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.

21-12-2022 Rumba is a scared girl who hasn't experienced love from humans before arriving here and hides at the back of her kennel when she see people approaching her and will need an adult only and experienced home who understand how to work with Rumba 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. 
Rumba will at least one other confident but very kind a gentle dog or dogs to help her and they mustbe happy to let her 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.  Rumba 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 Kitty cannot be stressed enough.  In time and with owners who really understand her needs Rumba will slowly start to flourish and become the happy girl she should have always been.

27-01-23 UPDATE
What an amazing little dog Rumba is, in just one week this little girl is taking treats out of my hand, is house clean and yesterday walked round the fields on a lead.
I still have to approach her slowly as it will take time to gain her trust fully ,but she is going to make a lovely companion.
Rumba would be ok with visiting respectful children over ten years. She does love her doggie friends so must have a kind little dog in her new home.


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.
