30-08-17 Bax is a beautiful 3 year old cross breed who has come to us from Bosnia.  He was rescued from a high kill shelter and has gone straight to a foster home.  Bax is a little shell shocked and overwhelmed and although he walks on a lead this needs to be worked on.  He is nervous in busy areas so his fosterer will start him off with quite walks to where he can gain some confidence. Bax loves people and is a  sweet and friendly boy.  He is house trained and currently living with other dogs but prefers them to be calm and gentle so at the moment we are looking for a home with at least one other dog to help him.  Bax will need a very secure garden with 6ft fencing as he is looking for an escape at the moment.  This of course may change with time as he become more accustomed to his new surroundings but any new home will need to have fencing he cannot jump.  He has a luxating patella in one of his rear legs which makes him only use three legs when he runs.

Bax has been with us for a week and as you can see he is enjoying life. He is living with 6 other dogs (collies and labs) and gets on well with them all. Bax enjoys his food and eats very politely taking his time and enjoying it.
Bax does not yet walk on a lead and now he has settled we will start with harness training. Bax has a luxating patella but this does not affect him, he has a limp when he walks and lifts the leg when he runs.
Bax is a very affectionate boy who loves company and will need another dog or a human who is around all of the time as he finds it distressing when he is left alone.

Bax has settled so well with us, he is walking on the lead although he is a little pulley at times.  Bax takes treats and eats like a gentleman with no snatching. Bax has lots of energy and will need a large garden to run around in that is very secure until he has recall and being a clever boy this will not take long. Bax will need another dog of a similar size as he does not like being on his own and there must not be any cats or small furies as he has high prey drive. Bax is a smasher.

Bax is coming on every day, he is part of the pack now and enjoying life and as you can see is quiet relaxed. Today on our walk we met some geese and ducks and horses. Bax was curious about the horse and very interested in the ducks and geese and because of this he will need a home without small animals. Even with his leg problem Bax loves his walks and charging around the garden on three legs. Bax would love a home with a friend as he can get worried when left alone, Bax will give any new family lots of love and fun.

This is what I need after a long walk, a good kip. Dad took me and Trooper for a walk to the farm which was great, we walked through the woods then up a great big hill and on the way back I had a big drink from the stream. I saw ducks and geese and they looked very tasty but dad said no, spoilsport.  I sleep all night through and will tell you if I need to go out for a pee. My gammy leg does not stop me running I just tuck it up and go charging about. I eat so politely and take treats very gently. I am a lovely boy so mum says and I really want a forever home, please.

Dear Santa They say a dog is for life not just for Christmas and I would love my life to be with my forever family. I would love an active family who will give me lots of walks and play, I am told that I am a clever boy so would love to go to training classes to learn wonderful things. I am clean in the house and will let you know if I need to go out, I will paw at the leads when I want a walk. When I eat I am very well behaved and at treat time I will sit and wait ever so politely for my biscuit. Now I know dear Santa that you don't keep families on the shelf like toys but I would love it if you could mention me a lovely family who don't have small furries that I would be ideal for them.
Thank you Santa Love Bax xxx

Well I have been in my foster home for 4 months now after being rescued in Bosnia and being sent to Many Tears. Although I love my foster home I really want my own forever home. I am a good boy and am polite when eating and taking treats, I love a walk even though I have a bad leg I will walk forever by hitching up the leg and walking on 3. I am not in any pain and I don't even think about it.
I get on well with the other 5 dogs here and play nicely but I would not like to be with smaller dogs or other small animals. People say "ah what a poor boy" but I am not I am a normal boy with a gammy leg which does not cause me problems and wanting my forever home. Please Bax. Xxxxx

Well it's only three days until Christmas and I am still in foster,why doesn't anyone want me? Is it because I am not a puppy? But I am only 2. I am loyal , love a cuddle am very polite when I eat take treats very gently go straight to my crate at bed time and sleep all night. I don't have accidents on the house and love a walk all in all I am perfect. Foster mum and dad say the right home will come but when will that be ? All I need is a warm bed good food and love, that's not much to ask for is it?
Merry Christmas
Love. Bax xxx

I did ask Santa for a forever home for Christmas but he must have run out of them.  Could you make this my happy new year?  Look at me waiting so nicely for my biscuit, I am a star, so I am told so you could adopt a real star all you have to do is go to the website fill in a form and I could be your new friend.  Please x

14-01-18 UPDATE

Why am I still here? All my friends who came to foster with me have gone to or are going to new homes and I am left here.
I am a good boy and very smart look at me in my new coat. I am house trained, eat calmly and sit and wait for a treat.  I love walks and toys and when it's bed time I am the first upstairs and into my bed.  I sleep all night through.
I get on well with the big dogs here but not with cats or small furries. I would love a forever family with children to play and run with me but not too small I might knock them over. When I leave here another poor dog will get the chance to live in home and learn what it's like to be a pet. Please give me a chance

Bax is still waiting for a home and to help him find this his supporters have rasied enough money for him to see a specialist about his luxating patella.  If surgery can be done this will cost in the region of £2000 so if you would like to help us help Bax please click the link to make a donation. Thank you.  Thank you.

Bax is at present unavailable as he is having a major operation on his poorly leg. Once home Bax will need 8 weeks crate rest therefore will not be available until he is fit. This operation has cost many thousands of pound which has all been donated to him from supporters of Many Tears to whom Bax sends his love and thanks.

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.
