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.

15-082019 October is a 7 year old female bichon frise. October will need to live with another dog, so that she can be shown how to love humans, and how to behave and copy house training. She has never been beyond her breeders, so she is a very nervous and frightened girl, and having a resident dog will help her learn that not all humans are so scary. She will need an experienced home, to help her overcome her fears. She's a very sweet girl and will easily become someones best friend!

October is still quite shy but she her confidence is slowly improving. She's quite easy to handle and doesn't mind having health checks done on her. She is very sweet natured and very very inquisitive. She will make a wonderful dog in the right home. Shes an absolute stunner. October gets on very well with her kennel mates and is always easy going towards new dogs that join her kennel.

October is a very pretty eye catching long legged bichon. She is a very nervous girl but we have already seen changes and her confidence is slowly improving!
She isn't walking on a harness and lead just yet as her kennel handler is working with her slowly to gain her trust and confidence and not overwhelm her.
October would best suit a calm quiet home and definitely have another resident dog to help her with her confidence around people toilet training and general home life.
In time October will learn that the big wide world outside isn't that scary and that there really are loving people.
She is 7yrs old and has never known what a loving family is and this something she really does deserve. Please don't be put off by her age as this little girl has so much life left in her and in her heart she still think shes a young chicken

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.
Large breed dogs over 25kg cost us considerably more  to spay and neuter so if you are adopting a large breed dog we would be very grateful of an extra suggested donation of £10 towards this increased cost to help us keep running.
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.
