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.

08-02-23 Prize has come to us from a breeder to find his forever home. He is a very worried boy at the moment and will run and hide in his bed when you approach him. If you sit quietly at his level then he does get quite curious and will gently approach you for a sniff and will roll over onto his back. Prize really enjoys the company of other dogs and will need at least one other kind resident dog in his new home. Being a Collie, he will be looking for an active home with someone who can keep him both mentally and physically stimulated. At the moment he doesn't walk on a lead, but with gentle encouragement we will start to teach him all about walking on a harness and hopefully he will soon enjoy going for nice long walks. He would benefit from a calm and quiet home with someone who has experience with worried ex-breeding dogs. Prize has never lived in a home before and so his adopters will need to be kind and understanding as he settles in and learns new skills like house training. He has so much potential and in the right home he is going to blossom into the most magnificent boy. Prize has a passport.

Prize is making good progress here at the rescue, and in a week has gone from a shy, worried boy hiding in the back of his kennel, to one who now walks nicely on a lead and is happy to be out with me. He is an affectionate boy who is easy to handle and has the biggest smile when he is happy.
Our walk turned into an adventure, as two sheep had escaped from a field. Two farmers, a collie and a noisy tractor were trying to round them up and it wasn't an easy task. Prize was fascinated by all this and not at all nervous. He sat closely by my side and watched events unfold. when we returned to the rescue, I sat outside with him. Even in that short 45 minutes, I could see him gaining confidence, going from being unsure of passers by to cautiously wanting to meet them and then wagging his tail and saying hello to everyone, staff and visitors. He is good with other dogs and fantastic company. I am looking forward to taking him out with me again.
I think Prize is used to being outside as he was fine around cars, horses passing by and wayward sheep! However, when I opened a can of drink, the noise startled him. Introduction to home noises will have to be gradual and he will slowly get used to them.
Prize is a lovely collie and whoever adopts him will be very lucky.

He will be a lovely companion to any family, he will always look for snuggles when you are near so you’re in for a treat. Prize has been here quite a long time now and is a star, so please if you can, make your home prize’s forever home, he truly deserves!

I’ve only had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful boy for the past few days, but he has definitely stolen my heart. He is so affectionate and cuddly but also so gentle. He loves to roll over for a belly rub and will politely ask me to keep going when I stop. His confidence has improved so much that he would now be okay going home as an only dog, just as long as his new adopters would be around most of the time. It may take him a little while to settle, so he’ll need some gentle guidance and reassurance to get him there. He is an absolute STAR and honestly, I can’t believe he’s still here. I really hope he doesn’t have to wait much longer because he is going to make someone incredibly happy. Please consider him!


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.
