03-07-2019 - Twinky is a 5 year old ex breeding beagle who has come to us to find her forever home. Twinky is a bit hand shy at the moment but will come around and does wag her tail. Up until now Twinky has been running free on farm land so is a beginner at walking on a lead. Twinky will need a kind resident dog in her new home to show her all the essential skills she still has to learn such as walking on a lead and house training.

Twinky has been with us just under a week now but her progress is coming along quickly. She took so well to harness training yesterday that we decided to try her on a lead. Two walks later, each with a confident dog in tow, and she is now confident enough to maintain a regular pace with only the passing traffic a slight worry for her, which I'm sure she will soon overcome once she is used to it.
Twinky has also started to go out into the yard with the other dogs on her own and does not need to be encouraged or carried out which is nice to see. This regal looking beagle is going to make the perfect companion to somebody out there who either loves the breed or is looking for a super friendly and docile dog to share their life with. Twinky will need another resident dog in the home at this early stage though as her confidence is built around her canine friends being close by.

So today I met Twinky for the first time and what a beautiful beagle she is, she is a happy waggy girl, sudden movements still scare her and make her jump, so if she's sitting with you and you move your arm she will jump backwards, but she doesn't hold it against you she just comes straight back and gives you kisses.
Twinky will still need another dog in her new home to help her gain more confidence, but I think once she's in a home it won't be long before she's acting like she's always been there

Twinky is a little hand shy and timid but she is adapting to her new environment and getting used to things nicely. Human contact is scary to her right now and with time and patience she will learn that humans can be good and she will then begin to enjoy the attention a new owner can give her.
As everything is new to her right now, she won’t play with toys because she most probably doesn’t know their purpose. Although she is shy right now, she has so much potential to be a great companion to the right family. Could you give this beautiful dog a second chance at life?

I had to update you all on Twinky as there’s been a big change in her since her last update. Her confidence has grown so much and I really couldn’t be happier.
Twinky is an absolute delight and I adore working with her. She’s been on my section for a while now, and it shows. I’ve earned her trust completely and she will let me do anything with her. She’s constantly approaching me for fusses and even tries to get on my lap now.
She gives me kisses and always wags her tail when she sees me. Twinky has gotten on with every dog she’s been kennelled with, and I’ve never had one issue with her. She’s currently kennelled with 2 other beagles and a cocker, and she’s always snuggled up in bed with them.
She’s such a friendly girl, I couldn’t see her having a problem with any dog. She will need to be homed with a resident dog, just so she can learn how to become a normal dog. By this I mean walking on a lead, becoming house trained and generally living in a home. Twinky has been here for a long time now, and I really would love to find her forever home.
Please come down to the centre to meet her. She’s a very special girl and she deserves the best life possible!

Well, I can't believe there are so many write ups on our girl Twinky, and she's still at the centre! What more can I say? I have worked very closely with Twinky in the past, but hadn't seen her for a couple of weeks... when she saw me coming, she jumped out of bed, ran over to the front of her kennel and gave me a lovely greeting! She looked up at me seemingly smiling, wagged her tail, and happily trotted out of her kennel - walking into the hoop of her lead, and out of her kennel section for a little walk with me!
Twinky, or Twinkabelle as I sometimes call her, walks beautifully and so elegantly on the lead, as if she were a show dog! She is a typical beagle, who loves to sniff, and likes to go where her nose takes her, even if I don't want to go in that direction haha! She is a quiet, well behaved, easy to work with girl, who gets on well with all dogs she is kennelled with, shares her beds, food and toys perfectly - she is perfect to me and to a lot of the staff! The one thing I have noticed is that in new situations and surroundings, and when she meets new people, she can be scared. She can be a little jumpy too.
I took Twinky into the grooming room yesterday because her coat needed a little brush, but she was too scared to walk into a room where there was a number of people in, so I had to carry her through bless her. She sat on the grooming table happily though, having a good old nose out of the window at the other dogs in the kennels outside! She wasn't phased about the brush at all, and looked great afterwards!
Twinky is a really lovely girl, a true beagle at heart - gentle, loving, inquisitive, who needs another dog in her forever home. Twinky would be a beautiful addition to every dog family to be honest!

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.

Although TWINKY ^ is by donation rather than the full adoption fee, we ask for a minimum donation of £100 to help cover the costs that have been incurred. 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. 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. 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.

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