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.

07-10-23 Chelsea has unfortunately been returned to us after a very brief adoption as she wasn't settling with the resident dog. Prior to this she has come to us from a breeder to find her forever home. When she first arrived she was very worried about our intentions but now although timid at times she is a very sweet girl but very worried about us. Although she is frightened Chelsea has made so much progress since arriving with us and we think in the right home she is truly going to thrive! She will need a larger calm and confident female resident dog in her new home to be her friend but who won't be bossed around by her. She would prefer a home without any cats. Chelsea was doing well with house training but will need kind and understanding adopters that can continue her training all about house training and how to walk on a lead. She really is so very sweet and whoever adopts her is going to adore her.

Chelsea has come a long way since she initially arrived at Many Tears. She is still extremely nervous of touch but she now walks on a harness (and slip lead for safety) quite confidently with the right guidance. She can have funny little tendencies with other dogs when in situations where she feels unsure or scared, but I think given a few days to learn a routine and become familiar in the home then this will calm down and she would settle nicely.  She just needs to be given the grace of those first few days that are truly terrifying for these worried souls.
Chelsea has the most gorgeous eyes in the world and loves nothing more than sniffing around in the yard with her friends. Things like double leading and safety gates will be priority for Chelsea initially as she does actively try to look for a way out of situations she is scared in. I think given the right guidance, love and patience, Chelsea will turn into an awesome addition to your home!

I worked with sweet chelsea when she first arrived. During this time she progressed really well with being around people and became more comfortable being handled. She’s not the most confident of dogs, but will approach most people and sniff their hands. If she knows you, she will approach and accept fusses but still prefers the company of other dogs. On that note, she will need to be homed with another dog and would need this dog to be a calm female and preferably bigger than her as she can be a little bossy, especially with food. Since being here, Chelsea has learnt how to walk on a harness and now does this with ease, but can still be a little wary in new surroundings. This little sweetheart will accept food from your hands and I find that she warms to people faster when they’ve given her treats/her dinner. It’s heartbreaking to see this little one still waiting for her forever home, she’s truly a wonderful little dog and would make a great addition to the right household.

Chelsea is a girl to break your heart. She hasn’t had the best start to life and we’re all just waiting for her happy ending to begin. She arrived to us quite skinny, with some bald patches and sore skin in places. Now, she has blossomed into the most beautiful girl with a head full of curls. Chelsea continues to come out of her shell with people she’s familiar with and trusts, it’s clear she does have insecurities and we can’t blame her, she’s never had anything consistent in her life or anything that is hers. You can see that she has gotten into her routine here at the rescue which has made her more relaxed and she’s even walking on a lead. Chelsea just really needs a family that won’t give up on her and help her with her struggles. She’s met lots of different dogs now she’s becoming a long stayer here, she seems to really love female beagles especially. Her tail doesn’t stop wagging around her doggie pals so she definitely needs this support in her new home. I really hope she’s not waiting too much longer, she deserves so much more than being stuck in kennels.

I met Chelsea for the first time today. What a sweet girl she is. She is still slightly nervous of us humans, but you can approach her slowly and give her a gentle fuss. Chelsea walks well on the lead and is learning harness training and doing well. As you can see from her previous updates, she has come along really well, considering what she’s been through. Chelsea would thrive with routine and consistency. Another resident dog would be needed to help her adapt back into home life and help her confidence with humans. She’s good with her kennel friends and shares a bed with them fine. She deserves all the love and attention she can get. I hope she’s not here for too much longer, and can find her forever 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.
