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.

02-11-2022 Drummer is an extremely scared girl who has come to us from a breeder.  She is exceptionally frightened of men and will scrabble up the side of her kennel if she sees them.  She is better with women but still extremely frightened about being approached by them.  She has come to us from a breeder has never seen anything of the world before or known that hands can be kind and gentle and hearts loving.  Drummer hates anything being put around her neck so we are going to start with her slowly to try and get her used to a collar.  She is going to need a really special, experienced and quiet adult only home who have had scared dogs like her before and understand how to work with her to overcome her fears. 
Until she settles into her new home Drummer is a potential flight risk so the garden and house must be very secure and there must be at least one other confident dog to help her and who will allow her to cuddle up with them for comfort and support if she wants to. 
Drummer has never been in a home so this is going to be completely overwhelming for her at first and she will need owners with endless time and patience to help her learn about house training etc.  At first the garden may be as scary and the inside of the home so getting in the garden and then back in the home could take time.  Drummer has no idea about lead walking and this is something else her new owners will need to work on once they have gained her trust.  They will need to start practising in the garden and then progress outside in quiet areas and the importance of double leading Drummer cannot be stressed enough.  In time and with owners who really understand her needs Drummer will slowly start to flourish and her adopters will be rewarded by seeing her become a happy beagle girl.  Drummer has a passport.

17-11-22 UPDATE
So it’s been a little while since Drummer got moved to my section and I’m so happy to say she’s a different dog to the one I first met. Her confidence is improving daily and I can tell she’s really starting to trust me. Human touch is still a scary concept for her so she is very flinchy, but she is definitely getting better.
Drummer’s such a young girl and she has so much potential to become the most wonderful companion, but her new owners will need to take things very slow with her and be completely patient and understanding of her worries and fears. She is very food orientated and will take treats from hands, so this is definitely the best way to go with her. She is also very playful with her kennel friend which is absolutely lovely to see, and she gets a lot of her confidence from him. Because of this, I would love to find her a home with a resident dog who will play with her, but also snuggle with her once play time is over because she loves that too! She will be totally reliant on the resident dog, so they must be patient and very kind to her. She will definitely be lost and overwhelmed when she first arrives at her new home, so it’s best that her new owners have no expectations and just take things day by day with her. Everything will be completely brand new for her as she’s never been in a home before, so time and reassurance will be her best friends. It will be a project taking on a dog like Drummer and it will be a long road until she is able to fully trust, but please believe me when I say it will be SO worth it.  

29-12-22 UPDATE
Drummer continues to make a good amount of progress each day and she is now such a happy girl who loves life. Her tail is constantly wagging and she’s finally turned a proper young Beagle. She is still very flinchy when it comes to human touch, but she’s getting better and better with a lot of practice. She will happily jump up on me and give me kisses all over, but she will still run away if she thinks I’m going to touch her or pick her up. She will allow me to pick her up and handle her if I get her in a corner, but she doesn’t like it. However, considering how bad she was at being touched and handled when she first came in, it’s an incredible difference.
As I mentioned in my last update, Drummer will be overwhelmed when she gets into her new home and she probably will regress, but I can’t express enough how important it is to give her a chance and not give up on her. I am positive she will get there with humans eventually, it’s just going to take a bit of time. She really just needs a home with people who will show her nothing but love, kindness and patience. 


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.
