Summer Needs a Home

About Summer

My Name Is… Summer

I Am… Approximately 4 years old – I was not microhipped when I arrived

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? Under Assessments

Can I be rehomed with cats? No, we cannot cat test dogs from the pound

Can I be rehomed with children? Under Assessments

I am looking for… A forever home


Summer was found as a stray dog on the streets with a severe skin condition. She has recieved antiobiotics and a medicated bath whilst in the pound. As Summer was not claimed, she has been surrendered to Staffie and Stray Rescue to find her forever home.


Summer has just arrived, she will be undergoing assessments to determine what sort of home she is looking for. She will also be visiting our vets for a check up on her general health. She is currently on medicaton 3 times a day and is on a grain free diet to assist in clearing up her skin.

Summer is just a small Staffie (17.7kgs) who loves people and is very excitable upon saying hello. She travels well in the car and likes to be close to you.

She is a typical happy go lucky Staffie looking for her happy ever after.


Currently under assessments. Summer will bark at other dogs but reactivity is still being assessed. She doesn’t appear to have been socialised before.


Pending Assessments, I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • An adult only home
  • A pet free home

Help us find Summer a home!

Do you have a home for Summer?

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.
