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.

26-09-2021 Krisp is a stunning but very worried girl who has come to us from a breeder.  At first she is very wary about being approached and frightened about being touched but after a while she settles and does allow you to stroke her gently.  Krisp will need a home where there is at least one other dog to help her adjust and settle into home life with people.  She will need an adult-only quiet home who understand her fears and will give her the time and encourangement she needs to learn that life can be full of love, walks and kindness.  Krisp will have no idea about house training or lead walking but these will come with time, love and patience. Krisp has a Grade 2 heart murmur, she doesn't require any medication for this but it is something her adopters and their vet will need to monitor. Krisp cannot live with cats or small furries.

Krisp has made good progress since arriving here, but is still very scared and wary of people. She will need a calm resident dog to show her the ropes, as well as patient people who will spend the time it takes helping her learn to trust. Krisp will need an adult only home with no small furries or cats.

Krisp is coming on well, her lead walking is getting lots better and she enjoys her walks up the road, but we keep her harness on in case she gets spooked. Krisp was kennelled with two confident labs and these helped her come out of herself, but sadly for Krisp they've been rehomed, and now she's with less confident dogs and has regressed a little, oh the power of a confident doggy friend.
Thanks to Lottie one of the staff members, I have discovered the power of squeezy cheese, if Krisp sees me with it, she's right by my side. I'm enjoying working with this lovely girl, if you have a confident dog and TLC, maybe Krisp will be the one for you.

Beneath a gorgeous, striking appearance is a rather timid girl holding out on the person that will help her to relax and come out of her shell.
We don't know much about what poor Krisp has been through in the past but she is a very nervous dog and is making small steps in terms of progress each and every day. She still has a ways to go but is already showing a few signs of trusts towards those spending time with her.
I personally haven't worked much with her since she came to the rescue but despite this she was calm enough for me to pet and put a slip lead on her with no fuss. She can be quite skittish and is startled by sudden movements and loud noises, but she will remain still so long as you appraoch her slowly and with reassuring calmness.
I took her out for a stroll on just a slip lead today and she did very well, was very easy to handle and didn't panic at passing cars. She does find strangers on the road to be very disconcerting however and prefers to give them a wide berth and to tuck in beside you for reassurance.
Being a timid girl, Krisp will benefit immensely from the presence of a confident resident dog in the home who can show her that humans aren't necessarily something to be afraid of and will help her to ease up in the home.

10-01-21 UPDATE
Krisp is still waiting in kennels and it is breaking my heart, she has come a very long way since arriving here at MT, but there is only so far kennels will take her.
She needs her own home now, somewhere she can truly relax and learn to enjoy the company of her humans and with dogs to play with.
Krisps new home must be an adult only home, with no cats or small furries, but she would be happy to live with another dog or dogs as long as they are cocker size or larger. Krisp loves to play and can be quite full on, but she is kennelled with a cocker who tells her when she's had enough and Krisp listens.
Krisp walks well on a lead now, although she is still nervous, and she especially loves her food which will help her new humans build a bond with her.  

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.
