Romeo Needs a Home

About Romeo

My Name Is… Romeo

I am… Approximately 2 years old (I was not microchipped when I arrived)

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with other cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Adult only home

I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Romeo arrived to us on Valentines Day as part of our ‘Valentines 7.’ This was Staffie and Stray Rescue’s biggest rescue mission to date, where 7 dogs were surrendered from a property.

The majority of these poor dogs have never been outside, never been on a lead, never interacted with other dogs except the pack that they were in and haven’t known more than a few humans before arriving at SSR.
Romeo has had a little more life experience compared to some of the other dogs, but he has found being in emergency kennels very stressful (who wouldn’t!) After spending some time decompressing and meeting team SSR, we feel he is ready to be moved into a foster home which will be a more relaxing environment for him.
Romeo is a sensitive soul who is looking for a quiet and patient foster/forever home who can give him lots of love and confidence. He hasn’t been out too much previous to arriving at SSR so the world is quite a scary place for him! He will need some time to get to know his foster/forever home and wouldn’t want to feel too overwhelmed with too much fuss to begin with. Romeo can be won over with some treats!
Once he is settled, Romeo loves to snuggle up on the sofa. He knows basic commands and will enjoy being the centre of someone’s world.
Please check back soon for more information.
Romeo is still continuing assessments as he has not long been with us. He will walk past dogs OK but can be a bit grumbly. Romeo will need to be kept on lead at all times.
Please check back soon for more information.
I am looking for:
  • A foster or forever home
  • An adult only home
  • A patient and understanding home

Help us find Romeo a home!

Do you have a home for Romeo?

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.
