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.

17-03-2017 Chainie is a 3 year old female Beagle who has been given to us by her breeder to find a forever home. She is a lovely but very scared girl who has been a breeding girl all her life. She has known nothing of green fields, wonderful smells and the sunshine. She is much happier in the company of other dogs and she is used to the constant company of other dogs, so will need a canine companion in her new home to help her get used to the sights and sounds of everyday life and give her some much needed confidence. She will have never lived in a home before and will need help with housetraining and this will be easier if she can follow the example of a resident dog. At the moment she is too scared to walk on a lead but as she starts to settle we will gently introduce this to her. She will thrive in a home with a patient owner who would like to give her lots of love and patience to help her become a happy, confident pet. If you can offer Chainie the home that she really deserves then please apply as soon as possible and help her to take the next step into a better life. She has her own passport. She is by donation as our beagles find it harder to get a forever home.

Just over 5 weeks ago Chainie was a very scared dog. I think that she was a bit overwhelmed by a house and spent all her time either hiding in the hedge bottom or cowering in a corner of the garden; we had the devil’s own job getting her in at night.
She have come a long way in just a over a month and, although still quite timid, she is enjoying both life in general and being in a house. The call of ‘walkies’ brings her running, eager to have her lead put on, and she will launch out through the door eager to go exploring the world as she is very inquisitive. She walks well on a lead, ignores traffic and meets other dogs politely and happily. She hangs back on the lead and doesn't pull.
She is mostly clean in the house, and is discovering her inner Beagle (hooligan tendencies!) and is really starting to show her character. She is a great dog who would love a home to call her own with understanding humans who will work on her remaining insecurities and build up her confidence.

Chainie has come to stay with us after being in another foster home for a few months. She has improved wonderfully from the very scared girl in kennels and is furthering her education with me. We have called her Daisy Doodle as she needed a name to suit her very sweet gentle personality. Her photos do not do her justice as she is very pretty but has usual looks for a beagle, high cheekbones and dark almond eyes!
Daisy is still quite timid around people but has started to enjoy affection, she will join the other dogs in the sofa or on the bed and accept a fuss as long as it is delivered in a calm way, she is easily startled by noise. She walks well on a "slip" lead and is curious about the world, meeting other dogs and humans with a quiet friendly nature. Daisy has been out on a long lead and harness to explore more on longer walks.
She is not as busy as some beagles but this may change as her confidence grows but in my experience a decent walk and most beagles settle down.
Daisy is a bit of a "fair weather" walker, who can blame her for not liking the rain, but this is when "accidents" happen in the house, she is mostly clean in dry weather!
As most beagles she loves her food and this helps with her training, Daisy is a bright little girl and picks up instruction quickly. She also travels well in the car.
Daisy has met my grandson who is 6 and was quite timid with him so a family with older children would suit with at least one friendly resident dog to help her settle in.

Chanie (or Miss Daisy  Doodle) continues her education on the "outside" and I must admit she is a very easy girl to look after. She is the most laziest of beagles and truely loves her bed!  She is always the last one up and always first in the bed by the radiator.  If she had a job in the hoooman world it would be testing comfy duvets and fleeces - she loves a fleece blanket!
Daisy travels well in the car, loves walks (her tail wags the whole time we are out), good with other dogs and humans. We are looking for a calm home for this gentle, sensitive soul as she still is nervous in certian situations (carrier bags are the devil's work!) but in the right surrounding she will flourish.  It is time she had her own family to call her own, Daisy Doodle has so much more to give.

Daisy Doodles continues to make progress...inbetween her frequent naps of course. We are working on her recall, I have been walking her on a harness and long lead, she loves exploring, it would be great if she could go off lead and investigate with my beagles. It is early days but she is definitely trainable...especially with her love of cheese.
This delightful little beagle is very fine coated and isn't very "doggy" in smell but we thought  she should experience a "spa" day (she had a bath). Daisy is definitely not a water baby but was very well behaved and even enjoyed a quick soapy massage.
A quick recap..Daisy walks wondefully on a lead meeting humans and dogs easily and with respect. She travels well in the car, she would need at least one other dog for company and confidence and is 98% clean in the house. She is still working on her confidence so needs a sympathetic, calm home that understands her needs. Can you spot Daisy in the "beagle pile"?


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.

Although CHAINIE is by donation rather than the full adoption fee, we ask for a minimum donation of £100 to help cover the costs that have been incurred. 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. 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.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
