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.

13-05-2022 Winston has come to us from a breeder.  He is a very scared boy who will need an adult only home who have experienced scared dogs and who have a very secure garden as he is a potential flight risk.  Winston is only young and with owners who have the time, love and patience to help him he will come round.  He will need at least one other dog to help his confidence and who he can watch and then start to copy which will help him with house training and lead walking.  Winston is just a worried little boy who deserves the very best life.

24-05-22 UPDATE

Winston shows himself to be a lot braver when there is a kennel door between you and him. He'll run up to the kennel door and wag his tail and seem quite comfortable. When you then go into his kennel he is a little worried and will shy away and run into the back and stick with the others. But then when you sit down he will be one of the first to come up to you and give you a little sniff. He was quite happy lying down in the bed next door to the one I was sitting in and with more of that socialisation his confidence will grow and he will be more comfortable around people and get to the point where he quite happily will accept and want a nice little fuss.
When Winston is in the sand school, he gets the zoomies for the first 5 minutes and will run around with his tail wagging and a very happy grin on his face. He's a lot more confident around people when he is out in the sand school with you and will brave a sniff and then go potter around investigating and exploring with his friends. Winston likes to snuggle up with his kennel friends and would need a kind, friendly resident dog to introduce a home to him and give him confidence with people to show him by example that they're not scary and he's safe.

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.
