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.

06-02-18  Daisy was adopted 18 months ago but has sadly been returned.  Daisy suffers from a common condition in dogs who have saggy or thick lips and/or droopy jowls and is called lip fold dermatitis. It is not present all the time and is controllable with an owner who will make sure her dental hygiene is kept up.  Daisy is completely clean and dry in the house but is on low medication for slight urinary incontinence which is easy to give and inexpensive.
Since being adopted Daisy has gained huge confidence and is now very fit and active - she has definitely found her inner spaniel and loves a cuddle! However, she will still need another dog as we have tried her on her own in kennels and she was very distressed so she is now happilly sharing with others.  She will most likely latch onto the woman in her new home but is OK with men. Once she knows who she is with she is reliable off the lead but this would need to be built up with her new owner. She is used to a crate in the rear of the car. She has met her previous owners very young grandchildren and she is fine and has stayed in a household with a cat, ignoring it.

Daisy has come into foster and is so pleased to be back in a home. She remembers her house training, is good on walks, and loves to cuddle on someone's lap or near you on her bed. The lip dermatitis seems completely better, but her new owner needs to keep an eye open for any recurrence. She's been to the groomer for a pamper session as she had some matted fur.
Daisy is a sweet girl who knows "sit" and dances on her back legs when she gets excited. She barked a bit at night initially, but as soon as she was allowed to sleep in the bedroom she was happy to stay quietly on her own bed all night. She has been good with all the other dogs in her foster home and needs a doggy friend in her new home. Now she has her new hairstyle I'm sure she will catch someone's eye, so don't delay filling in that form!

Daisy has been in her foster home for a few weeks and her personality is showing through. She is sweet, affectionate and responsive and wants to be near her person all the time. Because of this she can get a little possessive and has growled at our elderly dog a few times. This situation is very easy to manage with kind but firm guidance, so an experienced home is needed for her, or one without smaller or elderly other dogs. She has been absolutely fine with the bigger, fit dogs here, not growling at all and being polite and respectful to them.
Daisy loves her walks and travels well in the car. Her recall is good and she sits nicely for treats. She's lively and loves to chase balls in the garden. Daisy has been fine with the man in her foster home, although she does seem to prefer women. She is a very pretty girl and will make a loyal and loving companion. Her favourite thing is snuggling up with her person so she would do best where she's not left much. Do you have space on your lap for this darling girl?

Daisy is still waiting for her forever family to find her. She ideally needs a home where any resident dog is bigger than she is (she's a petite cocker at 12kg) although she was fine with a visiting pug cross, or with people who are confident and experienced enough to redirect any growling. In all other ways Daisy really is a very easy dog to have about. She'll snooze while I'm working, sleeps quietly in her own bed in our bedroom, is clean and dry in the house (she's on medication for urinary incontinence but as long as this is given there is no problem), gets on with dogs, cats, chickens and people big and small. She doesn't like being left on her own so she needs a doggy friend unless her people are literally around all the time. She'd suit an active retired couple or a family as she is fit and energetic, but easily exercised as she enjoys playing fetch. If you have the time for this beautiful girl, she will repay you with complete loyalty and love.

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. 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.
