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.

16-5-18 Brandy is a female ex-breeding Shih Tzu who is looking for her forever home. She has a sore Teye that our vet will need to look at. Brandy is very nervous at the moment to find herself with us, so will need a quiet home. Brandy has never lived in a home before, and will need another dog to live with as she is so scared. Brandy is a gorgeous little girl, that is now ready for comfy bed to call her own. With some time, patience and gentle encouragement she will love her new life.

Unfortunately poor little Brandy had to have her poorly eye removed but she manages very well and has good sight in her remaining eye.
On arriving in foster Brandy was very nervous, We had to round her up to get her to come into the house on an evening but just left the doors open during the day so she could watch the other dogs coming in and out which she learnt from and will now come into the lounge from the garden on her own accord. She is doing very well and has started to play with a ball which she loves bouncing around and will chase the ball when we throw it for her. She still is hand shy but this is improving and she will come for treats and a chin rub.
On an evening we lift Brandy on the sofa with the other dogs where she happily dozes and once on the sofa she is happy to receive strokes. We will be starting lead walking soon which I'm sure she will enjoy once she gets the hang of it. Brandy sleeps quietly through the night. If you can offer Brandy time and patience to help her gain confidence please apply.

Hey look at me I've started to walk on a lead with my friends.  It's been so warm we went down to the sea and I've even managed a little paddle in the pools on the beach to keep cool. I have met other dogs out on my walks which was good fun as I had a quick sniff then walked off wagging my tail. I still get nervous on walks but I am getting braver every time I go out.
I love playing ball in the garden and make my foster family laugh because I throw it and chase after it myself.  I love the garden and I am very good as I go to the toilet out there. I do still get nervous but I am getting braver every day I even jump up on the sofa with the other dogs next to my foster mum for a cuddle.
At the end of the day I get tired so when I go to bed I sleep quietly through the night. I would like my forever home soon where someone is around a lot of the time for me and a little playmate would be great.

Brandy is doing really well in foster and is much more confident in the home and out on walks. She loves snoozing on the sofa with the other dogs on an evening. Brandy will come for a fuss now and is often first in the queue if you have treats. Please don't be put off with her only having one eye it really doesn't bother her at  all .  Brandy is a lovely girl who would love to find her forever home with someone who is around alot of the time for her.

She is very happy around us now and loves her strokes she even will have a little play with us. What are you waiting for just fill in the application to speak further about Brandy.

Brandy is loving her new life, she is confident enough to go off lead on the beach and has found a new game of chasing the birds off the beach.
Brandy can be a little protective of her things like food and will do a woof if other dogs approach while she is eating and again with some toys but this isn't so much of an issue as we are able to feed all our dogs together but we do supervise as Brandy can pinch other dogs food, we can handfeed treats to all the dogs together (6 dogs) without issue. 
When out walking Brandy is happy to approach other dogs. This little girl has been in foster for a while now and would love her own forever family so she can settle down forever.

Brandy continues to enjoy her home comforts in her foster home, she now actively seeks out strokes and tummy rubs. Brandy likes to be brushed and she is also ok with the hairdryer on her after a bath. Brandy sleeps well through the night sleeping on the sofa with some of the other dogs. Brandy loves her food and enjoys trying new treats in fact she rarely turns anything down. Brandy is a lovely little girl and is an easy foster dog to look after, she really does need to find her loving forever home, if you can offer her this please apply.



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.
