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.

01-09-2021 Desire has come to us from a breeder to find her foever home.  She is very pretty but doesn't have many teeth left and has an old ulcer scar on her left eye.  This doesn't bother Desire at all, she eats fine  and sees well out of her right eye.  She will need an adult only home where there is at least one other dog to help her with house training and lead walking and to give her some confidence about living in a home with people.  In time and with owners who can give her everything her little heart desires, Desire will become a wonderful friend.

26-09-21 UPDATE
Desire has settled in here very well. Although she has only been here for a week she has come on leaps and bounds. For the first two days she would have liked to stay in the garden away from us humans. Now she realises we are not going to harm her she is happy to come in for a smooth and sit on our lap for a cuddle. She has had a bath and seemed to enjoy it.
Desire is still nervous of different things loud noises etc and she will not take treats from you, but I am sure this will not take long. She love's her food and a nice soft bed and will snuggle up to our dog's and sleep quietly all night.
She is a clever little dog and is gaining confidence every day. She still has a long way to go but she is quick to learn. The house training is going very well. We have only had a few accidents at night. Desire needs someone who will work with her to gain her confidence and bring her out of her shell, but she is well on her way. The most important thing she needs is LOVE and lots of it.  

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.
