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.

08-11-2018 Although Perry looks very much like a poodle he is in fact a cockapoo who has come to us from a breeder. He has a good temperment although is a little shell shocked to find himself in these new surrounding.  Perrty has a cauliflower ear probably from untreated ear infections in the past but  there is nothing can be done for this now and it does not affect him.  Perry is good with other dogs but not sure about people just yet so his new owners will need  time and patience to work with him on his fears and gain his trust so he can learn to accept and enjoy being loved by people.  He is a handsome and kind boy who with the right time and tlc will come round to enjoy the life he deserves. Perry would love a canine companion in his new home who he can copy and who will guide him with settling in and any future training he will need.

05-05-19 UPDATE

Perry has been living in a foster home for a few months now, where he is learning that people can be kind and that toys are fun. 
He has filled out to a solid 7.5kgs and is about 14” high at the shoulder, and overall he looks like a leggy miniature poodle. 
Perry is a gorgeously fluffy, gently playful and very loving little boy, however he is still looking for his special forever home, as unfortunately, Perry’s sad start in life has left him very poorly socialised and with a lot of fears.  Perry’s way of coping with any sights or sounds that he finds scary at first is to bark at them, which has made him quite a noisy little dog in the house and garden until he has got used to things like the sound of birds, or his reflection in the mirror.  Perry has clearly never learnt how to interact with other dogs - he is very frightened of most dogs that he sees, and he reacts by barking and lunging at them. 
Perry loves his food, and so he is responding to treat-training in order to distract him from barking at other dogs, but currently he prefers to be walked in quiet areas where he is not going to be overwhelmed by his fears.  Although Perry is living in foster with both male and female dogs of all different sizes that he has learnt to trust, we feel that he would be happiest living with a small female dog, or we would even consider him being an only dog in the right circumstances. 
Whoever adopts him will need to be able to offer him a lot of time and patience.  Perry travels well in the car, sleeps soundly all night in the bedroom, and is living with a dog-savvy cat.


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.
