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.

19-05-2022 Apple is a lovely sweet girl who has come to us from a breeder.  She is a little apprehensive when she first meets you but settles quickly and starts to become quite inquisative and is happy to sit on your lap while she watches everything that's going on around her.  Apple would like a calm, quiet adult only home where there is at least one other dog to help her adjust to life in a home. She would like any other dog in her new home to be male and larger than her. She will need to learn about house training and lead walking and these will come with time, love and patience.  Apple has had her coat shaved but this will soon grow back and she will be even more beautiful than she alread is.

Apple is one of the sweetest dogs I’ve ever worked with and my heart just fills with joy every time I’m around her. She’s such a happy and grateful little girl and all she wants is company. Her tail never stops wagging when she’s around me and she’s trying so incredibly hard to be brave. She really wants love and fuss, but she’s still not 100% sure yet so will flinch when you go to touch her. Saying that, she has learnt to enjoy a gentle scratch under her ears, and she’ll army crawl towards you to get closer every time you stop. She’s just very submissive and timid around us humans at the moment, but I really don’t think it will take her long to learn to fully trust.
She loves toys and has a very playful side to her. Her face lights up when I throw a ball or play tug with her, and she does also play with her kennel friend! She’s currently kennelled with a male Pug X who is a bit bigger than her, and she gets on with him very well. She has been a bit of a madam towards small female dogs since being with us, so we are now looking for a home with a male dog that is larger than her. She is a very small little girl, so Westie size and upwards would be fine. If she doesn’t get adopted within the next couple of weeks, I will assess whether or not she could potentially be an only dog if her confidence continues to improve as well as it has - however at the moment, she will still need a resident dog.
Pictures really don’t show off how beautiful this girl is - and her personality just matches. She SO wants to love and be loved, she just needs the right home to gently encourage her and show her that there’s no need for her to be worried about us humans anymore. When she comes out of her shell fully, she is going to be the most wonderful little girl …. Believe me!!!

t’s been 2 weeks since Apple got moved to my section and I can’t tell you enough how in love I am with her. She’s making very good progress with her confidence and is a lot less hand shy now. She no longer flinches when I go to fuss her, but she still will if you make a sudden movement or a loud noise - which is completely understandable!
I began harness training with her today too, and she was absolutely amazing. For her first time out, she was one of the best I’ve ever seen. We were out walking for a good 15 minutes and she absolutely loved it .. especially all of the new smells. She was nervous going through gates and cars passing, but that was to be expected. It won’t be long at all until she’s walking on just a lead like a normal dog.
If you read my last update I did write that Apple could possibly be homed as an only dog soon if her confidence kept improving. So, because of how well she managed with walking on a harness today, I now think she can be homed as an only dog … BUT, only in a very kind and caring home with people who will be there most of the time, and have the time to settle her in properly. She will of course be timid and nervous in the home to begin with, so her new owners will need to be very understanding of this and be patient with her. She would like a cuddly bed of her own, and then I think she may like to join her humans on the sofa later down the line once she’s settled.
This little girl is one in a million, and I honestly cannot wait to see photos of her in her new home having all the loves and fusses she wants. Please don’t keep her waiting much longer!!  

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.
