22-12-17 Gully is a 3 year old ex breeding pug cross Beagle. She is so gentle and sad as she has never understood the love of a human. All she knows is the breeding kennels she came from so this world must seem so daunting to her. She needs another dog as she has only ever been around dogs and a kind and confident companion can lend her some courage and show her new things such as housetraining and walking on a lead, by leading her and setting a good example to follow. Gully will relax if giving the right support, patience and love.

Gully is a gorgeous young dog with the most beautiful, soulful eyes and expressive face. She is the most frightened dog we have fostered in 8 years. She is very frightened of people but she is a gentle, sweet soul that gets on with all other dogs, male, female, large, small, young or old. We have never seen her her show any signs of aggression and she will let any dog have her toy, treat or food if they want it.
She is only 3 years old and as she has settled in to living in a home, she has started to show the happy, playful girl she wants to be. She loves home comforts and has been clean in the house since day two and even barks to ask me to let her out. She loves spending time in the garden and likes to lie in the bushes or stretched out on the decking. She watches what is going on with the other dogs and looks like she is desperate to join in but just needs to build her trust in people a little more.
Initially, Gully stayed in the room furthest away from us and even from the other dogs as she was so nervous in our company but over time she has integrated more and more into the pack and is now happy to relax in the same room and enjoys stretching out on the sofa watching tv, usually cuddled up to another dog. She seems to gain confidence from my male Dalmatian and is often found with my other foster dog, another more confident pug cross girl. Gully will now join in their mad play-times and games with me, especially when they all start bouncing around and nagging for their food. Her tail wags and she play bows with me and looks a different dog from the scared girl that other people see. She will even take a treat from me and allow me to stroke her but on her terms and only for short periods as any more and she gets stressed quickly but this is a huge improvement from when she arrived.
Gully is wary of all humans but is not especially scared of men or women, she just needs time to work people out. She has got used to friends and family visiting and soon settles down back into her routine - although she does not allow new people to touch her and will scuttle away if they approach her. Gully is particularly terrified of children even teenagers and will scrabble to get away and will bark at them to stay away from her and will often poo herself in sheer terror. Even after months of living here and learning to accept me she is still very frightened of my daughter and will bark and flee every time my daughter comes in the room. Therefore, Gully needs a quiet home with no children.
Gully is a project dog and will need time and patience to build her trust in people and the outside world. She is often in a state of high alert where people are involved and always has her escape route planned. She is not able to go on a harness and lead yet and go for walks, as this would terrify her and she would still try to bolt. She is truly a delightful foster dog and it has been lovely to see her confidence grow and her true personality emerging from the fear. She follows me everywhere and its clear she wants to be brave and have fun and cuddles.
She sleeps quietly through the night in a dog bed in my room and she can be left for a few hours in the company of other dogs. She is fine now with normal household noises like the washing machine and hoover and even the lawn mower does not bother her.
Gully just needs a home with patient and loving owners who will be happy to work with her on building her trust and that understand this will take time but they will be rewarded with a gorgeous, loyal and playful companion.

Gully is still waiting patiently for her forever home. In the meantime she is enjoying life with her fosterer, loving free time on the local beach and learning more and more about love everyday.

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.

The adoption fee for an adult dog (6 months and over) is £220 and for a puppy is £250, However if the dog has a passport you will be given this when you adopt and we ask for a further £20 to help us buy a passport for another dog. You will find a break down of what the adoption fee covers under our Adoption Procedures (see link below) 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.
