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 Little Lizzy has come to us from a breeder. Poor little Lizzy is afraid of human touch and goes  stiff when we try to handle her and clearly doesn't understand at the moment that we are here to help. Lizzy is going to need a home experienced with scared dogs and without children where she will be given time to settle into life with people.  She needs plenty of love and handling and with gudiance from a resident dog or dogs she should start to come out of her shell. If you have plenty of time, love and paitence to offer Lizzy this will be repaid tenfold as once she knows she is loved she will transform into a wonderful little friend.

07-11-19 UPDATE
Lizzy is starting to come out of her shell in her foster home.  She loves my dogs and snuggles up happily with my own 2 girls. She is however still frightened of me and runs away when I walk towards her.
Lizzy’s house training is coming on well and she now has very few accidents. She has not started her harness and lead training yet. She will need a very secure garden as she loves to explore and will jump on flower pots to get over fences given half a chance, so for this reason I think she would need a home with at least a 5 foot solid fence with no gaps, and nothing near the fence to let her get any higher than ground level.

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.
