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.

04-10-19 Boco is a male Shih Tzu. He is very nervous, but a very handsome young man.  He is kenneled with his siblings and is very happy with them. However he is frightened of people, sudden movements and loud noises. Despite that, this little man relaxes into your lap for cuddles. With the right home he will grow up to be a perfect new family member. He will need a kind dog to show him all about housetraining and walking on a lead.

31-10-19 UPDATE
Boco has nearly been here a month so will be a year old soon and although has started coming out of his shell he still has a way to go. He will come up to you but is still a little nervous so runs away. He's wearing a head collar which he's not best pleased with as him and his siblings were all neutered this week so all of them are bashing in to each other but it's not preventing them from having fun together. Due to how nervous he is at the moment he's yet to learn walking on a lead or house training and will need a home with a current resident dog to help him settle and give him the confidence to live with a human family. If this young man could be the dog for you and your family, please come down and meet this handsome fella.

16-11-19 UPDATE
Boco has settled in really well, he is a delightful little chap, still quiet nervous about anyone getting close to him, although he came up to me and licked my hand, so we are getting there.
He loves to play with my dogs, and is going in the garden to wee and poo.
He is a very handsome and gentle little chap, who will bring love and delight.

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.
