04-10-18 Jasmine is a 6 yr old exbreeding Shih Tzu. She is a  sweet girl who has a waggy girl and will approach you with caution but is not sed to being picked up and being cuddled yet. She will need some practice with this but if she is given some time she will relax and start to enjoy a fiss. Jasmine has never learnt to walk on a lead and doesn't understand about training yet but if she has a kind resident dog to copy, follow and be her friend then she will soon start to enjoy her wonderful new world.

Jasmine arrived with us on Sunday, and is a sweet undemanding house guest. At first if we looked directly at her or moved near her she would start to shake, however this sweetheart so wants to be friends and trust people.
Jasmine will now follow me around a little with a waggy tail and has learnt that the kitchen is the place to be! She will take treats from my hand (although her foster Daddy has to drop them near her as she is too worried to take them directly from him). Jasmine is easy to handle, but she will cower when we go to pick her up because she isn't sure of our intentions yet. She was good to bathed and to have her fur trimmed around her eyes. She accepts a stroke and will now give a little lick to your hand.
Jasmine is in foster with another dog of a similar size and larger ones, although she isn't yet interacting with them much, she is more confident when they are around. She will need a kind, non boisterous friend in her new home of a similar size to herself as she follows our puggle more then the others but she would easily be pushed off her food and bullied.
Jasmine sleeps quietly in her crate all night in the same area as our own dogs, she has not had a single accident in the house as she is regularly given access to the garden. Today she went for her first lead walk in a quiet field and did so well, a few stop starts but her little tail came up and she really started to enjoy herself!
Jasmine is essentially a sweet soul, beautiful inside and out, it is a privilege for us to look after her and help her realise that life is going to be great from here on in. Jasmine is cat friendly.

Jasmine is continuing to settle in well and when it is just me, her foster Mum at home she is a waggy little thing. She is still wary about her foster Dad and chooses to stay in another room away from him in the evenings.
This week a mobile groomer came to tidy Jasmines hair and make her look more like the princess she is, although a little worried she was as good as gold whilst it was being done.
Jasmine loves her walks over the field, tail up and wagging and she will actually skip along quite happily and forget her worries, she has also started to play with our puggle and will pinch little things or pick up toys when she thinks i'm not looking.
Jasmine continues to be clean in the house, and no trouble at all to look after. She is still shy, but her happy nature is coming through more and more. She is now brave enough to eat her food in view, come for a fuss when I get home and does a happy dance when meals are being prepared as she is such a foodie!
Given time, love and treats Jasmine is going to be a happy, cheeky superstar!

Hi Everyone
I have been in my foster home a few weeks now, and my Foster Mummy is so pleased to have me as a house guest. I sleep quietly all night in my little den, im clean and dry in the house as long as im popped out regularly, I love my little walks over the field and my favourite hobby is napping!
I get on really well with my foster sisters, although I dont snuggle up with them, I do tend to still look to see what they are are up to so I would like a doggy sibling in my forever home.
I now start to do a little dance when I see my harness coming out as I know it means im going out and im getting braver in the car.
I am still a little shy, and retreat when there are visitors in the house but I will now take treats from my Foster Daddys hand, and I don't mind him feeding me and i'll even trot along beside him on a walk (although I prefer my foster Mummy to have hold of my lead)
I am so good to have my little face wiped twice a day and my ears cleaned, I have had another bath and my skin is now looking like it should and my coat is all soft and fluffy.
My perfect home would be somewhere where someone is around most of the day (I am used to being left for up to 2 hours).  I would find little children who want to stroke me too much, so any children need to be kind and calm. I happily live alongside a cat here, and pay no attention to her apart from sniffing her in the mornings when I haven't seen her for awhile.
Hope to find my family soon

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.
