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.

03-03-2017 Pringle is a 4 year old female Labrador who has been given to us by her breeder to find a forever home. She is a very scared girl who is not used to people and has gone straight into foster where she will be gently introduced to human kindness. She is so frightened at the moment that she may nip in fear. She is much happier in the company of other dogs and will need a canine companion in her new home to help her get used to the sights and sounds of everyday life and give her some much needed confidence. She will have never lived in a home before and will need help with housetraining and this will be easier if she can follow the example of a resident dog. At the moment Pringle is too scared to walk on a lead but as she starts to settle we will gently introduce this to her. She will thrive in a quiet home without young children and with a patient owner who would like to give her lots of love and patience to help her become a more confident girl. If you can offer Pringle the home that she really deserves then please apply as soon as possible and help her to take the next step into a better life.

Pringle has settled into home life very well. She is 95% clean in the house, follows me every where. Pringle is very underweight and scared of humans. She now trust me enough to take a treat, but will not let me touch her, putting a lead on her at the moment is not possible, as she will snap out of fear, this is why at this moment in time she is not available for adoption. Its very sad seeing a lab like this, but we will get there.

Pringle has made steady progress with her fosterer. She is still not walking on a lead but will now allow a harness and lead to be put on and she will jump into a vehicle with other dogs. She is so pleased to see her fosterer in the mornings that she nips with excitement but accepts treats gently and in true lab form she loves the paddling pool! We do believe she will go backwards a bit when adopted which is perfectly normal but may mean that she could snap in fear and her new owners will need to be experienced and ready to support her through this. She will need a home without children where she can go forwards and continue to make positive progress.

Pringle is continuing to make progress, but she is still a nervous girl round humans and does need an experience home , with dog/s her size. When the weather is warm she loves nothing better than standing in the paddling pool to cool off. She follows me everywhere but still doesn't really like a fuss being made of her. She has put on some much needed weight and is looking very good now. All she needs now is that special someone to carry on building her trust.

Although Pringle is good with all size dogs, a home with one her own size would be better , as she follows my big dogs more than my small , so will learn and settle better with her own size.
We are trying to get Pringle to walk on a lead , she is still very scared of this , so plan to just walk her out the front door and back till she feels more confident, then to try her out on a walk with the other dogs. Pringle needs a very experience home that can help and manage her fears of the big world.

After months of trying and Pringle digging her heels and refusing to walk, she finally did it  and really enjoyed it. We did go somewhere very quite, with very little chance of meeting anyone. Pringle does still need an experienced home as she still is nervous of humans but has come a long way . Please don't apply for her before Christmas if you are having a busy one.  This girl really wouldn't cope with that.

Pringle loves playing in the snow. She has come such a long way. Would be lovely if she could find her dream home , to start the new year.

20-01-18 UPDATE

Pringle has come a long way , from them first few months of being in foster, she is still a nervous girl and needs an experienced home , but over the last couple of weeks we have taken her out of her comfort zone, to see how she would cope going to a new home , and I very happy to say she did amazingly well. I took her visit a friend , who has 2  labs , we went for walks round there field , then into the house . Pringle was a little worried at first but soon settled next to me on the sofa, the next time we went over we stayed for dinner and Pringle joined the other dogs and happily ate with them. So we know she will be fine moving to a new home , just have to find the right one.

Well Pringle is really starting to enjoy her walks , and after a lovely walk , she likes nothing better them spreading out on the sofa, and yes she does snore.

27-02-18 UPDATE

Pringle is doing very well , even though she still has her moments of mistrust. She loves her walks and loved the snow. She has even stopped barking at my son every time he walked in the room.

04-04-18 UPDATE

This weekend we took Pringle on a 5 mile hike, there was narrow path , wooden steps, she did really well. We had people on bikes go past and met a couple with their dog. Pringle coped well with all of it. She walked with my son, even giving his fingers a lick. Up until now she has always barked at him and kept her distance. Another big step for this scared girl.

31-05-18 UPDATE

Pringle has come such a long since arriving a year ago. Yes she still has nervous moments, but she now loves her walks and like a lot of labs and loves getting into the water. She still needs an experienced home, that is calm and able to help her to continue to progress.

15-07-18 UPDATE
in the last couple of weeks Pringle has become very affectionate.  When I come down in the morning she bounces round me and if I ignore her she nudges me to make a fuss of her!  She is coming to me for a fuss and really loving cuddles. This has been a big step for her and it seems she is finally trusting a human. I would love to see her find her own home, where she can learn to trust other people.  This may take a while but oh my when she does the rewards are just fabulous. You will need a box of tissues.

01-10-18 UPDATE

A couple of weeks ago , I took Pringle to the Many Tears dog show.  She did very well with so many people round and meet other dogs nicely.  She even let a few humans touch her but did bark a warning to a couple of men. I was very proud of her.

Pringle is a true lab and loves a paddle, the more mud the better. She loves her walks and the quiet life. Her home needs to be adult only and they need to be around as much as possible in the first few months, as she takes time to trust them, but when she does she will love you forever.


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.

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