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.

17-06-22 Hint is a lovely girl who has come from her breeder to find a new home. She is a lovely girl but she has never been in a home before and so everything is all new to her. She allows us to handle her and pick her up but she doesnt understand why we would want to do this, She is most confident when she is around her kennel friends and will need at least one resident dog in her new home to help her learn about home life and learn skills such as house training and how to walk on a lead. Hint can live with teens who understand that she needs lime and space to settle. Hint needs plenty of patience time and TLC.  Hint has a passport.

07-08-22 UPDATE
Hint has been here a while now ,and when she came was very scared of everything but her progress is going in the right direction.  She's clean indoors always running down the garden to toilet.  She sleeps quietly all night and I've not heard her bark yet. Hint will let you hold her for a little while but not on your lap but you can fuss her on the settee as you pass. She runs away from you outside so you wait for her to come in and then you can fuss her. She takes treats nicely and looks forward to meal times. This dosent sound like much progress but from her first days here it really is positive steps.

Here are some new photos of Hint, she is making baby steps in her progress. She lets me clean her eyes and clean her ears too. She will try to get away if you pick her up so that’s a work in progress, but she will let you fuss her when in her bed or as you pass as long as theres no picking up. It took 3 days for her to let me put a harness on without trying to escape and she now lets me first time although I don’t think she will be walking for a while yet. To cut her fur I sit beside her on the settee and do what I can with scissors, time is the healer with this little dog and as much love as you have.

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.
