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.

09-08-21 Bryony is an extremely pretty girl who has come to us from a breeder.  She is shy and timid and does try to hide from us when we enter her kennel so she will need a home where there is at least one other dog to help her confidence.  Bryony does settle once in your arms but she is going to need a home with plenty of time, love and patience to help her adjust and settle.  As she has never lived in a home before Bryony will need to learn about house training and lead walking and this will not happen overnight but with the help of her canine friend(s) she will start to copy them and this will help her learn.  Bryony has a possible hernia which our vet will have a look at and repair if necessary when she is spayed.  She has a passport. Bryony has a high grade heart murmur and this will need to be monitored by her adopters and their vet and can be discussed further with the rehoming team.

02-09-21 UPDATE

Bryony is an utter sweetheart. Today, she saw the vet again about her heart, which unfortunately has a grade 6 murmur. The good news however, is she has started her medication which should help her a lot and may even help stabilise her breathing a bit which has been abnormal. There is also the chance she will soon have to visit a specialist to have a scan amongst other things. She also had a bath today which she did not approve of, however she smells nice now!
Medical complaints aside, Bryony has settled into her home life remarkably well for an ex-breeding lady and is the perfect house guest. Her first action when I placed her on my living room floor was to follow my dogs up onto the sofa, where she stayed and snoozed for hours. She worked out straight away how to use the doggy steps leading up to my bed too and slept beside me and my girl all night without a peep. She will be a beautiful addition to any doggy family, she relies heavily on other dogs and seems to particularly enjoy the company of similar small/medium breeds.
She remains nervous, but is extremely happy for me to handle her and if I kneel down and call her she will come running up to me and let me scoop her up in my arms. She does not appreciate trying to be walked yet and will put up a major fuss if you try to do so, so her harness training will have to be done very gradually and as of right now, she would need carrying. Her confidence is getting there already, she is very flighty if there were to be a sudden noise, a door closing behind her, dropping something, bangs from vehicles on the road, so she really does need a quiet an calm environment to prosper, ideally without younger children.
Needless to say there will be more updates. Without sounding too picky, her new owners will need to understand her condition and be financially able to deal with future vet trips and medication for her. She needs spoiling, she wants to sleep close to you on your bed, she wants nice food, she wants to learn how to walk and experience a walk in the park with her family. Please don't pass her up for medical reasons though, she is so much more than that, a beautiful temperament, Bryony will make somebody very, very lucky.

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.
