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.

15-05-2019 - Indie has come to us from a breeder.  He is a very nervous dog who just lays on the floor when approached but will allow you to pick him him.  He needs some positive practice with this with lots of kind words of encouragement. Indie will need a resident dog to help him along and show him all about housetraining. In time he will settle and then his personality will start to shine through.

Indie is a very unsure boy but is learning to walkin on a harness and will walk with another dog.  He will move away from you when you first enter the kennel but with a slow and calm approach he will allow you to pick him up without a big fuss. Indie will need a resident dog to show him the ropes, to learn how to toilet in the right place and other skills he needs to live in a home.

13-06-19 UPDATE

Although he just met us for the first time Indie was very eager to go for a walk and was perfect on the lead. He was a little hand shy when we had to usher him to the side of the road as traffic passes but he seemed rather unfazed by cars. He took treats very gently and certainly kept up good pace

Indie is a handsome boy with lots of love to give. however he is a little unsure of people he doesn't really know. He walks on a lead really well and loves to play in the yard with his kennel friends.
Indie's confidence has grown but still would like to go to a home with a resident dog. Indie would love to live his last years in the comfort of a home he can call his own





02-08-19 UPDATE

Indie has only been in foster for only a week and what a smashing little boy he is. He comes over for a gentle stroke but each day he gets better. He is very inoffensive and loves his walks in the woods sniffing and investigating trying to catch up on lost years. He greets all dogs and is happy to see everyone on a walk. He has been extremely clean and sleep quietly in his crate all night. Indi is an early riser as he thinks the earlier he gets up the earlier he gets his food which he loves. Who ever gets this handsome little man is going to be very lucky. He’s a star.

18-08-19 UPDATE

Indi has been in foster for 3 week and his personality is really coming out. He no longer gets up early, but sleeps quietly with the other dogs. He is spotlessly clean and has only had one accident and that was when he first arrived. Indi now loves to be stoked and to go out in the car. He gets so excited when it’s time for a walk. He is like a handsome 7 year old puppy and a really happy little boy. If you have a little girl that needs a companion then please consider Indi.

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.
