle trained.

Help us find Mia a home!

Do you have a home for Mia?

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.
