Solo Needs a Home

About Solo

My Name is… Solo

I am… 9 Years Old – DOB 1st July 2011

I am…  A  Male

I am…  A Staffie Cross

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes, Over 12 years

I am looking for… A forever home



Solo is from a loving home, but sadly is looking for a new home due to his owner being unwell. He is in one of our loving foster homes awaiting his forever home.


Solo is a super excitable boy and loves to get lots of fuss when he meets new people, he is very friendly. He is a vocal boy and will bark when he excited or anxious. He is very frightened or fireworks and will bark in fear. He also barks when he goes to the vets.

Solo hasn’t lived with children before but he is used to visiting children. Due to his energetic nature, we are looking for a home where children are over 12 years.

He is fine and used to be being left for short, reasonable periods of time.

Solo enjoys his treats and is very gentle and well mannered when receiving treats. He knows basic commands such as sit and paw.

When out on walks, Solo walks with a lead and harness. He pulls a little to start but generally walks really well.

He is not used to travelling in the car.

Solo would prefer a quiet and calm home who can provide him with lots of attention and further training to help set boundaries.

Whilst in his foster home, Solo has recently had a lump removed from his back. Fortunetely, the vet confirm that it was a cyst and nothing nasty. Due to the size of the cyst and its location, poor Solo has been in quite a bit of discomfort but he is recovering well.


Solo’s assessments are continuing. He will respond to other dogs by barking.

Help us find Solo a home!

Do you have a home for Solo?

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.
