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.

18-8-19 Nickle is a very scared girl who has come to us from a breeder.  She needs a lot of love and understanding and will need someone who has the time she needs to help her start enjoying life. She has never seen the outside world before and this is very daunting and scary at the moment,  Nickle needs to build up some muscle tone and this will improve once she gets used to running run in the play yard and starts harness and lead transing.  She is going to need a calm resident dog or dogs in her new home to help her flourish.  She will watch and copy what they do which will help her with house training etc.  We are looking for a calm, quiet and gentle home who have experience with scared dogs.  We will not be homing her with children for no other reason than they would be simply too overwhelming for her at the moment.

26-09-19 UPDATE

Nickle known in foster as Nicki has been with us just over two weeks in Norwich. She still remains a very scared girl who would prefer to stay in her bed and not move out if it,  however  when she is encouraged into the garden she happily tries to play with our resident dogs, but soon becomes scared and wants to run back to her bed.
Nicki will now eat her food if we sit quietly in the room with her, we are making progress in that she will take treats from my hand when in her bed. She is not running away every time I approach her in her bed and is not terrified as much of my touch and is beginning to relax when picked up or stroked.
Lead training will come in time but may take some time before she is ready to trust us enough to have her lead on as the lead is very scary for her.
Little Nicki is only around three and just needs her adopter to have lots of time, love and patience. S
he will need someone to be home with her to carry on with her training and so she gets used to being with kind humans, she will also need a kind resident dog or dogs to help her understand we are kind loving people who mean her no harm.
Could you be the person to help and love this little girl better.

Nicky has now been in foster with us for 5 weeks.  She is slowly learning that we won’t hurt her and her tail is now starting to wag when we speak to her.  She now allows me to place her on the sofa and is happy to sit next to me and be stroked.  She is now choosing to stay in the living room with us without running back to her bed in the evening.
Lead training has started and her harness has been on the past couple of days and although this terrifies her we have now progressed to being outside my house and sitting watching people and traffic go by without panicking.
Nicky will need someone who is prepared to continue to work with her to gain her trust and to have lots of patience and love to give her. She is happy living with all my resident dogs and even visiting dogs are greeted with a waggy tail so she would like a nice friendly confident dog or dogs in her new home to keep her company and for reassurance.
Nicky is such a lovely girl and it's a real pleasure to see her emerge as a happy girl who is now starting to enjoy her life rather than the girl who was so terrified when rescued and who then came into foster.

29-10-19 UPDATE
Nickle has been in foster with us for some weeks.  She arrived petrified and could not even make eye contact with us but she has now started to grow in confidence.  She will now make eye contact with us when we speak to her, she is house trained and never has accidents in the house and she has just started to play with our dogs in the garden running around playing chase.  None of this sounds a lot but for this little girl who did not know how to be a dog and was petrified of humans it is a massive step forward to her enjoying her new life.
Nickle will need a loving family with a friendly playful dog preferably a male cav/cocker size dog or dogs to help her continue to understand her life is now filled with love and kindness and fun - something she has sadly not known. Nickle is not yet ready to start her lead training but if her confidence continues to grow it should not be much longer before this happens. Nickle is in foster in Norfolk.

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.

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