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.

09-02-18 Santes is a lovely 6 year old Beagle girl who has come from a breeder.  She has a lot of love to offer her new family but at first she can be a bit nervous.  However, once she has spent a short time with you, she does quickly come out of her shell and enjoy a fuss. Santes is a beginner on the lead, but we think with some positive encouragement she will soon walk beautifully.  Santess will need a home with at least one other dog to help her settle into her new life and and who she can watch and copy to help her with house training.

Santes is a very big beagle with a very big heart! She is kind, sweet, caring and gentle, and a girl to be very proud of. She has the most beautiful temperament. She spends her days chilling out in her kennel, quietly, sitting next to her kennel friends in bed, watching the goings on with an interested expression on her face that makes her look like she's a comical old woman frowning/concentrating! - and it is a very cute facial expression! ~
At playtime, she runs out of her kennel along side her kennel friends, and down the corridor to her play yard where she spends her time having a really good sniff about, and a good play. Santes LOVES to play, especially fetch or games with balls. She will even play football with a tennis ball all by herself bless her! It's funny watching such a big beagle bound about! She shares her toys very well indeed, and doesn't mind if one of her best friends - another very playful beagle who can't share her toys - takes Santes' toys away from her!
Santes will also enjoy an occasional wrestle with her best beagle buddy too. She is now an intermediate on a lead and needs another more confident dog to walk with her so that she walks well. Santes would need to be homed with another more confident resident dog who'll provide her with the doggy company she so loves and needs to be fully happy and develop further.
Santes gets on well with all dogs she meets and is kennelled with too, no matter size or gender. She happily approaches people she knows well for fuss - and when you do fuss her, her "old woman frowning/concentrating" facial expression disappears, and a much gentler, softer, happier expression spreads across her face, and she gives you a little wag - it is so sweet and so lovely receiving a wag from a fairly shy girl. If you are looking to adopt a really kind hearted dog - please consider this big girl. She is so beautiful and would be one very loyal friend.

What a sweet beagle this girl is. Greets you lovely and walks beautifully too, although she does need a little more confidence but that will come with time and patience. We had lovely cuddles and after 5 seconds she had stolen my heart. If you are looking for the loveliest beagle then Santes is your girl. I mean, Just look at that face.

Santes is a beautiful and well-natured girl. I think she might have some Bassett in her because she looks so deliciously chunky and puppyish!
It is really a delight to watch her take little steps every day to overcome her past. She has found out that the world is much bigger then she thought for the first six years of her life - and she is desperately trying to make sense of it all. So far she has decided that she really likes:
- sleeping
- toys
- walks in the countryside
- her crate
- venison sausages
- trips in the car
- and swimming!
She is indifferent to traffic, lets cyclists go past without giving them a second look and is getting used to household noises. She is clean in the house, sleeps through the night and is happy to be left for a few hours.
Santes is still not sure about strangers and especially men, and prefers the safety of her crate when we have people over. She is starting to like my teenage boys and will look for treats from them and will chase a ball if they throw it for her, but she only trusts my husband when he takes her for a walk. Walks is when she really blossoms - she runs up the ramp into the car, explores with her tail up high, and even comes back when she is called.
Please consider this lovely girl, it is such a privilege to help her open a new chapter in her life.

Santes has been staying with us for a few weeks now. She is reliably toilet trained and her confidence has grown massively. She has bonded with me and likes to follow me everywhere, but is still happy to be left for a few hours and I don’t even put her in a crate any more when we are out as she is such a good girl! She still likes the security of the crate when we have visitors, but for the night she now chooses to go upstairs with us and sleeps next to our bed.  As you can see from the picture Santes has passed her cat test too!

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 SANTES 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.
