18-02-23 Little Love is a worried girl. She has an overshot jaw but manages well.  She has come from her breeder to find a loving home and she clearly isnt used to being around people yet as she is feeling so overwhelmed and scared around us. She does not come to greet us but will hide away instead. She will allow us to pick her up but will wriggle and do her best to be free from you as she doesnt understand why we want to touch her. With a little time and perserverence she will relax in arms and hopefully start enjoying a gentle fuss in the future. Love is reliant on her kennel friends to feel safe and she will need a lovely little resident dog to be her friend in her new home and show her new skills like house training and how to walk on a lead. She needs a calmer home with someone prepared to take things slowly and guide her forwards. With some patience and time she will transform, find her personality and love her new way of life.

Poor little Love absolutely melts my heart and I wish more than anything that she’ll find her perfect forever home soon. She is so sad and shut down here and I think she’ll come on so much better in a calm home environment. The rescue is always very busy and loud, and it can be very overwhelming .. especially for dogs like Love. She spends her days cuddled up in bed with her friends, mostly in the back of the kennel, hoping I don’t come in and disturb her. She does enjoy going out in the big play yard with her friends, but she doesn’t really know what to do when she’s out there. She doesn’t know how to be a normal dog .. it’s so heartbreaking.
Love is going to need a very special home with people who will be completely understanding and patient with her. It will probably be quite a long time until she trusts us humans, if she ever does, but her adopters must love her regardless and not give up on her. She’ll still need at least 1 kind and confident resident dog in her new home to help her settle and teach her all about the perks of home living. She is very reliant on her doggy friends so it will be a huge comfort blanket for her.
I worry that she’s going to shut down completely if she stays here, so I really hope her forever home is just around the corner. She really needs it.  

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.
