09-02-18 - Fred is a 6 year old male Lhasa Apso.  He is a sweet little boy who has a gorgeous gentle nature who will need another dog to help him settle in.  He cannot walk on a lead or harness yet, so will need some help learning to do this.  He is starting to wag his tail, but just needs a bit more confidence to bring him out of his shell.  He has hardly any teeth and our vet will assess his remaining teeth when he is castrated.

Fred is a small shih tzu who looks so cute, but don't be fooled. He has a big character!! He is definitely confident and has his nose into everything. His latest adventure was trying to bring the floor mop in the back door. He soon realised he couldn't get it in one way so turned it round and hey presto look Auntie aren't I clever!!
Fred actually came here a little while ago. He travelled well and had soon sussed out the garden and house. Unfortunately he doesn't like the garden in the rain or snow, but will use a puppy pad by the door. When we first had snow it was so funny watching him trying to walk without actually putting his paws down.
Fred is certainly unique as two of his bottom front teeth stick out slightly which makes him look like a cute vampire. It doesn't stop him eating!! He hasn't mastered the stairs yet, but not for the lack of trying. There's been a few thumps when he has tried. 'A' for effort. He also can't get on the chairs, but he can leap off if he thinks he's missing something, especially if he thinks food is involved.
He sleeps all night in the crate downstairs with his foster buddy and not a peep from either of them. He's very good in the car where he travels in a crate. Fred loves his person and doesn't like them being too far from him, but having said that he is quiet when I go out as long as he has a companion. He's in the early stages of lead training, as in he's fine wearing a harness and he's getting used to the lead. I'm sure he's going to enjoy walks as he's so inquisitive.
Fred does have one dry eye which means drops twice a day. To sum Fred up. He's a quirky, clever, inquisitive, sweet, funny little boy who would love a little companion, plenty of toys, especially if they drive humans crazy, and lots and lots of love. I can guarantee once he's settled he will make you laugh every day and keep you on your toes.

Poor little Fred is feeling sorry for himself. His foster buddy has gone to her forever home and he is a bit lost. He doesn't like sleeping on his own now and comes upstairs in my bedroom with my dogs. He still sleeps all night without a sound. Fred is such a character. I've nicknamed him Mr Grumpy as every time he has his eye drops he has to have a grumble. It can sound a bit scary until you realise this is part of his 'charm'. But to be very clear - he doesn't bite - just grumbles. He's not a cuddle bug, but doesn't go very far from his favourite human.
Is there that certain family/couple out there who have a small companion for him that isn't too energetic (he loves walks, but at his own pace (he doesn't run) who will snuggle with him and have the odd funny five minutes. Fred looks like butter won't melt in his mouth. Don't be fooled. He is a real character.

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.
