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.

15-12-2022 Conny has come to us from a breeder.  She is a very scared girl who doesn't approach us but is fine to handle once in your arms.   She will need an adult only home with adopters who understand how to help her overcome her fears.  Conny will need 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 adopters who have the time and patience she will need to help her learn about house training and  lead walking.  They will need to start practising lead walking in the garden and then progress outside in quiet areas.  In time and with owners who really understand her needs Conny will slowly start to flourish and become the happy girl she should have always been. She has a passport.

22-01-23 UPDATE
I’ve been working this this beautiful girl since she arrived and I’m slowly but surely seeing little improvements in her each day. She is still a nervous girl who hasn’t sussed me out just quite yet, but she’s definitely a lot more curious and a little more brave than she was. She will approach me to give me a little sniff when I’m sitting on the floor with her, but as soon as I go to touch her she will run away. On the first week or so, she would growl at me if I needed to corner her to pick her up, but she doesn’t do this anymore. It sounds small, but I celebrate every win with these broken angels. Conny’s favourite thing in life is food, so this is what I’ve been using to try and win her over. She won’t take treats from my hand yet, but I can tell she’s really close. She will eat them if I place them on the floor beside me though!
This poor girl may never be a normal, cuddly dog, but her new owners will just need to accept this and love her with all their hearts regardless. It’s going to take a lot of time and patience to get Conny to where she needs to be, but the rewards will make it all so worthwhile. With the help of a kind and confident resident dog, I do believe she will get there eventually. She really just needs to be shown a whole lot of love and gentle guidance, and I’m certain there’s someone out there who could give this to her. I just hope she doesn’t have to wait too long!


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.
