Paddy Needs a Home

About Paddy

Sometimes, SSR offer to help dogs from overseas because we feel that the dogs have a better chance of finding a home here in the UK.

My Name Is… Paddy

I am… Male

My Age… Around 18 months

I come from.. Spain

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? Possibly a female, under assessment

Can I be rehomed with cats? Under Assessment

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessment

I am looking for… A foster or forever home

My arrival date…  At the end of June


Paddy was found as a stray dog in Spain. He is currently at a rescue centre in Spain, but will soon be arriving to the UK.


Paddy was named Pancito in Spain, but we thought since he will be living in the UK he would better suit Paddy as it is more cultured to this country!

We currently know little about him but will update as we find out more and also once he arrives. He is due to arrive with us at the end of June.

We have been told that he is good with female dogs but not so much male dogs.

He is really friendly with people.

He will be further assessed upon arrival.


  • Foster homes must be within an hours drive of Bournemouth
  • Pending assessments, we are looking for a pet free home for Paddy.

Help us find Paddy a home!

Do you have a home for Paddy?

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 £180 adoption fee.

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.
