I Am Looking For… A foster or forever home


Due to unforseen circumstances, Nova is looking for a new home through SSR.


Hi, I’m Nova!

Could you be my new family?

I have lived in the same family home my whole life however I am sadly not getting the time and input that I need.

I love being around people and I am an extremely affectionate dog! I will always be loyal to you!

I am fully house trained and I love to play with toys and balls! I am used to having free run of the house and tend to chill out and sleep wherever I feel comfortable. I will sleep on my owners bed but I tend to move about a bit in the night and sleep in different places.

I would love to be the centre of someone’s world where I can get lots of fuss and attention. I’m very friendly and calm.

I’m a real foodie and I’m definitely not fussy with what I eat!

I know the commands sit and paw. I will take treats gently too.

When you arrive home, I will bring you socks, toys, shoes, anything I find as a little gift to say ‘WELCOME HOME!’

Please contact the rescue team if you are interested in me, they will assist you in rehoming me!


Nova is not social with other dogs. She walks beautifully on the lead but will need to be kept on lead at all times.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • An adult only home

Do you have a home for Nova?

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:
