11-01-18 Yemmy is a 6 year old ex-breeding Westie. This little love is nervous and shy. This is because she has never traveled beyond her breeders before so the world seems huge and daunting to her. She is easily startled and will need a calm, quiet , adult home to help her best to shed her fears and start to relax and settle into a new life of love and kindness. She will need a well adjusted and confident dog in her new home to help her learn new things like house training and walking on a lead. In time this gentle little lady will discover how wonderful her new life is.

Yemmy is known as Gem here and has been in foster in Helston Cornwall for some time. She arrived in a pitiful state having had a bungled c-section performed on her in her past life. This had left her with part of her uterus attached to her bladder, as was found at her spaying, which can’t be removed and means Gem has a degree of wee incontinence when she is resting or asleep. In the daytime she is always clean in the house and she tries hard to keep herself clean. In reality, all this means is that whichever bed Gem sleeps on will need changing daily.
Gem is just lovely! She enjoys having a bath and a cuddle afterwards, to keep her clean and smelling pretty! Gem is very affectionate with her family and any strangers who come and need a hug! She loves our 5 year old granddaughter too!
Gem is a worker! She takes herself off with our Westie or our Retrievers hunting in the barn or under the sheds. She is very enthusiastic and vocal but has never caught anything! Gem is super to take on a walk away from our land; she now is off lead and stays close. She knows her name and her recall is good. She sleeps all night in the living room with our other dogs and is allowed to sleep on the sofa if she wants as I cover it with waterproof backed vetbed which can be easily washed.
Gem is a very special little girl who has had a terrible past but is now enjoying the future with the hope of a home to come where she will receive the understanding she deserves and be allowed to life a life as normal as possible... no nappies, crates or restrictions. She would need at least one other active, confident friend and lots of exercise or stimulation. The pictures show her enjoying the last of the summer sun and the other of her very special inquisitive expression

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.

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.
