30-50-19 - Helena is a very sweet ex breeding girl who is missing her front teeth. She will let us pick her up to check her and settle well in our arms and just looks around at the world above. Helena will need anoher dog in her new home to help her along her way, show her all about housetraining and let her copy other such home skills. In time she will relax and start to shine.

I visited Many Tears yesterday and here is Helena snuggled up in a bed of 4 or 5 other dogs. She wasn’t quite brave enough to come and see me but she was quite happy for me to give her a little stroke from her bed. She has long ears and a pale nose which makes her a bit unique. With lots of love and tlc she will become a happy confident girl.

Today I met Helena, she is such a pretty girl but unfortunately at the moment she is still timid and won't come out of her bed to greet you but she doesn't run away either.  This little darling needs a home of her own so that she can learn all about the home life she deserves. Helena will still need to have another dog in her new home to help her, but I think that she will settle quite quickly.

What can I say about this beautiful lady just look at that face and her beautiful hair style she has Helena is a quiet sweet girl who is quiet in kennels.
She loves to relax with her friends all cwtched up in their beds however when there are people having a look around of staff in the yard shes more than happy to have a nose at the kennel gates to see whats going on.
Helena is a happy girl in her kennel as she has her friends with here when its play time she loves to explore the play yard and looks happy to be out ...However she can be a little nervous of us humans. Helena is happy to be stroked in kennels and she will let you pick her up but you have to be slow and kind with her as she is unsure what we are going to do.
I took her to the gardens today for her to get out of the kennels she was nervous but seemed happy to sniff the air and take it all in. We met some people and children who we sat with but she did get a little nervous. When I took her back to her kennel friends she was happy and her tail was wagging as if proud of herself.
This little girl just needs someone to trust and to give her the love she deserves. Helena will need a kind calm doggy friend so she can learn from and a quiet house and someone who understands it will take a little time.
There's a beautiful girl waiting to come out. She does not walk on the lead but this will come in time and she also needs help with toilet training as this is all new to her Helena says come and visit me

Meeting Helena and spending a little time with her was such a priviledge. She is the prettiest, sweetest girl of small stature, who allowed me to pick her up and did not flinch when I touched her all over. Although somewhat apprehensive at being apart from her kennel friends, she sat quietly for her photo shoot, relaxing on the most comfortable of quilt beds made by our very kind supporters. At this time Helena does not walk on a lead, but she is a bright girl who will quickly learn how to do so. A home with at least one resident dog is imperative, this will aid her confidence and be company for to snuggle up with.
A huge thank you to our supporters for making such comfortable beds for our dogs, from Helena, and everyone at Many Tears.

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.
