Winston Needs a Home

About Winston

My Name Is… Winston

I Am… 4 Years Old – DOB 16th June 2016

I Am… An American Bulldog Cross

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 foster or forever home


Winston was left abandoned in a flat for 3 days before being saved. Fortunetely, a plea was made for help and we were able to step in. Thank you to the landlord of this property who enabled the transport team access to help Winston and save him. We have no idea what he has been through.


Winston, affectionally known as ‘Winnie’ by the SSR team, is a large American Bulldog Cross.

He is initially a little nervous upon meeting new people but it doesn’t take him long at all to get to know you. He is very loveable and cuddly with people he is comfortable this.

Winston may benefit from scent training or puzzle games, he seems very intelligent and aware of his surroundings.

He will be looking for a new home who is physically able to handle him and put in additional work with training.


Under Assessments. It doesn’t look like Winston has had much training or socialisation with other dogs in his past.


Pending assessments, I am looking for…

  • A pet free home
  • An adult only home
  • A home who can handle my strength on lead
  • A home who can continue my training

Help us find Winston a home!

Do you have a home for Winston?

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.
