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.

12-04-2018 Ember is a very scared little lady. She has come to us from a breeder and her fear means it takes some time and coaxing to get her out into the yard but once out she becomes a little braver.  At the moment Ember doesn't want to be picked up and held.  She panicked and was frantic to get away so we are looking for a home with experience of scared dogs and without children who would simply frighten her at the moment.  Ember will need a lot of love, time patience and definetly at least one other dog to live with.  If you have a place in you home for a dog like Ember please complete her application form or if you are one of our fosterers request her.  She is a lost soul in need of help.

Ember began life at Many Tears absolutely petrified. She was apparently desperate to not be in the arms of fellow staff members when she was being booked in, and in her kennel, she and his best friend Even would hide away in the bedroom part of their kennel, cowering and holding onto each other for their lives. They wouldn't move. It was so sad to see. They were then both put in with some relaxed but confident, outgoing dogs and since then have made slow but steady progress.
Ember will now on occasion approach the front of the kennel to see what's going on. She has started to wag her tail too! She will also slowly and carefully approach people she knows well with a waggy tail and lots of stepping around bless her! It's very sweet to watch. She will gently touching their hand with her nose before backing off... She will accept a brief stroke, but that is all. Fuss is something she's never had much of before and is still not used to or comfortable with. If I do approach her to try and give her a proper fuss, she will bury her head into her feet and shake. It's so sad.
At playtime, Ember doesn't yet have the confidence to run out of her kennel and past the other dogs every time. Sometimes she does, sometimes she doesn't. So I need to carry her outside. She will shake as I approach her, again trying to hide her face in fear of what she thinks I may do to her, and she can't wait to jump out my arms bless her. But once in the corridor, she joins her friends and runs outside.
In the sandschool, she will come running over wagging her tail if I call over to her - copying the other dogs! She seems happy and seems to smile and once again slowly but carefully comes over to say hello and give my hand a brief kiss with ehr nose. She enjoys playing with toys too!
Ember would need to be homed with another more confident resident dog for sure. She still doesn't trust us humans and knows nothing about what it's like to live the life of a normal dog and knows nothing about what it's like to live in a home or what the outside World is like... Ember gets on perfectly with all dogs - large, small, male and female.
We are going to introduce harness and lead walking soon this week.
Amazingly, Ember seems almost 100% kennel clean so long as she is let outside after his food which she loves.
Today another staff member commented saying how well she and his best friend Even are doing, and how far they've come. But there is still a long way to go yet. Ember would really benefit from going into foster. But it would be even better if her forever family found her. I feel she needs to be homed to a family who have had experience with scared dogs, and have plenty of time, patience, understanding and a calm home environment.
Ember is just so incredibly sweet and innocent. The way she approaches smiling and hopeful and the way she side steps is adorable. She is desperate to make friends with us humans but just doesn't quite yet have that extra bit of confidence to take the next step. She really is a darling girl, who deserves so much.

Ember came to me a very scared, very shut down little lady.  She could not be touched without flinching and shaking and really didnt understand what its like to be loved.

However, she has come on leaps and bounds in the last 4 weeks, she is completely dry in the house, she travels brilliantly in her crate in the van and sleeps well overnight either in or out of her crate.

She is loving going out for quiet walks and although still scared when you put her harness on, does get excited when she sees it.  She walks beautifully on lead and I believe that once the bond with her forever human is strong, she will be fine to let off lead as her recall in enclosed fields is great.  Our next goal is to start doing some road walking as Ember has not experienced this yet.  Ember will need a quiet home with another very laid back dog, who can continue to teach her to play and be relaxed around her humans.  She will take time to trust and feel comfortable with human contact, but she does want to move forward and she is starting to believe that human hands are good things.

Ember is really enjoying life, she is such a brave little girl who will now walk through doorways when I'm stood waiting to close the door, she gets very excited for going out for walks and will stand nicely to have her harness put on. Ember loves to come for a fuss - especially in the morning if she sleeps upstairs, although she is still scared of being picked up. Ember is now walking off lead in safe areas with me, so I feel that given time with her forever family, she will be safe to go off lead. She loves to have a little play with the rest of my pack and then snuggle down for the evening and snooze until bed time. Ember will take time. love and patience to connect with you, she is not a ready made family pet, but once she does trust you and build a strong bond with you, you will have the most beautiful, kind little lady who is determined to get over her awful start, be brave and live life to the full.


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 EMBER 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.
