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.

19-10-18 Stella has come into us as an ex breeding girl. She is nervous and timid around people, she hasn't had much interaction with people up till now so she will need a loving family who have time to work with her to overcome any fears she has.  Stella would benefit from having another dog in her new home who she can copy and learn from as she has never lived in a house this will all be new to her so she is going to need guidance from her new canine companion to learn housetraining,help her settle in well and enjoy being part of a family.

Stella has come on leaps and bounds since her arrival, and has really started to come out of her shell. She will now happily approach me - her kennel mummy and ask for fuss by quietly and calmly walking over to me and just standing in front of me! She is very polite which makes her even more cute! She might even climb my lap if I'm lucky!
Stella loves a gentle facial massage! She is a calm, gentle, kind, quiet little girl who can be encouraged to be a little more lively by her very lively kennel friend Seren. She spends her days wearing her pink jumper, sitting in her basket, cuddled up to her kennel friends to keep warm, watching the goings on of the centre from there.
At playtime she will dart out of her kennel and run around the sandschool really quickly before stopping and having a good nose about. As you can see from the photos, Stella has had a good haircut and groom and is looking and feeling so good!
Now that she is much more comfortable with human contact, she is more than ready to start her harness and lead training and will be starting to learn how to walk in the big wide world this week coming. Stella gets on well with her friend Seren who she came in with, as well as a male shihtzu called Earnie. Stella is a lovely girl who is progressing very quickly here at many Tears. She will be so amazed by what life is actually be like for a doggy like herself, so hopefully she won't have to wait too much longer before she finds herself in a home, whether that be in foster or her forever home!

Stella has settled into foster really well. In fact, Stella has settled in so well she thinks she is in charge. Stella love strokes and wants hugs all the time. This can be a bit  time consuming and I can only imagine that now she is in a nice warm home she doesnt want anything else. Walkies is very exciting and stella loves going out.
Sudden noises makes her jump but she will get over this in time. Toilet training is going well and she is let outside every couple of hours. She is happy to go outside whatever the weather and needs no persuading. It is best for Stella to eat on her own as she only too willing to give up her meal for others and go without.
Stella has come a long way and loves nothing more than sleeping on a warm lap or sleeping laying on her back with all four legs in the air. Adorable!!! If you have lots of time for lots of cuddles and kisses please consider Stella

Stella is a very pretty little girl who continues to delight us with her affectionate nature and zest for life! She is very needy and will always be the first dog to jump on your lap demanding cuddles!  She even gets jealous if you use your phone whilst she’s on your lap and tries to push it away! 
Stella was initially very possessive of us and growled at the other dogs when they approached the sofa, but this behaviour has been dealt with and is no longer an issue here. However, anyone adopting Stella would need to be confident dealing with this behaviour should it arise in her new home. She is not possessive of food, toys or dog beds.
Stella is fully housetrained and walks beautifully on a lead. She greets all dogs well whilst out on walks.  She is not fazed by heavy traffic or our busy high street. She is a very bright little dog and my son is beginning to teach her tricks which she is quickly picking up.
She gets on with all the other dogs I have here, sleeps quietly at night in a crate and is absolutely fine with all visitors to the house.
Stella will need a kind resident (larger than her) dog to cuddle up to and would suit a household with someone who is at home most of the time who wants a highly affectionate little dog who has so much love to give.

Stella has really turned a big corner in the last couple of weeks and has relaxed so much. She continues to be a very affectionate little dog but is much less demanding now that she feels safe and loved. She responds really well to ‘no’ and ‘stay’ and picks up new instructions so quickly.
She is 100% with toileting, traffic, other dogs and cats and her dominance issues have completely disappeared now that she feels more ‘at home’. She is happy to be left for a few hours (so long as she has another dog with her). She doesn’t chew furniture etc and would be so, so happy if she could curl up on the bottom of your bed with you at night!
Stella deserves her forever home with an owner to love - will you be that person? Stella has been in foster for far too long, put your application in today for this dear little girl and receive a lifetime of love and affection from her in return.

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.
