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.

29-09-2023 Horatio is a very special little lad who has arrived here underweight so we will be building him up gradually.  He is a confident boy who sits in his own little world watching everything that's going on around him.  Horatio is inquisitive and a well rounded boy.  We think he may have lived in a home at some time in his life as he know how to sit and is especially good at this for food!   Horatio gets on well with other dogs and could either share his home with others or be an only dog.  However he cannot live with cats.  Horatio knows how to walk on a lead but may need help with house training although it shouldn't take him long to pick this up if he needs to learn.  He has an undershot jaw, has had a few extractions and may need further extractions in the future, which wouldn't be covered by insurance. He has also had a few epuli (benign growths) removed from his mouth by our vet.  If you can offer him the special home this boy really deserves please put in an applications.  Horation has a PETS travel document.

28-12-23 UPDATE
Horatio has been with me a few months now and has his paws firmly under the table!! He’s had a lovely Christmas, been to the pub, winter wonderland, the beach and been spoiled with presents but would like best of all a home of his own.
He’s house trained, although if it’s raining needs persuasion to go outside he’d rather just hold it! Sleeps through the night, can be left for a few hours, travels well in the car and loves walks!! As soon as he sees you pick up his lead he’s bouncing. This energy level drops rapidly when actually on a walk and he would rather mooch along at a snails pace but he will happily do this for a few hours. He’s great with all dogs and completely non reactive to any anti social behaviour. He does like to say hello to people (no jumping involved) so will veer into the middle of a group of people walking towards you but generally everyone finds this adorable.
His main vice is food. He’s improved massively and we can now eat infront of him without fear of him stealing our plate and it’s entire contents in one swift ninja move however he does snatch treats, and he’s fast. For this reason alone he wouldn’t be suitable to live with small children, although he does love them and gravitates towards them on walks. You can take his bowl off him when eating etc, he’s not food aggressive he just has limited manners and lots of enthusiasm.
Don’t overlook this boy because of his age. He’s honestly a lovely lovely dog with loads of life left in him and seems very well bred with none of the usual bulldog problems.

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.
