19-02-18 Nifty is a 5 year old beagle who has been returned to her foster home for a few months.  She came back to have treatment for bladder stones and it was decided that she would stay with here until she was better and then look for a new home.
Nifty or as I call her Lucy is a pleasure to have around. She is completely submissive to all dogs and is very kind and gentle with any new fosters I have along with my own. She has a fear of strange or sudden noises and it was quite extreme to begin with. She would take herself off to her safe place and stay there at any new or sudden sound. This is getting much better now in my home. She is used to the comings and going’s and has relaxed enough at times to enjoy a little play with one of the other dogs. Lucy is as gentle as a lamb with humans and avoids eye contact with strangers and remains very still. She will however accept anyone touching or stroking her and is very passive with anything you need to do such as clipping nails, bathing her, vet check up etc.
Lucy has started to enjoy car rides as she has had to have quite a few travelling to and from the vets and now gets very excited when it’s walkies time after having lost 4kg in weight and is growing in confidence. I still take her to quiet places though as people coming towards her unnerves herand she starts to back up quite frantically at times. Lucy still finds going out in the garden quite scary and sometimes needs a gentle push and then she’ll have a quick sniff around, tail up but doesn’t stay out long.
Lucy is an absolute sweetheart and I love her very very much but I do think there is an even better home out there waiting for her. An adult only home who will continue to help, guide and support her with plenty of quiet places to walk and a gentle doggy friend or two would be perfect for her. Even my home can be a bit much for her at times with teenagers who she knows. This little girl may look like a Beagle but she has none of the Beagle attributes and is an angel. If you think you are what she needs, then please consider her as she is a very loving girl that deserves everything.

Another 3 weeks have passed and still no interest in this beautiful girl and I honestly don’t know why. Ok, so she may have some fears of noise but she’s getting better by the day and is the most loving girl when she gets to know you. She is completely BOMBPROOF with any dog, cat or other animal and is so relaxed and submissive around them. She could easily be bullied so a friendly, gentle friend is a must. She’s loving her walks and gets very excited when the lead comes out and you can see just how happy this little girl can be. She is very small too, just a little taller than a Cav. She’s been even braver the last few days, running out to the garden of her own choosing on her own and spending time out there, sniffing, exploring and doing her business! I’m so proud of her, she’s a little star!

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 NIFTY 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.
