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.

21-11-19 - Xantara has come to us to find her forever home. Her name translates to protector of the earth but she is the one who needs protecting. She is very shut down and extremely sad in kennels, She doesnt belong here. We fear she has been attacked as she has scarring all over her face. She has dry eyes that may need ongoing artificial tears ongoing. What this girl needs is a fresh start. A loving home with a resident dog to be kind to her and show her all about house training and other home skills. She needs someone with time, patience and all the love she needs to help her settle, relax and enjoy her new life. 

14-12-19 UPDATE
This special girl has arrived in rescue and foster underweight but she is a happy, confident, sweet natured girl who likes a cuddle and enjoys being in a home where she is at last loved, warm and receiving regular meals, she has such a happy personality.  
Tara as she is known in foster is a very tiny cocker who has had lots of puppies and at some point she had a hard time as she has a couple of scars on her little face,  she currently has an eye infection and is receiving medication for  this and for her dry eyes, every day her eyes improve.
Tara has had a lovely bath and groom and she really enjoyed being pampered to make her feel better.
Tara will need a confident dog around her size to keep her company and to encourage and reassure her life is good now and her bad days are behind her,  she will also need owners to be around most of the day to help her with her house training which is going well here in foster,  and her lead training which will begin in the next couple of days.

28-12-19 UPDATE
Dear Xantara known as Tara here in foster has been with us a couple of weeks.
Tara has unfortunately been having a few seizures here in foster and tests show she is probably suffering from a form of epilepsy. She is now on medication daily (which is relatively cheap and costs will be discussed with prospective adopters).
Tara is a bright, happy, waggy tail, cuddly little girl.Tara will need someone to always be home with her and who is willing to allow her to sleep in their bedroom so she has the care and protection she requires if and when she has a seizure . An adopter who has had a dog before who has suffered seizures would be good so that they know what to look for and how to manage her epilepsy.
Seizures can be quite stressful and upsetting and her adopter will need to be able to cope with these if and when they happen. Tara will need another dog or dogs in the home for company, Tara is housetrained now and will ask to go into the garden, she does not yet walk on her lead as we are currently stabilising her epilepsy, she loves to play with her treat finding toys as she is very food focused after arriving in rescue very underweight.

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.
Large breed dogs over 25kg cost us considerably more  to spay and neuter so if you are adopting a large breed dog we would be very grateful of an extra suggested donation of £10 towards this increased cost to help us keep running.
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.
