** This pet has been Rehomed **
Date Added: 26th May 2018
Pet Type: Dog
Looking for a new home.

Rocky the handsome 5 year old Staffy was surrendered into our care after his owners decided to move abroad. 

He is your typical staffy: boisterous and full of love! 

He absolutely adores people and will roll over onto his back for belly rubs every chance he gets. Rocky walks wonderfully on the lead, is almost fully toilet trained, fine with cats and excellent with children as long as they are able to withstand his boisterousness!

In his previous home, Rocky did not have many opportunities to interact with other dogs, but when he meets them at the centre he seems curious and friendly. He can be a little domineering as he has not yet learned how to play appropriately, but we think he could potentially live with another calm dog. 

If interested in offering Rocky his new forever home please visit him at the centre during opening hours 12;4pm Tues - Sun

Adoption Procedure - Dogs

If you are looking to adopt a dog from the Rainbow Rehoming Centre please visit the centre where you can see all of the dogs that are in our care.  Our staff can help determine which is the right dog for you and your family.  

Next you will be required to fill out a booking form which is a series of questions to find out if you will be able to look after the dog for its lifetime.  Before any dog leaves the centre a home check is carried out to ensure you have a secure and loving environment for the dog.

Finally, our adoption fee is £100 This adoption fee covers the following:-

  • Worm and de-flea
  • Two vaccinations
  • Neutering
  • Micro chipping

Please Note:

When the Rainbow Rehoming Centre takes in an animal, whether it is a cat, dog, kitten or puppy it is with the intention of finding this animal its forever home. Our commitment to this animal is not temporary though, as even after adoption a Rainbow animal remains a 'Rainbow animal' for life. So if at any time after adoption, whether it is one week, one year or ten years and you find that you cannot take care of your Rainbow pet you must contact us at the centre and your pet will be returned into our care. Under no circumstances should a Rainbow animal be passed on.

If you have any questions regarding the welfare of your pet please contact the Rainbow Centre and we will be glad to help.
