About Rambo

5 to 7 Years


Rambo is a handsome seven-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is fun and exuberant and wants to be everyone's friend. He loves his food; he enjoys treats and he knows a 'sit' and a 'down'. He loves playing with toys and with two toys you can get a game of fetch going by swapping one for the other. Rambo is happy to jump into the car to go for lovely walks, but he may bark and be a restless traveller. Rambo does lack some social skills with other dogs but has definite potential to have calm doggy friends to walk with. Rambo loves a fuss and snuggles on the sofa with his humans.

Type of home needed

Rambo has a medical condition that will need to be treated before adoption, so we are looking for a foster home (within an hour of the centre) for him initially, where he can have his operation and recover with lots of TLC. We hope his foster carers will go on to adopt this beautiful boy but if you can't commit to long-term dog ownership but are willing to help him through his medical issues then please still get in touch. Dogs Trust will cover the full cost of the operation and any post-operative care. Rambo will need to be the only dog in the home but would benefit from social doggy pals when out and about. We have no history of him with cats or small furries, however he may chase livestock, so care is needed around them. Rambo is looking for an adult-only home with a family who are willing to give him all of the love that he so deserves. He will need a family member at home most of the time initally, although time left will be able to be built up gradually as he recovers.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre in Devon.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

Start your online application now.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
