Stella Needs a Home

About Stella

My Name Is… Stella

I Am… 3.5 Years Old

Can I be rehomed with other dogs… No

Can I be rehomed with cats… No

Can I be rehomed with children… Aged 12+

I am looking for… A  forever home


Stella has been a well loved dog, however sadly due to fighting with the resident dog, she was surrendered into our care.


Hi, I’m Stella!

When I was surrendered, I was a little shy and quiet as it was hard for me and my family to part. However, now I’m more settled, I do have a crazier side where I jump up and get more excitable with people! I just need an understanding home who can give me the time and patience I need.

I have been in kennels for a short period of time and I am now in a loving foster home!

I know the basic commands and I take treats gently. I am enjoying snuggles on the sofa of an evening.

I’m not really into playing with toys. I love peanut butter!

I enjoy a rich tea biscuit of an evening before I go to bed!


I am not social with other dogs. Some dogs I can walk past at a safe distance nicely, other times I will display more reactive behaviour. Generally with no stimulation I walk very well on the lead.


I am looking for:

  • A forever home
  • A pet free home
  • I could live with children 12+, who are used to being around dogs who might jump up and be a bit boisterious.

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:
