28-09-2022 Tally is a very scared girl who has come to us from a breeder. She is extremely worried to find herself here and is much happier when she is with other dogs and will need at least one other in her new home to help her to settle in. This will help her learn about house training and lead walking etc but has she has never seen the inside of a home before this may be very overwhelming at first and she needs adopters who have the understanding she needs to flourish. She is looking for a home with adopters who have experience of scared dogs like Tally and who have a secure garden with at least 6ft fencing. Tally has an old scar on her face but it has healed well.  She is a beautiful soul looking for a kind and gentle adult only home with adopters who have plenty of time, love and patience to help her.

I’ve been working with this lovely lady for more or less the whole time she’s been with us, and it’s been a joy to watch her slowly start to come out of her shell. She really is getting more and more confident by the day, but human touch is still her biggest worry. If I sit on the floor in her kennel or out in the yard with her, she will approach me and give my hand a little sniff, but when I go to approach her she will run away and try to hide. This is something I’m working with her on, but I think it’s going to take a good while until she is able to fully trust us humans and our intentions. In general and when there are no humans around, she is a very happy and content girl .. I just wish she knew I’m not going to hurt her. I’ll keep doing everything I can to win her over though, and go at her pace so she doesn’t get too overwhelmed.
Tally absolutely loves her kennel friends, my big sand school, and food. She’s very playful with her friends and she always gets super excited when I introduce her to any new dogs. It would be lovely to find her a home with a resident dog who will play with her, but also snuggle up with her when they’ve finished. She shares her food, the beds and toys wonderfully with her friends .. although she does like to take the blankets out of the beds to play with! It’s really quite endearing to watch.
All in all, Tally is a very sweet girl who just needs to be shown a whole lot of kindness and patience. Her new owners will need to be completely understanding of her worries and her fears and work with her through them. She’s never been in a home before so everything will be super overwhelming for her at first, but as long as her new owners prepare for this and don’t have any expectations, everything will be ok. I really hope she doesn’t have to wait too long!

Tally is progressing really well, I'm so proud of what she has achieved. Tally is now walking on a lead very well, we started her on a harness and now she's comfortable with the lead. Putting a harness on has also helped her get used to being touched, and she will now come to me for her lead to be put on.
I always stroke her or give a back scratch, she's still not too sure about this but doesn't move away. Tally has come on so far that she even went out for a walk with some experienced volunteers and seemed to enjoy it.
Tally is still her playful self and even runs up to me, nudges me with her nose and skips off, she is an absolutely delightful girl. I think we need to insist on her having a playful resident dog to live with, Tally is kennelled with a GSD and a cocker but they aren't playful, so I put her out to play with a playful dog today, she is also learning to chase a ball and pick it up. This is one special lovely 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.
