12-09-2019 - Eagle is a 2 year old collie who has come to MTAR to find his home. Eagle is a skittish boy who is nervous. Poor Eagle will try to be brave and approach you but he is still very unsure. As Eagle is so shy he will cower if you go to touch him. Eagle walks well on a lead and would like to go to a home with another dog who can show him about housetraining and give his confidence a much needed boost. In time he will thrive in a collie savvy active home

Eagle is a lovely boy, although still nervous he is approachable and after a short while,comes around to you and allows you to smooth him. He is initially nervous but has improved since coming to MT. He does much better when around his kennel mates so he would suit a collie savvy home with another dog to teach him the ways of the home.
He walks lovely on the lead and is very attentive like most collies are. The main thing he needs is time to heal, time to understand people are not there to harm him but to protect him and show him love and he is definitely coming around to understanding. Could you give this beautiful boy his much deserved forever home?

Eagle is progressing quite well here and has turned out to be an absolute gentleman of a dog.  He was kenneled with a Dogue de Bordeaux and got on great with her and played a lot but he's now kenneled with a little French Bulldog who he gets on really well with and he even lets her sit on him!  He has also been kennelled ith a little Jackapoo pup and graciously put up with that busy little man.
Eagle walks lovely on the lead and goes out walking with public and is getting braver at meeting new people and now lets them stroke him, but he will drop to the ground if you put your hand out too quickly. He still has that nervousness about him and will need a confident resident dog to live with the show him how much fun life can be.

13-11-19 UPDATE

Eagle has and still is progressing in confidence since he first arrived back in mid September but he still has a few nervous issues. Although confident to walk on a lead he cowers when you put the lead on. He now shares his kennel with another collie called Meg as he such a good boy he can be homed with most dogs. He’s been with both large and small dogs so homing him with a dog of any size will be perfect and, as he’s still not confident enough, another dog is a must for Eagle. He will still need house training but he does prefer to go out. If you are looking for a collie, he is defiantly worth meeting.

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.
