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 Kapper is a stunning little lady. She has come to us from a breeder with a wound on her neck which is slightly infected at the moment but we are treating her for this. She really needs a nice home to call her own with a kind resident dog or dogs who she can watch and copy to help her with things like house training and lead walking.  We reccomend researching beagles before submitting an application form but they are a lovely breed and whoever adopts this girl will be very lucky.

Kapper has known me for a little while, three morning a week I let her and her kennel friends out of her kennel area into the recreation area to have a run around and then they are fed. Today I spent some time in her kennel so as to get to know her. Although she would potter around her kennel with me in close vicinity and would only accept treats from the floor, she was reluctant to be touched. Sometimes a dog has to be put out of their comfort zone in order to progress, so even though Kapper exhibited signs of stress, she allowed me to fit a harness and to gently stroke her whole body, She will continue to wear a harness during the day and will soon learn that we only have 'kind hands,' walking on a lead is the next stage of progress, Kapper will then be able to explore the country side, 'beagling' about just like a beagle should.

Beautiful Kapper took the time to pose with our other beagles to say Happy Howloween! She is the most beautiful girl and she has been waiting patiently for a long time now for a home to call her own. Trick or Treat? If you take on Kapper you will quickly see what a Treat you have with her.

25-10-19 UPDATE

Kapper is beginning to enjoy life, I don't often see her, but when I do she is running around her kennel along with her friends, her little tail wagging away.
I had the pleasure of working on her section a few days ago for a few hours early morning, she enjoyed being let out into the play yard and after a while she ran back into her kennel for breakfast, which in typical beagle fashion she enjoyed, then licked all the other dog's bowls, as in turn they licked hers, not a cross word by any.
Kapper has started to walk on a lead with the staff she knows well albeit hesitantly.
This dear girl would so benefit from being in a home. At this stage any prospective applicant would need experience of what was once a scared dog, in addition a friendly resident dog is a must. Keep watching Kapper's updates and share her journey from what was a very scared girl, to her in time blossoming into a typical confident beagle.
Attached picture gives some idea of her and her kennel friends enthusiasm of food about to be served.

Kapper has been in foster with us for 3 weeks now and she is slowly starting to come out of her shell.  She is still a very frightened little girl and will need an understanding home with experience of ex breeders even better with experience of the breed.   
Kapper will take treats from our hands and is very very gentle.  She likes to have a friend or two to follow about.  We have found that she likes to follow the pack and it’s helped her to not be so worried and hide on her own.  She greets us with a big wag of the tail every time she sees us.   Kapper is clean in the house and a very sweet girl to have around.  If you think you could give her a loving and patient home, please apply now because she’s been waiting for so long to start her new life

Kapper has been with us for a very long time now; she’s actually one of our longest stayers. It’s really sad because she’s such a nice dog, and she’s so beautiful. Her confidence is improving, but quite slowly. She will approach people, even those she doesn’t really know. She’ll give a little sniff and have a nose, and then go back to doing her own thing. She’s still very jumpy with sudden movements, and this is hard for our rescue dogs to get over as the centre is very noisy and busy. I’m sure in a home environment, she would settle quite quickly.
Unfortunately, Kapper has been returned to us from foster, but through no fault of her own. So this poor dog has gone from living in a home, to being back in kennels. Kapper gets on very well with all of her kennel friends - she’s playful with them but also very cuddly. This means that she will still need a home with a resident dog or dogs.
When Kapper was in her foster home, she was clean - which is always a bonus! Because Kapper is still quite nervous, it would be best for her to go to a home with people who have experience with timid and flighty dogs. She is a really lovely dog, and it’s so heartbreaking that she’s still looking for her forever home. It’s nearly Christmas, and I’d really love for her to find a kind and loving family before then. So if you’re at all interested in her, please come down to the centre to meet her!

Kapper the beagle is making amazing progress. I went to visit her and was delighted to see her running around with a cuddly toy in her mouth. Our precious beagle is beginning to do the things that we take for granted and we are all so very proud of her. I sat on the play bench, Kapper jumped up behind me and dropped her toy, what a clever girl. She has also been for her Christmas photoshoot and doesn't she look pretty?

Kapper is indeed a wonderful girl. She just needs a more experienced home and has to go with another dog. She has learned to bring her toys to you for a play and even though still nervous, she is coming on leaps and bounds. Once she is in her comfort zone, she is wonderful. Going easy and gentle with her and having patience is the way forward with Kapper and she will be an outgoing beautiful beagle. She is looking for a quiet home in order for her to keep progressing but another resident dog will help her confidence loads. She needs to be in her forever home though and so deserves it.

To my little Kapper ..... I wish I could tell you why nobody wants you, why everybody just walks past your kennel without even giving you a second look, why your friends keep getting adopted but you’re always left behind, and why you’ve been in kennels for 6 whole months ..... but I can’t, because I don’t understand why.
So this beautiful girl, Kapper, has been with us for 6 months now. She’s one of our longest stayers, and it’s just heart breaking. Is it because she’s a beagle? Is it because of the way she looks? Is it because she’s nervous? I just don’t know.
Kapper’s confidence is improving, but still very slowly. There’s so much going on at MT, she’s really finding it hard to just let herself go and come out of her shell. She’s in desperate need of the chance to become a normal dog, but nobody is giving it to her. Kapper needs a warm and loving home, with a family who will provide her with nothing but kindness and patience. She’s still a very nervous dog, so previous experience working with scared dogs will be needed. We also wouldn’t want to re-home her with children, again because of her lack of confidence.
Kapper has been kennelled with so many different dogs at MT, then they get adopted so she has to be introduced to more dogs. It seems to be a never ending cycle, unfortunately for Kapper. But even through all this, she’s always remained the perfect kennel friend for all the other dogs - big or small.
Because Kapper is still a nervous dog, she will need to be re-homed with a resident dog or dogs. She would be absolutely lost without a companion, so this is very important. She needs to learn that us humans aren’t that scary, and being in an environment with a homed dog will really help this.
Kapper does walk on a lead, although she cowers a lot and does not like sudden movements or loud noises. She will approach everybody and give them a sniff (and a kiss if you’re lucky enough). She adores playing with toys in the play yards, and she will greet you with a smile and a waggy tail once she gets to know you.
If anybody thinks they could give this precious girl a chance, please come down to the centre to meet her, or fill in an application form for her. She’s been with us since July last year, and that’s just too long for a girl like her to be in kennels. Please give this angel a chance.

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 KAPPER^ 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.
