I am looking for… A foster or forever home


Ruby has been a well loved dog. Sadly due to unforeseen circumstances, she is looking for a new home through SSR.


Hi, I’m Ruby!

I’m a very friendly, energetic and affectionate girl who will be sure to greet you with the waggiest tail and lots of kisses! I am a Doberman cross Saluki so I am on the taller side!

I’m am happy being left for reasonable periods of time and am crate trained.

I am very food oriented and will do just about anything for a treat but I will take them very gently from you!

I know basic commands such a sit and paw.

I have some anxieties that mean I will require a patient and understanding owner to help me work through my fears of cars and bikes. I get very nervous when travelling.

Please reach out to the rescue if you can offer me a foster or forever home!


I am comfortable walking in close proximity to other dogs but would prefer being an only dog in the home due to my lively and boisterous nature.


I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • I can live with kids aged 12+

Do you have a home for Ruby?

We are looking for foster families and adoptive families.

We do ask foster homes to be within an hour’s drive of Bournemouth foster homes will be expected to drive back to our vets in Bournemouth and to meet with prospective new homes.

We rehome to adoptive families within a 2 hour driving radius of Bournemouth. (maximum 2hrs,20 minutes for the perfect applicant willing to travel) Please DO NOT ask if we make exceptions further and look at other rescues covering your area if we do not.

A home check and a vet check is required, with a £250 adoption fee (or £400 for puppy adoption under 1 year), 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:
