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.

07-2-20 Xena has very sadly been returned to us for a second time. We really need her third home to be her forever home so please only apply if you have read the following write up and can offer her what she needs.

Xena is a 3 year old Malinois who has been returned to us for not getting on with other dogs in the home, it broke her owners heart as she did everything she could to make it work but unfortunately it didn't and it was not fair on the other dogs or Xena to keep them together. Xena will need to be the only dog in her new home as she is very affectionate with people and loves to be in our company and - while she meets other dogs well on a walk - she does not like to share her people's affection with them.

Xena will need an adult only home with someone who is experienced with the breed and has experience with rescue dogs. Her basic levels of obedience are good but her recall is not where it needs to be so she has been kept on a short lead or longline when going out for her own safety. She will need an extremely secure garden as she has been known to get over 6ft fencing in order to chase livestock. Xena will need an active home, she has lots and lots of energy to burn off; and she will need someone with a firm hand who can continue training with her. She is a super intelligent girl who really needs to exercise both her brain and body otherwise she will attempt to amuse herself.

We know we are asking for a lot but we really need Xena's next home to be her third and final home, we are all keeping our fingers crossed her that it will be third time lucky for this beautiful girl.

19-02-20 UPDATE

Xena is a very intelligent, loving, comical and busy dog. She is desperate to get out of kennels and get going on all her adventures. She saw sheep today and did want to chase them so she will always need to be on a lead around livestock. Xena needs clear consistent rules and the training to go with them, as long as you give her the time and attention she needs then I can see her being the most incredible companion.

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 XENA (WAS HONOUR) is by donation rather than the full adoption fee, we ask for a minimum donation of £100 to help cover our costs. 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.
* Many Tears uses Vanguard to vaccinate their dogs.  However, this can sometimes be difficult to source at local vets so if you are adopting a dog or puppy that has only had one vaccination please be aware your vets may require you to start the course from the beginning.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
