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.

30-10-2022 Sonnie arrived here with a very matted coat which we had to shave to make her more comfortable.  This revealed some sore patches of skin where the worst matts were but these should heal nicely now she has been shaved. Sonnie needs adopters who will ensure she is brushed every day and taken to the groomers regularly to ensure she remains matt free in the future.   She is a little shy and nervous at the moment and a bit overwhelmed to find herself here but in a calm, adult only home with adopters understand her worries she should soon start to feel a bit more confident and become a little braver every day.  Sonnie will need at least one other dog to help her learn about house training and lead walking.  She will watch them and then start to copy what they do.  With adopters who understand Sonnie will need a little time to get used to living in a home and who will give her all the help she needs to become a happy and much loved girl they will see Sonnie transform into a happy little sunbeam.  She has a passport.

23-11-2022 UPDATE
Sonnie has been in foster with me for a few days. What a little superstar she is!! Initially very shy, in just 3 days Sonnie has gone from not even coming into the same room, to sitting on the sofa near me!! Wow!! She absolutely loves playing and races about with our resident doggie. She is not totally sure about being stroked yet but she will take treats from my hand and play tug of war with toys with me. Her progress has been quite astonishing so far and I expect it will rapidly continue. She is a clever little thing too and toilet training is coming on nicely. She is such a happy little soul, always wagging her tail and clearly now loving life!! I am so happy for her as she came into the rescue in a very poor state.  

02-12-22 UPDATE

Sonnie has been in foster now for 12 days and continues to gain in confidence. She is now ok in a harness which is great, and lead walking is still a work in progress in the garden with a huge amount of sausages! Toilet training is coming on with just the occasional accident.
Sonnie absolutely loves playing with our resident cockapoo and will need a playful mate in her hew home. I can now stroke her easily and she clearly enjoys the attention. She sleeps well in her bed upstairs with us.
Sonnie is however easily worried by anything out of the ordinary and will to run to her safe place. Her adopter will need to be experienced with rescue dogs and be prepared to put a lot of time and effort into gaining her trust and teaching her the basics. She is a really lovely little girl and with time, patience and love, she will blossom into the most amazing companion.  

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.
