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.

18-10-19 Trina is a  female Shih Tzu, who has come to us from a breeder. We think she may be  older than the two years that we were told she is. Trina has come to us very nervous and scared, and runs when you approach her. She will need another dog in the home to help keep her calm, show her housetraining and teach her that humans aren't all so scary! She has a very sad face, and is very confused at her new surroundings. Trina will need a kind, quiet and loving home, experienced with nervous dogs. Even though she is nervous, she is a very sweet girl and with the right love, will come out of her shell. She has a passport

Trina has taken quite a long time to settle in with the people in the house. Dogs are not a problem with her though, she's very playful and cheeky. She's slow to walk on a harness and she still has accidents in the house. She has a neurologicical issue that makes her move funny but this doesn't affect her running, she just looks odd but she gets around where she needs to go! She's cheeky with food and with bark at you sometimes playfully for a treat now. She has made huge progress but she really is a rather special little dog.

Trina is a sweet and gentle soul who has been with us for quite some time now. How this lovely girl still hasn’t got a home yet I’ll never know. In foster Trina has been living with small dogs, Trina would need to be homed with other dogs to boost her confidence. In foster Trina has gained to trust people again but she is still a little bit nervous with fast movements. Trina is a very playful cheeky little character but is a lovely girl with lots of love to give.

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.


Although TRINA is by donation rather than the full adoption fee, we ask for a minimum donation of £150 to help cover our costs. All 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. 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. 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.
