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.

5-9-19 Lisa has come to us from a breeder. She is a bit unsure of humans at the moment but enjoys a fuss when in your arms but just not quite brave enough to approach you to say hello.  Lisa  will need another dog to help bring her out of her shell and help her to learn about house training.  She does walk a little on a lead but needs more practice.  In the right home and a with a bit of time, love and patience she will blossom into a wonderful little friend.

Lisa is beautiful, she is still a bit timid, when I went to see her today she tried her best to come over, she got pretty close but not enough for me to touch her, but she doesn't know me at the moment, so hopefully in time this will change.
Lisa will need to have another dog in her new home to teach her all that she needs to know about being loved and enjoying her new life, she will need time and patience, but we don't think it will take her long ones she starts to see that we don't want to hurt her.

Here is Lisa. A very petite little shih Tzu who is just getting used to living with people. She loves other dogs, but only really likes humans if they’re on her level. Oh and if they’ve got something to eat. Lisa has a lovely temperament. She doesn’t like being on the floor when the other dogs are on the settee so I lift her up and then she’s happy. She likes to cuddle up to the other dogs, especially at night when they go to bed, when she has to be carried upstairs. Lisa isn’t fully housetrained. I keep a couple of puppy pads by the back door, which she does use and upstairs. She does not walk on a lead. Everything has to be taken slowly and patiently with Lisa as sudden moves startle her. Lisa needs somebody in her life that is very, very patient and is willing to work with her to overcome her fears and show her how wonderful life can be and the adventures that she is missing.

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.
