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.

20-06-2018 Charlie is a gorgeous boy  who has come from a breeder and now here looking for his forever home! Charlie has limited vision and his pupils have a slow response to light. There is a chance that his vision may deteriorate further and so he is by donation only. He does need ongoing eye medication and his sight will need to be monitored by his vet. His owners need to be in the financial position to cover any medical expenses relating to his eyes as this will not be able to be covered by insurance.  Charlie is looking to be homed with at least one confident resident dog, who will show him nothing but kindness and love. He would prefer a quiet home - a retirement home if you will, where he will get spoilt and learn about the finer things in life ... delicious foody treats which will put a little bit of spark into the old boy and make his tail wag! A big pillowy, warm, comfy bed, lots of loving cuddles from his new family, a beautiful garden to explore and chill out in.  Things he's NEVER experienced in his life as a breeding dog.

Oh Charlie I don't know why no-one has applied for you yet. Especially as Cavaliers get adopted so quickly. Perhaps it's because you're slightly older than some of the others looking to be adopted... but you are SUCH a good boy and an easy boy to look after. You're a quiet lad, very gentle too. You are still a little timid, but you are starting to get more used to what us humans call a fuss - I remember when you first had fuss from us - you'd cower to the floor, submit and roll on your back, trembling in fear, looking up at us - your eyes almost bursting out of your head because you were so frightened, bless you.
Your face has turned even more grey in the month and a half you've been at the rescue... Last week I did your eye drops - you were so brave and good at having them done. I walked off to get the dogs in the sandschool kennels ready for bed, it takes me about half an hour. Lisa gave you your final lot of eye drops for the day, and afterwards came over and asked me if i thought the right hand side of your face had fell...I hadn't noticed, and felt bad I hadn't noticed something like that, so we rushed over to your kennel to have another look... In that half an hour, from the time I had done your eye drops - to the time Lisa did them, your face had indeed was so noticeable....We suspect you had a stroke in that time boy :'( I'm so very sorry no one was there for you when it happened.  But you are Ok...
You're learning how to walk on a harness and lead which is rather fun! You've taken a few steps, and at the moment exploring means having a lie down and having a good look around! Your favourite spot is on the grass next to the water feature in Sylvia and Bills garden. You enjoy the pace, the beautiful sounds of nature, and the odd person walking past to look at and make a fuss of you! And when we see some of the girls taking their lunch up at the sandschool, we carry you over to see what we can steal don't we?! Despite having not many teeth left, you can still suck a crisp off your Aunty Lisa, and you like to drop it in Aunty Melissas dips lol. Haha! Don't worry - we wont tell the managers the real reason you're getting a little podgy!
You've had a much needed bath and feel lovely now. You were again such a good boy, but you couldn't look at me afterwards so we missed out on a clean Charlie selfie! And then, one of the female dogs in your kennel was jealous that you had been pampered and was mean to you, so she got removed didn't she.
Anyway - Charlie-Barley, Charlie Chocolate...guess what?!...You're meant to be going into foster next week!I'm sooo happy for you! I hope you have a long and happy life, and have lots of treats, fun, and adventures. Love you honey bunny

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 CHARLIE 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.
