25-03-22 Shirley is a beautiful but frightened cockapoo who has come to us from her breeder. She is so  scared she will snap out of fear if pushed. She will need an adult only home with experience of very scared ex breeders. Shirley will need at least on friendly resident dog to help her settle but she isn't keen on other dogs snuggling up with her at the moment. She is toilet trained in her foster home but may need reminding in her new home. She loves the garden, but does have a big fear of coming back into the house, so at this time needs either a small to medium garden or if big needs a small fenced area around door and needs 6ft fencing. She is very beautiful, loves toys (when no one is looking) can go upstairs but not down, this is the only time she allows her foster mum to handle her, in the morning to carry her downstairs, as she sleeps in her foster mums bedroom. If you have the time and patience to help Shirley please apply.

15-07-22 UPDATE
Dear sweet Shirley is still a very untrusting girl. I have manged to give her, her first ever haircut and she did really well. She still doesn't like human touch and is still nervous of everything. She needs a very experienced home who will let her take things at her pace. She doesn't walk on a lead, but does like the garden. Lots of time and patience is what Shirley needs.  

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.
