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 Helly has come to us from a breeder.  She is absolutely terrified and runs and hides behind her bed as soon as she sees you and won't come out until you've gone.  Helly will need an adult only and very experienced home who have had scared dogs like her before and understand how to work with her to overcome her fears.  Until she settles into her new home Helly 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. 
Helly 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 will 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 Helly cannot be stressed enough.  In time and with owners who really understand her needs she will slowly start to find out that life is not a scary as she thought and her adopters will be rewarded tenfold by watching her transform.

23-08-22 UPDATE

Helly is still a timid girl, she enjoys being around her kennel friends and likes to run around the play yard with them, howeve she is still nervous of people so is going to need a quiet, calm environment with no children and someone who has the time to work with her. She will need a confident resident dog so she can follow and learn from them. 

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.
