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.

26-06-20 Leila was found abandoned in a field in Romania as a small puppy. She has been waiting for someone to find her and give her a forever home, but sadly no home came for her. She is quite a large breed, so nobody wanted to adopt her.  Leila is very scared and needs an experienced home without children.  There is not a nasty bone in her body she is simply extremely scared and not used to receiving love and attention. She is the sweetest girl who really deserves to catch a break in her hard life. Now she has travelled to us in search of her forever home, we're hopeful she won't be waiting too long. All Leila wants in life is a family of her own to love and cherish her and show her what home life is all about. Leila has a passport.Leila will need a resident dog already living in the home.

Leila is coming out of her shell as the days go by, she is now walking great on a harness and really loves being out enjoying all the new smells. I have only worked with her a few times but I can see the difference in her from when she first came to the rescue. When she knows you she will take treats from you and gets very playful she is amazing. Leila is going to make the perfect companion! She has already come so far and with that extra bit of love and routine from home life she will just keep growing in confidence.

I met Leila for the first time yesterday and she really is a sweet beautiful girl. I had to spend some time with her and her kennel friend Willy before trying to interact with her. Just sitting down and not paying her much attention at first made my visit easier to take in. She was more relaxed once she could see I wasn't a threat to her and had no intention of stealing her nibbles... I have passed the outside of her kennel on a couple of occasions before, but being a stranger in her area she would (along with some of the other dogs - yes, I do look dodge..) warn me vocally not to bring any ill will. Like most of the Romanians dogs here, she has started to build a level of trust with one or two staff members that she knows well and finds it a bit challenging accepting new people into her circle of trust so soon. She was wary of me putting a lead around her to start with but once we took our time navigating our way out of the rescue she slowly gained confidence being outside in a less claustrophobic and noisy environment. Leila now walks well on a lead and cars passing by slowly don't seem to faze her but loud sudden noises do startle her. As you can see in the video, the longer we walked the more happy she looked in herself. Good times. She just needs time and patience and the bond she is going to develop with her new mum or dad will surely be inseparable. Leila is going to need someone with experience of dogs to a similar background to hers and who can work with her on the things that might be a challenge at first, including settling into a home for the first time. She will need another brother or sister at home to help support her and learn from. Please consider Leila if you feel you have the right home and what she needs/deserves in her new chapter.

Once you get to know Leila you find she's a loving affectionate girl. I didn't need to spend much time with her before she let me stroke her under the chin and then we were soon back scratching. However, I have worked with Leila so she knew me. An adopter coming to meet her will need to understand she will take a little time to come around. She loves playing with her kennel mates so a playful canine companion would really suit her. I really like Leila and she is not so much nervous, she's more quite unsure of herself. I know she'd soon grow in confidence once in a home. She's a very pretty unusual looking girl and I think she's quite special.

Leilas progress since arrival is proof that with love and kindness, even the most traumatised dogs can regain trust. She has gone from being very difficult to even touch, to literally jumping on and playing with me, allowing me to cuddle her and walking well on just a slip lead. Despite this she still has her fears which will be present for a long time, when on walks she still becomes skittish if approached by a person, or indeed at the passing of a vehicle.
Leila is incredibly playful with other dogs and her ideal friend would be a very playful larger male, she can on occasion be selective of what dogs she is happy to share her kennel with, but she has been great with every larger male she's been introduced to. Leila needs a calm environment and a lot of love and patience in order to progress further, she needs a very secure property and the guidance of another big dog, if you think you have the right home for her, please consider filling in an application form for her.


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.
