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.

16-06-23 London is a sweet but shy girl who has come from her breeder to find a loving home. LOndon could be rehomed with her friend FOLLOW but if not she will need another resident dog in the home. She is feeling rather overwhelmed at the moment and will shy away from us and hide away in the back of her kennel. London needs some TLC and the chance to be with other dogs as she is at her most relaxed when she is around other canines. She will need to learn all about home life and pick up new skills such as house training and how to walk on a lead. She is a sweet girl who needs a calm and quiet home, a gentle approach and lots of time and patience to help her out of her shell and step forwards into a new chapter of her life. In time she will shine.

Bath day for London! I must say she did very well and was very patient with us. She is still a nervous girl who is going to need a calm home and a resident dog to help her along with her confidence. She will come up for a treat if she knows and trusts you so she will need some one who has the time to work with her and is understanding with no expectations of her.

Our girl London is a really special girl, who will need a friend to help her navigate life outside of the kennels, so a resident dog will be essential.
Prior to coming here she has had no reason to trust humans. She is getting braver however, and once you sit down with her and give her some time, she will let you stroke her and welcomes a loving fuss.
London will need time and patience, as she has not yet experienced a loving home - but she really is one of the dogs here who so desperately needs a home, to be able to develop into the next phase of her life which is being a very well loved & adored domestic dog. 

If anyone deserves a shot at a good life, it’s this girl right here.

So as you can see this is London. London is still struggling with kennel life, however…as soon as you enter her kennel she shows more nerves and backs away from you, if you go slow she will allow you to gather her up and once in your arms she’s allot more calmer. Finding a home to live in will bring her on leaps and bounds. London is still learning how to be confident in a harness, walking is a big step for her…with another friend she will walk a little but is still super scared and freezes up when doing these new things. London will need at least 1 friend in her new forever home. London is very scared when doing new things, but doing them regularly and routinely will definitely improve her confidence. Today we went for a groom, and she was allot more calmer this time around and after her bath today we pushed the boundaries further and got dressed up for a seasoned photo shoot! At this times household with no children under the ages of 12 would benefit her most. If you come from a nervous dog/rescue background and are happy to manage her environment in her new home. London is currently at many tears animal rescue.

London or Lindy as I call her, has been in foster with me for just a week. She has made huge progress in that short time and has proved how ex-breeding dogs just need a chance. Barking, which had been constant in the kennel setting, is a non-issue. She copes well when I go out for a couple of hours and is quite calm on my return, and just watches Mollie, my resident dog, make a big fuss. She seems very content to be in a home and to have a gentle companion to guide her. Mollie and Lindy often share a bed and after a first unsettled night, they sleep peacefully in my bedroom. Although Lindy is wary and does not freely give cuddles, she is a very intelligent, inquisitive girl who watches everything I do. She let me bath and trim her without any fuss so despite her anxiety, she really is an easy-to-handle dog. Her toilet training is going swimmingly well as she seems to understand that she should go outside. There’s just been one or two accidents when access to the garden was not available to her. Unsure as yet how well she travels in the car as she was sick on the second day after 10 mins but perhaps it was just too soon for her. Walking on a harness and lead has shown the most progress. Until yesterday she was refusing to walk at all, freezing and lying down. This all changed when she was introduced to 2 more dogs and happily walked around a friend’s garden on a lead as part of a pack of 4. Today, to my delight, she walked with just Mollie in the countryside. So glad to have Lindy as my first foster!

London (or Lindy as she is known in foster) is doing so well after just 2 weeks. Her harness training which at first proved difficult, is improving. Provided I put it on slowly and talk gently to her, she no longer resists. She loves her walks and seems to have lost her initial fear of traffic. Toilet training continues. She just needs lots of opportunities to go outside. Provided I lift the dog flap, she will go in and out through it, which is a big deal in so short a time. Lindy shows no fear of the sound of the vacuum cleaner or the lawn mower. Her confidence continues to grow and although she is hesitant to approach me when called, she will do so most of the time. What strikes me is how bright and engaged she is - a strong, lively personality is beginning to surface. Lindy was joined on Sunday by my new foster, a former kennel mate, and it was a joy to see how happy and excited she was to be reunited.  
22-11-23 UPDATE
Lindy (London) has come a long way in a few weeks. She is enthusiastic about her walks, is now clean in the home, sleeps peacefully all night, is friendly to other dogs and has no obvious fears of people or children when out although she is not used to living with children.  Her most striking quality is her intelligence and inquisitive nature.  She is quick to learn and takes corrections well.  Lindy is very engaged and communicates with me constantly, telling me what she wants.  She is very loving to my other foster dog and hides a big heart behind a defensive exterior. She is now ready for her forever home, to share with another dog she can befriend and cuddle up to.
18-12-23 UPDATE
Lindy (London) is ready to be part of a family as she's clean in her foster home, loves her walks and sleeps like a baby. She is full of character and is quite mischievous.  Even so, she needs a doggie friend for confidence and company. It’s been agreed that if she is adopted with Follow, her foster friend, a resident dog wouldn’t be essential as they get a lot of confidence from each other.  London is so special and has been waiting a long time for her own loving home.

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.
