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.

06-04-21 Greta is a lovely chow chow who has arrived here from a breeder with extremely bad skin and as you can see she is practically naked.  We are treating her skin and hope to see some improvement soon and the start of some hair regrowth but this is going to take a while.  In addition to this she has sore eyes which is possibly entropian and she will be seeing the vet who will ensure she is treated for this and made more comfortable. Greta also has a grade 5 heart murmur which will need to be monitored by her future vet. So as you can see this girl really deserves to be in a comfy home. 
Greta walks on a lead but is a plodder and likes to go at a slower pace.   She will need at least one other dog in her new home to help her with house training and learning about life in a home.  Greta really needs that extra special person or family who will give her a home and all the care she needs.

04-06-21 UPDATE

Greta is settling into foster very well. She loves her walks and running round the garden. She is worried about new people, things and noises, but greets new dogs well. She gets worried when you brush her so I do a little and often, she also loves a fuss but on her terms.

Greta is so ready for her forever home, she is such a beautiful dog and she has a great character. Greta loves her walks, she can be strong on the lead, she meets other dogs very well but backs away from people, which is a characteristic of the Chow Chow they prefer their people. She is protective of the home but not aggressively, she will bark at strangers which is not a bad thing. Greta has become attached to me and I will miss her very much.  

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.
