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.

19-9-18 Mac is a 3 year old Collie, who has come to us to find his forever home. Mac walks well on the lead, but is nervous of us at the moment. Mac prefers women to men, so will need kind and gentle owners. Mac will benefit from a Collie experienced home, who can work to gain his confidence and give him an active home. Mac has never lived in a home before, so will not be house trained, and he will need another dog to live with.

I met Mac for the first time today and he came straight over to see me in his kennel along with his friend Cathy. He seems like such a sweet dog! He was a good boy walking to and from the sand school but was a bit timid in the sand school when I was playing with them but with some encouragement was soon joining in and playing with us! He went for a lovely long walk with a lovely gentleman and seemed quite content when he came back. He certainly enjoyed a fuss throughout the day!

Mac was happy and confident today in his kennel and to the sand school, he gets slightly more reserved out in the roads, as he is nervous of cars we went for a walk to the staff car park today, and he didn’t like the door open. So we spent some time and he eventually came and sniffed the seats and the doors. This is something we’re going to work on this week

Mac has come a long way since he first arrived here at the centre and has made great progress. He's still nervous of sudden and loud noise or movements but is a lot more sure of himself. He walks on the lead well and gets on great with all his kennel friends. He will need an active home as he has lots of energy and routinely runs about the play yard! In the right home he will be an amazing member of the family and an amazing friend for life.

Mac is so desperate for his forever home with his forever people. He is very timid and takes a while to trust you but once he does he is so loving. This boy needs to be put of kennels and in a home where he is doted upon.

Mac's a gentle shy soft boy who loves being fussed, he can walk well on a lead although is a little jumpy over noises.  He is an amazing dog for a reasonably quiet home.


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.
