Gender: Female

Adoption Fee: See the adoption details below

Location: In Foster in
Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire

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.

12-01-20 Binky has sadly been returned after 2 months in a home. Unfortunately 2 of the resident dogs did not accept her and her adopters made the difficult decision to rehome her. She came into foster with me a little shell shocked and worried but is already starting to relax and play with my resident MT Westie Isla and her foster sister Tilly-Toes. It would be nice to get Binky into her forever home asap.  She has had cataract surgery and her vision is now good.  You can read her original  story below and see how far she has come and what an adorable little monkey she can be. Could you offer her the 5* home she deserves?

03-05-19 - Binky is an exbreeding Bichon. She is a very sweet girl who is happy to be handled. She looks at you and does that cute little head tilt that dogs love to do when you speak to them. She's adorable! Binky is a must have for any bichon lovers out there! Binky will be getting assesed by our vets regarding her eyes as she doesn't seem to see very well and we will update on this when we can. She will need a kind dog to follow and she can learn about housetraining and have a lovely friend in her new home.

As you can see from the video little Binky needs an operation to remove her cataracts and give her the Gift of Sight. This will help her adjust much more easily to her new life as having such limited vision and knowing nothing of being loved in a home is a very scary combination for this little sweetheart of a dog. Being able to see the smile and love of her carers, see her bed, her bowl and the rest of the world would make the such a difference to her. The operation is expensive but life changing. If you can spare even £1 we would be so very grateful for your support in giving her the precious gift of sight. To donate please click HERE Thank you, Sylvia x

Binky has come to me for fostering and for her to have surgery on her eyes (hopefully). She is an absolute delight and as you can see from this video just a buddle of fun, just imagine how she will be when she can see !!!! Please if you can donate so she can have the gift of sight she sooo deserves this to happen.

Hello everyone my name is Binky and I'm sitting on my foster mummy's lap taking a look at how much we have raised for me to have my cataracts done.
I'm a very good little girl and I try not to squirm toooo much when I have to have my drops in (there're to make my eyes healthy for my operation) I am full of fun for life and the bad start I've had has not put me off my Joie de vivre, that's French you know...I'm a VERY smart doggie.
My foster mum gives me lots of cuddles but gets cross when I try to look things up on her computer ...can't think why!! Very soon I will post my little happy dance that I do when it's dinner time or cuddles time you will just fall in love with me .
Foster mummy now: excuse the dirty eyes but the gel often gets on her fur, it's hard to remove and as I try not to spend too much negative time around her eyes I let that alone as it's not problem.

As promised here's my happy dance!! .She's going to be quite something when her sight is returned!! Hold onto your hats!!!

Binky has had her cataract surgery and is doing fantastic, both her eyes have responded well to the drops and for the first time in 3 years she can see.
She is an absolute live wire (if she was a human teenager she would have an asbo)!!!
She is super confident with people she knows but still wary of strangers. She will very happily come for cuddles and sit with you watching TV she will push other doggies away just to get to you as she seems to have no finesse or space awareness but I have to say she is a hoot and makes me laugh every day.
She is one of the happiest dogs I’ve fostered and just wants her belly rubbed at every opportunity !! She will be a joy to any home but you must be aware that she comes with on going costs. She has Yellox eyedrops once a day but this in time should reduce to 2-3 times a week (one bottle lasts about 1 month if put in daily) at a cost of £12.50 per month, then she has Clinitas eyedrops 4-5 times a day costing about £12 a month and then Tacrolimus ointment 3 times a day a 30 gm tube will most likely last a year and cost £47. On top of that she will need yearly check ups with a Ophthalmic vet so please check in your area if there is one near or with your vet to see if they can do the check up at the moment she goes to Rowe vets in Bristol. I have broken it down to a daily cost of £1.15 a day Less than a cup of coffee at your local cafe and so much more satiffying !!! Also these costs should go down as her treatment progress then she will need less eye drops

Binky continues to make me laugh every day, she is just one of the most delightful little Bichons I’ve fostered. I know she comes with a cost of less than a cup of coffee per day but she is worth every penny. She gets on well with my big and small dogs but it would be lovely to find her a home with a playmate. Please consider her you won’t be disappointed.

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.
Large breed dogs over 25kg cost us considerably more  to spay and neuter so if you are adopting a large breed dog we would be very grateful of an extra suggested donation of £10 towards this increased cost to help us keep running.
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.
