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.

17-1-19 - Rosa has been a breeding dog her entire left and now at eight years old she has retired. She is a super scared and really doesn't trust us yet. Due to her frightened nature we will need a very special and experienced home for Rosa with a kind resident dog to show her all about housetraining and to have a friend who speaks her language. She has had nothing but thorns in her life, It's time she bloomed. 

11-06-19 UPDATE
Rosa is a very sad little dog who has obviously been mistreated in her past and associates most people as a threat. She came to us extremely pregnant and had 4 beautiful pups who have now flown the nest. Rosa is not "vicious" by any means, she is just a very scared little dog and her response (until you have proved to her other wise) is to sort of get in there first. She growls and she will lunge forward.... yet offer her party size sausages or tiny pieces of ham and she looks at you with her head on one side and EVER so gently takes the treat. Rosa HAS improved a lot since socialising with our residant dogs but She is a very confused little dog who as she is growling wags her tail BUT she could very easily nip from fear and for this reason I wouldn't consider homing Rosa with children at the moment. Rosa loves cuddling up with the other little dogs in the house, for this reason it is quite important that she has a snuggle buddy to share her bed. House Training, she is doing brilliant and is now 95% house dry. Rosa is NOT a bad dog, she has been let down by bad people in her past..... we only hope that a really special person can see past her "quirks" and open their home and heart to her forever.

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.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

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