20-11-22 Tempest is a lovely litle girl who has come to us from a breeder. She is a sweet natures girl who is easy to pick up and handled and although shy she responds well to having a fuss.  Tempest will need an an adult only, home where there is at least one other dog who is very kind and who will be happy to share their home with her.  Her new canine friend(s) will help her confidence with people and will watch them and start to copy what they do and which will help her learn new skills like house training and lead walking.  These may take her time to learn but with love, gentle words of encouragement and praise she will start to blossom and in time Tempest will love her new life.

28-11-22 UPDATE
Tempest has been in her foster home for a week now. Tempest is making progress she wears her harness but nolonger her line indoors or in the garden. Tempest moves freely around our home and garden going in and out of doors and following our other dogs. Although still hand shy, she likes treats if you put them on the ground/floor near her. Tempest loves her food has found her voice and is enthusiastic at mealtime, she gets vocally excited awaiting her food.
She does go outside to do her toilet with our  dogs although she still has the occasional accident. So much wet weather lately has been a hindrance to her toilet training.
I have several dogs here male and female of various sizes and ages ,Tempest is accepting of them all and they of her. Tempest is not a demanding dog and is submissive in behaviour. She will flourish in an adult home with at least one other canine friend. Tempest is not destructive or naughty, she is a gentle inquisitive soul feeling her way forward in a new world of love and freedom.


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.
