Westerham , Kent

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.

01-10-19 Buster is a super sweet boy who is incredibly shut down, to the point he is too scared to pee or poo. He can not eat in front of you (it’s too much pressure).
He has been with me just under a week and he has moved once of his own accord. This poor little lad is just frozen. Unlike most exbreeders, he hasn’t even taken comfort from my own dogs. Saying all this he is a super kind little dog. Even though he is so terrified he never does anything wrong. He takes no comfort from me, but does love a snuggly bed. At this precise moment he is too scared to move but at some point this will turn to flight.

What we need:
He is going to need an incredibly safe home, with somebody who can give him time. He most definitely need another dog. I do believe he will eventually pair up with another dog that will help him learn.
His new owners MUST be prepared for the long haul (although not hard, he will need a lot of time to trust). He has known nothing nice in life. It’s utterly heartbreaking.
They must also be happy to listen, these shut down little dogs need a special approach.

What you’ll get:
Given the time you will have the most incredible bond with an absolute sweetheart of a dog. The relationship, trust and love you’ll eventually get back will be like no other.
If you have time.
If you have love
If you want to help a ghost of a dog
Please ask about Buster

13-10-19 UPDATE

Buster has come a long way, but still has a long journey ahead too.

The big steps forward:
Buster will now take a few steps on a lead
He will eat in the same room as us
He plays with my dogs
He loves a cuddle on the sofa
He is 99.9% house trained now
He is great with my cats
He has found a few toys and had a small play with them

The journey ahead:
He still finds it incredibly hard with visitors (this can send him backwards) and it’s not realistic that no one will ever visit but his new adopted MUST be aware that these are potential bolt situations.
He is going through a puppyhood time that he has missed so when brave is wanting to play and chew (his bed)

What he needs:
Buster MUST have a confident resident dog
A very secure garden in a quiet location
A quiet home will enable him to progress
Somebody who is happy to listen and take advice
A super careful owner who will take no risks

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.
