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.

06-01-22 This lovely girl is Sage, she has come to us from a breeder to find her forever home. Sage is a very lovely girl but she is quite worried to find herself here at the moment. She is quite unsure of everything as it's all so new to her, but she does try so hard to be confident, bless her. Sage will need at least one other resident dog in her new home to be her friend and take her under their wing. She has never lived in a home before so her adopters will need to be kind and patient as she learns all about things like house training as well as how to walk on a lead. With time and love she will blossom into the most wonderful little companion. Sage has a hernia which our vet will take a look at and mend and she is also missing a few teeth but this doesn't bother her.

Hello. I am a pretty little girl with red hair! I travelled from Wales to Dover yesterday to stay with a Foster pack. I sang in the car for about 20min then i was quiet. When I reached my destination I came out of my crate and peed and pooped in the garden. I had a nose round the garden then went in the big kennel called a house. I decided it was easier to walk round on two legs as I can see surfaces so much better this way. I tried to get in the bin but would not take a treat from a hand so foster mum is not sure if I am nosey or hungry. So now the kitchen door is closed unless I am accompanied.
I duck when you approach me but I do like a good stroke and gentle fuss. I settled in a bed and watched TV for the evening by foster mums feet. I met the cat, nose to nose, no problem. I am not sure about my foster family, they are all bigger than me so I am not really bothered about them. Foster mum wonders if smaller dogs in my forever home may suit me better.
We all had dinner together with no problems. But wow those labrador eat fast! I prefer soft food and left my biscuits. I decided over night that I would sleep cuddled up next to foster mum, not usually allowed but I enjoyed it.
This morning I have a harness on and have been on a lead round the garden. We had breakfast now I am sleeping next to foster mum whilst she works. My tail wags when I get stroked and at tea break I decided I would take a venison strip from foster mum. So either I am a quick learner or have expensive taste!
So, I am beautiful, I am friendly with dogs and cats and people who will be gentle, calm and reassuring with me. I may sing in the car until I settle. I am fine in the house and like a warm bed. I am good with food although prefer soft food at the moment.
I would suit a person working from home or a retired person /couple as I like to be with you and perhaps a smaller than a labrador companion. I do duck but like attention so you will need to be calm. I will need patience and practice to go for a walk as I am not brave enough yet so you will need time for me to grow in confidence. Apparently I will be a lovely companion for some lucky family. I just need you to find me! I am doing really well in a short time so with love and care I will blossom to a fabulous girl.

Hello. Me again. FM is just so pleased and proud of me, she said I had to let you know. After another night sleeping next to FM when asked this morning if I fancied a walk I decided to go. I wobbled a bit as we went out of the gate but then trotted round. So just to see if it was a fluke, she asked again at lunch time. So I have been again! So walking on the lead is a doddle now. I am also getting into food and will take treats. Obviously I am still shy, but apparently a really quick learner. Sx  

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.
