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.

13-03-23 Fame originally came to us from a breeder to find his forever home. He was adopted but started guarding items from his female owner which ended in him snapping at her. He is quite intimidated by men and is much less comfortable with males than females. We are introducing him to some lovely male staff to get him used to them. We will be looking for an experienced and active home with someone who can keep him both physically and mentally stimulated as he is full of energy. He can not live with children or be around visiting children. He can aleady walk on a lead but is quite strong and so we use a halti. He is a happy and confident boy who just loves fuss and attention on his terms! Fame could live as an only dog in the right home and would probably be less stressed this way.  His adopters will need to be kind and understanding as he settles in and learns all about home life and house training. He needs good boundaries, consistent and kind training to get the very best of this busy, confused boy.  He is a wonderful boy who sadly struggles in a kennel environment and in the right home with the right training he will be a faithful friend! Fame has a passport.

Fame is a cracking young boy, who is doing well considering he’s back In kennels, although does stress out in the sandschool when his humans leave him. Fame enjoys playing with his kennel mates, and enjoys human fuss and company. Fame needs an active home with no young children. Fame enjoys his food and in his new home, will need all the care and attention to show him he doesn’t need to be weary of new people.

Fame is such a lovely boy, he absolutely loves long walks. He is very strong so you have to be careful when taking him out. He walks quite well with a halti at the moment. He is currently kenneled with a GSD and they get on absolutely brilliantly, so a home with another dog would be amazing for Fame as he absolutely loves to play. Once he has settled down, he can be quite quiet and just enjoys your company. As you can see he is a very big boy, so he will need someone who is quite physically strong, to be able to handle him as he can be a lot to take on. Other than that he's an absolute softy, and after a bit of training he will learn about his own strength and understand that he doesn't need to use all of it.
Like I said he loves the company, when you leave him he does get upset and begins to get restless, but after a while he does calm down. If you are considering Fame for adoption, he will make any home a better one and will make an excellent addition to the family, all he needs is time and love and he will settle into his new  home brilliantly, and blossom into the dog he should of always been.

Gorgeous man Fame (aka Syd) is really struggling here in kennels. He once knew home life and so is becoming increasingly frustrated sat in a kennel, and he does not present himself well. Once he knows and trusts you, he is the most loving, loyal angel! But he is too strong to walk with most of our volunteers and when us staff have full sections it's hard to give Fame all the stimulation he really needs. I really think after a few months of settling into a new home and given the correct training and consistency, he will be a star! But he needs that special someone who will stick by him and not give up. He likes other dogs of similar size and plays big dog style! But he struggles to settle when other dogs are around and I believe he'd be best as an only dog, for this reason and for training consistency. He'd love a home where he is on the go, busy, and has lots of walks; physical and sniffaris, and brain games throughout the day. Fame cannot live with cats. I really hope someone comes along soon so that he can break free.

Fame is a gorgeous pointer who has lived in a home before. He is 90% toilet clean in his kennel. He loves to play with similar sized dogs but would prefer to go home as an only dog. Fame has had some issues with getting overwhelmed and not knowing what to do with his feelings in certain situations. He needs experienced people who will absolutely not give up on him. Once he knows and trusts you he really is such a softy, but getting to that point does take some time. He needs someone who is extremely confident in reading dogs, knows how dog brains tick by, someone who can assess and address why certain behaviours come up, rather than just trying to suppress them. Fame is super strong on the lead and so needs someone who can handle his strength. He really has no idea how strong he is! He also can jump up if he's really excited, though we are making huge progress with this here. This week I've discovered that Fame is very scared of loud bangs, drills, and those kind of noises. His fear completely takes over and he tries his absolute best to get away from the noise. This is something to be extremely mindful of in the future, where any walks might take place and considering how he may respond to the likes of fireworks and things like that. If you feel you can devote yourself completely to Fame then please have a look through his page in detail, and maybe even fill in an application form? He is really struggling here in kennels and every day he breaks my heart a little bit more while he waits for his home to appear

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.
