11-01-2018 Thistley is a 7 year old Jug who has spent her life in kennels as a breeding dog.  She is a little scared and worried to find herself here and she has never seen anything of the outside world but when you speak to her kindly she wags her tail and really wants to make friends but is just unsure.  Thistle will need at least one other dog to help her settle into her new life and who she can copy to learn about house training and lead walking.  With time, love and patience she will become a wonderful addition to your family.

Thistle is still quite a shy girl but is gaining confidence slowly. Thistle is easy to to pick up if she needs to be moved, she will move back to her bed and stop to be lifted up. She seems more confident through the bars of the kennel but once you actually step in to the kennel she will quickly and quietly move to the bedding area of the kennel. Thistle enjoys her yard time and enjoys all the sights and smells she experiences while out there. Thistle would fit in to a quiet family that will give her the time and help she will need to make her feel safe and happy.  She will need another dog in the home to show her the is nothing to be worried about.

Today I met Thistle - what a little sweetheart she is. Although she was initially hesitant to walk on the lead with me, she soon trotted along beside me with her head held high. We stopped to take photos, she stood whilst on a loose lead among the celendines. Thistle will still need a resident dog in her new home. This little girl is a star in the making.

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.
