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.

31-10-19 Ted is an older Male shihtzu, who has come to us from a breeder. This confident man already walks on the lead! Ted is quite a grumbly old boy, and definitely likes things on his own terms. He has the potential to be an only dog, and a wonderful little companion once he feels more secure but will need someone with experience with temperamental dogs and we will not home him with children. Ted has a lot of character and absolutely adores a fuss. He will need to learn about house training and in time this little lad will love his new life of kindness.

13-11-19 UPDATE

Even though Ted is definitely a stubborn boy, he still let me dry his belly with a towel today!
I’ve been working with him for just over a week now and he’s definitely come around to me, first off I think he wasn’t quite sure. He is such a big handsome lad, walks wonderful on the lead and does a little bounce when he goes out! He does go up to people and loves a fuss but only when he wants to. Being approached can sometimes provoke him and make him bark so best to let him come to you. Unfortunately Ted does not interact very well with other dogs, he can be very dominant and likes to tell them it’s his way or no way. He might get on with another dog in the house but they would have to be watched very closely to make sure Ted doesn’t push them around. But I do think he would make an excellent only dog, even if he isn’t too fussed on being a lap dog he is so handsome I’m sure people won’t mind.
We need an experienced owner who knows how to deal with aggressive dogs for our big boy but I really hope he finds his home soon, he totally deserves it.

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.

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.
