Poppy Needs a Home

About Poppy

My Name is… Poppy

I am… 9 Years old

I come from… A loving home

I am…  A Staffie Cross

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes, 8 and over

I am looking for… A foster or forever home



Poppy has come from a loving home but due to unforeseen circumstances she is looking for a new home


Poppy is a very sweet girl loves people and attention.
Poppy is reactive to cats in the garden, she has lots of energy. Poppy can pull a little on the lead but is so excited to be out and about.
She is currently in one of our loving foster homes and awaiting a forever home.


Poppy does bark when other dogs walk past and she is reactive so she could bite another dog if given the chance. The foster home is currently walking her in areas where no other dogs are around.  Poppy would need to wear a muzzle in areas where there are other dogs off lead, although we are still in the process of muzzle training with her as she is not used to it.

  • I am happy to live with children 8+

Help us find Poppy a home!

Do you have a home for Poppy?

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.
