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.

28-08-2022 Helen is a darling girl who has come to us from a breeder.  She has no fear at all and is very calm and confident around people and loves to sit on your lap and watch the world go by.  Helen will make a perfect companion for someone.  She has arrived here with huge umbilical hernia and she bunny hops when walking so she will be seeing our vet as soon as possible.  Helen would love a home where there is at least one other dog and this will help her to learn about house training and lead walking but in the right circumstances we may consider homing her as an only dog.  We are looking for a calm and gentle home for this special girl and whoever adopts her is going to be very loved and very lucky.
During her vet check, our vet discovered that Helen has a Grade 5 heart murmur. She has started medication for this and it is something that her new adopter and their vet will need to continue to monitor and will not be covered by insurance.

An absolutely beautiful girl, little Helen is a dream of a dog brimming with character. She's confident with people and dogs and will happily approach anyone she meets with her tail wagging and eyes aglow.
Helen's settled quite nicely into her daily routine. She accepts her tablets each morning and chomps them down with no struggle or fuss. She loves running out into the play yard with her kennel friends and also enjoys going for walks with the many volunteers that have made her acquaintance since first coming to the rescue.
Unfortunately for Helen, any dog with health concerns will naturally draw less attention than they would otherwise. Helen runs the risk of staying in kennels far longer than she deserves, and I urge anyone who wants to give this stunning dog a chance to spread the word that she is desperate and more than deserving of a loving home of her own.  

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.
