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.

06-10-18 Alani is a 2 year old ex breeding Bichon, who has come to us to find her forever home. Alani is a very nervous but sweet girl. She is shut down, so will need a kind and quiet home. As Alani has never lived in a home before, she will need another dog to live with, as she does not walk on a lead, and will not be house trained.  However if she is lucky enough to go to a foster home this will start once she is there. Alani allows us to handle her and will settle, but this will take time in her new home.

Alani has settled into home life really well . She is a very pretty but nervous girl . She so very much wants to be you're friend but at the moment she is very unsure of my intentions towards her . She loves the company of other dogs and relies on them heavily for guidance and support. Her main problem at the moment is people. She follows me around the house and loves to watch me cooking and pottering about and she will come and sit beside me on the sofa and now likes to share my bed along with my other dogs but she's not keen on being touched and will actively flinch when you attempt to do so, saying that though she will tolerate touch but at the moment dosn't find it enjoyable. Alani will run from me when I go to pick her up but she can be caught eventually and tolerates a cuddle. This I am continuing to work on daily but feel it will take her some time to trust humans again. She has a cheeky side and likes to investigate her surroundings, she loves to run around the garden and have a mad half hour! .Alani has the potential to be a happy confident little girl with the right guidance from her forever family who would need to be home a lot of the time, she would need at least one resident fur buddy and due to her nervous nature no young children to share her home with .

t's hard to believe that little Alani has only been in foster with me for 2 weeks . She has made so much progress in a short space of time . Alani has a cheeky side and loves to investigate everything and steal things to put in her bed . She loves the company of my 4 resident dogs and likes nothing better than snuggling up to them or on them , she has no concept of space .She really is a joy and has no malice in her at all . She is still a runner and very hand shy but is starting to enjoy cuddles and has now had 3 quick baths wich she barely tolerates but she allowed me to do it . She has been wearing a harness indoors from time to time wich she readily accepted. All the signs are there that she wants so much to be someone's special girl, could you be that person that helps her to learn that we humans are not all bad? If so you wont be disappointed , she really is a darling.

Little Alani is progressing slowly but surely . She has had the hair around her eyes trimmed so we can now see her beautiful face. Her confidence is growing daily and she now approaches me along with my other dogs for a treat,  She always does her little Bichon dance when getting a treat , being fed and every morning when I get out of bed. She is starting to enjoy life but she is still unsure of human intentions.
It is still very early days but she is starting to relax into cuddles and allows me to give her a sneaky kiss. Her fur is lovely and soft and fluffy and her overall condition has improved dramatically . All this girl needs is love and cuddles wich she gets in abundance here .
Alani is fully toilet trained here and has only had one accident in the 4 weeks since she arrived. She has a cheeky side to her emerging personality, we have to hide our mobiles and the tv remote from her or she will steal them'  She never damages them just takes them and then tries to hide her contraband in the many dog beds we have here.
This lovely lady isn't you're ready made dog so if you like a bit of a challenge with the promise of a bit of love in return then this is the dog for you . Kindness , understanding and above all patience is the way to this girls heart. She really is an adorable girl.

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.
