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.

08-07-22 Vanya is a beautoful collie who is looking for her forever home. She has the most adorable ears! She is very matted but once she has had a good bath and a groom we think she will feel so much more comfortable and look very glam and beautiful indeed. 
Vanya is a nervous girl and she is going to need an experienced, collie savvy home to help her progress. She is worried about being around humans but she does accept being handled. She has a sore on her right leg that our vet will take a look at. This girl will need another dog in her new home to show her all about home life and help her learn about house training, how to walk on a lead and other such home skills. She will need a home without children as she is very skittish and scared at the moment. Patience and experience will be key for this girl as she will not transform overnight but if you give her a chance and go slow she is going to be amazing.

24-07-22 UPDATE
Vanya is in need of a confidence boost. We are sure there is a fisty little madam trying to get out but she is struggling to get over her nervousness. I get the impression she may be better with women than men as today when she heard a female socialisers voice she repeatedly emerged from inside her pen and barked as if she knew the voice. Its probably significant.
She usually spends her time in the corner of her kennel, though I sense the collie in her needs to be active, and is only just below the surface. I also think she is a one person dog only.
If you have collie experience you will already have a love of this breed. Please consider meeting Vanya and see if she is a dog you would enjoy brining the best out of. I believe with the right approach it is there for the taking, Vanya will need to be introduced to other dogs on a gradual basis as her nerves might get the better of her.

02-08-22 UPDATE
As a volunteer, I have been spending time with Vanya every week since she arrived. Today she seemed more comfortable being around me and I was so pleased she was sniffing, nuzzling and licking my hand whenever I stopped stroking her and asking for me to carry on.
I wanted to take her out of the kennel environment today to enjoy the sunshine. I carried her outside and discovered she enjoyed sniffing the grass and could walk on a lead. Her lead-walking is a work in progress but she went for a short walk with me today, with breaks for rolling over on her back and having belly rubs. I saw her look happy and smile to be out and it made my day.
It is early days for her confidence in meeting new people and passing traffic but she has made a start. She is very nervous around men, and when she hears male voices, but hopefully this will improve in time. She is a beautiful collie with the sweetest nature who just needs the right home, humans and resident dog to show her how good life can be.  

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.
