Rex Needs a Home

About Rex

My Name Is… Rex

I Am… 1 Year Old – DOB 18th July 2020

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? Possibly with a female dog with a slow introduction

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


Rex was purchased as a puppy during the Coronavirus lockdown. Due to his owners returning back to work for long hours, Rex was really struggling being on his own. He has also recently had Glucoma in his eye which sadly let to his eye being removed. There is risk that he may also lose his second eye.


Rex is an all round great boy who loves to meet everyone who passes by!

He is just a young boy but has been through so much in his life so far. Having just one eye hasn’t fazed him at all, his wound is still in recovery. He is currently recieving medication for his other eye and will require frequent visits to our vets to assess the problem. With glucoma, there is higher risk of getting it in the other eye, however at the moment Rex’s eye is showing no issues.

To give Rex a better chance of finding a forever home, all veterinary costs surrounding Rex’s eye will be covered by the rescue, so please don’t let his health or appearance put you off!

Rex will require basic training but other than this he is an all round great dog and a happy chappie. He walks well on the lead and enjoys a good sniff around. He is quite frightened when he comes across a feather though! He does seem to lack general life experience but has grown in confidence every day. Rex really wants to join in with everything and would love to be a part of a family home.

Rex is fantastic with people and always has his tail wagging, although he probably could be rehomed with slightly younger children, we are looking for a home where children are over 12 years of age as he is currently recovering from his first operation and may require a second. He would like a quieter home whilst he is in recovery.


Rex is sociable with other dogs and non reactive when walking past.


Pending assessments, I am looking for:

  • A pet free home
  • A home where children are over 12 years
  • A home willing to put in extra training with me

Please contact the rescue if you could offer Rex a foster or forever home.

Home checks, vet checks and adoption fees apply.

Help us find Rex a home!

Do you have a home for Rex?

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.
