Location: At Many Tears in

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.

27-05-2021 Jacko has arrived here in search of a home. He can be a very cuddly and loving boy with people he knows but is mistrustful of those he doesn't. Jacko also has a problem with his eyes which means he can only see shadows and he will bump in to you and objects.  This can make him defensive and we would only consider homing Jacko with a very experienced owner and where the is no children either living or visiting the home.  He already knows how to walk on a lead but can be a little wary when walking in new areas due to his limited vision so needs guidance particularly in small tricky areas. Although Jacko would be happy to share his new home with another dog he would need to be fed in a separate room as he can be possive over food.  In the right home he would be very happy to be an only dog. We will only consider homing Jacko in a rural location and with very experienced dog owners/

Although Jacko is mostly blind, he is so clever and uses your voice to navigate. He could be an only dog in the right circumstances. If he is with other dogs he needs them to be calm and not in his face, which is completely understandable. He is clean in his kennel and as smart as can be. All he needs is someone who is very experienced with dogs like him to love and care for him.

This is Jacko, I call him Jackson. We are looking for a very special home:

* only dog.
* one person household.
* very large garden or acerage where he can have total freedom off lead.
* preferably rural home
Jackson is an amazing dog who has so much love to give. He is a total joy to spend time with. His sight impairment is no restriction when we are out and about, he can run like the wind and has very good recall. Although he has huge sight impairment, he is able to avoid running into light coloured objects opposed to dark, eg. he could mostly avoid running into our golden retrievers, but would run into our black newfoundland. Having the collie intelligence is so advantageous for our special boy, he is able to map out new areas quickly and is very alert to commands.

Jacko is a very special boy who is looking for a very special home. This song was recorded by one of our talented staff members, Richard Burman and we feel like it fits Jacko perfectly. We won't give up on him and we hope he will find an adopter who feels the same way.

Jackson is a super dog who I find so easy to look after, I even forget that he has huge sight impairment.  If you are a single person household, live in a rural area and have collie experience, please contact us. This dog is walked off lead in our secure field by many staff members, all report how affectionate and how obedient he is.

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.


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