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.

29-07-21 Greta is a very beautiful female Bulldog who has come to us from a breeder. Greta is an extremely nervous girl at the moment who is scared of the world and clearly isn't used to being around humans yet. She will need a calm dog who is larger than her in her new home who can take her under their wing and teach her all about home life, including things like house training and how to walk on a lead. Although Greta is very nervous, she is showing signs of being inquisitive, which is lovely to see. Greta will need adopters who have experience with scared dogs like her and who are willing to take things slowly at her pace. With time and love, she will start to come out of her shell as she settles in to her new home and will start to blossom into the dog she should have always been.

I’ve been working with Greta for just about a week now and I’m so happy so say she’s making a good amount of progress with me. I’ve been taking things extremely slow with her as she is absolutely terrified of us humans, but I think she is slowly starting to realise that she’s in a good place now and I’m not going to hurt her. She still runs away if I go to approach her and she does still growl a little at me, but when I sit down in her kennel she will come over to me and give me a little sniff! She also gets quite excited to see me first thing in the mornings now and comes to the front of the kennel to greet me with a waggy tail.
These things may only seem small to a lot of people, but it’s actually a huge improvement. These ex breeding dogs take a LOT of time, love and patience to come to terms with the fact not all humans are bad, and any amount of progress is just brilliant.
Greta will need a very experienced home with people who have had very scared dogs in the past. She will need a kind resident dog or dogs, who will teach her all about home living, and show her that she doesn’t need to be afraid anymore. Her owners will need to have a lot of time and patience to spend with her, and not give up on her no matter how hard it gets. The home will need to be child free.
Greta has been kennelled with a couple of different breeds of dogs and she’s been absolutely wonderful with them. She relies on them SO heavily that I think she’s just grateful to have them around. It takes a special person to adopt a scared dog like Greta, but I know there’s a lot of them out there as I see them every day working this job. She really just needs to be given a chance … so please consider this lovely little lady if you’re suitable.  

UPDATE 20-11-21
Poor Greta isn't just a scared girl, she is a terrified girl. She needs a very experienced home, someone who truly understands her, on how scared she is. We still doesn't allow any human touch, will bolt past if you go near her. Doesn't walk on a lead. She does like other dogs, needs another dog/s. We have seen little steps forward. She will now stay in the same room as me, I even get a growly bark and a dance when I come down in the morning. She goes out to the toilet and comes in, this has taken a while as she was to scared to come back into the house.Their is no quick fix for Greta, she isn't going suddenly be your best friend in a few weeks or even a couple of months. She needs someone who will never give up on her, who has a lot of time and patience. Who doesn't expect anything from her. Who will allow her to slowly come round. When she does allow that first cuddle, it really will be like winning big on the lottery. Please only apply if you can tick every box. 


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.
