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.

13-12-21 Rhea has come to us from a breeder to find her forever home. She is a shy and timid little girl who doesn't know much of the world and is very overwhelmed to find herself here. When around her kennel friends she's happy and excitable but once you enter her kennel she will freeze and run away. For this reason Rhea will need at least one other kind dog in her new home to be her friend and take her under their wing. This will help her settle in to her new home and learn lots of new skills like house training and how to walk on a lead. Rhea would be best suited to a calm and quiet household where she can recieve lots of TLC as she starts to settle in and relax. Rhea has a microthalmic right eye, but her left eye is good and so this doesn't bother her or slow her down.

23-01-22 UPDATE

Rhea is a lovely little dog she has been in foster here with us for a week now and has come on so much. She is clean in the house and always goes in the garden to toilet. She loves nothing more than to sit on the sofa just taking everything in her stride.
Her original write up says that she has a microthalmic right eye, This means that her right eye is smaller than normal for the breed as it failed to form normally this has no affect on her at all she sees perfectly well and gets around no problem you can hardly notice it.
She loves her food and eats really well she does prefer to be fed away from the others and has been left on her own without the company of other dogs and doesn’t mind it at all she also sleeps all night without the company of the dogs and is perfectly happy to do so. She loves to go out into the garden and have a little stroll around she is perfectly happy with the other dogs but does seem to prefer time on her own for this reason I believe she can be an only dog.
She can be a little jumpy when you first approach her but once you have picked her up she settles lovely in your arms and loves a cuddle. She is happy for you to put a harness on her and is getting used to having the lead on, she doesn’t yet go on walks but I don’t think it will be long before she’s used to the lead it will just take a little more time and patience. She doesn’t seem too fussed about going for walks at the moment and really does love to just sit on the sofa and chill she really is a sweetheart.

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.
