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.

3-10-19 Vera has come to us from a breeder.  She is very worried about people but she is okay to be picked up. She is an extremely sweet natured girl who will need at least one other kind and confident resident dog in her new home.who she can watch and copy.  This will help her with things like house training and lead walking.  Despite her worries Vera is very bright and inquisitive so with time, love and patience we think she will soon settle.

10-11-19 UPDATE

Vera is known as Ruby in her foster home and although not having been here a week yet, is enjoying her new found freedom. She is still skittish when faced with new situations but trusts us enough to come for reassurance and is happy to be picked up .
Ruby walks on a harness but is not overly confident and will need more practice in quiet areas away from other people and noise. She weighs about 11kg and is clean in the house but has open access most of the time and is taken out regularly.
Ruby sleeps soundly all night in a covered crate and has to be persuaded to get up in the morning! Sometimes she takes herself off on little adventures round our fields but always comes back, usually with her friend, a big boy Cav.
She will need a friend of active Spaniel type, probably male and long walks in open spaces. She loves being out in the garden so will need a decent sized space with some grass areas.
Ruby is not happy with children about but mixes with all the other dogs here. Ideally she needs someone prepared to give her time and with patience to help her with new life. She is a lovely , gentle Cocker who will be a devoted companion when she settles.

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.
