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.

24-03-22 Quaver is a sensitive soul who has come to us from a breeder.  She is stunning but very frightened and flinches when you go to touch her.  She is  a potential flight risk so she needs an adult only home with a very secure garden.  Quaver is extremely dependent on her kennel friends and shakes like jelly when she is away from them so she will definitely need a home where there is at least one other dog who is calm and kind and who will allow her to snuggle up in bed with them if she wants to.  She has never lived in a home so this will be overwhelming at first and she will need time to settle and adjust.  She will need owners who understand her fears and worries and are prepared to work with her.  Quiver has no idea about house training or lead walking and these are things that she won't learn overnight so her owners much be prepared to take things at her pace.   They must also understand the need to double lead her when they first start to take her out.  In time she will start to trust and you will see her blossom into the happy cocker girl she should have alway been.  Quaver has a passport

08-05-22 UPDATE
Quaver is slowly becoming more trusting and after 2 weeks she accepts being touched without shaking while she is in her bed.  On her terms she lets you tickle her under her chin.
She loves the other dogs here and with them she is full of fun and her zoomies are pure joy to see. She  stays with me watching all that’s going on and toilet training is going well.  She holds on for you to open door. She is a dog that acts like a puppy when she overcomes her fears and so gentle it will be love at first sight.

Quaver is a gentle girl and is now clean indoors and waits for you to let her out to toilet. She has stopped trembling when I fuss her but a quick movement is enough to make her move away or crouch down. She is very keen to get to the cat so a cat free home is a must.  I'm sitting with her on settee stroking and holding her paws to show touch is a good thing. When she does wheelies around the garden she shows the fun dog that’s inside and the wonderful girl she is.  I've given her 2 baths since being here and although so frightened she did not try to bite.  She is going too make a wonderful friend.  

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.
