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.

30-09-22 Halo is a beautiful girl who has come from her breeder to find her loving home. She has some wounds and scars from before she arrived here and we will ensure that she is not bullied here. She is a shy girl who will hide away from you and dart into the back of her kennel for safety when you approach. She doesnt know what to expect and is just full of confusion and bewilderment. She has a gentle soul and will allow us to handle her easily she is just baffled as to why we would want to. We will try and introduce her to gentle handling and kind hands. She needs a lot of TLC and will definitely need at least one kind resident dog in her new home to show her about home life and be her friend. Halo is going to need an understanding, experienced home that has helped scared rescues before. She needs time, patience and a lot of kindness to help her make progress. Halo  will need a quiet home without children as she would find them too much to cope with. She has a grade 2 heart murmur which isn't causing her any issues, if she needs any treatment for it in the future it will not be covered on insurance. She is a lovely girl with so much potential, she just doesnt really know herself yet or how wonderful her life will become She has a passport

15-10-22 UPDATE
Halo is very shy and nervous, but not aggressive at all.  She need a very secure home and garden to ensure she stays save but is has started to show affection towards staff and volunteers that spend time with her.  As she is so worried Halo would benefit very much from a settled family with no young children.

21-11-22 UPDATE
Halo has been in foster with me for just a week. She arrived scared and wanting to keep out of my way. She is making steady progress, still not keen on me approaching her but once close I can handle her with ease. She will need an adult only home with at least one dog to learn from. She already toilets outside with my dogs and is now deciding to sit with us instead of hiding away from us. She is a beautiful dog just needs time and patience to develop at her own pace.

01-12-22 UPDATE
Halo is continuing to make steady progress in foster with us. She spends more time alongside us during the day and likes to snooze on the sofa in the evenings .She goes in the garden to toilet , eats well and sleeps all night in her crate which is her still her safe place at the moment. She will accept a gentle fuss from me but is still unsure of human intentions .Halo will need kind dogs for support and an adopter with time and patience to make her feel safe  

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.
