04-10-19 Bexley is an 11 month old male Shih Tzu. He has never been beyond his breeders and is worried about his new surroundings. He loves his Kennel friends, and is the most quiet of the lot. Despite being the quietest, he is still wonderfully happy and bright. He will need a kind dog in his new home to help him learn about housetraining, walking on  lead and other home skills he has never needed before. He needs time, patience and love.

Bexley is one of the three cheeky shihtzu brothers on my section. He is the biggest of the three, so I like to call him the big brother. He acts like it too. Bexley is the most mature of the three and his two siblings definitely look up to him.
When Bexley first came to my section he was a shy little boy who was afraid of eveything. He would not like to be picked up, or even touched, wasn't walking on a harness, did not play, and would bark at me whenever I walked past his kennel.
How he has changed ... Bexley is a joy to be around now. He is now the most confident of the three brothers and loves attention! When I go into the kennel he is the first to start chasing me and jumping up for attention. He loves a fuss now, and is more than happy to be picked up and cuddled. All three boys have grown in confidence and they now go flying out to the play yard to exert all their energy. And boy do they love to play! Bexley and Bluesie love to play with toys, with Bexley chasing after the toys in a crazed fashion, whilst Bluesie picks them up and runs away. They are hilarious to watch. When I'm in the yard with them they will follow me everywhere. If I run, they run, if I stop, they stop, and when I sit down ... They jump all over me. Bexley tries to kill me with kisses as he pounces all over me trying to reach my face.
Bexley was also the first of the boys to start walking on a harness, and now he has improved so much we walk up and down the road on a regular basis. He is still a little hesitant with new people on the end of the lead, but will walk along slowly. He can also be a little jumpy with loud noises, and isn't too keen on cars, but he does love people when out, and will always try to go say hello!
It's time for these boys to get out to their loving homes now (either separately or together) as they are still young and haven't yet experienced home life. It wouldn't take them long to settle down and they would make whoever has them extremely happy, I guarantee it.

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.
