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.

29-11-2018 Cookie is a tiny 5 year old Chocolate female ex breeding dacs.  She only weights 3.7kg and we are having to send her to a specialist as she has a problem with her back which is affecting her lega and we think this is due to a slipped spinal disc.  We will update about this as soon as possible. This little lady has a wonderful personality and we will do our very best to  help her.
When Cookie is ready for adoption she will need a nice calm resident dog (preferably another Dacs) to show her the way and an adult only homed . She will need to learn about house training and lead walking but with a little time, love and patience she is going to be a star!

16-12-18 UPDATE
Cookie has had her operation and is doing very well under the care of Hamiltons Referrals.  They have strongly advised us to leave her with them for the time being as she is getting regular rehabilitation and it is in her best interests to continue this with them until she walking again. She seems to be improving every day and Hamilitons have very kindly waiving the cost of her aftercare which we are extremely grateful for. We do need to continue raising funds to cover the cost of her operation and we extend our thanks and gratitude to everyone who has helped us with this so far.

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.
