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.

04-09-2019 Simon is a 6 month old male pug cross beagle who has come to us from a breeder.  He is a very nervous pup who spends the day hiding in bed out of the way of humans.  He shakes with fear when we are near which is so sad to see at such a young age.  Simon will need house training and doesn't walk on a lead.  He will need another dog in a home without children who would simply overwhelm him.  We are looking for a quiet home with lots of love to give. Simon will need to be neutered at the age of 6 months and will need to attend training classes.

Simon has been with us for just over a month now and has made quite a bit of progress. His confidence is a lot better now. He used to hide at the back of his kennel when he first came in to us but now he often comes right up to say hello and sometimes will let us touch him.
He can still be a bit wary but it's a far cry how he used to be. He's been with quite a few different kennel mates now and he's got on well with all of them. Simon is starting to get better at walking on a lead, he's still a bit unsure at times about being on a lead, this will improve ten fold over time with plenty of training. Simon loves to play with the toys in the yard, I often catch him chucking the toys around for himself. With a bit of love and time and patience Simon will transform into an extremely confident dog.

Simon has been with us in Norfolk for a few days. He is a lively young pupster with a heart of gold and no malice in him at all. He loves to run and play like all youngsters. He will sniff and accept treats from your hand but is still very hand shy where touching his body is concerned.
Simon is getting better with his toilet training and choses to toilet outside when the door is left open. Nigh time is a work in progress, although he is a clever boy so will soon get the hang of it. He eats well and sleeps in the kitchen with another foster dog. He loves other dogs in the home and will definately need a friend to snuggle and play but who will set his boundaries as he can be very in your face with excitement.
We have been getting Simon used to the harness wearing and he has been out for walks/runs in the park, which he loves. It's all new to him so he's full of excitement and gambling around like a lamb. On meeting dogs outside he is more cautious and backs away when approached by one, big or small. He is on a long line at the moment to get him used to the new experiences.
Simon is a typical bouncy boy, Pug x Beagle, He's in to everything and will need an active home with a similar doggy friend whose playful but happy to let him snuggle too. He would really benefit from someone home a lot who wants and likes to train a dog going to puppy classes would be a necessity or something similar to keep his busy brain working in a positive way.
In general Simon is a sweet natured active young dog, who needs plenty of time spent with him exercising and training. He so wants to be loved and watches when I fuss my dogs. He really wants to join in but is just not brave enough. We have been able to stroke him when he's snuggled with another dog for courage. Simon has the kindest loving eyes and a curly Pug tail. If your used to active dogs like training, can give this lovely boy the love and patience he deserves don't pass him by. Fill his application form below.

Simon moved into foster with us a few days ago, after taking advantage of his previous fosterers very good natured small dogs and overwhelming them with his pure zest for life!
Simon, or Sennen as he is known here, is almost pretty much how you would expect an 8 month old youngster to be! He loves other dogs, to the point that he forgets his doggy manners and has to be reminded by both our resident dogs and myself to play in a more gentlemanly like fashion!
Sennen loves to play with toys and can happily amuse himself with toys/chews although they do have to be able to withstand his serious chomping skills, and he will collect and adapt items he finds.
When accompanied by a confident dog(s), Sennen walks alongside busy roads without a murmur, paying no heed to buses, motorbikes and other traffic. In the house with our dogs, he follows us around, prefering to be in the same room as we are and likes to be a part of the goings on.
When spending time in Sennens company it is very easy to forget that he is handshy, because he is so confident in all other areas when with his doggy friends. He will take treats/toys out of our hands and sleep near a human on the sofa. It is only when we go to stroke him that he shows that his level of trust in people is not yet fully there as he will dart away. However he will now if settled on the sofa with our dogs let us stroke him, not always moving away as long as the interactions are kept brief.
Sennens perfect home would be with active and fun people, with at least one 'bomb proof' resident dog who is larger then himself who will play and let him cuddle in but also give him firm but fair boundaries on acceptable doggy ettiquette.
Sennen is a fun, energetic chap who just needs time and patience to help him fully overcome his distrust of people/hands. At this time Sennen would be better in a cat/small furry free home.

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.
