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.

22-12-2022 Retro has come to us from a breeder.  He has an undershot jaw which doesn't bother him and he manages to eat perfectly well. He also has dry eye and so needs lubricating eye drops to help him feel comfortable and he may always need these.  At the moment Retro is a little worried to find himself in new surroundings and needs a home with at least one other confident resident dog who will allow him to cuddle up with them for comfort and support if he wants to.
Retro has never been in a home so will need owners with time and patience to help him learn about house training etc.  Retro has no idea about lead walking but we will start to teach him once he has settled.  With adopters who really understand that what he needs is time and patience to progress at his own speed Retro will start to realise he is loved.

What a perfect little boy Retro is.  Now he has adjusted to his new surroundings and got to know us, he loves everyone and will jump up gently for a fuss.  Retro gets on well with other dogs and is the most amazing guy to look after. I would spend all day with him if I could.

Oh my beautiful, perfect, wonderful, amazing little Retro. You have stolen my heart completely!
Retro is an absolute dream to look after in kennels, he loves a fuss and will ever-so-gently jump up at you to have one. He loves nothing more than being on your lap and snuggling right in to you.  He wears two jumpers every day to keep him warm and he is a dream to put them on.
Retro gets on well with his female kennel friends and I think he would be okay with males but we haven't tried him yet. He isn't bothered about the cats that sit outside the play yard and although he's a beginner on a harness, I don't think it's going to take him long to be an absolute pro at it.
I can't fault him, genuinely, he is a small poodle with the biggest heart that's so full of love that he just desperately wants to share with his humans. He will need a kind resident dog in his new home, and he came in very skinny, but we are feeding him plenty to try and get the right amount of weight on him.
If you have a Retro size hole in your heart, then please do apply. He shouldn't be waiting in kennels any longer. I'm going to miss my lovely cuddles so much when he finds his forever people.

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.
