12-05-2023 Shimmy is a timid girl who has come to us from a breeder.  She is not familiar being around people so needs more socialising to get used to people.  She has no idea that hands can be kind and loving but has a lovely nature and accepts a gentle fuss if you go slowly with her.  Shimmy has some sore patches on her skin which should start to heal now she is here. 
Simmy need to needs a calm adult only home where she can get the TLC she needs and there must be at least one kind dog who will allow her to cuddle up to them for support and comfort if she wants to.  She has never been in a home so this is going to be completely overwhelming at first and she will need owners with endless time and patience to help her learn about house training etc.  At first the garden may be as scary and the inside of the home so getting in the garden and then back in the home could take time.  Shimmy has no idea about lead walking and this is something her new owners will need to work on once they have gained her trust.  They will need to start practising in the garden and then progress outside in quiet areas. In time and with owners who really understand her needs Shimmy will slowly start to flourish and become the happy girl she should have always been.

Shimmy has slowly been learning that lots of humans are gentle and ready to love her. As timid as she is, once settled in a space she feels relaxed and free to move around in, she's quite fond of a gentle fuss. A gentle and peaceful approach is the key element to building her trust (asides from yummy treats of course). She loves the company of other dogs, and a furry friend to hold her paw and teach her the ropes of living in a home would be ideal. Moving to new spaces is a scary experience, and for this pup, a loving, dedicated home who can offer the time she deserves to teach her that new can be good, would be great! Shimmy is a sweet, gentle and quiet soul, and she's waiting for her forever family to come along and welcome her to their little corner of the world filled with love.  

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.
