02-05-19 - Matty is a very scared dog who has come from a breeder. Matty is worried to find himself here and knows he doesnt belong. He is great with other dogs while here in kennels so we are looking to rehome him where there is another dog in place at home which will make him feel much more relaxed and also help him learn house skills like housetraining. Should you have lots TLC going spare then please pop your application form through because when he settles and adjusts to his new life he is going to be super

Well this is little Matty, he's a little darling although he is still quite handshy, he does try to come over to see you, as you can see from the close up picture I don't think it will take Matty too much longer to come round, he just needs that little bit extra tlc for him to realise how much he can enjoy it, so if you have that time, please give this little boy the home he deserves.

What a handsome young chap Mattie is and with a bit of a groom he will be absolutely gorgeous. Mattie shares his kennel with four lovely girls - lucky lad and they all seem to adore him. Mattie is still scared of us humans and will run away from me, but if he goes into the corner he will let me stroke him and pick him up, but he's obviously not used to this. Mattie needs a home with a confident dog and an owner who's willing to take the time and patience to show him how good life can be in a home.

Matty is a lovely sweet boy but a little shy of people, although does try to come over to see you but is just afraid at the moment. He will stand still and let you stroke him and pick him up but he is unsure why at the time but as soon as you stop his little tail starts to wag as he so wants human contact but doesn’t trust anyone yet. When you first go in to his kennel he doesn’t move and simply lifts his head to see you but as you get closer her runs and hides if he can. With this in mind he will need a quiet forever home to help build his confidence in humans. He will also need another resident dog to help him settle and learn not just house training but also how to live a happy life in a home with humans knowing he’s part of that pack and safe. If you have a time and love to give to this lovely boy, please come and meet him.

Matty came to us back in May and although he’s still a little nervous he has come a long way. As mentioned in previous posts, he is a little shy of people but does try to come over to see you. If you take your time he will come to you before backing off but if you go to him he will stand still and let you stroke him and pick him up. His reaction is sweet as his tail stops when you stroke him and wags as you stop.
As he is still shy he will need a quiet forever home to help build his confidence as well as he would need another resident dog to help him learn all about living in a home. He is not walking on a lead and will also need house training. He currently shares with Ruffle a female Yorkie who bark a bit but they seem to get on ok, and I wound suggest the current resident dog be of similar size and a female. If you could fit this young lad in to your family, please pop in the centre and meet him.

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. You must have a safe means of transporting the dog home in a crate or if this is not possible please discuss with Many Tears or the Fosterer when your application is being processed.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
