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.

05-08-19 - Butterfly is a lovely Shar Pei who has come from a breeder. She is a bit underweight at the moment but we can hopefully change that soon. She will walk on a lead a little but she is a little more timid than her friends so she will need another dog to live with to show her all about housetraining and other home manners. She is very sweet and gentle but her nerves get the better of her so she does need some guidance and lots of reassurance. She has come to us with entropian and an eye infection at the moment which we are treating and we can have her more comfortable very soon.

Butterfly is such a lovely playful girl, who loves her walks and attention. She walks on a lead so much better than she use to as she has become so much more confident over the last few weeks. Although now on a lead she tends to pull you along, especially if she sees a cat. With that in mind she will need a home without cats.
Ideally she would need an active home with older children and maybe another dog to help show her how to live in a home. As she has gained so much confidence she can also be an only dog now, but she will still need house training and to learn a few commands especially heel!
She currently still has an eye infection which we are treating and has shown signs of improvement but still needs eye drops for the moment. She is such a sweetheart so please come and meet her, her little wrinkles are so cute you can’t help falling in love.

Butterfly is one of my fave dogs to work with, she is very comical and incredibly loving. Butterfly would make a wonderful only dog in the right home as she is far happier when in the company of humans. She does walk well on a lead but will need correcting at the beginning of her walk as she does like to pull to start with. Please come meet this beautiful girl, she will steal your heart in a instant.

When Butterfly first arrived at Many Tears she was very worried lady, but now she truly is blossoming into her name. She has a lovely, calm nature and enjoys being out of her kennel. Butterfly isn't a particularly energetic dog (unless she sees a cat!) she much prefers to plod along, sniffing everything she finds along the way. Butterfly is wonderful with other female dogs but hasn't been tried with males yet as she was in season. One thing that Butterfly isn't good with is cats and for this reason, she will need to live in a home with no cats. Butterfly has come such a long way recently and now is confident enough to be able to live without other dogs although if she had to, she really wouldn't mind.

Yesterday i took two of our kennel dogs out for the day. I wanted to give them a break from chaotic kennel life and a new lease of life! Butterfly is such an amazing, friendly dog! In kennels she often stands by the door, wagging her tail when people walk past or more recently, has been staying by her bed. As a result, I thought it was time to change up activities and see what makes her happy!

At first, Butterfly was a little wary of the car so I took my time and allowed her to smell and slowly approach it.
I harnessed her up (doggy seat belt) and popped her in the car. Butterfly was an absolute superstar in the car! She laid down for nearly the whole journey and was mainly sleeping. When it came to stops she never tried to push her way out of the car either. She patiently waited for me to take her harness off so she was able to jump out of the car. At first, I had to lift her in and out. However, as her confidence grew she was able to jump out of the car happily! Butterfly hasn’t learnt to jump in yet, but she is a quick learner.
Our journey took us to West Wales, around Ceredigion. We began in a wildlife park for a nice woodland walk.
As soon as we arrived we were ‘greeted’ by a load of young children running past the cars in the car park. They were very noisy and sounded like a stampede. Butterfly made a little grumble. However, with correcting it never occurred again. At first I was hesitant with her when there were people walking past closely or other dogs as I wasn’t sure if she was confident enough. Boy was I wrong !! Butterfly was AMAZING when bikes cycled past us and families walked or ran by. She either completely ignored them and continued her sniffing mission or she got very happy when approached and people fussed her- including two young children who were very respectful!
The second part of our journey led us to a beach. Butterfly loved the sand but wasn’t too keen on the sea. She plodded towards the sea but ran backwards when she saw the water moving towards her! I would say that Butterfly’s highlight of the beach was seeing the dogs running around and playing together! It was at that moment I realised that Butterfly really is a social butterfly. She was thrilled when a friendly lab came running up to her and allowed her to say hi. Butterfly also met a little cockerpoo. Once again I was wary as the cockerpoo was quite petite and Butterfly is a strong girl. I was proven wrong again.... Butterfly and the cockerpoo played amazingly and it was such a joy to see!
To conclude, Butterfly loves to greet people. She gets excited to see other dogs and as long as she can say hi, she is a happy girly and walks along nicely again.
When it comes to hand feeding, I don’t think I know another dog just as gentle as she is! At the beginning of the day she didn’t pay much attention to the fuss she was getting. She was a distant girl. However, as the day progressed she seemed to learn that not all people are mean and that some are friendly. As a result, she began to embrace the fuss myself and others would give her and would even come back for more !
I have fallen head over heels for this girl and if I could take her home, I would do so immediately! Please give this amazing girl a chance to win your heart over, because if there is one thing I’m certain of, I know she will!

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.
