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.

27-04-22 Fizz has come to us from a breeder to find his forever home. He is a very scared boy at the moment and is overwhelmed to find himself here. He is much happier in the company of his kennel friends and she will need another kind and confident dog in his new home to be his friend. He is looking for a calm and quiet, adult only home with someone who has experience with nervous ex-breeder dogs. He is an older boy who is looking for a retirement home where he can spend his days being loved and relaxing with his new owners. He has never lived in a home before and this will be very new to him at first so his adopters will need to be kind and patient as he learns all about home life and things like house training and how to walk on a lead. With time and love he is going to blossom into the most wonderful boy. Fizz has a passport.

Well, that's certainly a change and a half! Today, Fizz was one of the lucky recipients of a groom, courtesy of our groomer.
Fizz, who is a larger boy remains a very scared boy, which is heartbreaking, he flinches to the touch, hides away in his kennel and relies very heavily on his kennel mates.
Fizz came into the rescue with one of the most horrendously infected ears I have seen in my eight years at Many Tears, it was very painful for him, it had a massive build-up of dirt and matted fur combined which has to be very delicately shaved and soaked off before we could even begin to treat it. Fast forward 3 weeks and Fizz's ear is now completely healed of infection and he seems so comfortable as a result, who knows how long he had to endure it but at least he's better now. However, the next thing to conquer for whoever his lucky new owners are, is his fear of being handled.
He needs a quiet environment to develop and very understanding, calm and patient owners. He has not yet been tried on a harness here at the rescue and I do not believe he is anywhere near ready, Fizz needs to be built up very slowly, the most basic of handling first and then when he's ready he can begin learning to walk on a harness in the security of his own garden.
In his kennel, as mentioned, Fizz will usually just hide away in his bed in the very back of the kennel, usually behind another dog. Speaking of other dogs, Fizz relies so heavily on their company for security and reassurance and he would absolutely need at least one other dog in his new home, ideally being of the small to medium size as that's what he seems most comfortable around. If you are interested in Fizz, please consider filling in an application form, it will no doubt be a long road in terms of earning his trust, however it will be so worth it in the end.

Fizz is a real sweetie with a real longing for affection but has to learn to trust. He has lots of bad memories to replace with good ones, but as he's really intelligent that won't be an issue for long.
His confidence grows with each new and confident experience. He has a distrust of being touched which decreases with each positive touch. Gradually gives in to being touched gently and affectionately.
Considering what Fizz has had to endure until Many Tears helped him he's amazing. Has so much potential and a great sense of humour.
He's had a bath and loved being dried and later groomed. So proud of how he has changed in a short time. 

09-06-22 UPDATE
Fizz still isolates himself but is improving daily and has joined in sleeping on the bed in the mornings. He had a slight reactive moment earlier when l was used a hand signal to block one of his panic dashes.
At this stage he should not be in a home with children or elderly or anxious adults. He's purely acting out of fear caused by his previous life, and will come out of it as he learns to trust and accept touching and hands near to him doesn't mean harm or pain.
He has accepted the harness and loves going for walks now, although new experiences still induce an understandable wariness until he understands he is still safe.

Fizz was a great joy at the vets today. He's improving leaps and bounds and now learning people are nice and good. His bad life is behind him. He walks beautifully and loves meeting other dogs and people. Loves car rides! A family with patience and lots of love and teenagers would have a wonderful dog to be so proud of and make progress together.
He makes me laugh and makes me proud. He's a dog with so many talents that he's kept hidden. He deserves a loving and wonderful family life. He is now sunbathing and sleeping in the garden after having a late breakfast!!
Fizz is just back from a dog walk supreme! EVERY dog we met fell in love with him and played and fussed him! He's a big hit with small dogs, big dogs, young dogs and older dogs, female and male dogs! Humans aren't too bad either! No wonder he's smiling! Walks well on the lead, loves his harness, enjoys walks now and is gaining confidence on a daily basis. He's a treasure.

Fizz now really enjoys going for walks and is relaxed on the lead.

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.
