Spud Needs a Home

About Spud

My Name Is… Spud

I Am… 3 Years Old

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Adult only

I am looking for… A forever home


Poor Spud has been in 4 homes already and its time for him to find his forever home! In his current home, he was taken on by a family who offered to help when a vet nurse sent out a plea for someone to help poor Spud who kept being passed around  and was brought in to be put to sleep. The family thought that they would only have him for a short period of time to help out, however due to so many people looking for puppies in lockdown, poor Spud was overlooked.

SSR have agreed to help Spud and find him a home who can meet all his needs.


Spud is an active dog who likes lots of excercise and he loves to explore! He know many commands, he is very clever and willing to learn.

He loves nothing more than being with people.

Spud does have which is managed through hypoallergenic food and apoquel. He may require further allergy assessments which SSR will be able to address before rehoming.

He loves to chase a ball and play tug of war. He would benefit from a home who can offer an active lifestyle.

Spud would love a home who would allow him to be on the sofa and the bed as he just loves human contact.


Spud can ignore some dogs on walks but doesn’t get on well with all dogs. His previous home have muzzled trained him.


Pending further assessments, I am looking for:

  • A pet free home
  • An adult only home
  • A home who can continue my training as I love to learn
  • A home who can confidently manage my behaviour around other dogs and be comfortable with me wearing a muzzle


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 Spud the home that he deserves,

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.

Help us find Spud a home!

Do you have a home for Spud?

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.
