Paddy Needs a Home

About Paddy

My Name Is… Paddy

I Am… Approximately 3 years old

I Am… A Presa Canario

I Am… Approximately 50kgs

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Adult Only

I Am Looking For… A foster or forever home


Paddy was taken to the pound and put under ownership of the council as a result of a welfare case. He has now been surrendered to SSR where he can finally find a safe and loving home.


Paddy is a nervous boy who can be unsure and un-trusting of new people to begin with. With some patience and treats in hand, he soon comes out of his shell!

He is very strong on lead and will be undergoing further training which is to be continued in the home.

Paddy travels very well in the car.

He will be looking for a home experienced with large breeds.


Under Assessments.


Pending assessments, I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • An adult only home

  • A home experienced with larger breeds

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 £200 adoption fee, 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.
