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.

03-10-22 Hopcyn originally came to us from a breeder a few months ago, he was adopted but sadly has been returned as he was a little too much for his adopters. Hopcyn is a big poodle but not quite as big as standard size (he weighs 18kg). He has the start of cataracts in his eyes but is still able to see and manages well.
Hopcyn is a lovely and gentle boy who can walk well on a lead and travels well in the car. He would like another resident dog in his home to be his friend and would need this dog to be female. We are told that he is almost fully housetrained and that he sleeps quietly all night without a peep. He is still a little handshy and worried of meeting new people but has really started to come out of his shell and has blossomed into a wonderful lad. Hopcyn would like to find a home with someone who is around most of the time and who is able to take him on lots of long, sniffy walks as he loves to sniff. His adopters must be able to have him groomed regularly to prevent his coat from matting. Hopcyn is a little star and just needs someone to see how brightly he can shine. He cannot be homed with cats.

22-10-22 UPDATE

Hopcyn is doing really well in his foster home and his fur is really starting to grow back after being shaved..  House training is nearly there.  His growing in confidence when meeting new people and loves a fuss.   Hopcyn likes other dogs and shows a playful side  so would love a playful female dog in his new home.

24-11-22 UPDATE

Hopcyn has been with us for a couple of weeks now and the changes in him can clearly be seen.  He's a lot more confidence around humans and has started to play with toys.  He now takes treats from your hands and just loves a good fuss and is happy to get on the sofa with you.
Hopcyn walks on a lead but loud noises and big crowds do make nervous but given time we're sure he'll get past this and he loves to go out in the car. His toilet training his getting there and he has started to let you know he needs out but he does forget himself sometime.
Hopcyn would like a cat free home and one without male dogs as sometimes he does take issues with them but he's happy to be around our girls.
We recently took Hopcyn round to the groomers and our groomers said he was amazing and had no issues with the grooming process at all.  We do think that Hopcyn may be a poodle cross as he does look so much like a labradoodle rather than a full blown poodle.

08-01-23 UPDATE

Hopcyn is really coming on well although hes not perfect and still has the occasional accident in the house. hopcyn likes to be around you and is like a white shadow whenever you move to do anything. he like going out in the car and enjoys his walks although he still gets a little scared around big crowds. we took hopcyn to an enclosured field which we hire out and he loved it he was off lead and loved running around with a few of our other dogs. hopcyn does need regular grooming which potential adopties must be aware of and also he no good with cats or male dogs that are his size or bigger. hes a lovely lad who has started to enjoy a fuss and is happy to share the sofa with you.

19-01-23 UPDATE

Hopcyn is coming on really well.  His lead walking is getting better and so is his house training. Hopcyn is a loving lad who can be a little timid at times. We took hopcyn to an enclosed field we hire with a few of our other dogs and he loved every minute of it being free and off lead and ran around like a puppy. We also had him groomed again and he was a little champ.  This is something his new owners need to be aware of as he does need grooming at least every few months. Hopcyn can be funny with cats sometimes and also with male dogs bigger than him so for that reason we would rather he be rehomed to a cat free home with girl dogs or smaller boy dogs.

27-04-22 UPDATE

Hopcyn is just a lovely boy who's looking for his forever home. He'd love somewhere that's cat free and with another dog (preferably a girl or a boy who is smaller than him) to help him with everything that he needs to know. Hopcyn does walk on a lead and is almost house trained.  He loves his food and treats and also likes a good fuss. Hopcyn has started to get excited when you come home now and loves to follow you everywhere to see what your doing.

Hopcyn is coming on really well he is walking on a lead and love to go out in the car. Hopcyn is shy at first but once he get to know you he is a really loving boy his house training is almost there now 

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.
