Ocean is  currently living with his owner. He is a well loved dog. Unfortunetely due to unforeseen circumstances he is looking for a new home. Ideally we are looking for a foster home to get Ocean into our care as he is out of area so that he can move forward and find his forever home with us.


Hi. I’m Ocean! Pleased to meet you!

I’m an exhuberant and exciteable Staffie! I love to meet new people!

I have been a well loved dog since a puppy, I am looking for a home who can continue to love me the way I currently am.

I am crate trained and happy to be left for short, reasonable periods of time.

I don’t currently live with children. Due to my high energy I would be best placed with any children in my new home over 12 years.

My ideal home would be a home who can provide me with lots of exercise and mental stimulation. I love playing with toys!

I love travelling in the car!

I love having lots of fuss and I will roll over for belly tickles! I will sit and paw for treats!

Currently I walk with a head collar which helps me to walk better on the lead. I really enjoy my walks!

Please reach out if you can offer me a foster home!


I will ignore other dogs  when they are on lead. If I am approached by off lead dogs I feel uneasy.

I have had mixed experiences with other dogs. I have been attacked a few times in the past. I have been able to have some dog friends but I am not super social and any interactions will take time and training, as awell as an understanding from my new family that I may not always take a liking to every dog I come across.

I am not let off lead as I don’t have any recall.


I am looking for:

  • A foster home
  • A pet free home
  • A home where children are over 12 years
  • Preferable experience with bull breeds

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.
