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.

16.09.18 Nora is a very nervous ex-breeding cocker spaniel.  She can be handled and relaxes in you arms but will run away when you try to pick her up.  Nora will need at least one other dog to live with as she seeks comfort and reassurance from them.  She has never lived in a home so this will be new and scary at first.  She has no idea about house training or lead walking and these are things that are going to take her time to learn.  If you have the time, love and patience to offer Nora a home where she can flourish and learn that people can be kind, please complete her application form.

Nora is a girl to pull at your heart strings. She is so fearful of life and needs a very lovely home with people who are going to give her all of he patience and love in the world. She would most certainly need to live with another dog as she takes a lot of comfort from cuddling with her kennel mates. Nora will circle around the play area if a human is in there with her, making sure that your not going to try and bother her, when alone with the other dogs there she will sniff and explore and even relax! Do you have space for a scared beautiful girl in your home to show the good life to?

Nora is such a beautiful girl, her eyes tell her story in a way we could never imagine. Nora has been here quite some time and is still so scared of life. This poor girl still isn’t able to trust humans just yet, but behind the sorrow in her eyes is a huge hearted dog - she’s just the sweetest. Nora is not suited to a kennel environment (not that any dog is) she needs somewhere where she can receive one to one attention as this environment is simply too much for her.
Nora will run away from you any chance she has. I spend some time today sitting in the back of the kennel with her and she happily sniffed my hand but in the big wide world it’s a different story. Nora takes great comfort from her kennel friends being around her, they give her a little confidence so she would need another dog or dogs in her new home so that they could guide her and show her how to live like a happy waggy dog that I know she can be. If you have the time and love to give Nora you’ll have a best friend for life and beyond!

Nora has been in foster a week and has settled in well to home life. Her chosen spot is in the middle of our split stairs - I think this is so she gets a little stroke each time we pass her!
Already she will approach for a little tickle under the chin providing one of the other dogs is there. She also recognises the sound of the lid being removed from the treat tin and joins the rest for a treat which she gently takes.
She is still easily startled by sudden movement or noises but is learning to trust. Nora has waited far too long for a home of her own. She has so much love to give, please give her a chance.

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.
