Location: In Foster in
Ruislip, Middlesex

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.

10-09-2021 Wookie is a charming lady who is really sweet but timid.  She has come to us from a breeder and very worried about her new surroundings at the moment but she will approach you for a fuss - she is just shy and unsure.  Wookie will benefit from a home where there is at least one other dog to help her adjust and settle into her new life but in the right circumstances she could be an only dog.  She knows how to walk on a lead but may need to learn about house training but this shouldn't take her long to learn.  Wookie will need an active home as being part collie she will need plenty of exercise.  In the right home she could be homed with dog savvy, gentle and kind children who are at least 10 years old and can understand she needs time, love and patience. 

17-09-21 UPDATE

I’ve been working with this beautiful girl since she arrived here and the progress she’s made in such a short amount of time has been amazing. We’ve bonded so closely, she literally never leaves my side. I’ve grown very fond of her and I would genuinely take her home with me if I could. She is just wonderful in every way - she’s extremely affectionate, she walks well on a lead, she gets on well with other dogs, she hardly ever barks, she’s almost kennel clean, and she just never does anything wrong. Whoever ends up adopting this angel are going to be the LUCKIEST people in the world … trust me.
Because of how close she’s gotten with me and how much her confidence has rocketed, I do now think she could be an only dog in a very special and experienced home. Her new owners will need to have a lot of spare time to guide her and teach her all about home living and show her that the outside world isn’t as scary as she thinks it is.

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.
