29-05-2022 Yoghurt is a handsome  mini poodle boy who has come from a breeder to find a loving home He is a very scared boy at the moment and is going to need an experienced home to help him make some progress forwards at his own pace and within his comfort zone. Yoghurt has never known many people so has no concept of trusting us as yet and he does panic when approached. He will need a calm, quiet home with an understanding adopter who can see beyond his fear but also be mindful of it to ensure that he is not put in a position where he could make the wrong choices. He will need at least one small resident dog in his new home to boost his confidence and show him everything is ok. He will need to learn about house training and how to walk on a lead but more importanly he will learn how shed his fears and give his heart, trust and hope to humans. Yoghurt needs a home without children or visiting children, he needs your time, your commitment and your love in bucketloads. 

07-06-22 UPDATE

Yoghurt has been living in a quiet foster home for just over a week now and he is growing in confidence daily. From being frozen with fear when he first arrived, he is now often behaving like the lively and playful dog that he really is.
Yogi (as we call him in foster) is very respectful of our female dogs and he is particularly fond of following around our more active small dogs to see what mischief they are getting up to. Yogi is noise sensitive and hand shy, and he does still panic at times, for example in doorways or if he comes across something unfamiliar such as the washing flapping on the line! However, he is an affectionate boy and will come up to you for a gentle fuss or a snuggle on the settee.
Yogi is generally clean in the house, this is by way of us going out in the garden with him regularly throughout the day and him copying our dogs. He has started going out for walks, which he enjoys as long as it is somewhere quiet. His confidence will need to continue to be built up gradually as he is fearful if he sees or hears other dogs and people when out and about.
Yogi has a sweet nature and he is living with a cat and small furries.  

23-06-22 UPDATE
After 3 weeks with us, Yogi is settling well into home life. Although he still startles easily at loud noises and sudden movements, he quickly recovers and returns to being an affectionate, lively young dog who is enjoying his new life. It is a joy to watch him learning how to play, whether this is pouncing on a leaf, pushing a ball along with his nose, or carrying off a sock!
Yogi gets excited now when it is time to go out for a walk and he is gaining confidence on the lead and when out and about. Yogi travels quietly in the car, and we have started taking him to busier parks on some days. He is curious but cautious when meeting different dogs and people, and he will need adopters who are able to continue supporting him to build confidence with this. Yogi can be left without problem for a couple of hours, as long as he is with at least one other dog.

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.
