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.

01-03-18 Purdy is a 2 year old collie cross who has come to use from truly appalling conditions in Romania. She has witnessed and experienced things no dog should see and she was saved by a Romanian rescue who have very little funds. Thanks to our wonderful supporters we were able to offer help to 10 of these dogs and so now Purdy is here to find a home probably for the first time in her life.
Despite Purdys poor start, her trust of man and hopes for the future are that he can turn her rotten life around. She is good with other dogs and will need another dog to show her the ropes of living in a home.  She shows no aggression, just fear that humans have made . (may God forgive them) She is a small collie sized little girl who if you nurture her will bloom. Purdy has her own passport.

Purdy is beautiful ,clever and unfortunately not the easiest dog in the world . She is now going to be my project dog because she does more with me than with most staff , but even I can't get a harness on her as she will snap with fear , the torture this poor girl has had to make her scared of the simple stuff is sickening . Hopefully I will change her life a little not by pushing her by loving her

Purdy has been spayed and before she was fully awake we popped a harnes on her to help her adjust to the feeling of one. We are  taking little steps forwardd with this beautiful girl and we look forward to her enjoying being spoilt for the first time

Purdy is a very gentle and quiet girl, until you try to interact with her. Purdy is still nowhere near as confident as she should be, something has happened to her where she can't let go of the past. Purdy has started walking on a lead  in the round pen, and shes doing very well. She will take food from your hands but but she has to know you and trust you first, Purdy will need another dog to help her see what life is like in the home, she has also passed her cat test, so in the right circumstances she could be homed where there are cats.

From the moment I me this beautifu l lady I've been smitten.  She's such a lovely girl when she knows you.  What the hands of man have done to her in Romania God only knows but it's been bad and very scaring to her. I've been trying for months to get her past her fear of leads. I approach her slowly and gently but have only managed  to get it on her very few times.  She trusts me to a certain point and forgets I love her and would never harm her. She gets herself in a panic and it's the hardest thing to watch and to calm her down.  Well this morming I managed to get her out and we went for a walk to the river.  Apart from the horse fly's biting it was an amazing walk with only Purdy only getting spooked once.  My hearts been bouncing all day about this so had to come and update everyone who is following her.

Well, what do I say about the pretty little Purdy.. yes, she is nervous of humans. But bonding with her is the most incredible feeling, you may have to work at it but once she begins to trust you it makes your heart soar. I can now stroke her on her head, chest and back in the yard. She comes over of her own accord and asks for love.
I am totally smitten with her, she makes me laugh and every time she allows me to stroke her I feel very privileged.
If you have experience with dogs like Purdy then please fill in an application form and come meet her.


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.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
