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.

05-09-19 River came to us from a breeder. They are all such beautiful cute little girls. River is so gentle and loves the company of other little doggies. She is a little unsure with humans at the moment and tends to shy away. She will have to be homed with another dog to bring her out of her shell and help her learn new skills like housetraining and how to walk on a lead. With love and patience she will thrive.

17-10-19 UPDATE
This lovely girl is starting to show her personality since she has been here. She was very thin but is filling out with a treat or two and chicken dinners - she loves her food and is always at the front of the group at treat time. After 5 weeks River will sit quietly on my lap to groomed- even closing her eyes. She loves to play with my chi and has found her voice. .but she is still nervous of sudden movements . A quiet home with a playmate, plenty of love and routine to help her settle in will be what she needs. This sweet girl deserves a permanent home free from worry.

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.
