Walnut Needs a Home

About Walnut

My Name Is… Walnut

I am.. Approximately 5 years of age

I come from… The Pound

Can I be rehomed with dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Adult Only

I am looking for… A foster or forever home



Walnut has had a really tough time in his life so far. He was removed from a property by the council alongside another dog Missy (Now rehomed) as they were living in bad conditions in a garden.



Walnut is a really sweet and loving boy with his people.

He is on a predominantly dry food diet due to him having more of a sensitive stomach.

Please check back soon for more information.



Walnut is unfriendly towards other dogs, this is probably a result of not being socialised with other animals. We don’t think he has ever been walked and only knew the resident dog, Missy, who he lived with in the garden.

Walnut will probably need to be on lead at all times on walks, he won’t be a dog that can play alongside other dogs.



Walnut is looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • An adult only home

Help us find Walnut a home!

Do you have a home for Walnut?

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.
