26-12-2017 What a wonderful beautiful girl Lizzie is. She is a 4 year old pug cross who had been been returned as she is not house trained and very nervous about being handled.  Since she has been returned we have been working with her to raise her confidence with people and she  has become an angel.
When Lizzie came back she was nervous to start of with but now she greets people with such a waggy tail and comes and says hello to you.  She is still a little bit handshy but she is more than happy for you to go up to her and stroke her and make a fuss and also allows you to pick her up.  She is walking on a lead but will need a little more practice at this. Please give this girl a chance to blossom, she needs to go with another dog or dogs as she feels more comfortable with them.  We are looking for a home with experience of scared dogs who understand what she needs and we would only home her with children who are 16 plus and they must be dog savvy.

The lovely Lizzie was returned to the centre about a month ago now. I am the yard manager at MT and have had the absolute pleasure of taking her home with me at night after work for a few days now and I can hand on heart tell you that Lizzie is just the sweetest fur kid and is going to make one lucky family the most loyal and loving pet in the world.
Lizzie is still a little nervous of new surroundings and people but she comes round quickly and it didn’t take more than a few hours for her to decide her favourite place is on my bed but be warned she snores like a steam train! She is very quick in coming forward when she jumps up to tell you she wants cuddles as well once she is comfy with you which really does not take long at all.
Lizzie does have a very minor issue with small amounts of urine leakage and this is controlled very well with medication. The medication is readily available from a vet and is not expensive and is easily administered with her daily meals. it really is no trouble at all and other than the occasional small amount of urinary leakage Lizzie is doing really well with house training.  She will happily go outside to do her business without prompting when the door is open and she is learning to tell you she wants to go out when the door is closed but she does have the odd accident if she gets excited.
She has behaved impeccably with my cats and is not at all stressed or bothered by them even if they get up really close and have a cuddle with her so I think it is safe to say she is cat friendly. I have yet to hear her bark as well so if you are looking for a less vocal dog then Lizzie could be the one for you. She likes going out and about and having a good old sniff at new things and she walks beautifully on the lead. She gets on well with other dogs and will need to be homed with a family who have other nice, gentle and confident dogs to help her find her feet a bit more. Can you offer Lizzie the loving, stable home she deserves? Please apply below if you feel you can offer this amazing little lady the forever home she needs.

Our lovely Busy Lizzie is wondering why no one has applied to give her a home yet, she has been in foster with me for a while now and every day she shows me what an amazing dog she really is.
Since her last update Lizzie has found her voice and will now let you know if she wants to go out or wants love and cuddles.  She has spent some time with another fosterer when I had to go away for a few days and in this time she showed that she is happiest when she has a nice kind dog or two or three that she can cuddle up to and play with.
Her accidents in the house have diminished to only a few times a week now as she has gained confidence and is happier to go let me know she wants to go out and she really does love going out for a walk.  She has had no incidences of urinary leakage at all on her bed or my bed for that matter so her medications have got her well under control in that respect and I have seen that her accidents only tend to happen if she is very excited or a bit worried about something.
Lizzie truly is an amazing dog and neither her or I can understand why this gorgeous loving girl has not been inundated with applications.  Yes, she is going to take some time to settle into a new home but believe me when I tell you the time it takes is going to be more than worth it with all the love this lovely girl has to offer!
Lizzie is very driven by food as well, she will do anything for a treat and she eats her meals with great gusto!  She loves to sleep on the bed with me but what she really wants in life is another dog who will let her cuddle up and play with her.
Please make this girls day and consider offering a home!

Here's the latest news on Lizzie. She is progressing well and is well settled in with the gang in her new foster home.  Her recall is improving by the day and she is becoming more settled as time goes on. Walking on the lead is no great and she no longer shy's away from the harness but gets very exhited like all the others and it means we are going out.
Her apetite is great, she loves her treats and at meal times has the best manners. She goes to the place her bowl is put down and waits patiently, no more food envy.
Her house training is coming on well but she does still have a problem with her bladder in that she loses control at the slightest sudden movement or noise.
On Saurday all the gang are due to have their nails done so we will see how she copes with that. Summing up she is turning into a happy lady who loves company but who still has 1 little problem.

Sorry it's been a while but here is the latest news on Lizzie. She continues to be a happy member of the pack here and, although her bladder and bowel problems are still evident, she does try to be clean whenever she can.  In all other aspects she is in good health, walks very well on the lead and now has  excellent recall. On our visits to the beach she enjoys a paddle and loves to play chase with the smaller dogs.
I have never had any problems with her meeting other dogs and she loves meeting  people, be they visitors ar strangers when we are out and about.  Lately she has been showing motherly tendantcies towards the Chihuahua she is living with and also new arrivals, to me that is a sign that she feels safe now.

Lizzie is very happy with us here at "Hotel Chihuahua" and is now over all her nervy problems. She is happy to cuddle up and asks for attention, by giving a gentle reminder with her front paw that she is waiting!
Meal times are fun as she is very vocul whilst waiting to be fed and she has become a great house dog, joining in with the choir whenever someone approaches the house or when the phone rings.
Her bowel problems are still present although she does try to get outside when its needed but often failing. She always get priase for this.
Walking, recall and car travel are no problem to her. All in all she's a happy and well adjusted girl with only one remaining difficulty which regretfully will be there for her remaining years.

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.

Although LIZZIE (WAS HESTA) is by donation rather than the full adoption fee, we ask for a minimum donation of £100 to help cover the costs that have been incurred. 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. 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. 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.
