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.

25-07-2019 Kady is a 5 year old ex breeding Pug Cross. She is a very scared little lady who will need a caring, experienced adult only home. Kady is currently very overweight and will need to go on a healthy eating plan. We will need her new owner so to be able to contintue with the diet and healthy lifestyle. Kady will need another dog already living in the home to help her learn about things like house training and lead walking and who will give her the confidence she needs to trust people.

26-08-19 UPDATE

Kady has come on very well since her arrival, her confidence has grown, her harness training is underway and her weight loss on her new diet has been very good. Saying all that, she is still understandably very scared of people, she will try her very best to run away from you in her kennel and avoid being touched, she needs gently easing into her bed in the corner, from that point on she is actually very easy to handle, but care has to be taken once you carry her out of the kennel.
Kady's eyes really tell you all you need to know, she is unbelievably sweet, innocent but simply afraid.
Kady's harness training is slow progress, she is fine with me putting it on and then clipping her lead on, she also makes no fuss of then being picked up. When outside, I have two leads on her, one a clip on her harness and one a slip lead around her neck, this way there is no way she could spook and slip anything. Walking wise, she does ten times better with another dog walking beside her for reassurance, she will freeze often if startled and on her own she isn't comfortable enough to even take any steps, but with another dog, it wasn't too difficult getting her going. This is something that will need to be continued in a safe, secure area in her forever home.
Kady shares beds, food and anything else wity dogs of any size, she is currently in with small dogs of varying breeds and could safely be rehomed with any size or gender dog. It goes without saying that as Kady is so scared, she would need another dog in her forever home as she relies on them so much for comfort and learning. Kady is beautiful, sweet and desperate for her first ever home to continue her great progress.

I met Kady for the first time today after working on her section and she really has such a sweet temperament. Her previous update sums her up really well so I won't try and cover those things about her again.
It took some time for her to get used to me, being a new face and all, but she allowed me to put her harness on without much fuss and let me stroke her. After going out in the play yard with her friends we went out for a walk alone and she did really well.
Her regular staff carers have worked with her nicely and she was brave enough to walk steadily for 10 minutes off site on her own, with only the occasional turn back of the head to check how far away we had strayed. Kady has a laid back personality and she is going to blossom in an environment where someone can dedicate enough time with her in the early stages so she can develop a strong trust in people that is not there at the moment. She without a doubt will make a great addition to her new family and hopefully that is just around the corner for her. Kady would need another resident dog at home for her to manage the transition from her previous life to her new one.

29-09-19 UPDATE

Kady has been in foster for 2 weeks, and in that time she has been no trouble at all. She walks lovely on a lead trotting happily behind sniffing and enjoying meeting new dogs. She sleeps quietly in a crate all night and loves her food. Cheese is her favourite tread. She has only had one accident indoors and that was when she first arrived. Kady has the saddest little face and eyes. She always lays with the other dogs so she would like a home with another dog that she could enjoy her life with. She is still a little hand shy, but she really is a very inoffensive little lady.

Kady has been in foster for nearly 2 months and her confidence has grown. She is so happy when she sees her lead and harness! She doesn’t walk fast as she enjoying sniffing and loves to meet new dogs when we are out. Although she doesn’t play with my dogs, Kady will always sit with them and would need another dog for company. She has a really sweet nature.

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.
Large breed dogs over 25kg cost us considerably more  to spay and neuter so if you are adopting a large breed dog we would be very grateful of an extra suggested donation of £10 towards this increased cost to help us keep running.
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.

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