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.

15-07-22 Chutter is a very worried little girl who has come from her breeder to find a loving home. She will do her best to scamper away from us when we approach her and will hide behind her bed because she has no idea what to expect from us at the moment. She is hard to catch but desperately in need of TLC. She longs to stay with other dogs and needs to be around them for her to feel calm and relaxed. We will consistently be kind and hopefully she will get more used to us in time. Chutter will need an experienced adopter who is confident but has infinite patience to help her make progress. She will need an adult only home where there is at least one resident dog to boost her confidence and show her home skills such as walking on a lead and house training. She will need regular trips to the groomer.  Dogs like Chutter are a project but one so worthwhile that you will be filled with pride and love for this girl as she starts to shed her fears, relax and begin to love her new life.

Chutter came to the rescue in July, as the weeks have passed she has finally started to enjoy being out in the sand school with her friends, she becomes very playful which is amazing to see! However, in her kennel she does become withdrawn and scared again so she is going to need a home where she will have someone with a lot of time to help her adjust. She is going to need a home where there is already a confident resident dog so that she can learn from them and have a snuggle buddy.

Chutter is a very nervous girl so we are looking for an adult only home with people who have the time and the patience she needs to be able to thrive. She’s never been in a home before, so they’ll need to be completely understanding and appreciate the fact she’s going to be very overwhelmed at first. There will need to be at least 1 kind and confident resident dog in the home for Chutter to follow around and copy, and snuggle and play with when she’s ready. She’ll need to learn the basics such as house training and lead walking (and everything in between), but having a resident dog there as a mentor will help her massively in these areas. It’s going to take a long time before Chutter is able to completely trust us humans, so her new owners will need to respect this and do everything they can to prove themselves to her. She probably hasn’t had a lot of human interaction in her life which is why she’s so skittish of us, so now I think she deserves to be shown all the love and kindness in the world.
She is playful with some of her kennel friends and she absolutely loves running around in my big play yard. She also loves toys and food, so these are things her new owners can keep in mind to win her over! She will approach me for a little sniff, but if I go to her to pick her up or handle her, she will run away and do everything she can to avoid being touched. She has never tried to bite me or even given me a warning, but I feel that she does have the potential to if she were to be handled incorrectly or too quickly. Slow and steady is the way to go with her, the same with all of our ex breeding angels. She just needs time in a loving home environment to help her realise that life isn’t as bad as she thinks it is .. and then hopefully she will thrive!

Chutter is still a nervous and timid girl with humans, but her overall confidence is definitely improving more and more every day. Her favourite time of day is play time in the big sand school and this is where she comes alive. She’ll run around with the other dogs, chase a ball, and just spend lots of time pondering around discovering all the new sniffs. She’s a lot happier when she’s out there than she is when she’s in her kennel, so I try to give her as much outside time as possible. When she’s in her kennel, she spends the majority of the day in bed with her friends. She really likes to snuggle with them so I would love to find her a home with a resident dog who will let her cuddle with them too. I would love it even more if they were also playful!
Human touch is still very scary to Chutter so I am working with her on this. I don’t think she had a lot of human interaction before coming here, so it’s all a bit overwhelming for her and it’s going to take quite a long time for her to get used to it I think. Her new adopters will just need to be understanding of the fact she’s not going to be a lovey dovey dog who wants to sit on their laps and have lots of fusses, but they’ll love and cherish her regardless. I think she’s a very sensitive soul who just wants a calm home environment where she can truly relax and start to come out of her shell .. and I hope she can find that home soon, because she’s really not the biggest fan of being in kennels. So please consider this beautiful girl.

Chutter is now In foster and adjusting well to life in a home. She is a very energetic, playful girl who absolutely loves her food . Human hands are still extremely scary for her and she is not at the stage to start lead walking yet but she will happily come over and take treats and lick and sniff me .Chutter is just enjoying the garden and the freedom a home brings without any pressure and it’s important that we go at a speed she can handle.
Preferably a dog pal that is as big as her. She really adores her doggie pals and gets on well with small dogs too but her play style can be a bit too much and would probably suit a her size or bigger. She loves her pals so her resident dog/ dogs must be willing to let her cuddle up 
Chutter is out about 9kg but is very leggy , she is full of beans and is desperately seeking a friend to get up to mischief with

Unfortunately, Chutter had to be returned from her foster home as she was too much for the resident smaller dogs. She is a very playful lady and she kept trying to get them to join in with her, but this resulted in them becoming afraid of her so it wasn’t working. Thankfully, she’s adjusted really well being back at the centre with me and she doesn’t seem too phased. She’s now kennelled with 2 Beagles who are very lively and playful, and she’s getting on with them really well. She’s also gained a lot of confidence since the first time she was with me, which is absolutely lovely to see and it goes to show she obviously made a lot of progress in her foster home. Human hands are still her biggest fear, but this is something I’m working with her on and I am really hopeful that I’m going to have a breakthrough with her soon. For the time being, she gets great pleasure in food, toys, being out in the big play yard, and having a snuggly bed under a heat lamp. 
Chutter will still need a calm and quiet home environment with people who have the time, the patience and the understanding to be able to settle her properly and prove to her that the world isn’t as scary as she thinks it is. She needs to have at least one playful resident dog who will also be accepting of sharing their bed with her if she wanted to, and be a good teacher when it comes to all things homey! 
She really is a darling girl who is trying ever so hard to be brave, she just needs help getting there. If you’ve got the time and space in your home and heart, please consider this special girl. 

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.
