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.

04-10-22 Nookie has come to us from a breeder to find her forever home. She is a very scared girl who is really worried to find herself here. She is looking for a calm and quiet, adult only home with an adopter who has experience with scared ex-breeding dogs. She will need at least one other kind and confident dog in her new home to be her friend and to help her settle in to her new life and build her confidence. Nookie has never lived in a home before so her adopters will need to be kind and patient as she settles in and learns about things like house training. Nookie has never walked on a lead before and will need to be introduced to a harness and lead slowly, first in the house and garden before she builds up enough confidence to try walking outside. With time and love, Nookie will start to let her guards down and begin to trust and it will be so worth it when you get to see her tail wag for the first time. Nookie has a Grade 4 heart murmur, she doesn't require any medication for this yet but it is something her adopters and their vet will need to monitor.

19-10-22 UPDATE

Nookie has made a lot of progress in the short amount of time she’s been with me and I just adore working with her. It’s been a pleasure to watch her come out of her shell and slowly learn to trust me. Of course she is still quite a nervous girl, but she’s so much better than what she was when she arrived .. I’m actually very proud of her. She gets super excited to see me every day now and wags her tail so fast, sometimes I think she’s going to take off (haha)! Today she also chose to sit really close to me whilst I was having my lunch in the play yard, and even allowed me to give her a little scratch under the ear. It’s only been about 3 weeks, but if she’s made this amount of progress so far, I can only imagine how much she’ll thrive in the right home.
She will still need a home with at least 1 kind and confident resident dog, and with people who have all the time and patience to work with her through her worries and fears. She’s going to need gentle guidance and reassurance, and owners who do not have expectations. She has never been in a home before, so she definitely will be overwhelmed at first, but they must help her and not give up on her. I can tell she is a very sweet and even comical girl under the layers of protection she has up, but in time I really do think she will blossom into a loving companion. She just needs to be given a chance.  

01-12-22 UPDATE
Since my last update, Nookie has made a good amount of progress with me and I am very proud of her. She’s a lot more comfortable around me now and has taken big steps by letting me fuss her and taking food and treats from my hands. This may not sound like a lot to some people, but for a dog like Nookie it’s actually huge. She’s getting more and more used to human hands now and I think she is slowly starting to realise that they’re not a bad thing. When I give her little scratches under her ears, even though she’s not entirely sure about it, she does wag her tail .. so she’s definitely trying her very hardest to be brave.
She still adores her kennel friends and does like to cuddle up in bed with them which is very sweet. She also loves the sandschool and spends ages doing lots of sniffs in it and finding new toys to investigate. She’s still not 100% sure on what to do with them yet, but if I throw a ball for her she will run after it to see what it is. I really don’t think Nookie had much in her life before coming to us, and my heart hurts for her. Watching her slowly come out of her shell has been an absolute joy, but I so hope that her forever home is around the corner. She deserves so much more than a life in kennels .. please somebody come and save her.

Nookie has settled well into foster. She is confident around the home and making good progress with her lead walking. Happy to accept a fuss and a cuddle if approached slowly. She mixes well with dogs of all sizes and is happy to snuggle with them. Loves her food, and is the first there when treats are on offer.
Nookie would love at least one friend in her new home. If you feel you could welcome her into your home please apply. 

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.
