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.

23-10-18 Fergie is a 6 year old female, ex breeding Poodle who has come to us to find her forever home. Fergie is a sweet girl, but is very nervous so she will need a kind resident dog to live with. Fergie has never lived in a home before, and is not house trained or walking on a lead. Fergie needs a forever home to call her own, can that be you?

Fergie Is a very sweet and timid little girl. She's happy in kennels with her friends and has a waggy tail. She will let me approach her and is happy for fuss from me.
Fergie does not walk on the lead  so today we did some harness training. We went out for a short walk and although she was a bit nervous she did manage to walk a little bit. This will take time and patience but she will get there.  Fergie will need a quiet home with another confident dog so she can learn all about being a loved pet.

Fergie is a sweet funny little girl.  She has been bathed, clipped and brushed, and has coped with all of this with no problem (her coat does need more attention).  She's almost clean in the house, but needs to be reminded to go out during the day, however she's clean at night and sleeps in a large playpen with 3 other foster dogs. She's friendly although still nervous of your intentions, but if you pick her up to give her a cuddle she will go to sleep in your arms (she also likes her tummy tickled!). She loves her food, treats and toys and is a sneaky little thief who will pinch anything you leave on the floor, on a chair etc. Fergie also likes to spend time studying you - she will just sit and stare and watch you - bit weird to start with but very endearing as though she is taking everything in.

Fergie is progressing well. She walks on a lead and is gradually getting braver. She's a very timid little girl and tends to panic (I walk her on a harness/lead and slip lead) , but has met both large and small dogs on our walks with no problem.
I'm trying to build her confidence so that she doesn't worry so much. She would make a wonderful companion dog for someone as she loves to be with you and enjoys a cuddle, but is not overly demanding and is just happy to have your company.
She can often be found laying on her back in the playpen, legs in the air, wrecking the carefully made bed, under a big pile of dog toys which she takes one at a time from the box, or with coats, cardigans, tea towels etc - whatever she can lay her sneaky paws on. She's usually quiet, but every now and again has a burst of energy when she runs round over the moon about something (not quite sure what!)
. She loves her food, treats and toys. Please give her a chance - she's a sweet dog who needs to shine.

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.
