15-05-2019 Gem is an ex-breeding Beagle and is quite a nervous girl who is very scared of loud noises. Gem will let you pick her up but doesn't yet walk on a lead and will need house traning.  We are looking for a calm, quiet and gentle home for Gem with at least one resident dog to help her learn house training and lead walking etc.  Her new caning friend will help give her the confidence she is lacking with people in time she will transform into a loving little beagle girl.

Gem still awaits her forever home and very sadly, so does her group of Beagle friends. While she remains nervous, Gem's progress here has been tremendous and she has become very easy to handle and scoop out of her bed. She is a placid, gentle and kind lady with a beautiful temperament, however as she is still a tad nervous, she does need a very secure property and a certain amount of experience.
Gem relies heavily on her Beagle friends, she follows them constantly and curls up in bed with them for the majority of the day, as this is the case she definitely needs another dog in her forever home and it'd be a massive bonus if it were another Beagle!
Her progress in terms of walking on a harness and lead hasn't been as great as we'd have liked and while she may pick it up here with help from her Beagle mates, I believe she'd benefit hugely from a foster or forever home at this point to continue the work we have done. Gem is such a sweet, soft girl, there isn't a bad bone in her body, she's perfect with other dogs, large or small and she'll make somebody a very, very, lucky new owner

Gem's name really suits her as she’s such a wonderful little gem. When it comes to strangers, Gem can still be a little shy, but when she trusts you she really comes out of her shell.
Gem is a bubbly character who loves to play with her kennel mates. She will also play with people, but isn’t quite sure what to do with toys. She is starting to walk on the harness, although she is still easily spooked by loud people or moving objects. I am taking her out every day and little by little she is gaining confidence on the lead, and every day we make it a bit further.
When Gem calms herself on the lead, she remembers that she does like to adventure out and loves to sniff all the smells of the outside world. Getting her to walk perfectly will take some commitment, but I don’t think it will take that long as she is already progressing nicely.
Gem is a quiet beagle and remains calm in her kennel, she knows when playtime is and stays cuddled up with her kennel mates for the majority of the time spent in their kennel. She has been housed with bigger and smaller dogs and has loved all of them. She will need to be housed alongside other resident dogs as she will rely on them for confidence. They will also teach her the rules of home life.

Gem has come on a lot with me recently. She’s really starting to realise that people aren’t bad at all and is now always at the front of her kennel waiting for the next person to walk by and tell her she’s beautiful. She looks up at you with a sweetest look on her face, and a slight wag in the tail, as if to say ‘don’t walk on, just stay here with me and give me more attention’. It’s very endearing.
When Gem is excited she bounces around and wobbles her body from nose to tail, it has me laughing every time. She does this when it’s her time to go out and play, she gets so excited that she’s whines and wobbles until I open the door, she then bounds down the corridor to the outside world that she now enjoys so much.
We’ve been working on harness training a lot recently, and it’s really paying off. Gem is again excited when she seems her harness coming, and she’ll now trot along nicely beside me. She is still not 100% confident on her walks and will freeze if people approach, but today she got over some pretty big milestones. Gem used to be terrified of any noise when outside, but today she just kept walking and sniffing, even though there were lots of bangs and barks on route; there was even a horse doing some training in our round pen, and Gem just cruised on by! I’m very proud of her for this, and I will continue to take her out everyday and will soon get her walking perfectly, even when passing people and cars.
I can’t say much more about Gem, as I’ve said it all previously, but she really is a gem. It will be bitter sweet for me to see her head off to a home. I love her so much it’ll be sad to see her go, but at the same time I’ll be uber excited for her as she will be able to enjoy the rest of her life to the fullest for ever and ever. I just hope this opportunity arises soon for Gem, she really deserves this, she’s got so much love to give.

Gem is getting bored of waiting for a home now (hence the yawn). She has come on leaps and bounds since being here with us. She now walks nicely on a harness and loves to go outside and play. She’ll play with any other dog, and now also with people. Gem loves a cuddles and always wants a kiss on the nose too. She’s so beautiful and has a massive heart. Her long term kennel mate is going to foster this weekend and Gem will be lost in kennels without her, so if there’s anyone who wants a Beagle, Gem is your girl! She really needs a home now.

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 GEM is by donation rather than the full adoption fee, we ask for a minimum donation of £100 to help cover the costs that have been incurred. 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.

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