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.

24-05-2023 Sweet Petra has been returned to us after a short adoption because the resident dog did not get on with her and she was not settling. She has had some ongoing issues with her anal glands but has seen the vet and is doing great on a fish based diet.
Petra has settled back here in foster quickly,she gets on well with both my dogs (male and female) She is fine with people when approached quietly, is house trained, sleeps all night in her bed, loves her food,lets me groom her and travels well in the car. Petra originally came to the rescue form a breeder and was quite a nervous girl who was not used to being handled. Since then she has learnt to trust people and build relationships with them through lots of positive reinforcement. She has learned to walk on a lead/harness in quiet areas,but does get nervous when she meets other dogs, especially if the are barking or boisterous. When my dogs greet quiet dogs she has started approaching them so we are working on this. She will need a adult only home with a calm quiet dog /dogs who will let her cuddle up.  Petra is a really sweet loving girl with a happy waggy tail, she loves a cuddle and will make a wonderful friend. She really does deserve a lovely home as she is such a little darling.  


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.
