23-09-17 Imagine is a 3  yr old exbreeding Bichon. She is an extremely nervous girl, who isn't used to the big wide world and is very jumpy about everything. This girl truly hates being handled - she is sensitive and has no idea why she is being touched as it isn't something she has encountered before. We can't explain to her that our hands mean kindness and the more we do with her the better she will be.  She will need another dog to live with to give her some much needed confidence and show her new skills such as housetraining and walking on a lead. This beautiful little girl will need a calm home with understanding people who can help her become a much loved part of  the family.

immy is a gorgeous but very scared little girl who still finds us humans very scary. She has a beautiful soft wavy coat (like the perm we would all like to have had).  In the safety of her crate she will take tasty treats from you, but not when she is in the lounge or garden.
When on the settee she will occasionally let you sit near her and give her a cuddle, which she seems to enjoy. She is often curled up with Dolly my other foster Bichon, or one of the other dogs, so she needs to be in a home with other dogs to help her learn. She runs around the garden and plays with the other dogs very happily, but still runs away from humans, so she still has a long way to go to become a happy family pet. All she needs is more time and lots of love and she will become someones special little darling.

Immie is a happy energetic little girl who is still a little shy when you approach her. She loves going for walks, doesn't show any interest in the horses and races across the fields with her best friend Tammy Spaniel, she does love bigger dogs, I think they make her feel safe. She jumps happily in and out of the car, and loves travelling. In her forever home she would like another (bigger) dog to cuddle up to, and lots of treats and a sofa or comfy dog bed to stretch out on. She walks nicely on the lead, and will stay with the other dogs when out walking.

Immie has been waiting a long time for someone to pick her.  She has buddied up with my Cocker girl and  spends most of her time mooching in the fields with her.  She also stays quite close to me around the fields and she will come up and take treats from your hand. I have started taking Immie out on her own to the pub to widen her horizons.  She walks happily on the lead, but can be jumpy and nervous if it is busy. She is enjoying getting treats at the pub, and is starting to relax a bit more. She loves to run, roll and bounce around so would love a home where she can do all these things once she has settled into her new life.

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.
