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.

15-12-17 Caraway is a very pretty long-legged  5 year old ex-breeding Jug.   She is very scared and didn't want to be picked up but calmed down once in your arms but still very shaky.  Caraway is going to need a calm and gentle home who understand her fears and who have at least one other dog to help her adjust to this new life and learn that hands can be kind and nothing to fear.  She will need to learn about house training and lead walking but these will take time for her to learn.  If you have the time, love and patience to help Caraway settle into her new life she will repay you tenfold.

Caraway is a friendly, happy dog who has been good at meeting all the dogs here. She is submissive and a little wary at first meeting but she does like other dogs and wants to be in the middle of everything. She is very close to my other foster Pug cross, Gully, and she also likes playing with my two female resident dogs and is confident around my large male dog and will place her front paws on his back in a very endearing manner so that she can look bigger and get our attention more easily.  
Caraway was initially nervous when meeting us but wanted to approach and kept coming back to us and soon enjoyed a fuss and being stroked. She now  adores cuddles and is very happy to greet us and be fussed. She asks to be picked up and loves to sit on the sofa with us as she is fascinated by the TV. She thrives on attention and likes to give little kisses. She can still be a little nervous at meeting a new person but soon overcomes her fear as she loves attention. She adores my teenage daughter but she has not met little children yet. I think she would find  a home with young active children too much at the moment but would love a home with  calm, patient people who have lots of time for her, as she does love attention.
We have gained her trust enough to be able to put a harness and lead on her but Caraway is still learning to walk on a lead as she has a tendency to panic at unfamiliar sights and sounds in the outside world, so we are taking it slowly with her to build her confidence. I am worried at this stage that if she was frightened and managed to get free she would bolt, so we are working on building up her trust in us and her confidence in general. She is a cheeky, confident little girl in the house and garden but finds the outside world very scary at the moment and she shook with fear and refused to move when we tried to walk her the first time.  She has improved marvellously already and we have progressed to walking round the front garden and sitting calmly watching the world and people go by.  Caraway has been loathe to venture outside in the recent bad weather, even into the garden although all the other dogs are out there. She will refuse to go out and if we take her outside she immediately runs back into the warmth of the house.
Caraway sleeps quietly through the night in my bedroom and can be left with my other dogs for company when we have to go out. Caraway does not like to be shut in a crate and as she has not caused any damage she has been left with the freedom of the downstairs and has been well behaved. Her house training is nearly there as she is clean overnight and she will toilet outside but Caraway does not like going outside in the wet and windy weather and does not like her paws in the mud in the garden, so if we don't watch her, she will try to run back inside to toilet. 
Caraway is a delightful, funny, affectionate little girl who would love to be in her forever home with a loving,  patient, family. She will need a home with another friendly resident dog for company and to give her confidence.

Caraway is still waiting patiently for her forever home. In the meantime she is enjoying life with her fosterer, loving free time on the local beach and learning more and more about love everyday.

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.
