09-03-21 Kiss is a beautiful ex breeding Dachsy who has come to us to finding a loving home. She has an inguinal hernia which we will repair here.
She is a very shut down girl who has not seen anything of the big wide world before so is quite scared at the moment. She is very worried about being handled and picked up and will start to panic so this is something her new owners will need to take very slowly with her. Kiss will need an adult only home, with owners who have experience of very scared and shut down dogs.
She relies on other dogs to be happy and so she is looking for a home where there is another small sized dog to be her friend. She will need a home without large or bouncy dogs. This beautiful girl is looking someone with plenty of time to help her settle and adjust to her new home and who can be patient as she learns new skills such as housetraining, walking on a lead and all the other things she needs to learn. Kiss has never been been kissed, or had an evening in front of the tv, or been on an adventure ... please give her a chance to all these things and more.

Kiss has been with us in foster a few weeks now and very slowly we see glimpses of her personality starting to appear. She is definitely cute and very very tiny and I know will find her way into so many people's heart. However Kiss needs to find exactly the right person and home to help her start her new forever life.
Kiss is very scared of home life even when it is quiet and has spent her time hiding in a bed in her crate as she knows it’s not easy for humans to come near her there. We are very slowly getting her used to being handled just by me to start with, as she is definitely more wary of men and will let them know that. There is definite progress but you have to take it all very slowly as she is not a girl that likes to be rushed.
Kiss also likes to play hide and seek to keep us all on our toes she can slip through babygates, hide in a tiny pile of leaves, under cushions, under a bush, in a magazine rack, under decking. Every day she creates some new excitement for us having found a new hiding place. Being a pro she won’t give the game away by moving or making a sound whilst you hunt for her. So security and patience and a very tidy house and garden are essential.
Kiss is a special little project and will make someone proud as she progresses but you will need to have lots of experience and prepared to learn more to help her. You will also need to have another small well socialised happy dog to guide her. So far she is only interested in miniature dachshund pals but does now tolerate a small cavalier as a pillow occasionally!
If you have read this and think you can offer Kiss the time, experience and have an extremely secure house and garden then we would love to hear from you so you can learn more about her special little ways.
Ps I thought you might like to see how we have so far outwitted her babygate antics which of course she only dares to do secretly when we are in bed at night. Thank goodness for cameras to keep an eye on her midnight manoeuvres!!! By morning she is back in bed as if butter would not melt!

Kiss has been in foster for several months and slowly her personality is starting to emerge along with her early morning excitement about the arrival of breakfast. She loves to be outside sunning herself and now will happily pop in and out of the garden on her own.
She is still very wary of people but especially men but will tolerate me picking her up, once I’ve managed to find her as she hides as soon as she thinks a plan to pick her up could be on the cards.
Kiss loves to snuggle with my miniature dachshund and you can see how tiny she is next to her.
There is a big wide world out there yet for Kiss to learn about now she trusts me more and she will need a home with lots of time and patience to adjust at her own pace with a little very confident pal to show her the way.
No children is a must for her because of her size and they would terrify her. Because of her tiny size and level of fear she needs a lovely house and garden that is extremely secure and in a quiet rural area.
Whilst looking for the perfect match with her particular needs it is delightful to see her very slowly settling in and her naughty self emerging and I’m sure her forever mum will also love to see her tiny baby steps of confidence growing.

Kiss has been with us several months, although she is still a very scared girl, her personality is starting to show through. Kiss is a very clever and determined little minx that will get up to mischief if she thinks you aren’t watching her so needs a very secure home and garden. She really loves being outside in the garden exploring and also loves a cosy little bed and is now brave enough to snuggle with her chosen doggie friend.
Handling Kiss still makes her very worried and has to be done carefully and patiently. She is still very scared of men and anything new or noisy and would be too scared to be around children.
Kiss needs a quiet rural home with a woman with experience of very scared dogs, preferably with experience of dachshunds. An adopter will need to focus her attention on giving her time and space whilst gaining her trust and showing Kiss gentle kindness. Kiss will also need at least one confident little dog to follow, preferably another dacsie as she is much happier amongst other dachshunds.
Kiss is a very special girl that needs a very secure home and dedicated family to help her overcome her worries and enjoy her new life.  

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.

 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.
* Many Tears uses Vanguard to vaccinate their dogs.  However, this can sometimes be difficult to source at local vets so if you are adopting a dog or puppy that has only had one vaccination please be aware your vets may require you to start the course from the beginning.

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