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.

20-4-19 Hugo  is a quite a scared boy who has come to us from a breeder as an unsold pup. This is because he has cherry eye in one of his eyes but this will be repaired here. Hugo  is scared of the world around him and cowers when approached. He has a slightly turned out back right foot but it doesnt seem to bother him. We are looking for a home with at least one other dog to help Hugo's confidence. Hugo will need to be neutered and needs to learn about house training and lead walking. He would benefit from attending puppy training classes to ensure he grows into a happy and well behaved young man.  With time, love and patience Hugo will become a fun and playful pup just like he should be.

Hugo is progressing well here but is still a bit shut down.  He doesn't act like a puppy much of the time which is really sad. He has had his cherry eye repair and there is still a bit of swelling but the vet is pleased with his op.
Hugo now walks on a lead as long as he is with his kennel mate, and I do take him up the road for a walk with his kennel friend a GSD, but he's not ready to venture out alone yet. He goes out in the play yard and this is the only time you see the puppy in him, running after a ball or carrying a squashed football, I just wish I had more time to play with him and develop his puppiness.
Hugo never seems to totally relax and I'd love to see him as a laid back dude with a smile on his face, this will day when he's rehomed with a confident dog.  Are you the home to make him smile.

Ive been away from Many Tears for a week and in that time Hugo has made some progress, so well done to Josie and Mark for working with him. Hugo now takes more notice of me and will kiss my hand and he'll play nip my fingers, being the puppy that he is. Out in the sandschool ha still has that puppy like floppy legged run when he is chasing with the other dogs, I'm hoping that Hugo will get his forever home soon, while he is still a pup

Hi All!!
I've been with my foster family for nearly a week and mummy has been teaching me how to socialise and share as she says is one of the most important things in the dog world.
I love every dog, big and small and don't mind at all sharing my toys and welcoming my doggie friends in the house.
I am really good on and off lead and can't get enough cuddles and kisses.
At home I am very chilled out "the king of the sofa" and always go to the toilet out in the garden. Mummy says I am extremely loving and Goofy that is why I can't understand why there is not interest on me, it makes me sad that nobody wants me, I don't need much, just another doggie companion, lots of walks and that you let me cuddle up on the sofa until I fell asleep.
Lots of wet kisses Hugo (Goofy for my foster family).

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.
