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.

16-10-18 Follow is a 2 year old Westie, who has come to us from a breeder. Follow is happy for us to handle her, but is a little nervous. Follow would need another dog to live with, as she has never lived in a home before and will feel braver with another dog around and will be able to copy housetraining. Follow doesn't yet walking on a lead as of yet, but will learn if encouraged. She has lots of hairloss which is probably hormonal and will come right after she is spayed and given a good diet and never underestimate the healing power of love.

Yesterday I have had the pleasure of working with Follow.  She is a very sweet little girl and although a little nervous she does let you pick her up and give her a fuss.
Yesterday was a busy day for her, she went for a groom then out for her first walk on just a lead! She did really well she enjoyed taking in the view, watching people walk by and really enjoyed the smells.
When Follow first came to us she had a lot of hair loss but now it is starting to grow back on her face. She will need a resident dog to help her gain a little more confidence and help her with house training.  She is looking for a home where she will finally be shown all the love she deserves and start living a happy life.

15-12-18 UPDATE
When I first met Follow she was this shy reserved little girl who would come up for a fuss but would basically belly crawl with this tiny little wagging tail between her legs as she was so desperate for love but so unsure what might happen.
Well since she’s been here with us she has really blossomed! I went into her kennel yesterday after not seeing her for a few weeks and she charged over to me was jumping up for a fuss with a huge waggy tail and really loving all the attention, I had to double check it was her as she was so different! She has begun to learn to walk on a lead as you can see from her previous update but she would still like another larger dog for company as she can be shy in new situations and around people she’s not familiar with. But how excited and friendly she was really blew me away! Was not expecting it from this timid little girl I once knew! But still she’s had little to no interest! I can’t understand why - she’s a dream, and she’s tried her very best to find herself a home.
Follow has transformed into this friendly, brave, sweet girl and has made sure she puts herself out there.  She has had numerous baths and even a professional bath and groom from lovely groomers who volunteer their spare time.  She’s even had a professional photo shoot to help her find a home in time for Christmas but still nothing!
Follow and I know her dream home is out there and we are waiting patiently (but don’t leave her waiting too long!). In the meantime while she waits like a perfectly well behaved girl, she has discovered something else brand new which she’s decided she quite likes, toys! I popped in to see her earlier and to get my daily cuddles and when she didn’t come and jump all over me for cuddles and kisses I was surprised, but then I moved to the back of the kennel and there she was wrestling with a ball!
I’ve taken a little video for you all to see and hope it brings a smile to your face as much as it did for me, and hopefully bringing out her playful side will be the thing that finds her a home! Don’t let her wait much longer, she’s running out of ideas!

07-01-19 UPDATE
I can’t understand how Follow is STILL here! She is a dream dog.  Still ever so slightly shy but has come on in leaps and bounds since being here! She can now walk happily and confidently on a lead, even going out for walks with volunteers and the public.
She would like a home with a dog larger than her so she can fully grow in confidence. She’s learnt how fun and exciting toys can be and loves to wrestle with them! She is a sweet, gentle soul when you fuss her and she’s trying very hard to be her bravest, she loves a good bum scratch! She comes right up to you in the yard with a waggy tail to say hello and waits patiently for her cuddle.
I don’t know why she is still here, as you can see from her previous update, she has tried all different kinds of methods to finding a home but still nothing! She is fed up of watching people come and go and leaving her behind. She has seen so many doggy friends been adopted and wonders when it’ll be her turn. She sits and waits patiently watching the world go by, what more does she have to do!
If there are any westie lovers out there please come and meet her, take her for a walk, play with her, give her a cuddle, even if you can’t offer her a home all these things will make her time in kennels that little bit better while she waits for her family, but I can’t promise you won’t fall in love and take her home yourselves!

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.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
