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 Glow Worm is a very worried little boy who has come to us from a breeder to find his forever home. GLow Worm is feeling very overwhelmed at the moment and is not used to being handled so does panic if you try to pick him up and we are needing to use a towel at the moment to help us to lift him. He needs some practive with this along with gentle, kind and encouraging words and body language to help him to relax. Due to his fears he is looking for an experienced adopter who has had scared dogs before and an adult only home. Glow Worm 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. He will need regular trips to the groomers to ensure his coat is comfortable and manageable. He is an absolute gem who will thrive in a loving home. He has a PETS passport travel document.

Glowworm has had a trim since being with us and looks like a new dog!
He is still extremely nervous and is still wary of humans, he spends most of his time in the back of the kennel under the heat lamp with his kennel pals. He’s very shy when it comes to eating and won’t let you watch him, he’s also afraid of the noises the bowl makes so we usually feed him off the floor.
We’ve been working with him for a few weeks now and is slowly coming out of his shell bit by bit; But a loving home who can spend the majority of there time with him would really help this young boy!
An adult only home with no visiting children would be required and one with a confident resident dog in order for his confidence to bloom and to aid with his daily training.

It’s amazing what time can do! Glow Worm is starting to shine!  He still likes to spend his time under the warmth of the heat lamp but who wouldn’t with this weather! But now will happily approach the front of the kennel with his friends so see what’s what. Ruth his best friend brings out the best in him and they love to have a good run around in the yard. Glow Worm now has the confidence to not only eat from a bowl but also to eat along with his friends! Seeing him do this really made my day and we’re so proud of his progress!

Glow Worm is a very special boy who is looking for a very special person to dedicate their time and love in to helping him thrive. He is showing signs of relaxing and starting to enjoy things, especially dinner time and he does get very excited when he knows his dinner is coming.
He loves his kennel friends, he's good with males and females and has had little attempts at play, but they don't last long at the moment.
Glow Worm is looking for someone who is capable and willing of helping him progress (even though it shall be very slow) and who will be able to gently push him out of his comfort zone one tiny thing at time. This is not the environment for him to blossom and I know that with all the things he needs and plenty of time, he's going to be a wonderful companion for someone. He needs a home with no children, resident or visiting.

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.
