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.

12-02-24 Hannah has come to us from a breeder to find her forever home and initially arrived with us in July. She was absolutely terrified of everything and everyone. She did everything she could to try and get us humans to leave her alone.
Over the 8 months that she's been here she has made huge progress, and although it may not seem much as she is still a very scared girl, the strides she has made are huge. Hannah now walks on lead, and likes to sniff her surroundings, providing everything is quiet and there's no distractions. She also will allow us to approach and handle her with little to no fuss.
In the past month or so, Hannah has started to play with toys, and even play with me in the yard! This is absolutely massive as it shows how she is relaxing. Her personality is just starting to peek through, and I think she has progressed all she can in such a busy environment.
Hannah has also gained 2.2kg since arriving. In kennels, such a stressful environment for these dogs, this is amazing weight gain!
Although Hannah has made huge progress, she is still a very scared and very flighty girl. She will actively avoid you, constantly seek reassurance in her kennel friend, and sometimes can regress if she has had a particularly stressful event happen, eg. a vet trip.
Considering this, any potential adopters must be prepared for Hannah to regress in the first few weeks of taking her home. She will be best to be left alone initially, to work things out with the help of the resident dog. She will need lots of love in the form of patience, to reassure her that she is safe.
Hannah is a really special girl, and when I see her playful relaxed side come out I really see the potential she has. I think she'll make an amazing addition to the right home, and whoever gets to witness her blossom will be so lucky.
Hannah's adopters would need to seriously consider all safety aspects, like double leading, ensuring Hannah is safely behind a barrier/second door before opening the front door in the house.
Hannah needs a calm and quiet, adult only, cat free home, with a secure garden, with a confident and playful resident male dog, her size or larger. Experience with scared ex-breeding dogs would also be ideal.

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.
