If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

11-04-18 Meg has returned to MT as she has found to be of limited sight.  Although this does  affect her day to day life she copes extremely well and finds her way around very well as long as there is sufficient day light. She will bump into objects but is a quick learner and maps out the house and garden in her head. She is very cautious of shadows or dark spaces, but soon manages if encouraged to try.
We are looking for a home that is calm where Meg can get to know her surroundings. She would suit a retirement home where her family can be with her for the majority of the time.  Meg would not suit a noisy home with lots of coming and going as she is nervous of sudden noises and movements around her.
Meg finds it hard to settle at night, which her foster mum is working on and hopefully as the nights progress she will get better. If you allow her to sleep on your bed you’ll not find any problems with her.
Meg gets on very well with all dogs she meets and would do well in a home with another calm dog of the same size she could follow and bond and cuddle with.  She cannot manage stairs and has not learnt to jump. She walks extremely well on a harness, her lack of sight is of no hindrance except at kerbs or changes of levels.
Meg is a super little Pooch, she is a happy sweet natured lady, she loves cuddles and snuggling up on your knee or the sofa.

Meg has been in her new foster home for 2 weeks and has come on enormously. She is not the shy girl she was and had come out of her shell. She loves playing with squeaky toys, ventures down the garden on her own and thoroughly enjoys her walks.
Her night time routine has been solved and now sleeps upstairs quietly in a crate all night.
Her foster mum has started teaching her basic commands which she is having some success, but this will be ongoing. Meg does know her name and comes when ever called in the house and garden.
Meg has been to the groomers this week for a tidy up around the eyes and have her nails trimmed, she coped with both extremely well. She travels well in the car and has been out and about  a few times with no problems. She is happy with all dogs she meets and also has now been cat tested and happily could live with a cat.
If you are looking for a soft cuddly Bichon that is most happy when she is with you, then Meg is for you. She is a lovely, kind, affectionate pooch.

The wonderful Meg has been learning about all the fabulous things that happen in home life.  Picking the snuggliest place to doze is definitely her forte. Walks, she walks very well on a long lead making this so much more fun for her.  Garden play, she loves a chase in the garden or just being able to mooch about. Meg is comfortable with all dogs she meets and is cat friendly. She loves her food and is also very gentle taking treats, even with other dogs about. At first Meg did not go out in the dark, even if carried would run straight back indoors,  but now.....she will follow you outside at nighttime if called.  Her lack of eyesight, she is absolutely amazing, on first meeting Meg, you would find it difficult to believe there was a problem, her confidence has grown so much. But, she does bump into objects if moved, struggles at kerbs etc. Meg has been to the groomers for a complete wash and clip, she was an absolute star! Meg is learning recall on her long lead and this has been quite successful. But ‘sit’ is on going training, its getting there slowly. Climbing stairs though, this is work in progress and will take a while to master. Visitors, she is so sweet that everyone wants to cuddle her, could you be the one to cuddle the adorable Meg in a forever home?

Meg has had an amazing week and she has passed all the tests to enable her to be adopted as an only dog. She had a lovely walk on her own using a long lead, coming back each time when called, she met other dogs with confidence and enjoyed her me time! Training is ongoing, but just a little touch on her back with the word sit and she sits when asked now. We took her to the May Day Fayre, this week too, she coped extremely well with all the legs and pushchairs, very proud of her. Most of all though she loved all the cuddles as we met up with friends. Meg is looking for a new home where there is someone home most of the time, she loves human company and has anxiety issues when left, this is improving very slowly, unfortunately other dogs around do not reduce the anxiety. Due to her diminished eyesight a calm home with no children under 15 would be suitable. She was given a new toy today and immediately took it to her bed, she is a bit of a magpie of all things given to her, such a cutie pie! So, would you like the lovely Meg to join you? Please fill in an application on line. Here is a wonderful little video of Meg settling for a snooze.... so adorable!

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.

Although MEG is by donation rather than the full adoption fee, we ask for a minimum donation of £100 to help cover the costs that have been incurred. 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. 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. 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.
