Riley Needs a Home

About Riley

My Name Is… Riley

I Am… Female

I Am… 1 Year Old – DOB 4th July 2019

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? Under Assessment

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes, over 6 years

I am looking for.. A foster or forever home


Riley has been a well loved dog but due to personal circumstances she is looking for a forever home.


Riley is a young female and a typical teenager! She can be quite stubborn and will test boundaries! Despite this, through a lot of patience and hard work, she can be very responsive to training. Riley is very food oriented which helps!

She can be a little nervous of new people at first, but with a little time she soon warms to people.

Riley is used to living with children in the home environment.

She loves being around people all the time and loves being a lapdog!

Riley walks well on the lead but has no recall so cannot be off lead unless in a secure area.

As a foodie, Riley will attempt to steal food at any opportunity, this includes any food that may be accessible when Riley is left home alone. She will sniff out any humans food and will try very hard to reach it! She can be left for short periods of time as long as the home is dog proof with no temptations.

Riley also loves being in the car.


Riley has not yet arrived and will be assessed on arrival, but we believe that she is sociable with other dogs.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • I can be rehomed with children aged 6+
  • A home who can provide me with boundaries and additional training
  • A pet free home pending assessments

Help us find Riley a home!

Do you have a home for Riley?

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.
