01-7-19 Remy is a  female bichon who has come to us from a breeder. She is a very frightened little girl who isn't too keen on humans at the moment but she adores her kennel friends and is quite happy when she's snuggled up with them. Remy will need a kind and patient home who will help her come out of herself along with a nice resident dog or dogs who will help her see that humans can be nice.  She will watch and copy what they do which will help her with house training and lead walking and build her confidence with people.

Remy is such a sweet girl but very nervous of new people so when she is scared, will sometimes bark to try to ward off any danger she perceives to her or her kennel friends. She does come forward when she's feeling brave and has taken to learn well from her fellow Bichon, Indigo, that things are not so bad here.
Even though Remy does not like to be approached, she will let me pick her up and handle her quite well, but at the moment she needs a lot of patience as the mental scars are sadly still with her from the past. She is not used to people wanting to comfort & take care of her so will need a calm resident dog in her new home and a person who can build up trust with her which might take some time.
She has been on harness training this week & each time there is progress with her taking more steps on her own, especially when she has a friend close by.

She is interested in cats so sheis looking for a cat free home.
Remy will need an experienced owner who has worked with dogs scared of people before. In a home environment I know she will do all she can to learn quickly & become the confident Bichon she wants to be.

Remy is a very scared girl she doesn’t like to be touched by humans at all she will run away and defend herself but after spending time with her everyday she’s slowly starting to trust again. Today she took a a massive step forward and let me harness her, also managed to take her out her kennel on the harness. She was very unsure but took a few steps then wanted to run back to her kennel.
Remmy needs a special home where the will be given time to trust her new humans she will need a confident resident dog to continue to learn about a home life.

Remy's progress is coming along each day she is with us but it is taking a lot of time and patience. She really does need a quiet home with another confident resident dog for her learn all about home life and get into a routine she is comfortable with. There are 2 staff members trying to work with Remy now, so hopefully her trust in people will start to bear fruit with consistency.
Although she does enjoy going outside and has taking to walking on a harness quite well with somebody she knows, Remy is still hard to approach in her kennel and will try her best to escape you. If cornered and felt threatened she will try to protect herself so will need someone who can work with her on her anxiety and fear. All the barking and visual noise going on in the background make it a very scary world and it can easily alarm Remy when trying to interact with her. We have put together some videos of her so you can see how she is doing when outside of her kennel. It takes her a while to settle but she definitely does enjoy going for a walk and I'm sure these moments do help her feel less stressed, if only for a short time.
Remy relies on the comfort of her kennel friends back on-site and has grown fond of August one of her Bichon companions. I see her following her out in the yard sometimes like she is her big sister which is very sweet. If there is someone out there with the experience of looking after scared dogs like Remy, please get in touch if you think you can offer her a second life. A much better one than she has ever had. She is so deserving and it makes me sad to know that there is only so much we can do for her here. She really needs a special person who can offer her a home that she can feel safe in and have no more worries.

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.
Large breed dogs over 25kg cost us considerably more  to spay and neuter so if you are adopting a large breed dog we would be very grateful of an extra suggested donation of £10 towards this increased cost to help us keep running.
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.
