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.

20-07-18 Talia is a 5 year old, ex breeding Terrier Cross who is now looking for her forever home. Talia is a little nervous, and is a little skitish when around people. Talia will need a quiet, experienced home where her new owners have had ex breeders before. Talia is a gentle soul, with big pretty eyes that you will get lost in! Talia has never lived in a home before, so will not be house trained, and she is not yet walking on a lead. Talia will need another dog to live with to show her these new life skills and lend her some much needed confidence.

If you like a challenge then Talia is your girl! She's very cute and pretty, but don't let that fool you because she's a typical terrier. Things tend to be on her terms and she isn't into cuddles etc., but prefers being out in the garden exploring. You can pick her up and give her a cuddle, but she won't come to you for one.
I have bathed and brushed her with no problem. She's clean overnight, but will use the puppy pads sometimes during the day. She tends to use the puppy pads when I leave her i.e. to go upstairs etc., so I've started putting her in the playpen to try and break the pattern.
I think she would probably be best with a slightly larger male dog (she is very small, about the size of a Yorkie) as she will growl at other females. To date she has only done this as a warning and has not followed through.
She loves her food, but is still a little too nervous to take a treat from your hand. She walks well on a lead and absolutely loves going for walks. She is quite nervous of men, especially if she finds herself in an enclosed situation with them.
If you have time and patience, Talia will love you, but in her own way.

Talia is progressing well.  She's a lot calmer now and is much more at ease as far as men are concerned.  She's always first in the line to have her harness put on in the morning and enjoys a cuddle at the same time.  I'm very proud of her for giving me her trust.
She loves her walks and meets all dogs, large and small, with a friendly waggy greeting.

Talia has totally changed from the dog I originally fostered. She's lost most of her fear of men, enjoys her walks and likes to greet visitors/dogs to the house.
She's an easy little dog to look after - she loves her food/treats, enjoys being in the garden and gets very excited about her walks. She's fine with my other fosters, but likes to spend time on her own, although she can often be found curled up in one of the baskets with another dog.
She's still not a great one for sitting with you, but enjoys a cuddle and stroke.

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.
