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.

15.05.19 Indo has come to us from a breeder and arrived here a little confused.  He wants to be friends with humans like the other dogs but gets worried when you approach him and freezes up. It will take a little time and somone special to help him learn to trust. Indo will need to go to a home with at least one other dog t o help build up his confidence and this will also help him with lead walking and house training etc.

Indo is doing very well here at Many Tears. He has only been here for 1 month and in that time he's proven himself to be a very good boy! He gets on perfectly well with all dogs, and has shared his kennel with other males as well as females. He shares his beds, food and toys perfectly too. He has already discovered that toys are fun, and his current favourite is one of those crinkly newspaper toys!
Indo has just started his harness and lead training. He likes to have a good nose at his surroundings and will take a few steps, especially if there is another dog out with him. On one of his outings he met a cat and he was happy for Ginger (one of our resident cats) to be around him! So, he has passed his cat test!
I think Indo will become quite an adventurous lad because he even climbed a few rocks on one of his first times out and about! Indo spends every day at the front of his kennel nosing at the goings on of the centre and waiting in great anticipation for something exciting to happen in his day. Outside in the sandschool he loves to play chase, and loves to chase after my very fast foster dog! Indo will approach people and give our hands lots of licks and kisses, he will also take treats from us. He still avoids being picked up, but he does settle in our arms. I hope a fosterer steps forward for this boy soon, or even better his forever 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.
