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 Iris is an ex-breeding yorkie and is a very scared girl who has to be cornered to be picked up at the moment.   Once in your arms Iris will fidget but will settle after a while although she is still  tense. iris will need a quiet and calm home with at least one gentle and kind dog to help her settle into home life and gain some much needed confidence with people.  She doesn't walk on a lead yet and will need help to learn about house training etc.

Iris is a very sweet girl I met her today for the first time.  She came straight up to me, let me pick her up and even let me put a harness on her! She has come a long way from the shy and nervous girl she was when she first came to us. She is still slightly timid but you no longer need to corner her to pick her up which is amazing.
Today I took her for a little walk in the garden and I must say for her first time on a harness she did very well as you can see from the video, she walked around the garden taking in all the new smells. Iris met our resident donkey today she is not a fan at all it was all new to her so maybe that's why, she has been in the kennel with smaller dogs so I think a home with small dogs would suit her best as larger animals are a bit intimidating to her at the moment, and while she is still finding her feet in the big world a calm and quiet environment would suit her best.
She is a happy girl and wags her tail when you go into her kennel to give her some fuss, she is absolutely adorable! With a face like hers how could you not love her. Iris hasn't had the best life so far and being 5 years old she is very ready to have a forever home with a warm bed and all the love she deserves she is going to make a wonderful addition to one very lucky family.

Iris is a sweet loving little girl. She had been bullied so is scared of dogs that are bigger than her. Iris really enjoys her walks and walks beautifully on a lead and harness. She has just been on holiday with us and our dogs in our motorhome and she travelled really well. She sleeps in a crate at night & we don’t hear a sound from her. She is clean nd dry as long as she has regular trips to the garden.
Iris could go as an only dog if her people were around most of the time. Someone retired who would love to give her lots of cuddles would be ideal. She can be left for short periods . She gets on well with my Chihuahuas but anything larger makes her nervous. Iris needs a home where someone is there most of the time with no small children as these would frighten her. She would love to be someone’s little lapdog and be treated like the Princess that she is. If this is you please fill in an application form and Iris will give you her heart.

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.
