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 Avon is a 4 year old male Yorkie. He has a passport that states he is 4 yrs old but we believe he may be older. Avon has come to us from a breeder. He is a very nervous little man, but give him a chance and he'll be a very loyal and wonderful companion. He will need to be homed with another dog already in the home to show him all about home skills such as housetraining. Avon is a small boy, which just adds to how sweet he is. Avon needs time and care to come out of his shell. He has a passport

15-11-19 UPDATE
Avon or Ernie as he is know here is a tiny boy who needs an owner who has experience of nervous dogs, poor Ernie has in the past had his jaw broken in two places, so he is understandably nervous of human touch at the moment, but I am slowly building his trust. His jaw doesn’t bother him at all but he does need to eat soft food .
Ernie needs a home with a dog that will take him under their wing, he loves to snuggle up with other dogs so needs a dog who will allow this, he would also love a little dog who would play as Ernie has just started to find his playfulness.
He sleeps through the night on the sofa cuddled up with two tiny chihuahuas.
He knows nothing of walking on a harness or the outside world at the moment.
He will need a extremely secure garden as he is so tiny . 
Ernie is going to be a real little character he just needs patience and love. 
This boy has had such a rough start in life he so deserves a chance of happiness.

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.
