2-10-19 This dear sweet sprollie is a beauty but such a scared little girl. Kiva is too frightened to walk on the lead so she is going to need some patience to learn this. She likes the company of other dogs but hasn't played with any at all as she is just to worried about the world at the moment. She really will need to live with another kind and gentle dog or dogs in her new home and need owners who are experienced with dogs like her.  Kiva has no idea about house training but this will come with time, love and patience.

26-10-19 UPDATE

I’ve only been working with Kiva for 3 days, and the change in her is drastic. The first day I met her, she would cower to the floor as soon as I went near her and you could see the fear in her eyes. Now, she’s majorly come out of her shell. Kiva now wags her tail when she see’s me, she asks me for fusses, she gives me kisses, and she play bows in front of me.
She is kennelled with a cocker spaniel and a beagle, who she has now started playing with. She has also started to explore the world of toys! She gets very excited when she see’s me, and she is just starting to understand kind human touch.
When I fuss her, her tail wag does slow down, but it does not stop. When I stop fussing her, she edges towards me and asks for more. I’d say Kiva’s confidence with me is currently up to 50%, and that’s after only 3 days of me looking after her. She will still need a home with a resident dog or dogs, to help her confidence get to 100%.
She is an absolute sweetheart, in every way possible. She’s stunning, gentle, kind hearted, but she’s not had the best start to her life. She’ll need a special forever home, with people who will provide her with unlimited patience, love and kindness. If you think you could be those people, please come down to meet her. She really deserves a loving forever home.

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.
