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.

08-04-22 Gertie has come to us from a breeder to find her forever home. Gertie is an extremely worried and shut down girl who is looking for a very special home with someone who has experienced with terrified ex-breeding dogs like her. She will need a calm and quiet adult only home with at least one other confident dog who will be her friend and take her under their wing. Gertie is very unsure of our intentions at the moment and needs to be handled carefully as if she feels threatened she will panic and make the wrong decision. Gertie needs an adopter who will take things calmly and slowly at her pace and will leave her settle in on her own accord and not push her out of her comfort zone too much. With time and love, Gertie will blossom into the most wonderful girl, she just needs time to learn to trust and realise that nothing bad is going to happen to her ever again. She has never lived in a home before and her adopters will need to be kind and patient as she learns about home life and house training. In time, once her confidence and trust grows, she will also need to start learning all about wearing a harness and starting to walk on a lead, this will all be very scary for her at first and so will need a very gradual and gentle introduction.

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.
