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.

15-08-2019 Weaver is a 4 year old female bichon, She came from a breeder and she is shy and submissive. She is easy to handle and will settle into your arms. Weaver will need another dog in the home to help her learn the ropes and copy new skills like house training and she would prefer this to be a larger male dog. She is a very pretty girl, inside and out. Weaver will need her people to be at home with her, to help her adjust to living in a home.

Today I spent some time with Weaver.  She is a lovely little lady but has had a bit of a rough time of it.  She came to us not having known any love or kindness and what she still doesn't know is how her life is going to change for the better!!
She is quite a nervous girl who will need someone with a lot of time and patients to help her with life in the big world. While I spent time with Weaver I notice how aware of her surroundings she is, she keeps herself to herself at the moment she was quite wary of me at first but after a little time she did take treats from my hand very gently.
She is easy to handle and settles in your arms she does back away from you at first but when your close enough you can smooth her very slowly any sudden movements and she backs off. Currently she does not yet walk on a lead but she is in harness training and is getting used to having the harness put on her daily.  She really doesn't mind having it on her either which is a step in the right direction!!
Weaver will need a home where there is a larger male dog but in the right home with an experienced owner she could be an only dog. However scared Weaver is right now when she finally has the chance at a life in a loving home I know she will come out of her shell! She just needs someone to fall in love with her and give her the chance she so desperately deserves. Weaver has a beautiful face to go with the beautiful soul I know she is hiding.

Weaver and I headed out to the Many Tears garden this afternoon to work on her harness training. She has started to become more and more comfortable wearing her harness and with the help of some encouragement and a few yummy treats, she is walking short distances. She has a great nose and loves exploring in the grass. This is all very new to her and it may take her some time to become completely confident with the idea of walking on a lead but the improvements today were amazing and I am extremely proud of her progress.

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.
