09-11-18 Drummer has come to us as an unsold pup from a breeder.  He is a sweet chap who sadly isn't used to people but we feel he will come round quite quickly in the right home with people who have plenty of time and patience to help him settle in and adjust to his new life.  He will need a canine companion to help and guide him with his housetraining and show him how to be a puppy.

10-01-19 UPDATE

Drummer has had a makeover and what a transformation! The groomer commented on how well he’d behaved and what a pleasure he'd been to groom.
He’s been in foster with me for just four days and is flourishing. Drummer is inquisitive, playful and affectionate, he loves toys and empties the toy box every night! He loves other dogs too and keen to initiate play, so he’s looking for a forever home with a youngish, playful canine companion, who will curl up with him and teach him all that he has missed out on in his puppyhood so far.
He travels well in the car and apart from his first night, has been completely clean in the house. He’s not yet ready to walk on the lead but when he is, I’ve no doubt he’ll relish his walks and exploring the outdoors.
He’s still wary of people, loud noises and sudden movements so would probably not be suitable to be re homed with children. Drummer will need a fairly quiet home with someone who has the time and patience to continue his training and give him the love and affection he deserves.

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.
