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.

20-11-23 Maggie has come to us from a breeder ready to find her forever home. She is a very scared girl who will initially run away from you. She is very worried about being handled at the moment and if pushed out of her comfort zone she will start to panic and may choose to make the wrong decisions. Maggie will be looking for a calm and quiet, adult only home where there are no visiting children and with adopters who have experience of scared ex-breeding dogs. She will need at least one other kind and confident resident dog in her new home to be her friend and take her under their wing. We can tell that she is a very sweet and sensitive soul, she just needs a calm and quiet enviroment where she can start to come out of her shell and realise that human hands are kind and that her life from now on will be full of love. She has never lived in a home before so her adopters will need to be kind and understanding as she settles in and learns all about home life and new skills like house training. She doesn't yet walk on a lead and will need to get used to wearing a harness and lead around the home and garden until she has enough confidence to venture outside. She needs an understanding adopter who will take things slowly at her pace and once she starts to come out of her shell and trust you, she will pay your love back tenfold. Her eyes are a little weepy at the moment so our vet will take a look at this.

13-12-23 UPDATE

Little Maggie has made a lot of progress in such a short amount of time and I’m so proud of her. She’s already so much better at being handled and she will actually approach me to give me kisses and sniffs now.
I’ve had to put a jumper on her every day as her coat has been shaved, and at first she was a wriggly monster and it would take me a while to do, but now she stands still when she knows I’m coming and allows me to do it with no problems. She’s still not exactly happy about being picked up and handled, but she does tolerate it now. 
Maggie will still need a resident dog in her new home, and it would be nice if they had a playful side so they could have some fun together. Maggie gets these bursts of energy every now and again and likes to zoom around the yard and the kennel and try to get her friends to join in .. it’s too cute!! 
Maggie is definitely not going to become a lap dog overnight and it will take some time and work to get her close to being a ‘normal’ dog, but please believe me when I tell you it will be so worth it. I can see there’s a beautiful natured girl inside there with a definite cheeky side, she just needs to learn it’s okay to let it out.

Maggie is slowly learning to trust and now jumps on sofa for a fuss.
She is clean in the house and lead training is work in progress. 

She is a sweet girl who just needs patience and love.

Maggie has come on so well. Now enjoying her walks.
She is still nervy, but does jump on sofa and licks my hand for a fuss. Maggie will need time and patience till she gets to understand kind hands. A playful resident dog, would also help her learn about home life.

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.
