I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Missy has already been in a few homes in her young life so far. She is looking for a secure forever home who can understand her needs and put in the necessary time and effort.


Hi, I’m Missy!

I’m an exuberant young lady looking for a dog experienced home. I am so loving and affectionate. I love nothing more than snuggling up on the sofa with you.

I love my toys and treats too! I will sit for treats and take them ever so gently.

I am fine being left for short, reasonable periods of time and I travel very well in the car.

At night time I am used to sleeping on my owners bed.

I enjoy long walks and would benefit from mental enrichment too.

I come with limited history, but I have been fine with visiting grandchildren and older visitors too.

I would love a foster or forever home as soon as possible, please reach out to the rescue if you can help!


I am not social with other dogs and I am looking for a dog experienced home to work with me. Initially I would prefer to walk in quieter areas.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • I can live with kids 12+
  • A dog experienced home

Do you have a home for Missy?

We are looking for foster families and adoptive families.

We do ask foster homes to be within an hour’s drive of Bournemouth foster homes will be expected to drive back to our vets in Bournemouth and to meet with prospective new homes.

We rehome to adoptive families within a 2 hour driving radius of Bournemouth. (maximum 2hrs,20 minutes for the perfect applicant willing to travel) Please DO NOT ask if we make exceptions further and look at other rescues covering your area if we do not.

A home check and a vet check is required, with a £250 adoption fee (or £400 for puppy adoption under 1 year), 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.
