16-08-2023 Follow is a darling girl who has come to us from a breeder.  Follow could be rehomed with her friend LONDON but will need a resident dog if she isadopted alone.  She is a scared girl who hides in her bed when people approach as the move has been a huge adjustment for her.  Once in your arms she is easy to handle albeit very tense.  Follow relies heavily on her kennel friends and will need a home where there is at least one other dog who will allow her to cuddle up with them for comfort and support if she wants to and with their help she will start to realise there is nothing to fear.  Follow will watch what they do and then start to copy them which will help her with house training and lead walking etc. These are things which may take her a while to pick up as the garden may be a scary as the house at first so her adopters need to have plenty of patience and love to help her learn.  Follow will need to be double leaded and her adopters need be sure she is comfortable walking on a harness and lead in the garden before taking her for a walk in the outside world.

Follow needs to disover who she really is behind the fearful, shut down girl she’s become in kennels. She’s happy to roam her kennel with her friends who she gets along with well, and relies on for confidence, but she’s quick to shy away from human interaction. Once approached, she’ll allow you to gently handle her but she becomes very tense. I truly believe she would be the sweetest girl in the right loving gentle home who give her the patience she needs to earn her trust.

Follow is such a sweet little girl, she would love so much a home to call her own. Follow is very shy of us humans but try’s so hard to be brave and will let us pick her up when we need to and even comes up to us for a little sniff when we sit quietly with her. Follow is looking for a quiet home where there is already a resident dog as she loves the company of other dogs. If you think you could help this dear little girl please do put an app in for her

As you can see from the photos, Follow has discovered squeezy cheese, she loves it and became a lot braver with me. She came up to me and took the cheese but didn't want me to touch her. If you corner her you can easily pick her up, she's fine with this. She had her first trip out on a harness and learnt well, she went out with a friend and explored outside the rescue, she just needs more practice. Such a sweet little girl with a lovely mischievous character.

Follow has been seen by  our vet to be spayed and she need a dental at the same time which resulted in 15 teeth needing to be removed. Follow has recovered very well after her operation and appears much more comfortable and is eating food well.

06-11-23 UPDATE
Follow has been with me in foster for just a week but already there is a noticeable change in her behaviour. She is much more confident and relaxed, provided she has Lindy, my other foster dog to act as her minder.
She shows no stress when I go out for a few hours as she is content with the company of dogs. House training is continuing and she copies the other 2 dogs when in the garden but needs to have lots of opportunities to go out.
She enjoys her food and will even take a treat from my hand. For a nervous dog, Follow takes a lot of things in her stride and jumps in and out of the car and really enjoys walking, unconcerned for the most part by traffic. After a lovely walk on the weekend at gardens and a beach, she was positively happy and playful.
Follow has a mischievous side to her personality too and will run off with something in her mouth that she has found or stretched up to reach. What strikes me is how well she settles at night, sleeping in my bedroom with the other dogs. She has come a long way for an ex-breeding dog who was terrified of people when she arrived at the rescue centre. She deserves a loving home, with a friendly resident dog to keep her company who will show her the ropes and help her settle.

22-11-23 UPDATE
Follow is settling in nicely in her foster home.  She is a lot more relaxed and will often approach me and lick my fingers when called.  She enjoys her food, walks and exploring the garden and travels well in the car.   Follow likes other dogs and will approach them to make friends and shows no fear of children or men when out and about although she is not used to living with children.  Her house training is coming along and she sleeps through the night without waking or making a mess.  She does rely greatly on the other dogs in the home but is beginning to show an interest in what I am doing and where I am.  Every now and then signs of a happy, contented little dog can be glimpsed. She just needs love and patience to help her become that girl.

18-12-23 UPDATE 
Follow is gaining confidence daily and engages well with me now.  She's becoming more playful and will join in treat-finding games with foster friend, London.  It’s been agreed that if they are adopted together, a resident dog wouldn’t be essential as they get a lot of confidence from each other.  Follow has been waiting since August for someone to choose her and really deserves a home to call her own.

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.
