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 Tristant is a 6 month old Male Shih Tzu, who has come to us from a breeder. Tristant is a nervous boy, he will need to be homed where there is already a resident dog in the home, to keep him company and teach him how to live with people, and how to live in a home, copying new skills like housetraining. He is not very brave at all yet, and can't find the courage to come up for fusses. He doesn't walk on a lead, but is very easy to handle. With time, and love, Tristant will learn how to live in a home, and learn that people can be lovely. He has a passport.

28-10-19 UPDATE

Tristant is here in foster with his brother Ticket. Tristant is the smaller of the two boys and both have had a rough cut as they were quite matted.
Tristant is currently a little wary of humans, but I think he will come around quickly. This morning he let me approach him and he enjoyed the fuss so much he nuzzled and patted me for more. Both boys are full of fun and mischief. They are into everything, just as any 6mth old puppy should be.
They’ve been gentle with myself and my children and could be homed with dog savvy children of 10+, happily approach my own dogs and are intrigued by my cat and chickens - they aren’t quite sure what to do with them yet.
They are beginners with house training and lead training won’t begin until after their 2nd vaccinations. Tristant will need another friendly dog in the home to help him settle, he really doesn’t like to be left alone. He is currently crated with his brother overnight and when I go out and they are quiet and clean in their crate. However, I think Tristant would struggle being in a crate alone.

04-11-19 UPDATE

Now his brother has gone to his new home, Tristant is learning to be alone in his crate overnight and when we go out. I think he’s doing quite well, even though he’s been rather sad.
Tristant is quite shy and a little reserved about coming forward for attention, but once in your arms he does enjoy a fuss. He also likes to sit on the sofa with us in the evening. He’s very playful and would like another dog in the home to be friends with.
House training is still a work in progress and this is likely to still need work on when he moves to his new home. We haven’t yet started lead training as he’s only just had his 2nd vaccinations. Tristant approaches other dogs in a friendly, slightly reserved way and is a very gentle boy.

10-11-19 UPDATE
Tristant is a very playful pup and will need a playmate in his new home. He’s a friendly boy who is only occasionally worried now. He’s sleeps quietly in his crate, but gets very excited when he hears anyone getting up in the morning. He likes to come and sit on the sofa for a snuggle, but usually moves off after a while to find his own space. His house training is coming along slowly, but it’s still a work in progress. He’s a lovely friendly boy and full of fun and mischief.

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.
