Spot Needs a Home

About Spot

My Name Is… Spot

I Am… A Staffie Cross

I Am… 7 Years Old – Approximately – I was not microchipped when I arrived

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessment

I am looking for… A foster or forever home



Spot has been in one home since he was a puppy but he has arrived at SSR as his needs were not being met. We believe he has spent a lot of time in the garden.


Spot has just arrived and assessments are continuing.

He is a nervous boy and appears to be very hand shy. He will be looking for a quiet and patient home, new owners may be required to meet Spot several times before rehoming so that he can get to know you. He will slowly introduce himself to new people and will soon after love being your new friend!

Spot loves being with people and getting lots of fuss and attention.

He doesn’t travel well in the car as he has only been in a vehicle 2-3 times in his life.

He can be left for short, reasonable periods of time.

Spot knows basic commands and will take treats gently. He doesn’t seem to fussed over playing with toys. Spot would thrive in a quieter household as he gets anxious with too much noise.

When out on walks, Spot walks really well on lead and he really enjoys having a sniff of everything!

Spot is a bit of an escape artist, prospective adopters must have very secure gardens with fencing a minimum of 6 foot.

Spot will also need some further assistance and guidance on being fully house trained.


Under Assessments.



Pending assessments, I am looking for:

  • A pet free home
  • An adult only home
  • A quiet and calm home


Please have a read through on the following link to see how we are working and the current restrictions that we have in place for applicants.

Please contact the rescue if you can offer Spot the forever home he deserves.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.

Help us find Spot a home!

Do you have a home for Spot?

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.
