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.

14-10-19 Leo is a young jackapoo who has found his way to us from a home. He had come to us for being snappy and guarding but we have not seen much of that behaviour with us. He does love a cuddle and to be fussed all over. Leo will need an experienced home with people who are willing to to work with any problems should they arise as well as another dog or dogs to help him socialise.  Little Leo is apparently good with cats but we would need to carry out our own cat test to confirm this. Leo will need a nice friendly home where any children at the property are 10+ and dog savvy.

Yesterday a vets called. They had a poodle cross JRT aged only 8 months brought in to be to be put to sleep and asked could we take?  I was so full here I asked them to call others but no one wanted the dog. So he’s with us now and his name is Leo. He was a spoilt dog and the only dog  in a family with children and up to 6 weeks ago he never showed this behaviour at all. He is not castrated (but not for long!)
He needs a fair, firm and fun home or foster home with other dogs to also guide him which may help a lot. He’s a little chap, possibly mini agility type. He deserves this chance to show how good he can really be!

Leo is a complicated very attractive little dog. He has an abundance of energy and a zest for life. He was much loved but as he grew up he became dominant possessive and bit the owner on a number of occasions. She felt that her only alternative and the responsible thing to do was to put him to sleep. The kind vets contacted us and Leo's previous owner brought him to us, and of course as he was out of his depth Leo was charming, but we totally believe the story we were told.
We did kennel him with a beagle bitch and he was over the top dominant and ended up having to be parted. He is tricky because of his good looks and very happy demeanour people want to adopt him, but he really cannot afford to go through homes. We need a person to adopt who understands dogs like this, who is fair firm and fun. Possibly who have a small pack of agility collies or do canny cross. Certainly someone who thinks nothing of a five mile walk. He will a lot better with a lot of exercise, clear cut handling and training.
He is not a fist time dog owners partner. He has potential to be something very special, or to be a nightmare. Sylvia will want t6o interview any interested party herself as is worried for this dogs future. The staff have worked very hard with him, and we hope he is going to have a very happy ever after very soon.

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.
