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.

15-10-2018 Birtha is friendly placed lady who has come to us from a breeder.  She is very close to Bella  and we are looking for a home for them together.  They would not need another dog in the home if this were the case as Birtha is quite confident and if they are lucky enough to go to a foster home their fosterer will start them with house training and lead walking etc.   Birtha is going to love being someone's special girl and learning about soft beds, kind hands and loving hearts along with regular meals and lovely walks once she know how to walk on a lead.  If you would llke to be the one to offer these to her for the fist time in her life please apply.  Birtha would love you to pick her.

Birtha has come out of her shell a lot since coming to the rescue.  She now comes up for a fuss and really loves attention.
Today she went out on a harness for the first time and absolutely loved it, she was running through the grass looking really happy enjoying every second.
Birtha came to us with Bella, they are very close and can be homed together in the right circumstances and with a resident dog. She is such a beautiful girl I know she will bring joy to your home.

In the time Birtha has been here she has grown so much.  she always runs up to me for a fuss and will stay there for ages. She loves getting attention, enjoys her treats and is currently doing great with her harness training.
Birtha has a best friend here called Bella who she is helping along with her confidence and harness training, in the right home these two lovely girls could go together. She is such a happy sweet girl I don't know why she hasn't found her forever home yet. If your looking for a girl like Birtha then come and meet her I know she will find a place in your heart and will fill your home with so much love.

Birtha has been in foster with us for one week.  From the start she has just been this tail wagging, smiley, friendly gentle lump. She just adores both human and dog companionship. She has just seamlessly settled into the household as if she has always been here!
Her toilet training is very good and we are already doing very well with the lead training.  She just seems unfazed by anything and takes it all in her stride.
She sleeps all night by the aga happily cuddled up with her beloved Bella.  She does look to Bella so would want them to be re-homed together.  Whoever has this easy pair will be a very lucky person.

What a pleasure it is to look after these girls. This week we travelled to Cornwall which is a big ask for these dogs but I felt that they were able and confident enough to do it. Alongside our dogs they calmly travelled the five hour journey both there and back, not a peep, they just lay down and calmly snoozed both journeys away.
Having now spent time with Bella and Birtha in different environments we can definitely say for sure that these girls are not for stomping miles across muddy fields. They do love going for a walk but prefer the more Café culture side of life. So a stroll around the village for a sniff or a walk on the beach followed by a rest in a coffee shop or a kiss and a cuddle by any admiring fans in the local brewery is more their style..and then home please for a well deserved snooze on that newly discovered favourite place .... THE SOFA ....(oh yes!! ...trying to get these two of it for their final nightly wee is fun.)
They are both most gentle and loving dogs but Bella is the nervous one of the pair. With time and patience I can only see this improving as she looks to her more confident sister Birtha as a role model.

Well it’s been another busy week for Bella and Birtha. We’ve visited the vets for some flea/worm treatment and they very kindly showed the vet their lovely white teeth and glossy coat but yes they could do with loosing a few pounds ...which we are working on. 
We went on a group walk which our local dog trainer runs once a month. Got very muddy and dirty and met lots of big and small canine friends.....followed promptly by their first bath in foster which I wouldn’t say they was impressed with however they enjoyed the towelling off after and Bertha even let me hair dryer her....because she is a super model you know! 
We've been to the beach for a nice long walk and then popped in and of the shops for a bit of retail therapy. It’s been a fun week but by far the best thing that’s happened this week is that Bellas tail has gone from straight to doggie language this means I’m not so scared of the big wide world now ...yay She is still the nervous one of the pair and does hold back and assess the situation first but is now a long long way from being the dog too scared to walk through a doorway.
Bella and Bertha walk beautifully on the lead, are dog friendly, happy to travel in the car, 99.9 per cent toilet trained. They are an absolutely lovely pair who dote on each other and therefore need to be re-homed together. Whoever has these girls is going to be a very lucky person.

Bella and Bertha continue to do very well in foster and every week I see more of their cheeky characters emerging. They walk beautifully on the lead, travel very well in the car, dog friendly and are now beginning to understand when they need to go out for the toilet. I've been attempting to get some action shots of the girls this week ...ahem...ah well maybe next time ...they do like a snooze! But don’t be fooled by these pictures they can have a mad five minutes where they chase each other and for chunky dogs they are surprisingly fast and can easily jump onto the garden chairs. Bella and Bertha really do love each other and would need to be re-homed as a pair.

 Bertha continues to do well with her toilet training and is 99.9 per cent clean with the occasional overnight accident. She sleeps all night happily cuddled with her sister Bella. 
Bertha is an absolute dream to walk. She does enjoy her daily walk and just wants to be with you. She is happy for dogs to say hello even the more boisterous ones. 
We do not have cats but if we are out and one appears she is interested and if they run she does get excited and want to I would suggest therefore that she cannot be re-homed with a resident cat.
She does take notice of cars if they are going fast or noisy but does not seem bothered by them. She travels well in the car with no issues. Bertha is just an absolute cuddle monster who just wants to be with us humans. She is a lovely, funny and friendly girl who just loves everyone and everything. She adores her sister Bella so will need to be re-homed together.

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.
