01-11-2022 Poet is a little sweetheart who has come to us from a breeder.  She is a nervous girl who is very wary about humans but will allow her gently pick although she freezes once she is in your arms. Poet will need a calm adult only, home where there is at least one other dog who is as kind and gentle as her.  With their help she will start to settle into home life and she will watch them and then start to copy what they do which will help her with things like house training and lead walking. The garden may be as scary as the inside of a home at first and lead walking will take her time to learn.  This needs to start in the garden before venturing into the outside in quiet areas.  With adopters who understand what Poet needs is love and kindness, she will start to learn that the rest of her life will be wonderful and start to become much braver. 

28-11-22 UPDATE
Poet has been in foster a week with me for a weel and is stil very scared of humans.  She loves my dogs but runs away from me if I move towards her, however, Poet is fully housetrained and is really enjoying home comforts.  She gazes at TV and love running in and out of the garden. I will start putting a harness on her this week with the aim to get her out for a walk once I think she is comfortable on a lead.

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.
