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.

08-08-20 June has come to us with her sister Jenny all the way from Romania. A group in Austria had stepped in to help rescue their mother, leaving the two dogs behind. We have agreed to help them and give them the chance of a new life here in the UK. June is a shut down, confused girl who has not seen much in her life so far. She has never lived in a home  but she is easy to handle and has accepted us approaching her, and holding her although she is very clearly frightened of us. June needs a lot more interaction with people and to be shown lots of love. She needs time, patience and someone who is experienced with worried dogs. She will need a home without small children as she would find them too, much to cope with. She will need a kind dog in her new home to show her all about housetraining and other home skills as she has never had a home to call her own. She is passported

Yesterday the rescue centre was bustling ... a happy hive of activity! All the dogs - including the new arrivals - were busy running around, barking, playing, wagging their tails, jumping up and down. All intrigued / happy / excited at being rescued; - with their living conditions and new lives ahead of them. Even the more nervous dogs were up and about playing with their fellow furry friends and having a great time - having a good nose! It was lovely to hear and see!
All, apart from two dogs in one kennel on my section. Kennel 20 was completely silent and still. I could see names on the board - Jenny and June and two bowls of food in the bedroom, so there were definitely dogs in there but I couldn't see or hear them. I entered their kennel and went to introduce myself. I think the pictures speak volumes.
The girls were hiding behind their beds. Laying on the cold hard floor. Their faces a painful looking expression of fear and worry. Their eyes were full of fear and they looked so very sad. Their bodies were rigid and they seemed too scared to even move away from me. I spoke softly, I offered them my hand, I did stroke them, and hoped I came across as un-threatening as I could possiblycould. To me, it was as though these two beautiful girls - these two beautiful living beings - hadn't lived at all or experienced anything in life. They definitely hadn't been shown any love  and I felt as though they'd had their spirit trampled on, and their souls.  They looked so depressed and like they'd given up on all hope of living a happy life. Harsh I know, but true. They were so sad and made me feel so sad for them too.
All the dogs at the centre go outside to play 4 times a day on average. These girls could only cope with going out once. They spent their half hour just cowering in the corner together.  They had a nose at the big sandschool, but the big outside open world is just too scary for them! So they cuddled together in the corner of the corridor.  I compared them to all the other scared dogs on my section - whose tails lifted, and who leapt and bounded around once they went outside to play. Afterwards though, Jenny and June did sit and lay down so we could see them but when I went over to say hello to them, they'd look up at me so sad and desparately worried. They took themselves away from me, retreated into their bedroom, and curled up into balls to hide their faces.
A little later on Sylvia told us their story.  Jenny and June had been rescued along with their Mum and other siblings, from a local hell hole in Romania, but had since been abandoned and left behind, being thought of as "not pretty". They are the sisters no one wanted. Thank God for Simona and Sylvia who saved them and bought them all the way over here for a chance at experiencing a happy life.
We at Many Tears believe Jenny and June are beautiful on the outside as well as on the inside. We think they are unique and stunning. What do you all think? I can't wait for the day these girls discover happiness and learn what it is to feel loved, be accepted and lead a normal doggy life. Please can you all keep your fingers crossed for them. We will of course keep you updated with their progress.

I know a lot of you are following the progress of Jenny and June, so here’s an update on how June is getting on. We’ve started working with both of the girls more individually, as we feel it will benefit them to spend a bit of time away from each other.
Because they’re both still shy dogs, they’re feeding off each other’s nervous energy and it’s holding them back. So today was the first day of individual training, and I had the pleasure of working with my lovey June.
It seems June has chosen me as her person and is fairly comfortable around me. Before this morning I hadn’t seen her in 3 days, so when I got to her kennel she got very excited and even jumped up on my lap!!!! (Only for a brief couple of seconds, but she’s never done it before so it was amazing for me). I fussed her for a little while and then put her harness on to start her training. She’s very good at letting me put the harness on her and take it off, and it’s a good way to get her used to being handled. We started her harness training in one of our play yards, just because it’s completely secure and it was her first time - she’s not ready to go out onto the road yet. She walked next to me nicely, but would panic if the lead pulled. This is common with harness training, so I would just kneel down to her level and talk calmly to her. This worked really well, so then she’d get up and start walking by my side again. We repeated this process a few times and then I took the lead off her and allowed her to roam on her own - I didn’t want to push her too far on her first day!!
Even though June is comfortable around me, she is still very wary of new people. This week, every staff member is going to take a few minutes out of their day just to sit in her kennel with her, so she gets used to new people. Hopefully, this will make her realise that nobody is going to hurt her anymore!! It’s a long and hard process trying to get a very shut down and scared dog to trust you, but with perseverance, love and kindness you will be on your way. I love this little lady, and I will do everything I can to make sure she’s progressing at a pace that’s comfortable for her. June is looking for a forever home with a kind resident dog, no children, and owners who will put the time in with her. I promise you, the outcome will be so worth it!

June has come along way since I first started working with her and I am very proud of her for finding the confidence to start showing more of her personality. She is still nervous of new people, but once she starts to trust you she'll come up for a stroke and to have her lead put on. June now walks very well on a harness, although she will freeze for a moment if someone she doesn't know appears in her field of vision.
June will be a loving girl with time and patience, she adores her sister Jenny and seeks comfort from her in new situations. Jenny is the more confident of the two and has shown June the path to becoming a happier dog, so it would be incredible if someone were to wish to adopt both together; but they could be split.
June will need a home with no children and maybe not many visitors, for a while atleast, to allow her to settle with her forever family first.
I know that in the right home June will truly blossom, it'll just take time and understanding.

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.
