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.

25-7-19 Dublin has come to us from a breeder and is nervous and flighty at the moment.  He will need another dog or dogs to live with for company and to give him some confidence with humans.  Dublin stays in his bed a lot and won't come to us for a fuss yet but it's early days and we hope to see an improvement soon. He does walk on a lead and is slowly getting used to being touched but he is still flinching. With a kind owner and another dog he should slowly start to come around. Dublin is underweight at the moment so we are putting him on an eating programme.  Dublin has a passport.

If you are looking for an active and exciting dog then look no further because you have found Dublin! Dublin walks lovely on the lead but also loves to run around free too ( in a secure space) His behaviour is very typical of a collie, alert and ready for action at a moments notice.
Dublin has lived in a house before and is fairly clean in his kennel and knows a couple of commands. I'm sure that it wouldn't take him long to learn some more
. He shares his kennel space happily with other dogs and would be happy to live with another dog but is confident to live on his own if needed.
Dublin is a strikingly beautiful collie and would compliment any active home.

After too long in kennels, Dublin has come into foster here in Ruislip.
Dublin is SO pleased to be in a home. He greeted me and my family like long lost friends, including the kids. Dublin loves all people. This happy collie travels well, can walk on a lead and is clean in the house. Early recall training is going well - he zooms back to me and sits happily in front of me waiting for a treat. Dublin has learned to ‘sit’ ‘down’ and ‘stay’ in no time. He is super clever and food orientated thus making him a dream to train. He would excel at agility, flyball, obedience or quite simply anything you take the time to teach him!
Like all clever clogs collies, Dublin will need owners who spend time with him, who will enjoy helping him use his clever brain and take him on lots of lovely walks and adventures.
He meets all dogs brilliantly. He is playful and polite with others. He is confident enough to be an only dog but would need lots of doggy playdates.
At home Dublin is calm and cuddly. He has a very good ‘off switch’ and thoroughly enjoys TV snuggles on the sofa. I really hope Dublin’s people find him soon, he has so much potential to be discovered and so much love to give, whoever adopts him will be very lucky.

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.

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