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.

22-01-19 Hayley is a 6 year old female ex-breeding Bichon. Hayley is a nervous girl but she loves her kennel friends and they help her feel comfortable.  Because of this she will need to be homed with another dog or dogs that can show her how to relax and live in a loving family home. She will watch and start to copy what they do which will help her with house training, how to walk on a lead and other home manners. If given penty of time and patience this teeny girl will shine.

Hayley is a very sweet little Bichon. She is a small dog with a big character. Hayley will bark at people when they walk up to her, and still backs away - however, she is much more confident than when she first came in. She had never attempted to hurt anyone, and I don’t believe she ever would, she is still just a little wary of new people. She has the cutest little face, and looks extra cute when her hair is left to grow out slightly.
You can see that she wants to be loved when you look into her eyes, and when you pick her up, she will let you cuddle her for hours. She also loves a cuddle with her kennel mates, and is quite happy to spend the majority of the day in bed next to them. She is a good girl though and runs out to the yard for some exercise when I tell her to. Can you give Hayley the loving home she wants and deserves? She’s waiting for the right family to give her lots of loves, cuddles and treats!

Hayley is a shy yet sweet hearted girl who has a lovely temperament with people and other dogs. She does growl and bark when you walk past her kennel, but is slowly coming out of this. She is becoming more confident around strangers, but this will still take time. Hayley does walk on the lead, butis in the process of being trained on the harness and runs in and out during playtime.
She can be handled and is calm in your arms, although a little tricky to catch. As she is a shy girl we would like her to go to a home with another dog, or dogs, to ensure that she is able to come out of her shell and learn the ropes of house life completely. When we took her for a walk we found that she was uninterested in the cats and also is unbothered when people were walking past or when held by a man.

Hayley has been with us for 5 weeks now. I haven’t done an update because she had a poorly tummy (change of food) but she’s all better now. What can I say about this pretty little girl? First of all she is very intelligent, definitely one of the sharpest dogs I’ve had in my home.
She’s very small (cute) and what she lacks in stature she makes up in sass!
Hayley is extremely jumpy with quick movements but will take treats from your hands if you are patient. I make time to hold her and pet her every day and she eventually relaxes in my arms. She will need a patient home and a kind resident pet to continue to show her the ways of being an adored pet.
Hayley has some scarring in her left eye, which looks bright blue and adds to how pretty she is. She also limps occasionally but this doesn’t hold her back.
She loves to run up and down the garden with the other dogs. If small and cute as a button is your thing, then Hayley is the girl for you

Hayley has started to walk on the lead now. She plods along nicely sniffing at the edges of the field.  She sometimes gets scared and freezes, so I take a doggie sling and pop her in for a few minutes move along and put her back down and she starts to move along again.  Hayley is starting to love life again. All she needs now is a patient forever home to complete her happiness.

Hayley sits happily in the doggie sling as she’s not up to full fitness yet. I usually carry her to to a destination and she skips back home with her tail up and such joy.
Hayley is barking less at the men in the house and generally happier and more trusting. She still has a way to go, so will need a home with an understanding of nervous dogs. She is like a tiny teddy and would make someone patient a fantastic pet.





05-08-19 UPDATE

Hayley no longer needs to go in the doggie sling! She walks past all humans (men) and dogs with the her tail in the air.  Yesterday she has her 1st groom since being in foster here and they said apart from near her legs she was pretty good.  
Hayley is still nervous and will need an home with an understanding of this.   But in general will now sit near to us on the sofa, Wag her tail excitedly when she sees us.  She likes to join in chatting (yapping) with the neighbours dog along side my Cavachon  which is very cute. 
 Everyone who meets Hayley can’t get over how tiny and cute she is.   She was in kennels a long time before she came here and really deserves a forever home.

This makes my heart sing! Please excuse washing draped everywhere, but Hayley has started to play! When we picked up Hayley to foster her 12 weeks ago, I didn’t imagine this would ever happen. Hayley had no idea of how to be a pet and enjoy life.
She’s been groomed recently and what a difference it seems to have made to her joy. We went walking with my friend’s children today and she was so happy. They kept telling me she was smiling at them. Then when we got home ... this!
She is starting to allow us to love her more and more. As long as you approach her from the front she really is getting better. Did I mention she is sooo tiny. Which just adds to her cuteness? People comment about her being like a teddy when on walks and even more since her fancy hair do!

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.
