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.

19-12-2016 Mince Pie is a 4 year old ex-breeding shih tzu.  She is a very sweet girl who came in with breathing problems. Despite this she wags her tail and so wants to be loved. Our vet is seeing her and we will update about her later but she will need a calm and gentle home with at least one other kind dog to help her learn about house training and lead walking.  She has never been inside a home before so this will all be very new and strange to her at first but with time and patience she is going to learn to love her new life.

Mince Pie is known In foster as Pie or Darth as she has very small nostrils which makes her snort a lot! It's quite funny when you get used to it. Pie is slow with walking on a harness as it's still quite scary for her outside. Now she's used to the garden she's exploring to the max. Going by her behaviour Pie has lived somewhere in a very small area as she circles pretty much all day.  It's a sad habit formed from her  living conditions before she came to Many Tears. Pie is a very happy girl with all dogs she live with small and medium. People in her eyes aren't as scary as they were and she comes up for fuss and treats now. If you have a quiet home and a space for a fluffy friend please apply.

Hello my name is Mince Pie but I'm known as Pie and I am still waiting for my forever home. I am a very energetic little lady and I love going out for walks down to the local park because I can run around with my little friends and smell all the new smells. When I'm not out on a walk I love to play with my doggy friends out in the garden. I hope someone adopts me soon. thank you for reading.

Mince pie aka pie or pieface is funny beautiful and a total sweetheart, her nature is so kind and a bit ditzy mad roled into one amazing dog as a only dog it won't work she has made a best friend in Monday aka molly the poodle so as there fosterer I have decided they have to go together I have tried to separate them and they pine so bad for each other it's not far to split them. Pie has a collapsed nostril and a fast home might be too much although she loves children and other dogs, if you have space and time for Pie and Molly please apply there amazing together x
Love Pie

Well what can I say? Pie is still with me all that's wrong with her is she has a collapsed nostril... she is perfect to me such a funny character! She has to got to be rehomed with her side kick Monday aka Molly  and together they don't need a resident dog just each other. You name it, she and Molly can do it. Please don't be shy give if you know after anyone who is after a pair of beauties look no further than these beautiful girls

Hi Mince Pie aka Pie here.  Today the same as every day - I got muddy with my bestie Monday aka Molly in the garden.  One minute sunny, next rainy equalling a mud bath! Molly likes them but I don't I like to be mucky not clean thanks . Please adopt me and Molly together it's what we want forever together we don't mind being left in the house together while you're out at all but we are home dogs we like to stay at home and have access to the garden all day.

Pie has been with me a year waiting for a home with her best friend Monday aka Molly.  Pie can only play for a certain amount of time before she passes out because of lack of air intake but Molly plays till Pie has had enough then stops her playing she knows her very well so that's why they must go together. As you can see Pie has beautiful long hair that is thick.  It grows quickly so it's just a groom for her till her next shave day. Pie and Molly don't need a resident dog in their new home as they have each other. Pie's favourite place is in the garden so they need someone who is home most of the time so they can both be outside a lot.

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. 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.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

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