03-10-19 - Caira is a beautiful little Bichon who has come from a breeder. She is a very happy playful and waggy girl. While she has initial nerves with people and handling she soon loves the attention. She has a fair few missing teeth which doesnt affect her at all and her eyes are beginning to get a little cloudy but she manages fine. Caira is still very much a puppy at heart and is so ready for her forever home. She will need a kind dog to show her about housetraining and walking on a lead. Please consider this little girl. Caira has a passport.

25-10-19 UPDATE
Caira (called Cally) has been in foster for nearly 2 weeks and is doing so well, she is a happy girl who's tail hasn't stopped wagging since she has arrived. Caira is initially very shy with strangers but it doesn't take her long to get over this.  House training is going well and she is pretty good at making it known she wants to go out. Caira has yet to experience lead walking but I hope to start this shortly.  Caira will need an easy going resident dog to live with, one who wont mind her trying to grab all the limelight or sitting on top of them if she wants to share their bed although she is happy to be in a bed on her own as well.
Caira would like a home where someone was around most of the day and a home with older children wouldn't be a problem as long as they take it slow with her. Caira currently sleeps on the bed with the rest of the dogs at night so potential adopters will need to take this into consideration if their resident dog sleeps elsewhere and will need to work with Caira on this.
If you have the time and patience to help this beautiful soul become a valued member of your family please apply.

17-11-19 UPDATE
Caira is doing really well in foster and nearly has us house trained. She know's when she needs out and when she doesn't and in typical Bichon fashion will not go out until she is ready. Caira is still very shy with strangers and will hide when new people come in so any prospective adoptor will have to be prepared for this when they meet her and realise that once she gets to know them she will not be like this.
She is clean over night and sleeps lovely on the bed after having fuss time and kisses with you. She still is shy when eating and likes to be on her own with no one around although she will now eat at one end of the room if I am at the other end. She has now started to come when treats are being handed out and will wait patiently for her turn.
We have started walking but due to the weather this is going slowly. She isn't bothered by the harness but needs her confidence when out walking worked on but with regular work I don't think this will take long.
Caira will really thrive once she is in a forever home where she can get all the attention, therefore we are looking for a home with only one or two resident dogs, who are laid back and easy going. Someone home a lot of the time although she can be left for a while with resident dogs. Young children would worry her too much at this time so a home with older children or adult only home would be ideal. With patience and love this beautiful girl will give you so much love in return but it will take time so if you have the time, patience and love please apply and make her dream come true.

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.
