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.

17-01-2019 Mr Grise is a 5 year old male ex breeding Shih-Tzu. Mr Grise is very nervous but this could change as he settles into his new life so please read his updates! Mr Grise has  never been loved and is worried if we give him a fuss and is particulary scared around his rear end. He does have bad skin so he may be sore, so of course we will be treating this to help him recover. Mr Grise will need time to settle and learn house training and adopters who have owned dog before.  Any children would need to be older and dog savvy.

Mr Grise has come a long way since he arrived.  He was once shy and sad but now you can see the light in his eyes and a spring in his step. He gets on well with his kennel friends and really loves his comfy bed.  Today we went out for a walk with just a lead and he did amazing, he really enjoyed being out and enjoyed all the new smells, what a happy lovely boy he is, anyone would be lucky to have him.

Mr Grise (who we call George here) is totally unrecognisable from his initial write up.
This little chap is friendly, lovable, cheeky, curious, playful and an absolute delight to foster. Mr G originally went to a fosterer who has cats and he took a strong dislike to them, so he came into foster with me instead.
He is confident but respectful with my similar sized male and female dogs and just slotted in with them all. Mr G is very thin so is having three small meals a day to build him up gradually. He loves going for walks and can easily walk for an hour and he also loves playing with toys.
House training is ongoing but he is doing really well with being taken outside regularly with my dogs. He sleeps soundly in a crate in my bedroom.
In the evening Mr G’s favourite place is cuddled up on the settee with my young adult daughter, as you can see in the photos!. One thing to be aware of is when he is in a deep sleep Mr G does not like to be moved and will grumble but this is easily remedied by verbally waking him up first. Mr G has dry eyes which are being treated with eye drops so this will need to be monitored. He is a star and lets me put them in without any problem at all. He also has a stye on his eyelid. This gorgeous boy would love to have his very own forever family who will give him lots of TLC and a kind dog friend to cuddle up to and play with.

What’s a boy got to do to get his very own forever home around here?! Ok so I’m not perfect. My eyes are dry and I have lots of lumps and bumps because no one has loved me. And hey I snore really loudly and make strange snorting noises but this makes my foster mum laugh and she thinks it’s all part of my charm.
I take myself out to the toilet when the door is open and I now know the before bedtime wee routine so foster mum doesn’t even have to wake me up to go - aren’t I a clever lad! I love cuddling up on laps, going for walks and squeaky toys.
My foster mum says I’m a very handsome, friendly boy who just wants to be loved. She also says my very own family will be very lucky to adopt me but they just haven’t found me yet.
Lots of licks

Mr Grise went to the Vita Canis Style to Rescue Grooming Competition for a pamper session ... and he feels EPIC!
He behaved beautifully, took all the hustle and bustle in his stride and loved being fussed over. He also looks very cute!

Mr Grise is a loveable rogue! He loves going for leisurely walks then having a nap after, travels great in the car and sleeps soundly (and noisily!) in a dog bed in my bedroom.
He has taken to sitting outside basking in the sun contentedly after his breakfast, loves lying by your side and just enjoys being with you. He is a calm, laid back friendly boy although we still leave him alone if he is fast asleep and let him wake up by himself.
He sits and waits patiently for treats and meals but prefers to play with toys by himself. He is also quite partial to eating socks and underwear! We are teaching him to “leave it” in a positive way but this training would need to be continued.
Mr Grise is a star when I put his eye drops in. He recently had another groom in which his leg fur was cut shorter and we then noticed his front right leg is at a bit of an odd angle but looks as if this has been like it since birth.
When out walking Mr G can get defensive if larger male dogs come up to him to greet him and starts grumbling. So although he is living happily with my male cockerpoo, as well as all the girls, I think in his forever home, he would prefer to live with a laid back female of a similar size as he loves the ladies. Mr Grise really is an adorable quirky character who deserves to be someones special prince.

Mr Grise (who knows his name as George) is a loving, laid back, handsome boy who is still waiting patiently for the right family to call his very own. His favourite things are being with his people, playing with squeaky toys, going for walks then having a good sleep. His back legs have been a bit stiff but his twice daily walks and daily Yumove (natural supplement) are helping but these are by no means fast walks, as he seems to sniff and wee on every blade of grass!
As well as this, Mr Grise loves it when my daughter throws his squeaky toys which he happily chases after and this is good exercise for him too. Mr Grise doesn’t like to be moved when he’s asleep but hey, who does! He also needs warning when you are going to pick him up so he is not startled, both of these things may be because of his life before MT rescued him.
Mr Grise is a confident, calm, happy lad who makes us laugh a lot and could possibly be homed as an only dog but only in the right circumstances. He would like to be your world as you would be his!

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.

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