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.

01-05-20 Daisy is a wonderful ex breeding Labrador but sadly she is almost completely blind due to having mature cataracts, the most she sees is probably just light and dark. She also has several broken teeth. This poor girl is terrified of her new surroundings and understandably so, with all new sounds and smells in such a dark, lonely world. She does not know anything of walking on a lead and needs a calm and gentle dog to guide her. She won't know how to walk on a lead or anything of housetraining yet. Daisy is in desperate need of TLC and a loving warm home or foster home as soon as possible Given patience and kindness she will settle and adjust to her new world and she will start to have a routine, love and a reason to look forward to living. Please help her.

Sadly, Daisy is totally blind with very thick cataracts. We would like her to go to Rowe vets to see if anything can be done to restore some of her vision. If there is anyone out there who would like to foster or adopt her who live near Rowe vets then please get in touch with us. Unless, of course you would be willing to finance this yourself, then you can live anywhere and use any vet. Daisy really breaks our hearts and we hope that something can be done to help her.

Daisy has seen the specialist vet today and sadly she has PRA.
She has been thoroughly assessed and we are very sorry say that there is no surgery that can help restore her sight. 
We are extremely grateful to all who donated towards Daisy and the money will be used to settle the vets bills and then the remainder will be used to help treat another dog in need of specialist vet help, as explained in her Go Fund Me fundraiser. 
We are all very upset for Daisy but we are optimistic that she can live a full and happy life, albeit one in darkness. She can still hear the kindness in someone's voice, her sense of smell and hearing can help her along the way and she can of course feel the touch of a loving hand. 
Daisy has settled into her foster home, she’s extremely nervous and easily startled at the moment.
She is still very withdrawn and shut down and it’s going to take a lot of patience and time, she is not a Labrador that can be won over with food.
She’s learnt quickly to navigate around the downstairs and out in the garden, she enjoys going out in the garden and sniffing and is totally clean in the house already.

30-05-20 UPDATE

Daisy has been with me for 3 weeks in her foster home - she is still very shut down although she is no longer stressed in the environment she is happy just to spend all day in her bed. With a lot of persuading I take her out for walks twice daily she is very strong willed and will pull on the lead in order to get home, as I live in a small village she manages to go over fields as well 
She is very easily startled, this could be by a car or even if somebody saying hello it takes a lot of reassurance to calm her down to continue the walk it’s important that she is walked otherwise she would just spend all day on her bed.
She is a dog that is going to take a lot of work in order for her to continue to learn how to fit into a home. It will take someone with experience of dealing with dogs that are shutdown as she needs to be encouraged out of her comfort zone but not to quickly in order for her to continue to 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.


Although DAISY is by donation rather than the full adoption fee, we ask for a minimum donation of £150 to help cover our costs. All 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.

* 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.
