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.

05-07-21 Fanta has come from a breeder to find her forever home for the very first time. Poor Fanta is incredibly worried about her sudden change in circumstances and has no idea what to expect, or how to behave and is very easily startled. She is not used to being handled and can panic if she is approached incorrectly but when handled right she will allow us to pick her up and we will practice this with her. Fanta is reliant on other dogs and only happy when she has them close by her. She will need at least one kind dog in her new home to help her settle and lend her much needed confidence. They will help Fanta learn new skills such as house training and how to walk on a lead. She is going to need an experienced home, a lot of TLC and an adult only home to help her settle more easily. She is at the very beginning of her journey to becoming a confident dog and she will take time, patience and love to help her reach her goal.

18-07-21 UPDATE
This very pretty little girl has been with me for exactly a week and in that time she has come on significantly. She was previously so frightened about coming into the house - despite having several dogs of my own in the home, that she would hide in the hedges around the garden. Just a few days on and watching the behaviour of my own dogs, she is now climbing up on a sofa (on the other side of the room) and snuggling down and enjoying comforts she has never experienced before.
Incredibly Fanta has neither dirtied in the house since day one. I have deliberately left soiled puppy pads down at night time and she has on three occasions used these. Otherwise she has used the garden, copying my own dogs as they do ‘their business’. As yet I have not been able to get near enough to hold her and I don’t want to stress her anymore at this stage as her tremendous fear is so evident. If I walk within a metre of her she will still run away but previously I could not have got anywhere near as close.
Her progression which is notable on a daily basis is so impressive however that I think it is only a matter of time. She is as I type this for example, laying a metre away from my feet on the lawn in the sun. She has also eaten her very first dog chew, not knowing initially what to do with it. Without doubt she will need a ‘quiet human’ home with at least one happy and confident dog to continue to show her that she no longer has to fear life. If you are considering adopting this beautiful girl only apply if you truly are selfless, and patient. She is absolutely adorable and deserves only the best.  

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.
