I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Ozzie has been a well loved dog since he was a puppy. Sadly, due to unforseen circumstances, he is looking for a new home.


Hi. I’m Ozzie!

I’m an exhuberant Staffie with lots of energy!

I would love an active, Staffie experienced home who can provide me with lots of exercise and mental stiumulation.

I love getting all the attention and saying hello to everyone I meet!

I am happy being left for short, reasonable periods of time.

At night time, I am used to sleeping in my crate with the door open.

I have no issues travelling in the car.

I could be described as quite boisterious and would love to find a home who can match my energy.

My favourite toys are tug toys!

Please reach out if you think you could offer me a home!


I am happy walking past other dogs at a safe distance, but I may bark or pull if dogs get too close to me. I am kept on lead as I do not have recall.


I am looking for:

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

Do you have a home for Ozzie?

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.
