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.

07-09-2019 Meg is a slightly timid girl but has a lovely temperament.  She is uncertain about us as she knows nothing about kindness and love but we can already see there is now a slight spark in her eyes as she is starting to realise that life is getting better.  Meg is already learning to walk on a lead and we think she will come along quickly. Meg will need and active home where she gets plenty of exercise and gets to use her brain.  She will need another dog or dogs in her new home to help her adjust to living in in a home and this will also help her with house training.

We only took Meg for a couple of walks when we were volunteering, but her photos really don't do her justice.  She has a way of looking up into your face as if she is aching to be able to trust.  Although she is nervous, she walks very well on the lead and wasn't too bothered by traffic,  She would probably need another dog to give her confidence but I feel she is one of those dogs who will be an inseperable friend once she learns to trust.

29-10-19 UPDATE

When I first met Meg she was quite a timid girl she didn't really come up to me and would back away, since then she has come out of her shell she really enjoys being fussed and is very gentle, loving and sweet.
Meg walks great on a lead but does tend to look up at you maybe for some reassurance that everything is okay, she can be an only dog if not left alone to long she will need an adult only home that have experience with collies.
Meg needs someone who will work with her and with the right guidance she is going to be the perfect companion for someone very lucky!! She can also go with another dog but will need to be seperated at food time, having had to fight for her food all her life and not knowing whether she will still have to fight feels the need to guard her food to make sure she doesn't go hungry again.
Meg's life started off a lonely one there was no love for this beautiful girl, no one to show her a kind hand and with her life being so empty she had no hope of a happy future.... until now! This is just a stop gap for Meg until she finds her special someone, someone who can finally give her all that has been lacking so far in her life. Being here she is finally starting to open up, putting her trust in humans maybe for the first time in her life.
If you can be Meg's special someone come and meet her, spend some time with this gentle soul and maybe let her into your heart, reading about her is nothing compared to meeting her she is just beautiful!!

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.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

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