04-11-17 Crimble is a 6yr old exbreeding Maltee cross. Crimble is a very scared girl who will snap in fear as she doesnt understand this new world and doesnt know how to express herself.  She will need a very calm home with quiet people and no small humans. She will soon learn that life can be great and learn to live with no fear, perhaps you can be the one to show her what it means to be loved?
Crimble needs another dog to follow in her new home that she can cuddle up to and show her new skills like housetraining. She will also need experienced people who can give her the time she needs to settle.

Crimble is still a very scared girl who will snap in fear but she was groomed recently and wasn't as bad especially after you pick her up. She will need a very calm home with quiet people without young children and a family who understand the needs of nervous dogs. She will also need another dog to follow in her new home that she can cuddle up to and show her new skills like housetraining and help build the confidence she needs so she can trust humans again. Anyone adopting will need experienced who can give her the time she needs to settle and be the happy sweet girl she should be.

How cute is Crimble? Nobody can believe that she's considered a long staying dog in kennels. Crimble has been in our care for nearly 4 months now and in that time her progress has been very small, such a scary world for such a tiny, lost soul. Usually, long staying dogs have stayed a bit longer for a reason, maybe they're difficult with other dogs, maybe they need a very specific home, but Crimble is simply just scared. Today was my first real day working with her in her time here as she's never been on my section personally. She is terrified of people and will do anything to get away from humans, when you go in her kennel, she will jump behind her beds to hide behind them in the corner, which is heartbreaking. However despite her nervousness she will never go to bite me defensively and once you have her in your arms, she settles wonderfully, although she's understandably uncomfortable.
Crimble is incredible with other dogs and could go with absolutely anything, she is unbelievably reliant on other dogs and needs at least one other canine friend in her new home, she adores cuddling with her little Bichon friends. It goes without saying she needs someone with scared dog experience to bring her on in a home, but having seen much more scared dogs rehomed recently, it really makes me question the fact that this little sweetie is still her. I'm hoping for a solid week of work with Crimble to bring her out of her shell but a foster or forever home is really what she needs to progress her further.

Crimble has been in foster for 2 weeks and is enjoying home life. She’s relaxed in the house but is still very scared of people. Crimble is inquisitive and watches everything from a distance but will not approach you. She sleeps peacefully at night in a crate and is practically house trained. We are seeing glimpses of a cheeky personality but she needs time and patience. Crimble would love a little friend to cuddle up to and show her the way. She needs an experienced owner who understands scared dogs and are willing to let her grow in confidence.

Crimble has been in foster for 8 weeks now and what a little beauty she’s turning into. Crimble will now take treats and come up for a lick of your hand and wags her tail. She will accept being stroked but tenses up as she is still finding it hard to accept any type of fuss. Crimble is going to be a project dog and she would love a forever home with a little dog to follow and learn how to be a happy and relaxed.

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.
