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.

14-07-2022 Chainie has come to us from a breeder.  She is a girl in need of a special home as she is  extremely scared.  She will need an adult only, calm and very experienced home who have had scared dogs like her before and understand how to work with her to overcome her fears.  She has dry eye and will need drops for this for the rest of her life so her adopters need to bear this in mind as it will not be able to be covered by insurance.
Until she settles into her new home Chainie is a potential flight risk so the garden and house must be very secure and there must be at least one other confident dog to help her and who will allow her to cuddle up with them for comfort and support if she wants to. 
Chainie has never been in a home so this is going to be completely overwhelming at first and she will need owners with endless time and patience to help her learn about house training etc.  At first the garden may be as scary and the inside of the home so getting in the garden and then back in the home could take time.  She will have no idea about lead walking and this is something else her new owners will need to work on once they have gained her trust.  They will need to start practising in the garden and then progress outside in quiet areas and the importance of double leading Chainie cannot be stressed enough.  In time and with owners who really understand her needs she will slowly start to flourish and will return her adopter's love tenfold.

What a sweet girl Chanie is, she enjoys a little run around the garden with my other young foster dog so will definitely need another dog in her new home, one that will cuddle with her.
She’s obviously had a bit of a time of it in the past, but she’s a dog that in time is going to be a lovely little companion. She will need eye drops, but these are inexpensive & she is getting to know that she has the drops put in through out the day. She’s not keen on walking on the lead at the moment but we are working on getting her used to it.
I think she would be content with a lovely garden to potter around in, I think she deserves to be spoilt for the rest of her life.

Chainie (Cherry) has come such a long way in the 3 weeks she’s been here.  She now walks on a harness, only in very quite areas and always with another dog.  She’s still not keen on having the harness put on, it’s still all very new to her and it frightens her .
Chainie knows the feeding and bedtime routine’s and can now run up and down the stairs with the gang . She sleeps in our bedroom with out a peep. She will of course regress for a few days when she goes to her new home but then her confidence will start to build.
Her eyes are much improved and I only put the drops in 3 times a day . She can still be nervous at times but it will happen less as her confidence continues to grow.
Chainie would love a playful companion and I think in the months to come will be ready for adventures, but she‘s not going to be a dog that will like being around lots of people. 

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.
