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.

09-09-2021 Tahini is a 12 week old Hush puppy who has come to us unsold from her breeder as she has a Grade 6 heart murmur. This will need to be investigated by a specialist vet and will potentially need surgery. This of course comes at a cost but, depending on her diagnosis, her life could depend on it.
Tahini does not know that she s different and is already beginning to settle into a local foster home. She is playing beautifully with other young pups and is currenty shy of people but is learning all the time that it's ok to have fun and be a puppy. She deserves to have a wonderful home and a full life.
Tahini has the longest silky ears you could wish for and is very much Basset shaped, with black cocker colouring - she is just lovely!
Due to her medical needs we would suggest she goes to a home without children at this time. We would be able to consider rehoming her to some special person who is prepared to invest in her future and take on her vet bills to get her through referral and potential surgery, who is braced for a diagnosis that could be operable and be able to afford to support her through this or, if not operable is prepared to take her on knowing that her future is not promised. Her heart condition will not be insurable.
If we do not find such a person then we will fundraise and refer her ourselves here and she will remain in our care untl she is discharged from the vets care.
Tahini will need to attend puppy training classes and be spayed at 6 months old.

 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.
