Newport, Gwent

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.

22-08-2021 Pippi is a very special girl in need of a VERY special adult only home.  She has arrived here from a breeder poor skin and with extremely limited vision.  She is blind in her left eye and has limited vision in her right eye so Pippi is going to need a really wonderful home who can help her adjust to her new world and life.  Pippi is also going to need the help of an extremey gentle and kind resident dog who will be happy to act as her guide and companion.  We believe she has been bullied by other dogs in the past probably due to her lack of vision as she arrived here with a punture wound to her ear. With their help she will learn about house training and lead walking which will be possible even though she is blind.  If you are the extra special person who can take her into your heart and home them please apply. Pippi is a very special girl in need of a VERY special adult only home.

Pippi has been here for nearly a month now, and in that time she has really come out of her shell.
She is still quite nervous but does approach me now and is still learning to trust the people she knows.
Pippi is blind in her left eye and has limited vision in her right eye, but this doesn't stop her! She walks beautifully on a harness, (at her pace,) and loves taking in all the scents around her. Today I took Pippi down to the field and she was absolutely amazing and loved it. We walked around for a bit getting all the sniffs in and then she decided a nap in the grass was what she wanted next!
So we had some lovely snuggles and snoozes (and of course a photoshoot) in the long grass.
Pippi will definitely need another dog to live with, and this must be a kind and gentle dog. I hope she won't have to wait too much longer.

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.
