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.

26-7-19 What a little champ Mack is! This little guy is confident, friendly and ready to explore! He has a passport and walks on the lead well so he could literally go anywhere with you! He could be house trained but we can't guarantee it but it won't take him long to learn if he isn't.  Mack can be an only dog and if homed with others they need to be bigger than him and male.

What a dog! Mack is the ideal adventure buddy, he will go with you everywhere, he is very loyal and wants to please.
I had him at home with me for a few nights on foster, he settled very well. By night 2 he had the notion of routine and saving his business for the garden, he began listening to voice commands and being respectful.
Mack does come with a few issues, however; he has to learn that he is not the boss! He is dominant of small dogs, especially females (naturally, that's been his job for years!) but since his castration last week, we are hoping this will calm down soon. I would suggest a home without cats to be on the safe side, although he initially didn't pay them any attention, once settled, he became very interested in my young cats, and his play got a little too intense and snapped at them as they ran to avoid him. This is the reason I couldn't keep him in my home.
If Mack has something in his mind, he likes to follow it through, for example, he wanted to see what my dogs were eating instead of having his own food, when guiding him back to his food, he let me know that he wasn't happy with my decision and snapped at me. As he is so intelligent and generally obedient this is something that can be remedied and in the few short days he was with me, he certainly improved.
Voice commands work much better with him at the moment that physical touch, but that's because he's not used to a kind hand of guidance. He's a great dog, a typical Jack! He needs a home with plenty of entertainment, brain stimulation, exercise and time to spend with him. A home without cats or young children would probably be best, but he has a passport and travels great in a car, so is ready to join you on every road trip and adventure you could imagine! Give Mack a chance, he really isn't suited to kennel life!

Mack has been on my section for a few days now and he really is a sweet boy. Very gentle and quite playful once he gets to know you. Since his operation, Mack seems to be less dominant of females now and has got on well with both Hazel, who just left us for her new forever home, and Kalypso a 6 year old Pug cross. He may therefore be able to go to a home with a female resident dog, as long as the circumstances are right and he passes the initial meet and greet with them at MT.
As already mentioned, Mack really enjoys the outdoors and he likes going out for walks with his kennel buddies. He walks perfectly on a lead and will wait patiently for you without fuss should you need to stop.
Mack loves a belly rub and will roll over on his back for you to give him some much needed attention! When he's left to his own devices he will quite happily settle down after his exercise and snuggle up in bed with his new friend Kalypso. He does usually like to play fetch, but as you can see in the video he wasn't having any of it this time!

This little guy is getting used to putting up with life in kennels. He’s currently got a female roomie about the same kind of size who he gets on well with and is very respectful. Mack absolutely loves spending time going out for walks at any opportunity he gets, and Is getting so used to human touch he often rolls over for a belly rub! He can most certainly be an only dog, he’d probably enjoy it more than having to share you with another dog! He’s very cuddly and always front of the queue for a fuss.

Mack has been here for over a month now so is very keen to find his forever home. We are not sure what has happened in Mack's past so therefore he needs a home without children because he has an issues when it comes to food.  If homed with another dog it would need to be larger than him, however in the right home Mack could be an only dog. He is such a lovely confident boy who really enjoys going out for walks, he likes having cuddles but even more than that absolutely loves belly rubs! Mack is such a handsome boy, in his life he hasn't seen much love or happiness so is very ready for a new life filled with all he has missed out on.

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.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

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