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.

05-08-2017 Mildred is a 6 year old ex breeding westie. She is a sweet little girl who has gone straight into foster with George. Mildred and George could be rehomed together (but don't have to be)  without a resident dog as long as their new owners are experienced and prepared to house train and help with lead walking.  If homed separately Mildred will need a confident dog who is not a push over as both her and George are bossy with other dogs but have a mutual respect for each other . If you have the time and patience she will soon learn to love her new life.

Mildred is more scared than George, but does now come up to me but only for a quick sniff. If Mildred wasn't homed with George then she would need to be homed with a male , as she can be dominant with females. Today she had het first lesson on lead walking, she found it very scary and I had to carry her. But in the garden she is very different and loves running round playing with the other dogs. She is crate trained and sleeps in a crate with George. Mildred just needs some TLC to help her to trust.

Mildred is still a nervous girl and still not keen on walking on a lead. But she does loves toys. She loved opening her Christmas presents. Mildred is not good with females her own size , but is fine with big ones. She is crate trained and runs in her crate at bed time. Mildred is really sweet and needs time to trust.

Mildred has been such a good girl this week. First she has been letting my adult son pick her up (he's 6ft with a beard) and second she has let me give her a hair cut and was so good. Next step is getting her walking on a lead. Mildred is crate trained and needs to be homed with dogs bigger than her (lab size) male or female . No cats or small furries. She is still a scared girl but very slowly improving.

Mildred is still a nervous girl. But has started to walk on a harness. She loves playing with the other dogs. She loves the garden and is a sunshine girl.

Mildred has been loving the sunny weather, she loves sun bathing. She is enjoying her walks, but is still too scared to walk near traffic. She is happy following me round, but still too scared to come for a fuss.

Super proud of sweet Mildred.  This weekend I took her to a fundraising camping weekend.  She did amazingly well and coped with lots of people around. She was too scared to let them make a fuss of her but she met every dog very well. On Saturday she clocked up 10 miles of walking through out the day. She was such a good, brave girl, so she got to enjoy a lovely ice cream.

Poor Mildred has been waiting a year now for her dream home, all she needs is a home with a dog/s bigger that her. Since going camping she has become more confident. She's always been very scared of my adult son's,  but now will walk next to them and let them pick her up with put panicking. She now just needs somewhere she can call home.


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.
