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.

22-12-21 Petra is the loveliest girl who has come to us from a breeder.  She is a real delight and greets us with a waggy tail and is eager to please.  In the right home and with experienced owners Petra would love a home with another dog but could be an only dog in the right circumstances.  You must be prepared to build her up to being left and she does love the company of other dogs so would need to be regularly socialised with other dogs if she was homed as a only dog.  Petra walks on a lead but may need house training so but this should take her too long to pick up.  She is a litte overweight so need a careful and she is lame on her left back leg so out vet will have a look at this.  Petra has a passport.

29-12-21 UPDATE
After being examined by our vet we believe that Petra's limp is due to a pulled cruciate and she will need to be on at least 4-10 weeks crate rest. We cannot be certain that it is not a torn ligament, which would need an operation. Please only apply for Petra if you are in the position where you would be able to have this investigated further and fund the cost of an operation should she need one in the future as this would not be covered by insurance.

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.
