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.


07-03-20 Unfortunately little Leo has had to be returned due to a issue that occurred due to him guarding. Leo is a lovely little lad but does have issues that mean he would need to go to an adult only home with people who have had experience with dogs of his nature. Leo walks on a lead and is house trained he sleeps through the night and just loves going out in the car. Any potential adopters will need to have a good chat with us and the fosterers just to make sure he's the perfect fit for there family as we don't want to see this little man bouncing in and out of potential forever homes.

We've been doing a little agility with Leo so he had something different to occupy his time, rather than just a walk. You could tell by his face that he absolutely loves it, and I think by training him for agility, either for fun or competition, it will focus him, get him to listen and train him to do what you'd like him to do rather than what he wants. If you're interested he weighs just 5.25 kg and is 13" to the shoulder. He is a super little dog who just needs training to bring out the best in him and train out his bad bits. He's cuddly, he's happy and very bright and always gives a great welcome.

Leo spent time with a very experitenced fosterer to access his behaviour further in a household of dogs, cats and a child.   These are the findings.
Leo quickly attaches himself to people. He needs a very clear cut life. He would love to be an individual’s dog, but if he did we fear he would rule the roost (and not in a good way). He finds his spot to sleep and then can be very guardy and will bite. The smaller the bed the more he guards.
He has been living with collies and having excess exercise, and he loves the collies. He loves to play too. If he is in a strop he does not think about his actions, so he needs to live with a well-rounded dog or dogs who will ignore his poor behaviour that can arise.
He is NOT a first time dog owners dog or a family with your children's dog. He is very liveable with, and seeing him run and play and enjoy walks will give someone a lot of pleasure, BUT he does have to be managed.
If naughty removing him carefully and safely and giving him time out is the only way that works for him. He really needs the right home, but PLEASE do not apply unless you can really help him live a happy active life. He would thrive biking running and any activity that requires energy, and brains as this is a super clever dog.

 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.
* Many Tears uses Vanguard to vaccinate their dogs.  However, this can sometimes be difficult to source at local vets so if you are adopting a dog or puppy that has only had one vaccination please be aware your vets may require you to start the course from the beginning.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
