18-11-23 Rhinestone is a beautiful girl who has come into the rescue to find her forever family. She has sore ears at the moment and has seen our vet and been started on treatment for this. She is matted so in need of a groom and will need regular breushing and trips to the groomer to avoid this again.
She is a very nervous girl and she is finding it all very overwhelming in the kennels. Rhinestone once she is in your arms is very gentle and sweet but she doesn't trust us humans yet so she will run and hide, with a lot of TLC and patience she will blossom into a happy girl. She will need to learn all about home life and it will take her some time to get used to the sights and sounds, she will need to learn about housetraining and how to walk on a lead or harness. This beautiful soul will need the help of a kind resident dog to give her the confidence she needs and to show her the ropes. Rhinestone will come out of her shell but she needs help and she needs time to get there. She has a PETS passport travel document

Rhinestone is a lovely, sweet dog, whose trust needs to be earned as she is still a bit unsure of humans. I met Rhinestone for the first time today to get an accurate first impression, and I was initially greeted with a few barks, but after I came down to her level and let her approach me in her own time and at her own pace, she was slowly approaching me for a little sniff. With humans aside, Rhinestone is brilliant with her kennel mates and is super playful! She will even enjoy a game of tug of war with her Cocker Spaniel friends. She typically gets along with most dogs, and will definitely need another resident dog at home to keep her company and help her navigate life outside of the kennels. Rhinestone is in the early stages of harness training and with some gentle encouragement and confidence, we think she can slowly build up to lead walking. A rescue is no place for a timid dog like Rhinestone, and her progress will skyrocket once she is in a safe space she can call a home.

Rhinestone is a timid but sweet girl and just needs the time and attention given to her in order for her to come out of her shell. Initially she does bark at you but spending some time with her she does settle and will slowly approach you just enough to have a sniff. Rhinestone loves to play with her furry friends and gets along with them great. She bed shares with no issues and enjoys having toys. Rhinestone also loves her food and eats well. I would suggest if any children to be 16+ who can understand her background and know not to push boundaries. She’s still in the process of learning to walk with a harness but step by step she will get there!! I would recommend having another resident dog that could ease Rhinestone into home life and show her the ropes. She’s got so much love to give.

Rhinestone has become such a happy little soul who loves running around in the yard and catching some rays in the sunny sunshine.
She loves to play with all her kennel friends and is always up for a game of chase. She has recently been having group play dates with Gracie the beagle and they have had such great fun together.
Rhinestone also loves a good chewy toy and will happily sit in a comfy spot and nibble away.
She is getting used to our touch more and more everyday, but will always approach us for treats or some nose boops and occasionally a fuss.
She has been on our section for quite some time now and as much as it’s a joy to see her everyday, it’s about time she found her forever home

Today was my first time meeting Rhinestone and she comes across as a bit nervous to begin with which is understandable as she hasn't met me before, but after getting some treats and offering them to her she kept following me around the yard asking for more, slowly feeling a bit more confident around me. She is such a beautiful and sweet girl and I can see how happy she is with her kennel friends, especially when they are in the yard and are all playing together, it's very cute. I have been told she is growing in confidence everyday and is slowly but surely getting used to a kind human touch. As stated in previous posts she would be best suited to a home with at least one resident dog as she would be able to watch and learn from what they do as well as have doggy friends to cuddle up with and lean on for support if she feels nervous at all. Please consider giving this beautiful girl her forever home, she has so much love to give and I know you'll find loads of joy with her being a member of your family.

Sweet lady Rhinestone has had to have a makeover today and she coped very well. She wasn't keen on her feet or chin being done, so a home with someone who can groom her themselves would be ideal, that way they can take their time doing it bit by bit and not overwhelm her.
Rhinestone has come such a long way during her time here, she'll now come over for a gentle fuss once she knows you are okay and won't hurt her. I really feel like she's reached a point where she is going to start loving walks soon too. I'll keep you all updated with her progress on this.
Rhinestone is continuously overlooked and its breaking my heart as she is such a beautiful girl with a wonderful personality, she just needs some people to choose her and start her good life.

Rhinestone has been with us in Foster since 7th April. She has made slow and steady progress. Rhinestone would prefer an adult only home with someone at home most of the time as she does not like being without a human in sight. Rhinestone now races upstairs to sleep on the bed with resident and other Foster dogs and now allows a gentle fuss whilst on the bed. At the same time she is still very guarded when being approached off the bed and still runs away. She will approach within the pack and give a nose bump and takes treats readily, getting confidence from the other dogs. She jumps up in excitement when we come back into a room and even jumps onto my legs but isn't quite brave enough to come for a head stroke. She does like to come for her morning chew stick and eats well without any food guarding. Rhinestone is still difficult to catch and we use the house lead to help with that. Sometimes she does succumb to being caught off the house lead but again this is a work in progress as she gains confidence. Rhinestone is gaining confidence with harness training and now will walk on a lead following a treat in the garden. There is still work to do before she is going to be confident enough to go for a walk in the big wide work as she is still fearful of anything new. Rhinestone has got on well with all 4 resident dogs since she arrived and she prefers the permanency of the resident dogs pack. She has become the longest staying Foster dog and although has generally been fine with all Foster dogs as the pack changes she has dominated the odd one although has not been aggressive. She would suit a home with a larger or equal sized dog or dogs preferably a male but not a submissive dog. A home with no or few visits dogs would be preferred. Rhinestone loves her morning zoomies round the garden and exercises herself out of breath. She does have a very thick and curly coat and it does need regular grooming at home including brushing and clipping a small amount at a time. If you can offer Rhinestone a forever home please do apply. She is going to be a loyal companion and has been overlooked for too long. 


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.
