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.

07-01-2024 Hector is one of our long term stayers so we are starting his write up again to try and find him the perfect home.  Hector is a really cool dude! He is super smart, I mean Mensa level and because of this he knows just how to make life go his way.
Hector loves to learn which makes him a dog trainers delight. The more you give him the more he soaks up and because of this he has already got a lot of amazing training behind him. He has a good level of crate games, a number of tricks, he’ll happily put his nose into a muzzle, shake each of his paws, turn a circle, sit, down and more!
Hector's issue in life is when settled he will guard. At the rescue we don’t see any of this, possibly as it’s not a home environment or possibly just because we do not give him the opportunity. We’ve been continually working towards his home life and teaching him things to help him with that transition. He has worked a lot on self control games, wearing a muzzle (so his new owners can confidently help him to make the correct choices in a home, whilst they learn what may bring on any unwanted behaviour).
Hector is great with other dogs and happily lives amongst them. He often goes out for a walk with Chive and others and really enjoys the company. We also feel other well behaved dogs will help Hector to learn what is needed in a home. Hector happily walks past horses and other distractions without pulling. He would be looking for an adult only home.

Hector has been here for such a long time, and seeing some of the dogs we home here i am very surprised that he's still around. Since coming in I've been working closely with Hector and he's come on in leaps and bounds. Hector is truly amazing and is so eager to learn. Since being in our care we have taught him to walk to heal, wait, stay, will give both paws, lays down and I can even take a bowl away from him, In the day time Hector does come into the back office and shares this with 6 other large male dogs, so to set him up for success we are either looking for a home with a pack of dogs or as an only. Hector has been known to guard in his previous homes, but doesn't display any of this behaviour here, so for this reason we are looking for an experienced home with someone who will work through his problems. He travels well in the car, passes dogs absolutely fine on the road but is scared of cats. If you are looking for an amazing addition to your family then look no further

Hector is still with us and it's coming up to 2 years now. Hector loves nothing more than to run free and be busy sniffing all the sniffs that are around. Yesterday Hector was taken out off site and he was an absolute Angel. Hector loves to run with bike and will happily go for a 2 hour jog. Hector is truly wonderful and gives me the most amazing cuddles in the morning when he first see's me. If you are looking for a bundle of fun and experienced then look no further, this guy is not to be missed out on.

 Ahh Hector, what's it going to take to get you a forever home? You've seen chive, Fame, Westonia and Laurel go home and I can't even begin to think how this makes you feel. Here at many tears we do try to make sure he has the best life he can but this is nothing like living in a home. His crime for being here? Because he guards things he thinks is his, we control this here by swapping it for a piece of ham or chicken and he drops what he has instantly. Hector can run for miles and now goes offlead down the fields and comes back instantly when called. Please please think of Hector as he's been waiting for 2 years and he gets more sad every day.


 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.
