29-04-22 Constance originally came to us from a breeder and was adopted but has sadly been returned to her foster home as she did not settle in her home.
Constance, dear Constance is a beautiful Daxie who is gentle, kind and altogether a wonderful young lady. Constance is a biggish Daxie weighing around 12kg. She is friendly and respectful to the other dogs here (living with around 9 others both male and female). She has a loyal nature. She loves to have fun, rides in the car and loves a good charge around my secure field.
Constance is unassuming and undemanding. She loves being on the sofa (with a soft blankie over her when it's chilly) She sleeps blissfully, all night through, in the family bedroom never moving out from under her own duvet.
Constance walks on a lead, is house trained (occasional mistakes) and is altogether pretty much perfect. BUT, and there is a but. Constance was adopted and returned after 7 months. Sadly, she could not adjust, and found the (very kind) man of the house just too hard to accept. She never got past growling at him and, in her fear and stress, even bit him on a few occasions. Constance now finds meeting new people VERY worrying.
Constance will do best in a single, woman only home with several kind, tactile resident dogs to shield her, befriend her and be up for playing with her too. Constance needs us to get things right for her, so we will be very exacting in trying to achieve the very best match.

30-08-22 UPDATE
Constance remains very concerned about meeting people. She can display negative behaviours like growling, but this is not the real Constance. The real Constance is gentle and kind. Sadly she feels she must protect herself from the perceived threat of stranger danger!
Constance loves the other dogs here. She is playful and thoroughly enjoys a race around the garden with the others. She also loves her time in my secure field where she can do her own thing at her own pace.
Constance cannot do stairs due to her long back and heavy body. She is not that comfortable about being carried (up the stairs) so a Bungalow would be a real plus for her. She can jump up on to the sofa fine, although sometimes uses the dog steps provided.
Constance will find it extremely hard to trust. She will not cope with a busy household with lots of visitors coming and going. She will need a SINGLE PERSON only home. She will also need several kind friendly dogs in her new home too.  

Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

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.
