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.

02-08-19 Ruby Doo was adopted from MT some months ago, she orginally come from a terrible situation in Romania, where the horrors she saw would have been unthinkable.
She settled well in her new home where her family worked hard on her well being. Sadly after 6 weeks she loved her home so much she would not share it and has bitten the ankles of visitors. The lady that adopter her sadly has a business from home and this means people were coming and going all the time which overwhelmed Ruby Doo. 
We all thnk that Ruby Doo would be best in a quiet home with a lady owner and no children. She may benefit well from a large relaxed male canine friend. She will need a very special home and will be by donation. She is very well house trained and only walks happily in fine weather. She likes late lie ins in the morning and is a very easy dog indoors.

Last week marked the second day of adventures for myself and some Many Tears residents. I decided to take out Ruby Doo - a Romanian cross breed, and Butterfly - a Shar Pei for an adventure.  We settled on heading west, towards Ceredigion. Ruby Doo was harnessed up and strutted her stuff towards my car, which she then elegantly jumped straight into. She was very quiet and well behaved for the entire journey in the car, although, when the roads got very bendy, she did get a little car sick. She was very patient with me when I stopped to clean it up, and she was fine for the rest of the journey.
Our first pit stop was at the Welsh Wildlife Centre in Cilgerran. Ruby Do was eager to hop out of the car and investigate her surroundings. We headed up into the woodlands to begin with and Ruby Doo seemed to enjoy herself - sniffy all the doggy smells as we went. When we moved down to the more public walk, she did become a little more reserved in herself. However, there was a lot going on, from: cars, bikes, buggies, other dogs, groups of people (including children) and lots of new sights and smells. Despite this, even though Ruby Doo became hesitant, she took everything in her stride and kept walking.
I would recommend a nice peaceful home for Ruby Doo to go to though, as, based on our travels today, she is a quiet dog who would benefit from some TLC to show her that people aren’t as scary as she seems currently believes they are. As soon as we left the more hectic areas, Ruby Doo’s tail lifted again and the bounce in her step returned. This confirms that she will need a patient family who won’t expect too much from her to begin with - until she is properly socialised and builds her confidence up.
During this walk Ruby Doo gravitated towards water twice - firstly into a lake and then into a large puddle. As a result of this, we decided to take her to the beach as the weather was permitting. So, back in the car we went and off we headed - towards New Quay.
Ruby Doo travelled perfectly once again. As soon as she got out the car she had a whole different demeanour. Her tail was up and wagging immediately as she strided out towards the beach without an ounce of hesitancy. New Quay beach was quite peaceful, which was good for Ruby Doo. Surprisingly, when the water touched her feet, she didn’t seem best pleased and moved away. However, as she was on a long line, she did keep moving back and trying again. She did seem to enjoy the sand under her feet and definitely remained happy throughout.
We also met many dogs on our beach trip and Ruby Doo was happy to make acquaintances with them all. She made her way over to all of them, although did move away from some when they got a little too much her. Her favourite was a little cockerpoo. The dog came running over filled with excitement, I had my reservations about letting Ruby Doo go too close to her. However, she proved me wrong. Ruby Doo began to play immediately and she was very inquisitive. It was so lovely to see.
When we left Ruby Doo slept all the way home and went straight to bed when she was returned to her kennel. My heart felt heavy leaving her in a kennel once again as she enjoyed her time on the outside so much. Especially as she’s had a taste of home life before, so she has an understand of home comforts unlike many of our dogs. I do hope she’s able to find a loving family to take her in and give her the life she deserves. Ruby Doo will make a perfect dog with the right training and patience. Please don’t hesitate in giving this lovely girl a home. Apply now!

I have known Ruby Doo for some time.  Three days a week I feed and walk her early morning, at this time the rescue is quiet apart from dogs shouting for their breakfast. Today we visited the main part of the rescue, this area was very busy, Ruby Doo was rather overwhelmed, but with reassurance she coped well.
A visit to the horses was next, Ruby Doo said hullo and made friends with the staff who look after the horses. We headed off to my vehicle for our lunch date, I picked her up onto the front seat so she could sit along side me. Tomorrow I shall have to bring in tastier sandwiches, Ruby Doo declined to eat cheese!
This precious girl is a sweetheart.  She is sharing her kennel with Butterfly - oh how happy they are together but Ruby Doo has endured enough harsh winters in Romania.  A comfortable bed in her very own home and to be cherished is not a lot to ask for.

Although RUBY DOO ^ 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.
