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.

13-03-19 Petal is a 5 year old ex-breeding bichon. She is a nervous but quite placid little girl who is unsure of her new surroundings at the moment. She doesn't walk on a lead yet or have any idea about house training but with a dog in her resident home to copy and learn from we think she'll do just fine. Petal has some hair loss which we think is caused by hormonal alopecia and once she is spayed this should soon grow back.  Please give little Petal a chance to enjoy life in a home.

Petal has been here for a little while now she is still a bit nervous but as you can see from the video she is doing her best to be brave. She doesn't walk on a lead yet but with a confident resident dog and some routine I am sure she will get it in no time along with house training. She gets on very well with her kennel friends but is ready to have a family, she waits all day at the kennel door for someone to pick her, she is such a sweet girl who just needs someone to fall in love with her and give her a loving home and a chance at a happy life.

Petal is a lovely little girl who is very affectionate and although is still shy will lick your hand as many times as she can. She loves her kennel friends and loves to play with them! She happily share's both her food and toy's and loves to play with her kennel friends in the yard. With time and patience I think she will come out of her shell in no time! Her new forever home will need a resident dog to show her the ropes and to keep her company. If you think you have a place in your home for this little girl please put in an application.

I visited the centre yesterday and met this adorable little girl called Petal. She was keen to watch me from a distance and is soooo cute, just look at that face! I think once in a home environment with another friendly dog or two she will come round quite quickly

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.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
