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.

12-01-2018 Shasta is a 2 year old cocker who has come to us from a breeder.  She is a little small for a cocker and we think she may have a touch of something else in her but she is very cocker like.  Shasta is very timid and is by far much happier in the company of other dogs and will need at least one in her new home to help her confidence with people.  She will watch and copy them and this will help her with house training and lead walking.   If you can offer Shasta a quiet and calm home and understand she will need time to settle and adjust please complete her application form.

Well this is the most scared dog we have ever had to foster. She won`t allow us to touch her or get near her although we have had here about 2 months so we do wonder what has happed to her, She loves other dogs and will play happily and is just learning about toys She will not walk on a lead but knows that she should get excited but that`s as far as it goes. She will now stay in the same room as us but we must not move. We shall not give up and keep going for as long as it takes.

I know that this might be a funny thing to be so excited about but our very timid Cocker( Dolly here) is starting to be naughty. She has now chewed a shoe and a slipper!!!! Both things were in my bedroom, which is a room she has never ventured in before. Is she starting to be a normal dog?  I do hope so for her sake.

This is one funny Cocker Spaniel. She still hates being handled, but does not nip anymore
Yesterday, after 7 months we managed to put a lead on her and take her out with the gang!
She didn`t really enjoy it and would not walk very far, but was able to a bit more of the world.
As slow as she is coming round, she will be worth it, so we wait for the next step on he road to becoming a pet.


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.
