11-01-18 Yemmy is a 6 year old ex-breeding Westie. This little love arrived here nervous and shy. This is because she has never traveled beyond her breeders before so the world seems huge and daunting to her. If she goes to a foster home this will help her  shed her fears and start to relax and settle into a new life so please read her updates as we are sure she is going to blossom!  Yemmy will need a well adjusted and confident dog in her new home to help her and in time this gentle little lady will discover how wonderful her new life is.

Yemmy is known as Gem here and has been in foster in Helston Cornwall for some time. She arrived in a pitiful state having had a bungled c-section performed on her in her past life before she arrived at Many Tears. This had left her with part of her uterus attached to her bladder, as was found at her spaying, which can’t be removed and means Gem has a degree of wee incontinence when she is resting or asleep. In the daytime she is always clean in the house and she tries hard to keep herself clean. In reality, all this means is that whichever bed Gem sleeps on will need changing daily.
Gem is just lovely! She enjoys having a bath and a cuddle afterwards, to keep her clean and smelling pretty! Gem is very affectionate with her family and any strangers who come and need a hug! She loves our 5 year old granddaughter too!
Gem is a worker! She takes herself off with our Westie or our Retrievers hunting in the barn or under the sheds. She is very enthusiastic and vocal but has never caught anything! Gem is super to take on a walk away from our land; she now is off lead and stays close. She knows her name and her recall is good. She sleeps all night in the living room with our other dogs and is allowed to sleep on the sofa if she wants as I cover it with waterproof backed vetbed which can be easily washed.
Gem is a very special little girl who has had a terrible past but is now enjoying the future with the hope of a home to come where she will receive the understanding she deserves and be allowed to life a life as normal as possible... no nappies, crates or restrictions. She would need at least one other active, confident friend and lots of exercise or stimulation. The pictures show her enjoying the last of the summer sun and the other of her very special inquisitive expression

Yemmy know as Gem here, is a super little dog! She is very happy and greets each new day with enthusiasm!
Gem loves to be ‘doing ‘ either digging or running with the other ‘worker dogs ‘ here. She loves to help me garden but also loves to be close and have lots of hugs! She is delightful and funny and can be bossy ... when the late dogs of ours run out but she doesn’t bark when people come to the door and stays close when on walks off site with me. Gem is off lead with me now and her recall is excellent .  She’s travels quietly in the car and sleeps soundly all night.
Gem is fine with all my dogs and sits very prettily in the queue for biscuits after dinner. She is a clever little girl and knows all the at home routines. Her best friend is our Westie and they tend to go off together on missions around the fields sniffing and digging, although they rarely sleep together.
Gem needs an active home with plenty of exercise and stimulation and the chance of lots of hugs with her people at the end of the day. A home with other like minded Westies would be ideal, where her adopters would understand about her little problem... which really is a minor issue now!  Gem is on the right in the pic . End of a busy day!

Gem is a super little friend of a dog! She is eager to join in with whatever is going on, be it with any of the dogs or people that she loves! She has settled in and knows all the routines and loves to try and sort the other dogs out when she gets excited!
Gem knows her name and has excellent recall down our fields and when out, off lead. She sleeps soundly with my other dogs on her waterproof vetbed on the floor beds or sofa and is clean in the house during the day, only needing a clean top bed after each night .
Gem loves people and our young granddaughter. She greets visitors gently and loves to snuggle up with who ever will have her! She is quiet in the car and stays close when out on a walk but loves to run and play chase with some of our other dogs in our fields.
Giving Gem a bath or trim is easy as she thoroughly enjoys all the individual attention She would love to be someone’s special little Westie, travelling and exploring new places and meeting lots of new friends. She would love to have a few friends in her new home and there be lots of activities going on because she is always busy here doing something.

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 YEMMY 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.
