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.

21-11-2022 Aloha has come to us from a breeder and we are looking for a home who have experience with huskies or similar breeds.  She is an extremely nervous girl who doesn't approach us and is very worried about being touched and handled.   She will need an adult only and very experienced home who have had scared dogs before and understand how to work with Aloha to overcome her fears.  Children would be too much and completely overwhelming for her so it must be a child free home.  If you go slowly with her, she will allow you to pick her up but she is very unsure and not used to hands being kind. 
Aloha will need a very secure garden and home 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. She has never been in a home so this is going to be completely overwhelming 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.  Aloha has no idea about lead walking and this is something 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 Aloha cannot be stressed enough.  In time and with adopters who really understand her needs Aloha will slowly start to flourish and become the happy husky girl she should have always been.

Aloha's personality is really starting to shine through now. She was and still is the most worried of all her siblings. She is still absolutely petrified of us humans, and really does everything she can to avoid human touch, but we are working with her on this, at her own pace.
Aloha's is a big foodie which is definitely a big help! She will eat out of our hands and approach if we have food but is nowhere near ready to start learning to walk on a lead yet, and when adopted she will need someone super calm and patient to get to this next step with her, though this may be a long way away really.
Aloha really needs a confident resident dog, that loves to play just as much as give comfort. She is a super super playful girl, she LOVES toys, especially hard chews. If she gets hold of just any toy she will destroy it and she may even swallow pieces, we only give her indestructible toys here. If she doesn't have toys she will seek entertainment in her kennel friends, and she likes to play rough! So the toys give her kennel friends a break from her crazy play! I'm sure with time and love Aloha will soon be seeking cuddles just like the rest of her siblings. But for now, she will observe others having cuddles, and enjoy her toys from a distance.

Aloha has come a very long way since arriving, she was one of the most scared huskies out of the 5, but she has now started her harness training and is okay, although very nervous with it. She definitely needs someone who is very safety conscious and will double lead her with correctly fitting harness and slip lead etc.
She is a very playful girl who loves her kennel friends, so she would like a playful resident dog who allows her to snuggle up when she wants a snooze. She shares her food with others and is learning to enjoy a fuss but you do have to go very slowly with her.
In the right home, Aloha will be amazing, she just needs someone to give her a chance.

Aloha is still making good progress here, although she is still quite worried of people, she is coming up for sniffs and to take treats. Aloha loves routine and her new owners could use this to help her settle in to her new home. She would benefit from starting as you mean to go on. Although she will need plenty of time before you even consider taking her on walks etc. We are harness training her here, going very short distances in a safe area, as she finds it very overwhelming at the moment. We'll continue to work with her and try to help her feel even more comfortable around people.

Aloha is looking so smart now we've got rid of most of her dead coat. She continues to gain in confidence and is going to make an amazing addition to the right family.

03-03-23 UPDATE

Aloha has come on so well, she is such a happy, playful girl with other dogs, she just needs people who understand her worries and keep her safe. She's going to be such an amazing girl once she's settled and trusts her new people.

My goodness, isn't this girl doing well, she now walks on a lead to the sand school and back, can get a bit scared if there's a "stranger" about but carries on. Aloha has her own little ways, she has to be in a certain place at the front of the kennel for me to put the lead on, and the same in the sand school, she likes to be in a certain place. Every time I put the lead on, and take it off I give her a head scratch, she's coming to like this (same as her brother did). She's still not too sure about being stroked but we're getting there. She is playful with other dogs, and she has a bit of mischief about her. We ventured out onto the road for the first time, I put a harness on her, just in case she freaked out, but she actually enjoyed the walk, having a good sniff and took no notice of passing cars and vans. She will take treats from me if her kennel friends are with her. She's a lively, active girl whose great personality is starting to shine through.

Aloha has come on leaps and bounds, she’ll now walk okay by herself to and from the sandschool on just a lead. I’ve only worked with her 2/3 times and she allows me to stroke her. Aloha will definitely need a resident dog as she finds comfort in them, and snuggles up with them, and also does play with them and wrestle when she thinks we aren’t looking! She will need a patient, calm and understanding home who will take everything at her pace.

15-05-23 UPDATE

I have seen Aloha many times and have taken her out to the play area, but not really spent time until today. She is still a little shy, but took a treat from me a few times before retreating away. When I approach her she moves away, but when I stay still she comes past to see you every time, and sniffs my hand to see if I have a treat. The more time you spend the more she trusts you, but she is still going to need another dog in her new home, along with a quieter home without young children, and people with patience as she develops. 

Unfortunately, she will also need a home without cats!

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.
