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.

17-10-19 Lottie is a very special girl who needs a loving home. She has come from a home environment and is socialised, loves humans and is very friendly. Lottie loves to be outdoors enjoys beaches, countryside and a walk to the shops, cafes and pubs, she walks well on the lead either on her own or with other dogs, she travels well in the car and sleeps all night. She can be left for short periods of time with another dog for company.
Lottie has an abundance of nervous energy that manifests into obsessive behaviour when in the home environment. This behaviour can be vocal or by being on the move ie running backwards and forwards keeping herself busy and the focus of attention. For these reasons we are looking for a home with constant companions both humans and friendly dog/dogs who will take her for long walks, give her mental stimulation, be firm but fair and give her rules by which she can develop a routine to alleviate her anxiety. She is not suitable to live with children.
If you can give Lottie the confidence to lead a happy life, please ask for further information by filling in her application form.

26-10-19 UPDATE

Lottie as previously said is a very special schnauzer and has been in foster with me 6 weeks whilst her behaviour and requirements for future rehoming have been assessed.
Lottie is a very loving, highly sensitive anxious girl who is full of nervous energy, this is very apparent in her obsessive compulsive behaviour.
Lottie requires an experienced dog owner who has worked or owned difficult dogs, who can be firm and give Lottie boundaries and rules.
Lottie is a barker and when excited or wants attention she is not easily distracted from what she believes she wants whether this be treats or attention. Simple things like a conversation on the phone are difficult as Lottie will bark constantly for your attention. Therefore an urban environment with lots of nearby neighbours may be problematic due to excessive barking both in the home and outside the house.
Lottie is underweight and needs encouragement to eat she often sits on your knee like a child and is hand fed, she also has a short attention span and keeps herself busy running back and forth and around furniture all this is being worked on.
Lottie needs plenty of exercise to alleviate some of her anxiety and energy at least one long walk every day. Lottie also needs a companion, a grounded gentle dog older than her, who will teach Lottie how to be a dog.
Lottie requires a mature family who are around most of the time, who have an abundance of tolerance and patience but who don't work from home as Lottie will take up quite a bit of your time especially whilst she settles in.

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.
