If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

07-07-19 Nadia is a 2 year old female German Shephard who has come to us from a breeder. Nadia already walks on a lead but is very shy at the moment. You can already see Nadia wants to trust us and be friends as she's such a sweet girl. All she needs is love and patience in her new home and a friendly resident dog who can help build her confidence and help her with house training.  We think you'll soon see how amazing she is.

25-07-19 UPDATE
Nadia has been living in a foster home for a week or so now and we can confirm that she is really big - a really big softie that is!
She is very shy, but she is so eager to please and loves to have some fuss, and generally she is showing every sign of becoming a very loving and loyal companion if given time.
Nadia is very gentle with our small dogs and respectful of our cat but we feel that she may enjoy the company of a dog that would be robust enough to be a playmate once they knew each other.
Nadia has been completely clean in the house since her arrival. She has decided that the kitchen is her safe place so that she can go in and out of the garden when she wants to, but she will pop her head into the living room to see what we are up to and she is then brave enough to grab a nylabone and take it into the kitchen or the garden for a chew before burying it behind the shed.
Walks aren't her favourite thing at the moment, as she is frightened by traffic and strangers, but she walks politely on a lead and takes reassurance from you. We hope that some lucky person will see the potential that Nadia has to blossom into a truly stunning girl.

Nadia’s confidence is gradually improving and this is most evident when it comes to going out on walks. While she is still often shy and anxious about putting a paw wrong when she is in the house, she is full of joy when she is out and about. She is beginning to learn how to play, and also to follow some simple commands on walks. Nadia will now jump in and out of the car and she travels quietly. Her favourite walks are in open meadows or parkland, where she loves to meet other dogs while avoiding their owners, as she still finds people frightening. Nadia is excellent with all dogs she meets.

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.
