18-10-19 Talbot is a 6 year old female Shih Tzu, who has come to us from a breeder. She is very nervous and doesn't understand that hopefully - soon she will have a forever home! She is confused with her new surroundings. She loves to cuddle up to her kennel mates, and will love another dog her size in her forever home to cuddle up to and show her all about housetraining and other home skills. Because of her worries, she doesn't like being held, but will soon learn that with being held, comes fusses and love. Talbot will need a quiet home and someone super patient to help her.

01-11-19 UPDATE
This little girl (she only weighs 5.9kg) is an absolute sweetie and a pleasure to foster. She gets on well with the other dogs, sleeps quietly all night in her crate and loves her food and cuddles.
House training is ongoing and she  needs to be reminded to go out. . She's had a bath (didn't enjoy that!), but was fine to be clipped/groomed. The next stage of her journey will be to wear a harness and walk on a lead, but I'm sure she'll enjoy her walks because she's very nosey!
She will need a home with another friendly and playful dog as she does like to play with mine.  So if you want a loving, quite confident girl with a slightly dodgy haircut, please apply.

20-11-19 UPDATE

Talbot has settled really well in foster and is now able to go for walks, which she absolutely loves. 
She sits quietly and waits to have her harness put on with the other dogs and then trots round on the walk close to your side without pulling.  She likes to curl up in front of the wood burner on these cold evenings and sleeps with one of my dogs overnight (they usually curl up together).  She has a lovely personality, full of fun, but also very kind.  Someone will be very lucky to adopt her.


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.
