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.

05-05-23 Westonia is a very worried girl who has come from her breeder to find a loving home. She has never seen beyond her breeders before and the big wide world must seem a very scary place to her and she is very overwhelmed at the moment. She will hide away in the back of our kennel and hope that we wont approach her. If we do go towards her she will panic and is very afraid of being touched. Westonia is going to need an experienced home who can look past her fears and see the potential she has deep inside her. She needs support, kindness, TLC and lots of love. She will also need at least one kind resident dog in her new home to be her friend and help her settle and boost her confidence. Wonderia is going to be a project but can you imagine how amazing you will feel as she sheds her fears and begins to trust? Wonderia has no idea how good her life can be but in the right calm, adult home she will begin to shine. 

06-06-23 UPDATE

Westonia has been on my section since she arrived here and what a precious girl she is. Even though she is still very nervous, I can tell she’s trying really hard to be brave, but she’s not there just quite yet. Putting her fear of humans aside, she is generally quite a happy girl. She absolutely loves food, toys and running around in the big play yard and she’s really no bother to look after at all. Her biggest worry is human touch and I think it’s going to take a good while until she’s okay with it, but that’s fine with me, I’ll give her all the time she needs.
When I need to pick her up, I get her to go in the back of her kennel and I sit with her for a couple of minutes before I do anything. I’ve found if you don’t take your time with her and go straight to pick her up before calming her down, she’s a lot worse and will snap out of fear. However, she is fine when you’re slow and calm with her.
Westonia loves her kennel friends and is very playful with them when she’s in the mood, so I think homing her with a kind but playful resident dog would be ideal for her. Her new home will still need to be an adult only one with experience. She definitely is a little project dog, but I’ve got a feeling she’s going to be the most amazing girl once she’s settled and is brave enough to come out of her shell. I think she’ll progress a lot faster in a home environment as it will be so much quieter and relaxed for her, so I really hope she doesn’t have to wait much longer!  

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.
