21-08-2018 Hamish is a ten year old Cairn Terrier who has come in to us from a breeder.  He is a very sweet and friendly boy, who enjoys human contact and loves to be cuddled.  Hamish has itchy skin and sore eyes at the moment which we are treating  Hamish walks on a lead and loves his food.  Hamish is deaf and we think has very limited vision.  He does use his nose a lot to find his way around but will bump into things now and again. Hamish has spent his entire live in kennels so will need help with house training.  He will need a quiet home with another very calm and gentle dog or dogs who he can follow and will need someone who is around most of the day.

23-08-18 UPDATE
Hamish has seen the vet as he has sore eyes and poor vision. He has dry eye in both eyes and so needs to have drops put in which he is very good about. These drops lubricate his eyes and make them feel much more comfortable. He also has poor hearing which is quite common with older dogs. This darling boy needs a warm bed to lie in, good food and his eye drops along with cuddles and understanding.

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 HAMISH 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.
