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.

23-04-2022 Shiver is a very shutdown and hand shy girl who had come to us from a breeder.  She needs and adult only experienced home who have had scared dogs before and who will allow her to come out of her shell in her own time.  There must be at least one other dog in her new home who is kind and gentle and who will allow her to snuggle up in bed with them for comfort and support.  Shiver knows nothing about living in a home so will need to learn about house training and lead walking and these are things that may take her a little time to pick up.  For her the garden may be as scary as the home so her adopters must have all the time, love and patience in the world to help her learn.  Shiver is being treated for an ear infection and she has an ulcer in her right eye which our vet will have a look at.  She has an umbilical hernia which will be repaired when she is spayed.

24-05-22 UPDATE

Shiver is still very timid and scared and spends most of her day in her bed snuggled with her friend watching the world from there, she will happily go out into the sand school and is comfortable pottering around there and having a good sniff and a little play with her friend instead of just waiting by the gate. Shiver is not confident when people are in the kennel with her and will either run away or hide down in her bed, however today Shiver stayed in the run part just watching me while I sat on the other side of the door - this is a first for me and Shiver! Shiver likes wet food and she'll pop forward to get her bowl, carry it into a bed and take her time to eat it. Shiver would benefit from a more confident kind resident dog that would show her that humans can be kind and gentle with her and she can learn to trust them with time and love.

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.
