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.

24-11-21 Sage has come to us from a breeder to find her forever home. She is the most scared one in her kennel and and doesn't understand that human hands can be kind so needs a quiet and calm, adult only home, with someone who really understands her fears. She will need at least one other confident dog in her new home who can show her that life isn't too scary and help her to learn about house training and lead walking etc.  For a dog like Sage the garden is probably going to be as scary as entering a home so house training will need to start slowly and her owners must be prepared to be patience and understanding.. She will need a lot of TLC as she learns to adjust to her new life.  In time she will start to slowly embrace her wonderful new life which will be filled with love and kindness. Sage has a passport.

05-12-21 UPDATE
Sage is a really nervous dog who is extremely hand shy but interacts really well with with my 2 dogs. House training is going really well, one accident in the house because I was out a tad longer than planned.
The other after trying to take her outside for a walk!!!! I split my own dog walks at the moment so Sage has a babysitting dog as being left totally alone = howling and mess. Lead training is slowly getting better indoors but after one try at taking her out I have decided to work on her ability to be touched by me without freaking too much before we move forward
She can be left with my two dogs with no problem. She is still learning that I mean her no harm, have managed to scratch her ears without her jumping up in the air but sadly it’s going to be a slow process. She is such a lovely girl though and she watches everything I do with my 2 so hope she learns from them.  

Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

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.
