Covid-19 update: our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing, but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with measures in place to keep staff and adopters safe. Find out more about how national Covid-19 restrictions are affecting our rehoming procedures and other activity.

Our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with new processes in place to keep staff, visitors and adopters safe.

For dogs we know will thrive straight away in their new home, we’re matching them with their new homes virtually and delivering them contact-free. Current restrictions mean we can only facilitate adoptions local to our centres and not across Countries or anywhere there are travel restrictions. We’re not able to make appointments for dogs to meet their family before going home, but we can register interest to arrange appointments when restrictions ease.

We’re currently experiencing an unprecedented amount of interest, with some dogs getting several hundred applications. Please bear with us, we’re doing everything we can to find our dogs their forever homes.

About Jessie

8 and over


Jessie is a scrumptious medium-sized, fawn and white staffie. Don't be fooled by her eight years, because this girl still thinks she is two years old and has an infectious love for life! Jessie loves playing with her toys and taking a dip in the paddling pool on hot days, she is food motivated (which is great for training!) and she is really friendly with her handlers. Jessie is manageable around other other dogs, but you can see in her body language that she would rather avoid them so she would need to be the only dog in the house. She is looking for an adult only home.

Type of home needed

Jessie can be very strong on the lead and would need active (and strong!) owners to keep up with her. She will need an enclosed garden for her to burn off some of that energy and soak up the sun on warm days. Jessie has found being in kennels difficult and unfortunately she has been rehomed and returned a couple of times. When she goes home it'll take a couple of weeks for her to unwind which her new owners must understand, so she is looking for patient owners who are prepared to help her settle in. She will need someone around all the time initially to help her find her feet which means at least 2 people in the household. Potential homes will have to commit to multiple meets at the centre so that they can understand Jessie's training and build a relationship with her before she goes home. Jessie is a wonderful dog, and once settled she'll be a very easy, loving pet - so she is well worth the effort!

More about me

I'm not able to meet you in person at the moment but I'm still ready to find my new home. Please get in touch with our staff to register your interest. Due to Covid-19 travel restrictions my new home MUST be less than a 1-hour-drive from the Leeds rehoming centre.


In these unprecedented circumstances, we're doing everything we can to continue our vital work caring for thousands of stray and abandoned dogs. If you'd like to help, please make a donation. Your support means so much, now more than ever.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Jessie, who is based at Leeds. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. If you think you could be a good match give us a call on the number below

Our rehoming process is a bit different at the moment! We’re now matching dogs with their new families virtually and delivering dogs to their new homes, with social distancing measures in place to help keep staff and adopters safe. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can come and meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment. More info about how our new rehoming process works below.

When you rehome a dog, we’ll give you your welcome bag, which includes a new collar and lead, and our dog care handbook with microchip and insurance details. Plus, to help your new addition settle in we’ll give you a 2kg bag of Wainwright’s dry dog food, courtesy of the Pets at Home VIP Club, unless they have been fed on a different food for dietary or veterinary reasons.
