Ted Needs a Home

About Ted

My Name is… Ted

I am… 17 months old

I am.. A small Cross breed

Can I be rehomed with other dogs?  No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Yes, Children over 12

I am looking for… A foster or forever home



Ted is looking for a new home. He has been a well-loved dog but sadly is not getting on with the other resident dog, so is looking for a new home.



Ted is a young male and very puppy like, but he is wary of new people. It takes some time for him to warm up to new people. We are looking for a quiet, patient and understanding home for him. In particular, he is nervous and wary of men. He can be quite jumpy and barky and will benefit from additional training. He absolutely loves his foster home and has become her shadow!

As he is a young boy with little training, he can have the occasional accident in the home. Ted walks great on the lead and is well socialised with other dogs outside of the home. He is a very smart and cheeky chappy who can open doors!

Ted loves to play with shadows and lights! He gets so excited and will run and chase them for a long time! He also enjoys playing tug with his toys!

Ted was not getting on with the resident dog in the home so he must be the only animal in the home of any prospective adopters.

He can be anxious around any new surroundings or noises, but overall he is a really loving boy who enjoys cuddles and kisses with his caregivers once he gets to know them!


Ted is well socialised with other dogs when out and about on walks but isn’t friendly in the home setting.



  • I am looking for a pet free home.
  • I am looking for someone to continue my training.
  • I am looking for a patient and understanding home.
  • Any children in the home must be over 12 years.

Please contact the rescue if you are interested via email

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.

Help us find Ted a home!

Do you have a home for Ted?

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.
