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.

20-03-21 This super handsome fellow is Solo! He has come from a breeder to find a loving home. Solo is quite frightened at the moment and really doesnt know what to expect here at the rescue. He gets on well with other dogs of a similar size to him and will need a large size dog in his new home to help show him the ropes as he has never lived inside before. Solo is a smart and active fellow who is going to need a home where he will get plenty of exercise and mental stimulation to get the very best of him. He is too worried to home around children at the moment and will need a patient person who is experienced with nervous dogs to be able to commit their time and dedication into helping this worried boy. In time we know he will find his zing and his wings... and will fly!

A gorgeous boy, Solo's made great progress since first coming to the rescue. The first time I met him a few weeks ago he was very nervous and wouldn't come near me, but will now cautiously approach me and allow me to put the lead on him without any fuss. He still has a long way to go but the progress he's made in such little time is very promising.
He's still a bit unsure about people, particularly those he doesn't see too often. He's also reactive towards other dogs, especially those that pass his kennel, he is however currently kennelled with a larger greyhound and could fit in nicely with a well-tempered dog of a similar size. Since he still has a bit to learn and isn't completely comfortable around people it would be best if he was homed with a resident dog. He's a bit of a project but will be worth it.

Solo is just lovely. I have only met him a few times, he is generally quite anxious, but he is fine with people he knows. He is currently feeling sorry for himself as he's hurt his paw, but he'll be back to his happy self in no time.
His new owners would need to build his trust and bond with patience, but once he knows you are his humans I'm sure he will flourish!

Solo is a very sweet dog. In the time he has been in the rescue his confidence has grown and he is more inquisitive than when he arrived. Solo will walk on a lead for someone he has formed a bond with, but is more scared to walk with someone he doesn't know very well. Through the day today I have been in and tried to spend some time with Solo and he has been approaching me and has accepted some fuss too. Solo would need an experienced home with another dog to show him home life.

Solo is such a nervous soul but once he knows you he is happy to see you. He loves to play in his kennel to pass the time, especially with his food and water bowls!! He is such a funny character, and he walks lovely on the lead when he trusts you. At the moment he is kenneled with an Airedale and enjoys her company. I'm sure Solo would thrive once he has the security of his own home and humans.

Solo is still a very nervous chap, but when he builds a bond with you he does come out of his shell. When I come to see him now I get the pleasure of him running towards me with his whole body wagging, it makes me smile every time. Solo needs a resident dog and people that are experienced with scared, high energy dogs. He will need lots of mental stimulation in his new home.

Solo is breaking my heart. To be as terrified as he was when he first came in, I can not bare to think of what he has been through.
I have worked with him consistently since he arrived at MT and I think he considers me his person, I get the sweetest greeting when I go in to his kennel. But when someone he doesn't know is there, he tenses up and shuts down. It destroys me to see it.
What I wouldn't give to be able to take him home and heal every single one of his psychological scars.
Solo is a flight risk, he may always be, so VERY secure fencing is a must. He also needs a resident dog and no children in his new home.
He deserves the absolute world.

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.
