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.

15-07-2022 Charlie is a lovely but very scared girl has come to us from a breeder.  She is worried about us and runs away when approached. She is super scared and will need an very experienced, calm, quiet and adult only home who have had scared dogs before and where there are no children or visiting children.  Charlie will need a slow pace of life where she is giving allowed to come round in her own time.   She has ulcers in both her eyes which our vet will look at a treat accordingly.
As Charlie has never been in a home 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 Charlie cannot be stressed enough.  In time and with owners who really understand her needs Charlie will gradually start to come out of her shell.  If you are the special person who can help her, please put in an application form.

Today I gave Charlie her first ever bath and groom .. doesn’t she look wonderful!? I’ve been working with this lovely lady since she arrived and her cheeky character makes me laugh every day. She absolutely adores her kennel friends and running around with them in the sandschool, but also likes to cuddle in bed with them afterwards. Her confidence has definitely improved a lot since she arrived, but she is still very wary of human touch. She will run away when I go to approach her, but I can pick her up with no problems at all. She’s just very flinchy - but that’s to be expected. She will approach me for a little sniff and she has given me a few kisses before, but only if I sit on the floor with her for a little while first!
Charlie will still need a resident dog in her new home to follow around and to copy. She’ll need to learn all the basics such as house training and lead walking, and having a doggy friend to learn from will do her the world of good. She will probably find home living quite overwhelming at first because everything will be completely brand new for her, but her new owners will need to understand this and be patient with her. Little things that are normal to most dogs such as the TV or even stairs, may take a little while for her to get used to. Just don’t give up on her .. she will get there.
Charlie has spent her whole life in a kennel environment and I’m keeping everything crossed that someone will come and rescue her soon. Just imagine spending your whole life not knowing any love or kindness .. it just breaks my heart. Please don’t keep her waiting much longer.  

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.
