10-10-18 Maya is a 3 yr old Bichon Frise who has come from a breeder to find a loving home. She was terrified when first picked up but has gone into a foster home and is starting to settle and after a couple of days she has now stopped shaking.  This little poppet  is going in and out to the garden and does rely on kind dogs to around her to boost her confidence. She needs a kind dog in her new home to help her relax and cuddle up to as well as help her with housetraining and wakling ona lead. She also needs patience, kindness and gentle encouragement to help her find herself and enjoy her new worls.

Poor Maya is very scared and will need a home with another dog, who will be happy for Maya to get in there bed with them, and have her follow them round.
She is fine to be handled, and has today let me groom her. She loves treats and has just started to be brave enough to go out in the garden.
She doesn't walk on a lead, as she is still too scared for that. Maya is very sweet and needs someone who understands scared dogs.

Sweet Maya is still a very scared girl, she must have a home with another gentle dog, that will let her cuddle up with them. She is doing well with toilet training, she will go in the garden and does like the garden, but can be nervous about coming back in, so I have to go out and walk behind her then she will go in. She like a fuss but you have to go to her. We haven't started lead walking yet, but hope to soon now she has braved the garden.

Poor Maya is still very nervous humans. To help her with this she now sleeps in the bedroom, with a couple of other dogs and she is a different dog. She gets excited runs round the bed, gives my fingers kisses and comes for a fuss. Next step is to try and get her walking on a lead. Maya needs a home with lots of patience and TLC.

We have made a start with Maya walking on a lead. So far we are In the front garden, harness and lead on, sitting and watching- she has taken a few steps. I'm not pushing her as she is a very scared girl. As they say "Rome wasn't built in a day". She will get there in her own time.

Maya has managed her first walk. She will need another her own size, who she can follow and will let her snuggle up to them. She loves and will take her self of out there for a wonder round. She is still a nervous girl, but is taking baby steps in the right direction.

Maya is such a sweet girl. She is toilet trained, must have another dog who will let her cuddle up to them, and happy for her to follow them out on walks. She is happy to go out in the garden on her own, will even go out in the rain.
She does need someone who understands nervous dogs. At bed time she races up the stairs to bed and gets very excited when waiting for me to get into bed, she then comes for a fuss. Shes been waiting far too long now, so hopefully someone will have a bichon size spot for her.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

The adoption fee for an adult dog (6 months and over) is £220 and for a puppy is £250, However if the dog has a passport you will be given this when you adopt and we ask for a further £20 to help us buy a passport for another dog. You will find a break down of what the adoption fee covers under our Adoption Procedures (see link below) If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so.
