05-04-19  Ruffle has been a breeding girl all her life. She has not been handled much at all and it will take time and patience to help her learn to trust people. She is not mean or snappy but she does everything she can to avoid being handled likie turning in circles and hiding away. She will be a poppet once you have made the break through, but please bear in mind it will take time. She will need another dog or dogs to help her who an help her to learn all about house training and how to be a loved member of the family. Ruffle will need a child free home with people who have experience of scared dogs.

Ruffle can be approached although is very scared, being patient with her is key.  She has not been handled much so will try her best to keep away from you ,however,she can be picked up and is not aggressive at all. She can bark at people as they walk away and this along with her fear can be worked on, with training and another resident dog to help her, it'll be no time she'll come out of her shel. Most of all she needs patience and loads of love and understanding and she'll be the most beautiful girl. There must be someone out there can can help this beautiful girl and give her the forever home she needs.

Ruffle is still leaning that she can trust people and is still very hand shy at the moment but with some TLC and patience she will learn that we don't mean to hurt her. She loves her kennel friends and gets on well with them. She has no problem with shearing her toys and food and is quite playful. She would need another resident dog in the home to show her the ropes and help her with her confidence.Ruffle is a lovely girl and if you think you can help her come out of her shell please.

Ruffle is a character! She is an inquisitive, curious and cheeky lady, who seems ready for anything when she is in her kennel! When she sees people coming along, she will come running up to the front of her kennel, let out a few barks and jump around with her friends. With people she knows well, she will approach them and give their hands a little kiss before running off. She is still shy, and wary of new people though, and is still getting used to human contact. Despite the fact she will approach people she knows well, she will still avoid being stroked, so you do have to unfortunately corner her to stroke her to get her more used to being handled. Her face becomes a little worried, but strangely, also more relaxed and innocent at the same time!   Her facial features soften and she look so sweet and innocent bless her!  She is easy to pick up though, and once in your arms, she will cling onto your arms so tightly!
Ruffle shares her beds, food and toys perfectly with her friends, and she is often found cuddled up next to her fellow doggy friends in bed. It is so lovely to see her nice and relaxed. At playtime, she will run straight outside and down the corridor and into the play yard where she will run around having a good old nose and sniff about. She has just started her harness and lead training and has taken a few steps but currently prefers to sit and watch and take in her surroundings! When she does eventually get walking properly, I'm sure there will be no stopping her!
Ruffle seems to get on better with outgoing dogs who are the same size and bigger. She is a busy bee who I think will become very adventurous once she finds a bit more trust in us humans, and also very loving. She is certainly going to become a character and a proper dog!!!

Ruffle has been with us now just over 3 months which is way too long.  She is a little shy but loves to play with her kennel friends and gets on with pretty much with any dog. She is doing well with her harness training and just needs that break in life to find her forever home.

Still scared but still so beautiful. Ruffle has been with us for a while and it’s only with persistent training that we may help her realise it’s all for her best. You will often find Ruffle at the front of her kennel singing the ‘Adopt Me’ song, but so many humans mistake it for barking they just walk on by and leave her singing.

Ruffle is unfortunately one of our long stayers now having been here 5 months. She has come along way since she arrived as she was so shut down. I'm gonna spend this week with her trying to get her out her shell more, exploring etc and hopefully we can find her forever or foster home by the end of the week. This morning was the first time I got to spend some time with her and as you can see she is nervous of new people at first but we have a week to get use to each other and I'll keep you posted on her progress

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.
