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.

09-06-22 Prue is a beautiful but extremely scared little lady who has come from her breeder to find a loving home. She doesnt not approach us to say hello and if we step towards her she will flee to the back of her kennel and hide away from us at the moment as she is feeling very overwhelmed. Prue is very much in need of an experienced home with a very safe garden. She needs a calm environment without any children as she would find them too much at the moment. Prue is a sweet girl she just has no idea what to expect from us at the moment so we will offer her gentle words and help her get used to being around us. She will need at least one kind resident dog to snuggle with in her new home and show her all about home skills such as house training and how to walk on a lead. 

20-06-22 UPDATE

So I’ve had the pleasure of having Prue moved to my section so I can work with her on her fears and try to boost her confidence. I love working with the scared dogs as it brings me so much joy to watch them come out of their shells and start learning how to trust. Prue is not the most scared dog I’ve ever worked with - but she definitely doesn’t think us humans are very kind - so I just need to show her that’s not true.
I only met her for the first time this morning, but I made sure to take time out of my day to sit in her kennel with her and just spend time with her. She did run away when I went to approach her, but she did surprise me by accepting a fuss when she was settled in her bed. Her biggest fear is being handled, so this is what I will work on with her the most. At the moment if she’s handled incorrectly she will nip, so this is something her new owners will need to be aware of and prepare for. I did manage to pick her up today with no problems, but I made sure I was very slow with her and did it all on her terms.
Her new owners will need to be very understanding and patient with her, and be okay with the fact she won’t blossom into a different dog overnight. It’s going to take a lot of time, love and kindness to get Prue to where she needs to be, so her new owners will need to be up to the challenge. It will be hard work, but please believe me when I say it will be so worth it. The feeling you’ll get when she wags her tail for the first time, approaches you for a sniff for the first time, gives you a kiss for the first time … there’s just no feeling like it. You’ll be completely overjoyed. So please consider welcoming this poor little soul into your family, she really needs to finally be out of kennels.

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.
