23-10-18 Sassie is a 2 year old female Collie who is now looking for her forever home. She has come to us from a breeder is a very shut down girl who has never lived in a home so she will need another dog or dogs to live with. Sassie is learning to walk on a harness, but this will take time. She is worried about eating around other dogs and people so we feed her separately in the back of the kennel and she is happy with this arrangement and is now eating.  This is something her new owners may need to continue with but she might change as she becomes more confident.  We are looking for a collie experience adult only home for Sassie  As she is a Collie, she will need an active home where she will get both her body and brain exercised.

Sassie has come such a long way in the short time she has been with us. She now walks perfectly on a lead and loves going out for a slow sniff and explore. I had her on a long line and she didn’t wander far at all, preferring to stay close to my side. She did have a moment of madness and galloped through some long wet grass - it was filled with such joy it was so lovely to see.
Working on Sassie’s section for a few days I did not see any food aggression at all, it may be that she is now settled and knows that the food is going to come and she doesn’t have to protect it however it may be nice to feed Sassie separately anyway so they can enjoy their food in peace (I wouldn’t like it!).
Sassie is a very affectionate girl and ‘holds on’ to you with her paws it’s ever so sweet. Sassie will make a wonderful addition to the right home and I’m very excited for her to continue her journey to the good life!

Sassie has come on even further since her last update! She is still a shy nervous girl but once she knows you she is very sweet and loving. Sassie walks perfectly on the lead and always looks up at you for reassurance, she doesn't pull, loves a good sniff around and never goes far from your side. Sassie would best suit an active home with no young children. Sassie responds very well to a 1dog 1person ratio especially while out walking and training. She will also benefit from behavioural and general obedience training. In time I do think sassie would like agility.

This beautiful girl is still looking for here forever home and am not sure why. Sassie can be a little nervous around new people so they need to gain her trust but when she does she is such a sweet girl who loves going for a nice stroll.  She is always looking to see if she's doing well and walks perfect on the lead.
She does love to be put out of kennels and she comes out of her shell.  She's currently kennelled with another collie and beagle and she gets on well with both of them.  Sassie does tend to keep herself to herself but I think it's more as she's happyest with us humans.
She will need a active home as I feel she would love to be out and about exploring She is a clever girl that will learn so much from a home life and instructions from her special human. I also feel she could go as an only dog to the right home with experienced dog owners as she does like to be one on one with you. Please visit her at the centre she'll make the perfect companion for the right family.

Today I got to spend a little time with Sassie the beautiful collie.  Although slightly nervous of me at first that soon changed when I put a harness on her, she just stood by the kennel door ready to go out for a walk. When out she walked great on a harness and was by my side the whole time apart from when there was a loud noise or a sudden movement she did get quite scared and back away but with a little reassurance she carried on with her walk.
She enjoys her treats and will take them gently from your hand not at first but when she is comfortable around you. Today she went on a little car ride which I must say she did very well! At first she jumped out of the car but then settled in the back seat laying down for the journey.
Sassie is looking for a home with at least one other dog to help her along with her house training but most of all her confidence. She hasn't had a great start to life, when she first came to us she was shut down but as the weeks have passed she has started coming out of her shell a little. Sassie just needs someone with the time and patients to show her that life is good and she can put her trust in humans again.

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.
