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.

18-11-2023 Ringo is a shy but ever so lovely boy who has come to us from a breeder to find his forever home. He is a larger miniature poodle weighing 9.4kg. Ringo is quite shy initially but soon warms up to you, enjoying a gentle fuss and is easy to handle. Ringo gets on well with all other dogs here and he will need a home with a kind resident dog that he can copy around the house and snuggle up to. He has never lived in a home before so will need understanding adopters that can help him learn new skills such as housetraining and learning to walk on a harness/lead when he is ready. Ringo has arrived with sore eyes and both eyes appear a little cloudy, he will be being seen by our vets shortly. Ringo is an absolute gem who will thrive in a loving home. Ringo has a pets travel document.

24-11-23 UPDATE
Ringo has seen our vets and has had 15 teeth removed, so will benefit from a soft diet going forwards. He also has bilateral cataracts in his eyes and may benefit from visiting a specialist to see if anything can be done to help him. He has also had his entropian repaired and is receiving treatment for inflamed ears. Our vets feel that he may be closer to 10 years old.

This is going to be a bold sentence, but I think Ringo may be one of the most perfect dogs I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. He is an angel sent down from Heaven in dog form and I love him with all my heart. He is the gentlest boy with the most pure soul, and all he wants is kindness and reassurance from us humans. He is still quite a timid boy, but he’s already starting to enjoy a soft tickle under his ears and he’ll politely ask you for more when you stop. His favourite thing though, is talking in a squeaky voice and wriggling your fingers at him. He gets all excited and wags his tail and play bows at me every time, it’s the sweetest thing!!
I took him out on a harness for the first time today and he did so well. He’s definitely been out on a lead at one point in his life! Any time he’d get a little worried, I would just bend down and talk gently to him to reassure him that it was okay, and then he’d be fine.  He may be shy at first, but I don’t think it will take him too long to come out of his shell. He’s very food orientated so this should help! Ringo has also passed his cat test.  

30-12-23 UPDATE
Ringo has been with me in foster for just over a week and he is a delight. What a gentle, sweet, laid back boy he is! He really enjoys his food but needs to be watched so that he doesn’t steal something when no-one’s looking.
He does have a mischievous side and much prefers to run off with and chew household objects rather than play with toys. He sleeps well with the other dogs in my bedroom and is quite capable of walking on the lead. He is a little nervous of traffic and the rain and wind though so he sometimes freezes and has to be encouraged to walk on.
His housetraining is doing well and he always goes outside when he has the opportunity. He has settled perfectly and is firm friends with the other 2 foster dogs and tolerant of Mollie, the resident dog, who is just a little jealous of him.

Ringo continues to charm with his sweet nature.  Although he is easy going, he does need a lot of supervision as he runs off with all manner of things, and will stand on his hind legs to reach them from surfaces.  In between his bouts of play and naughtiness, he will rest peacefully in his bed.  As long as he has plenty of opportunities, Ringo is clean in the house with the odd accident overnight.  He is calm and content in the car, although we haven’t travelled very far as yet.  He is very affectionate to me and likes to know where I am at all times.  A lovely boy who has settled so well in his foster home.

Ringo seems very content with his foster family. He enjoys his food and has now filled out after he was initially a little underweight on arriving at the centre. Although he towers over the other dogs, he is the gentlest of them all. He really enjoys the company of the 3 bichons in the home and wants to be wherever they are. He will definitely need a home with at least one other residnet dog as he does bond to dogs and is quite unsettled when not in their company despite his laid back manner, he really seems to get a lot from being with his doggie companions.  

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.
