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.

13-10-2018 Gainer is an ex-breeding labrador.  She doesn't walk on a lead at the moment but we will start this once she has settle in here but her new owners will need to continue with this.  Gainer will approach people for a bit of a fuss but is a little wary at the same time. She is a beautiful girl with lots of potential with the right training, affection and time.  She will need another dog or dogs in her new  home to show her its ok to be loved and guide her with settling into life in a home.  She will need to learn all about house training etc and this will come with time and patience.  Gainer has a passport which will come with her.

Gainer is a wonderfully calm, placid and gentle chocolate lab. Even though she walks lovely on the lead, I feel she would still benefit from being homed with another dog as she is still quite timid. In the right circumstances Gainer might be fine living without another dog but it would have to be a home where someone was with her most of the time. Gainer does like to stop and greet every person when out walking which shows that she isn't scared of people and can live in a home with cats. She is also kenneled with female and male dogs with no issues whatsoever so introductions with other dogs should be no problem. Gainer does still have a saggy belly caused from years of over breeding but in time this will tighten. If you believe in second chances then please give one to this gorgeous lady and in return you will be rewarded with years of loyalty. Thank you. 

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.
