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 Maggie is a beautiful girl who has come all the way from Romania to find a home.She has heartworm which we are treating but she will need to continue with medication for this which we will fully discuss with her adopters. She is a nervous girl who has never yet lived in a home and will need lots of kindness and patience to help her adjust to the idea of living indoors. She is a nervous girl who is sweet but very unsure at the moment. She is timid and is going to need the help of another dog to boost her confidence and help her learn all about housetraining and other home skills. She has so much potential, she just needs lots of time and patience to help her adjust to her new life. She is passported 

19-09-20 UPDATE
I've not written Maggie's update before now as I wanted to give her a little time to settle into her foster home and find her feet after traveling so far.
Maggie is more than a little shy and has needed a safe place to go to. Which was behind the sofa. We have removed access to it now to just take her out of her comfort zone or I don't think she would have decided to leave has made her nervous again but confident in another.
With me she gets very excited to see me and you see her relax waggy tail and a huge smile on her face initiating play. She can get spooked if I stroke her at times and other times she will roll on her back in a very submissive pose when I initially stroked her like this she would wee herself this has stopped but to me it gives an indication of how scared humans make/made her.
With my husband she is more cautious. When someone comes to the door she is becoming more nosey and is joining in with my rabble to see who it is. ... although they haven't taught her to bark at the knock yet (give it more time and she will)
I can now harness her to walk her. I also use a slip lead. This is a must at the moment because cars, people walking by and cyclists can make her try and get away. We are getting to the point where she stops watches them without reacting and waits for them to pass. But when calm she walks brilliantly. Maggie will chew through her leads if she has access to them so only put them on if you are heading out the door. But does get very excited when she sees them coming out the cupboard
Maggie loves food, she will take treats from my hand then runs to her bed to eat them.
Maggie is currently sharing her home with 4 other female dogs of similar size if not slightly smaller. She doesn't like to share her space with them or her bed and can snap at them. Unlike the ex breeders needing others to show them how to be, Maggie's experience with other dogs has probably been quite tense being small and slight I could imagine she would have been picked on and has had to defend her space from others. It would be great if she had a dog friend to show her the play side but equally she could go as an only dog.
Maggie is currently living with children 7 and 11 but she is finding it overwhelming and would be better suited to an adult only home.
Maggie is a beautiful girl with extremely soulful eyes who with time will come into her own and will be a fab companion, the glimpse I've seen in this short space is that she can learn to trust you and you will get something back. She has a fabulous silly side where she looks extremely happy and a helicopter wagging tail. Which I love seeing.

 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.
* 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.
