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.

25-7-19  Very has come to us from a breeder.  He is a frightened little lad but he will very slowly come over to you to sniff your hands but won't allow you to stroke him yet. When picked up was very nervous and just wanted to get away.  However, he is young and with time, love and patience he will slowly start to gain some confidence and learn that we are not going to hurt him.  Very will need at least one other dog in his new home who he can watch and then start to copy as his confidence with people grows.  We are looking for an adult only home who are experience dog owners and who understand his fears and who understand he will need to learn about things like house training.  Very has a passport.

27-08-19 UPDATE

Although Very is still nervous he will come to us but will back away if you move too quickly. He now lets you stroke him before backing off a little and then comes back for more, especially if his two room mates are having attention.
As he is still a little nervous he will need a quiet home with another resident dog to help him settle and snuggle up to for reassurance. He lets you pick him up but he’s unsure so freezes and then will run away when you put him back down again, so he is going to need some patience as he gains his confidence.
Very has never lived in a house so will need house training and learn how to walk on a lead. We are looking for an adult only home who are experience dog owners and understand nervous dogs. He also has a few skin sores which we are putting cream on to help heal. Although I have never taken him out in a car, he does have a passport which means he can travel. Come and meet this cute little boy, you won’t be disappointed

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.
