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.

13-09-23 Valory has come to us from a breeder to find her forever home. She is a very nervous girl who is very overwhelmed to find herself here at the moment and won't yet approach us. Once in your arms she does begin to relax and settle so we think with time, love and kindness she will soon start to come out of her shell. Valory will be looking for a calm and quiet home where there is at least one other kind and confident dog who will be her friend and companion. She has never lived in a home before and so her adopters will need to be kind and understanding as she settles in and learns all about home life and new skills like house traning and how to walk on a lead. We can tell that there is a sweet girl just waiting to emerge from her shell so please don't leave her waiting too long. Valory has a Grade 2 Heart Murmur which does not require any medication currently but will need to be monitored by adopters vets. Valory has seen our vets and they have determined she has Grade 1 bilateral luxating patellas which may improve with gradual muscle development, exercise and weight managment but will need to be monitored by adopters vets and most likely won't be covered by insurance.

Valory is such a sweet shy girl, who is still quite nervous around us. She gains her confidence being around her kennel mates and will approach your hand for a sniff, but is more unsure when on her own. She curls up in the bed so sweetly with her friends. A quiet home with a resident dog is a must for this little lady, so she can be shown that love, affection, some gentle fuss, and treats are everything she didn’t know she needed.
Once you see her, her eyes will melt your heart. With time and patience I know this sweetheart will make the most loving companion.

Today I gave Valory a nice warm bath and dry, as she had managed to get herself a little bit stinky! She really didn’t enjoy it and tried very hard to get out of the bath, but she still allowed me to finish.
I think the water was very scary for her which is completely understandable, and she was more than happy to get back to her friends. I do think she did enjoy having a towel dry though!!
Valory is definitely coming out of her shell more and more, I think being kennelled with playful dogs has helped her a lot. She now loves toys, especially really hard ones that she can chew, and her face always lights up when I put some in her kennel.
I would love to see her in a home soon, especially now that the weather is getting colder. Please don’t keep her waiting much longer.

Valory had a posh professional groom yesterday .. doesn’t she look a million pounds!?
I really can’t believe this sweet girl is still here. Even though she can still be timid of us humans, she’s made so much progress since she first arrived and she’s turned into probably the most playful dog on my section.
Her love for toys and wrestling with her kennel friends shines through so strong and she’s such a happy girl now.
It would be absolutely perfect if we could find her a home with a playful resident dog that will match her energy.
She really would be over the moon!

I met Valory for the first time today and what a little delight she is. Understandably she is timid of me (it is only the first time I’ve met her mind) but she was brave and did approach me for a few sniffs and her tail and body language was relaxed when she was in my presence.
Valory needs dogs around her to help her feel calm, gain confidence and approach people ~ she follows them around and really finds comfort from them, and we’d love for her to learn the ropes of a home from a kind resident dog.
Let’s hope 2024 is the year for this gorgeous little girly, her journey will be an incredible thing to be apart of and we hope that someone will scoop her up and allow her to begin her new life soon

This week I have had the opportunity to work with Valory, on the first meeting she was quite weary of me as you can imagine, but the more time I have spent with her the more she has come around. Today after sitting with her for a little while and giving some treats she let me put a harness on her! I had to go very slow but she was brave enough to let me do it. Considering she doesn't know me that well this is a big deal for her. I can't believe Valory has been here since September! She just needs a calm home where she can finally start to settle with people who have the time to work with her and some experience with rescue dogs. She is a wonderful girl with a great personality, she loves playing with other dogs as well so With a confident and playful resident dog guiding her through home life I'm sure she will blossom into such an amazing girl.

Valory is just the most delightful little lady, she has such a determined character and is trying so hard to trust us humans, and I see her getting braver all the time. I have to move very carefully around Valory and do things slowly at her pace, and through being patient I notice I am growing on her and I even get a little tail wag and excited woof when I arrive in the mornings. Valory is a big foodie and will often tap me on the arm for more treats when we sit in her kennel together. This lovely lady, is looking for an adult only home with a confident male dog companion, (she can be a bit bossy with other dogs), and humans that are happy to go along at her pace, and understand she will need lots of time to get used to home life.
In return her adopters will gain a cheeky and very cute four legged friend.

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.
