25-08-2023 Quizzy is a stunning but scared little girl who has come to us from a breeder to find her forever home. She has needed to have several teeth removed by the vet. She is overwhelmed to find herself here at the moment and is feeling quite unsure around us. When we approach her in the kennel she does run away but is easy to handle once in our arms. Quizzy shows some of her sweet personality when she is around her kennel friends and will snuggle up with them in bed and follow them around the play yard but she is unsure of her surroundings as this is all a big change for her. Quizzy is looking for kind calm adopters that have experience in bringing on scared ex-breeding dogs that can help her come out of her shell in a loving environment. Quizzy will need an adult only home as children and even visiting children will be too overwhelming for her. Quizzy will need at least one confident resident dog in her new home that is happy to have her snuggle up next to them and that she can gain comfort and confidence from in her new home. She will need kind understanding adopters that can help her learn new skills such as housetraining and walking on a lead/harness when she is ready, this may take some time and Quizzy will need adopters that understand this. Quizzy will need time and positivity in her new home to help her settle and bond with her adopters, this will be a big change for her. Quizzy is such a dear little girl who just needs that experienced someone to choose her and show her how lovely a home can be. Quizzy has hormonal alopecia which should resolve in time after she has been neutered. Quizzy has a Grade 1-2 Heart Murmur that does not require any medication currently but will need to be monitored by adopters vets.

Quizzy is still unsure of humans but absolutely LOVES her daily playdates with other kennels.
She gets on with every dog she meets here, and is a very happy lady in herself, she just needs to learn that humans are good too.  She did very well on her harness today. She did have a few moments where she had a little panic about things, but soon calmed down and even asked for a little fuss.
Quizzy is great with other dogs and really does want to be brave enough to ask for loves, it'll just take time. I'm very proud of her for how far she's come so far.

Quizzy has come on leaps and bounds over the time she has been here at the rescue, she is still a nervous girl but has made a vast improvement. Today we went for a little walk and as you can see from the video she is doing well. The more time you spend with her the more she begins to trust you. I haven't worked with her much but today she let me smooth her for the first time which was a big deal. She will need a calm environment to settle into and have someone who has the time and willingness to work with her. Quizzy has had a hard life but is one very sweet girl she just needs someone to take a chance on her, giving her all the love she has missed out on so far.

Quizzy has been in foster for a couple of weeks and she is trying very hard to be brave . She has been clean in the home , cuddles her pals at night time and sleeps in the kitchen . She can be left for a few hours with her pals and she has enjoyed a few trips to the secure fields. It’s been the highlight for her !!! Quizzy is a sweet , gentle , kind little soul who does not have a bad bone in her body . She responds to kind words and gentle hands.

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.
