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.

05-04-21 Doris is a very scared ex-breeding girl who has come to us to find a forever home.  She is a sad girl who has sore skin at the moment but we will start to treat this and hopefully she will be feeling a little better soon.  Doris seems to have a problem with one of her back legs and we are referring her to an orthapaedic specialist vet. Any specialist treatment will of course be expensive. If you are considering taking Doris on at this point you would need to be fully committed to any treatments and therapies she will need to help her and this will be costly and sadly not covered by insurance. She will need a home where there is at least one other dog and we would prefer this if this was another Dachshund.  This will help her with things like house training and lead walking etc.

05-05-04-21 UPDATE
Doris has seen by Mill Referrals and has had her Pan Tarsal Arthrodesis operation.  Due to the extreme bowing in her tibia she has been left with a slightly out turned foot but is recovering and managing well.  Thank you to everyone who contributed towards the cost of her operation.  We are very grateful for your kindness and support.

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.
