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.

03-03-2020 - Olivia is a lovely 6 year old Cocker Spaniel who has come to us from a breeder to find her forever home. Olivia can be a little wary of new people initially but once settled she is a completely different dog and is oh so waggy! Olivia is such an incredible and beautiful girl, she walks well on a lead and is very friendly. Olivia will need a kind resident dog or dogs in her new home to teach her all about home life and help her learn all about toilet training. We believe Olivia may have an eye condition called GPRA (General Progressive Retinal Atrophy).  This is an inherited eye disease commonly seen in Cockers. This results in night blindness gradually leading to total blindness.  So Olivia is going to need a very special home to love her and would are able to take care of her her medical needs.  She is such a superstar of a dog, who will make any family feel so lucky to share their life with her.

31-03-20 UPDATE

Olivia has settled well into foster, she is clean in the house and sleeps quietly, alone in a crate overnight. Olivia is a friendly girl who loves her walks and happily greets humans and canines.
She has, however, shown guarding tendencies in the home. We are able to take control of this, but for this reason are looking for an adult only home where Olivia can be an only dog with an owner who will be firm but kind.
Olivia is believed to have GPRA. Whilst we have encountered no evidence of sight related problems this is something that would need to be taken into account.
Olivia is a super girl, responsive to training, who just wants to be loved.


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.
 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.
* Many Tears uses Vanguard to vaccinate their dogs.  However, this can sometimes be difficult to source at local vets so if you are adopting a dog or puppy that has only had one vaccination please be aware your vets may require you to start the course from the beginning.

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