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.

19-06-18 Olisa is a 5 year ld exbreeding Shih Tzu. She is a very gentle, submissive girl who would be easily bullied by a dog that is too full on or dominant. She has never seen the world before and is in need of lots of guidance. She will need a very gentle and kind resident dog to be her friend and show her new skills such as housetraining, how to walk on a lead and not worry about the vaccum cleaner. She needs time, gentle hands and kind words but we think she will soon start to enjoy a fuss and will love her new life.

Olisa is a big girl possibly Lhasa size and is a little timid and nervous but incredibly sweet and gentle. She has had a haircut and is rocking a much cooler hairstyle. She wants to eat her food off the floor at the moment but we are showing her how to eat from a plate. She is getting to grips with housetraining and runs out to use the garden with the other dogs. She sleeps all night in a bed in the lounge with the other dogs and we have just started lead training. She needs someone who is home most of the time and older secondary aged children.  She is very submissive and is looking for a forever home with a really kind friendly dog as a companion. She really is a special girl.

Olisa is much more confident now but would still need a companion in her forever home. She is in foster with Bethany (pictured) and could be adopted with her and wouldn’t need a resident dog. She walks on a lead but is very easily spooked and then lays down, but she can walk well. She eats from a dish now with no problems. Olisa sleeps well in a bed with the other dogs all night and likes to run in and out of the garden and sunbathe during the day. House training is a work in progress but she does use the garden most of the time. She is a large Shih tzu and is a special girl who will make a lovely companion. Olisa is staying with another fosterer whilst her currant fosterer is on holiday.

Olisa is much more confident and happy now. She eats and sleeps really well. She is playful and likes to play with toys and with Helen (another larger Shih Tzu) who has just arrived. She walks well on a lead but will lie down if she gets spooked and likes to walk with her special person and will cry if they aren’t holding the lead. She does use the garden to toilet with all the other dogs and needs to go out regularly but she will still have accidents as this is the first time she has ever experienced life in a home. She gets very excited at tea time and loves treats. Olisa needs a similar playful companion in her new home or she could be adopted with Helen and then they wouldn’t need a resident dog. She would love her owner to be home most of the time.  Olisa is waiting patiently for her special person to love.

30-11-18 UPDATE

Olisa has been in foster for 5 months. She hasn’t had any interest which is sad. She has a few issues but don’t we all! She bonds with one person and only really wants that one person to walk her. She will try to hide or cry and struggle to get back home otherwise. Her housetraining is still a work in progress and we are using a strict routine and puppy pads. She is very playful and loves toys and loves nothing more than snuggling up beside you on the sofa, head on lap. Olisa needs a really playful, friendly companion and an owner home most of the time.  She could be rehomed with Helen a similar size Shih Tzu who she is in foster with as they are very friendly and she wouldn’t need a resident dog if this was the case. I know puppy’s are lovely but Olisa is stunning with classic good looks and well at least you know how big she will be! Let’s get Olisa her forever home this Christmas.

28-12-18 UPDATE

This is Olisa and Helen’s first Christmas in a home - BUT it’s only a foster home. Last year they spent it cold and Lonely in the place they had been born. But this year they have arrived at Many Tears Animal Rescue and it’s a fresh start. They have marvelled at the tree and watched and sometimes helped with wrapping presents! They have been groomed and are excited because they sense it’s a happy and special time. Tonight they have hung their stockings up and made a
Special wish to Santa to find them their very own forever home. Olisa is 5 and Helen is 3 and they are in foster in Portsmouth. If you think you are the one to grant them their Christmas wish please checkout their profile on the Many Tears website. They wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

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.
