29-08-18  Miley is a 3 year old female Westie, who is looking for her forever home. Miley is a gorgeous girl, and has come to us from a breeder. She has arrived here pregnant and is going to a foster home to have her pups. Miley is waggy when we go into her kennel. She does need a confident boost, and is a little hand shy so she just needs lots of patience and kindness to help her discover herself and start loving life once her puppies have flown the nest..

Miley is now available for adoption having recently had pups in a loving foster home.
There's the possibility that she has westie lung due to crackling in her lungs (more in the right the left) she stretches out and makes funny movements, BUT she's managing extremely well without medication at the moment........ she's very active and very playful, she's like a joyous puppy!!
She is so excited and happy to be alive. Every day is exciting for her and she just loves her cuddles. .....When she came to us her skin was very sore and sensitive, she was really a sad girl all round who obviously felt quite poorly. Since she's had her pups and the pressure has been lifted from her chest/lungs life is a lot easier for her (she was struggling to get from one side of her puppy pen to the other at one point)
.....NOW she gallops around the living room asking us "OK, what game is next?" She's a little white dog who seems determined to roll in everything she possibly can yet her beautiful eyes still ensure that you can't get cross with her. House training is getting there. Miley (known as Smiley Miley!) is a very clean little lady and will tell us when she's been for toilets on her training pad if she's not managed to get outside.
She likes her sleeping area kept fresh and tell us if she thinks her bedding needs cleaning, as you know there's nothing quite like fresh bedding. Miley "may" have underlying health problems but she is absolutely none the wiser and doesn't let it bother her in the slightest and neither should any adopter.

FABULOUS news for this Westie girl is that although when she first came to me she was displaying chest problems when she went to see the vet post pup her lungs were sounding CLEAR!!! She HAD been loaded with medications (antibiotics and tablets to help her breath) and rested and she was in a dreadful state when she came to me to have her pups. Whether it was the strain of the puppies on her lungs or a seriously nasty infection due to the conditions that she had been kept in we will not know. It was grim, BUT it appears to have cleared. whether or not she will be prone to chesty problems in the future I don't know but for now this lil mamma is loving playing ball, running about like a crazy born again pup. And generally loving life. It would be incredible to see her settled into a home before christmas given how far this "hand shy" ex breeder has come. She absolutely LOVES children, adores people and can't get enough of anyone prepared to play ball...... what a little treasure!! Her down side is that she CANNOT be homed with cats

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.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
