Rambo Needs a Home

About Rambo

Sometimes, Staffie and Stray Rescue offer to help dogs oversea’s as we feel that they have increased chances of finding a forever home.

My Name is… Rambo

I am… Approximately 6 years old

I come from… Italy

I am… A large labrador

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats?  No

Can I be rehomed with children? Over 12 years

I am looking for… A foster or forever home




Rambo currently lives in Italy but is waiting to come to the UK. He was rescued from terrible conditions and has been cared for in rescue for many years but has sadly always been overlooked. We are hoping to change this! Rambo has actually been in rescue in Italy for 2 years!



Rambo is a large Labrador. We think he is around 6 years of age and is so deserving of a loving forever home. He’s a lovely, affectionate boy. We are asking for a pet free home with older children for him because he can be protective over his food.

He is OK with other dogs when out and about. He is a strong dog on lead, so the foster/forever home must consider this when applying.

Rambo has had Leishmania in the past but this has been controlled for a few years now by taking 2 tablets a day. He is on medication for life and will require blood tests yearly, which SSR will cover the costs of.

We believe that Rambo has never lived in a house, so will need someone with patents and understanding. Being in a home will be a new experience for him, and he may not be house trained.

We are just waiting for an arrival date to be confirmed.

He will be assessed further when he arrives. Please check back for more information.



  • Rambo is looking for a foster OR forever home – Foster homes MUST be within an hours drive of Bournemouth.
  • A pet free home
  • A home with older children only

Please contact the rescue if you can offer a foster or forever home for Rambo.

Help us find Rambo a home!

Do you have a home for Rambo?

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.
