20-09-2019 - Jaxxy is a 3 year old bichon who has come to us from a breeder. He is a sweet boy who will need another dog in his new home to help him learn the ropes. He doesn't yet walk on a lead and has  not seen much of the world yet but with kindness, patience and a resident dog to follow he will soon begin to enjoy his new surroundings. He will need to learn all about housetraining, treats, walkies, cuddles and everything that is part of usual life inside a home. With time he settle, relax and thrive... he just needs someone to give him a chance.

Jaxxy (known as Jack in his foster home) has been in foster a week. He is extremely frightened but has made some progress this week. He is a quiet boy who spends a lot of time in his bed but really enjoys being out in the garden. He is friendly with my dogs but very frightened of humans. He will bolt out of the way if I come towards him. He will freeze if I stroke him but is never aggressive just dips his head away.
We have been working on toilet training this week rather than harness training and he is doing well with only the occasional accident. He is clean in his sleeping area at night. For Jack food is a great motivator so should be easier to train. He takes hand held treats gently before running back to his bed. He does need supervision when having his dinner as would finish every dogs dinner if he was allowed. This is a good boy, with great potential just waiting for the right home .

Jack has made tiny steps forward in the last two weeks.  Although he will still run away if he thinks I am coming towards him he does now follow me around the house as long as he thinks I’m not watching and he does little nose touches on the back of my leg as long as I don’t turn around.  He sleeps well and remains clean over night but does do the occasional wee in the house.  We are working on touch and harness wearing at the moment.  He is still food motivated but tends to eat his dinner after I walk away.   If any visitors come he darts straight to his bed and shakes until they gone.  Jack needs a quiet home to help him progress over time.

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.
