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.

30-5-19 Camille is a beautiful girl who has come to us from a breeder.   She is very timid and handshy but will allow you to pick her up without much fuss. She is not used to being loved and stroked so this will take her a little time to get used to.   Camille will need another dog or dogs in her new home to help her build her confidence and learn about house training and lead walking.  She will watch and copy them which will help her settle into life in a home for the first time.

Yesterday I met Camille (on the left). Little Camille is a very petite little bichon who looks like a pup. She is a nervous, shy girly who moved away from me when I first went into her kennel but she was keen to keep an eye on me and did give me a little sniff.

Camille is still not used to human attention and shies away from me and runs away when I try to pick her up.  Once I do pick her up she accepts it without a struggle and allows me to stroke her and is not really frightened.  I think she is just not at all used to having love from people. Camille is in a kennel with other scared dogs so has no direction to show her that people are ok, a place in a foster home or adoptive home with a confident dog will bring her along nicely.

Camille has been in foster with me for 10 days now. She would love to be friends but is just too nervous, and runs away out of my reach. She is clean in the house as long as she has access to the garden and her toilet training is improving every day. Camille will need another small playful dog in her new home. At the moment I would not home her with children as they would just scare her to much. She does not walk on a lead yet but once she gets a little bit braver I will be starting getting her used to a harness and lead.

01-08-19 UPDATE
Camille has settled well with my dogs and she will now cuddle up with them, or follow them round the garden. Her housetraining is still a bit erratic and sometimes she forgets she should go outside and toilet. Camille is a lovely little soul and would love to be brave enough to come to me, I can however catch her and she seems to enjoy a snuggle. I have now managed to get her to wear a harness quite happily, but having a lead attached to it is a very different story, this will come with time and patience she just needs to realise that it will not harm her.

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.
