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.

30-09-23 Carter has come to us from a breeder to find his forever home. He is a very nervous boy who is worried to find himself here at the moment and very unsure of us humans. Once you've spent a little time with him he will cautiously approach you, but will quickly back away if you move at all. Carter will be looking for a calm and quiet, adult only home with adopters who have experience with scared dogs. He will need at least one other kind and confident dog in his new home to be his friend and take him under their wing and would like this to be a large female. When he has a friend to follow, he does walk on a lead but he will need more practice with this to feel confident. He has never lived in a home before so his adopters will need to be understanding as he settles in and learns all about home life and house training.  He is a wonderful boy and with time, love and care he will start to blossom and leave his past behind him. He will need a home without cats or small furries. He has PETS travel document.

18-10-23 UPDATE

Carter has come a long way since he arrived, but still needs a confident (large, female) resident dog. He cannot go home with cats. He now walks confidently on the lead, and will come up for fusses off me.
We have a good bond and it has taken a week or so to get to that point, so he needs someone who will take it slow and won't expect miracles. He is still quite flinchy with me but once he settles into a fuss he does start to enjoy it.
Carter does not like to share his food with other dogs, and needs to be fed in a separate room, but he is fine with me taking his bowl when it's empty. He is extremely food orientated and gets grumpy at other dogs if you are giving out treats too.
He really is a precious, absolutely stunning boy and whoever takes him on is extremely lucky!

Carter is an incredible distinguished gentleman. An amazing guy with love to give! Carter was extremely nervous upon arrival and it’s taken a little of time to coax him out of his shell but now Carter allows you to give him fuss and attention with a little patience and calm and underneath the nerves he is an incredible soul with so much to give. You can see just from meeting Carter he is special young man and he deserves the world. He has developed some sore patches which are vets will be monitoring.
23-12-23 UPDATE
Carter has come a super long way since he first arrived. I've looked after him consistently since his first week here, and the difference is crazy!
Carter loves a bum scratch, is food OBSESSED, and loves playing with his doggy friends! He will need a large female resident dog in his new home to show him the ropes and for him to have some canine comfort. He walks beautiful on lead and will only pull if he sees a cat he wants to chase, (cannot live with cats!)
Initially Carter was terrified of being brushed but with consistent brushing he has now started to feel the benefits and allows me to brush him; we are still working on brushing his tail, but he is okay with the rest of his body now!
He's really a gorgeous boy who absolutely should not have been waiting this long for his home. Once he's in a quieter environment I can imagine he will be so loving and confident; he just needs someone to take that leap with him! Initially he is very concerned about strangers but it doesn't take long for him to get comfortable with you.
16-01-24 UPDATE

Yesterday Carter had a much needed groom and bath and he was an absolute angel and just stood there for it, no freaks or hesitance at all! He now looks like a spectacular model man. A changed boy! Carter is such a loving & affectionate boy, once he trusts you. It does take a while to get to this point but once you do, it really is something special! Carter can still be spooky with new people/strangers, so any potential adopters need to be prepared for him to revert back to a fearful boy when he first gets home. But with time, love and patience you will have the best poodle companion ever!  
01-02-24 UPDATE

I met Carter today for the first time to see how he is with a new person. He approached me slowly and hesitantly but was very welcoming. When your down to his level he’ll put his nose to your hand and is very interested. Since his last update, his behaviour remains the same. He needs a home with a larger female resident dog because he takes a lot of comfort from his female kennel mate. He’s been in kennels since September and it’s sad to say he might not make any further progress here, he needs to be in a loving home where he can be shown how to be a pet. Any family would be so lucky to have this beautiful boy in their home, he is gentle, intriguing and deserves a lot of love!  

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.
