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.

23-11-2023 Margate is a stunning but very confused boy who is overwhelmed to be here and has been through so much change recently. He has come to us from a breeder to find his forever home. Initially when you first meet him he is mistrustful of strangers and unsure about being handled - he will make his worries known by growling. However once you have spent a few minutes in his company showing that you are safe he quickly warms up to you and jumps all over you for love and attention. We suspect he may have lived in a home before and then returned to the breeder hence his unsurity of people initially which is fair enough, poor boy! Margate already walks on a lead and would probably prefer to be an only dog.  Margate will need a cat free home as he is far too interested by them and a home without children or visiting children as he would find them too much. Margate may need help learning to live in a home and being taught housetraining skills. Margate is such a poor soul who just wants to be loved and to feel safe. Margate would need a home that is experienced in resource guarding and can help Margate work through his struggles. Margate can resource guard when he has food or high value treats/chews/bones around both dogs and people so this would need to be managed with an environment set up to ensure lovely Margate is set up for success.

Hi! My Name is Margate I am 2 years old male Bocker (Cocker X Beagle) and have found myself at this amazing place called Many Tears. When I first arrived, I was extremely worried with my new surroundings, and adapting back to kennel life was very tough. I have spent a little time in a home but because of my high energy levels and need for adventures my family wasn’t able to provide this so unfortunately through no fault of my own I have set out on an adventure to find my new forever home. In my new home I would need a child free home with no visiting children. In my new home I will need someone who understands my breed and have had experience with similar breeds. I am currently in a bedroom (Kennel) with a female Bocker called Nova. We don’t interact too much but we do enjoy one another’s company so I could be happy having another friend in my new home upon having a meet and greet at the rescue. I can also be an only dog as long as I have a loving owner who plays lots of games with me. I have mastered walking on a lead and I absolutely love to explore and go on walks so having a busy home who is as on the go as I am would really benefit my energy levels. I still struggle a little to find the toilet but if I’m shown I will definitely find a way to go in the right place. when I meet new people I can become a little shy and anxious so go slow with me, have a kind voice and I will wag my tail and ask you for some fuss. After spending a day with you i trust very easily and I will become your best friend. If you’d like to meet me I am currently at the many tears rescue.
Margate is still waiting for his forever home at Many Tears and despite his struggles around food and resource guarding from humans and dogs when food is involved, all he needs is an experienced home with the ability to adapt and help Margate with this. He will bring so much joy into your home and he can't wait to be a cherished member of the family where he can go on lots of adventures and finally be loved.

Margate is a gorgeous 2 year old Bocker who I have spent a lot of time getting to know recently and has come along way since his last update. He greets you with a waggy tail and excitement when he knows you and does enjoy a gentle fuss. He is also getting used to his name and when you call him he will turn to you. Margate has very high energy and needs an active household who enjoys long walks and adventures and are able to stimulate him mentally as well as physically. He also walks on a lead but can pull, this can easily be managed with lead training and I believe will settle once he gets to go on regular adventures with his new family as he enjoys the sniffs of the world . Margate loves to learn and play and due to his breed, he will need adopters to understand the Bocker breed and the energy they have. Margate currently is kenneled with a female cocker and they spend their time together playing in the yard and rolling around in their beds together. They both get on very well! Due to Margate's resource guarding, him and his kennel friend have bedding and blankets rather than plastic normal beds and they both share this with no problems. Margate does have food guarding issues  and is fed seperate to his kennel friend. This can also be managed in a home with another dog if he is seperate at feeding times. Margate does take treats from you when his kennel friend is present and has not shown any issues towards them but this still needs to be remembered. I have been visiting him when I'm not on the same section to issue treats around other dogs in proximity to get him used to being in the same space around other dogs with food and treats. With these small issues, Margate will need an adult home with no children.
Margate has mastered a few tricks with treats, learning to sit and give paw. He gets very excited when you ask him but need to tell him firmly. Margate can be jumpy and will jump on you so he will need a firm voice to encourage him manners. Margate learns quickly so I think teaching him house training, lead training as well as other tricks and manners will come quickly for him, especially with treats!
He is a stunning boy and over looked here at the rescue. If you have a Bocker sized hole in your heart and are active, love long walks, adventures and fun. Please consider applying for Margate.
