12-06-2021 Just look at those beautiful big brown eyes. They speak a thousand words to us about a beautiful spaniel who is feeling overwhelmed, frightened and so unsure about this new world she  has found herself in. Kite is such a terrified girl who hides away when we approach her. She does not bark or growl at us, she just dives away and tries to melt into the background, staring at the wall in the hope that we do not notice her. When we leave she will snuggle her friends, taking comfort from them and needing to feel them right beside her. 
Kite allows us to pick her up, hold her and touch her all over, but she is very scared as we do this. She is gentle, kind and very sweet. We will show her that we are also kind and earn her trust. Kite needs a home with an adopter with experienced of terrified dogs and where there is another dog to take her by the paw and show her that she doesn't need to be afraid anymore. She can also copy new skills like house training and lead walking which may take some time and patience. Kite needs someone special who has experience with worried dogs and has a calm home without children as Kite would be overwhelmed by these at the moment. Most of all, this girl needs a lot of love and reassurance. 

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.
