18-01-18 Hoppi is a 6 year old exbreeding schnauzer. She is a  very scared girl who is not used to being handled at all and is not used to being around people. She loves other dogs and needs one in her new home to boost her confidence and show her new skills such as house training and walking on a lead. Hoppi is going to need some time, patience and lots of TLC for her to adjust to the idea of being a loved member of the family but once she relaxes she will love being someones special girl.

Lovely Hoppi (or Poppy as we call her in foster) is a sweet little girl who is finding her feet slowly and having the puppyhood she never had.
She is still wary about being touched but now comes into the lounge instead of staying in the kitchen. She will need a quiet home with at least one other dog for company and reassurance and at the moment children would need to be at least 10+ in age. She doesn't walk on a lead & harness yet, but this will come with time and patience.

Lovely Hoppi is still a very scared girl, but you can see she tries so hard not to be.  She still doesn't like being touched, but will allow you to catch her and stroke her gently for a while, but you can feel how tense she is.
She will take treats out of our hands now, but she does it with a very stretched out neck, so she doesn't have to get too close.  She panics when we put her harness on her, but once out on a walk she does start to relax slightly, but she needs an experienced owner as she is still a severe flight risk. 
Hoppi needs a home where the owners lead a quiet life, have at least one other kind dog who will let her snuggle with them, no young children in the house or visiting and somebody who has got the time and patience to work with her as it will be a long haul gaining her trust.

Little with all the new things around her. She watches everything that’s going on here and loves to sit in the sunshine in the garden and relax. She’s still learning on the lead, house training is going great with the warm weather and the door open she’s learnt to go outside! She sleeps soundly in our kitchen at night and has been no trouble here at all.  She prefers to blend into the background if she can but now it’s her time to shine and just needs that special person to bond with and trust . Anyone who adopts her will be very lucky indeed,

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.
