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.

07-12-18 - Zinny is a very nervous girl at the moment. She will run away from you but then freeze and allow you to handle her. She does not walk on a lead as he has neevr had the chance to enjoy walks and would need to live with another kind dog to show her the way and assist her with housetraining. When Zinny is with her kennel friends she is very happy and playful, so we really do not think she will take long to start enjoying her new life of freedom and love.

My daughters and I visited the centre today and took, Trinket and Zinny and another kennel mate (sorry totally forgotton her name) out for a walk, and thought her blog might need updating.  Although initially freezing on coming out from the kennel she was the bravest and happiest of the 3 dogs on lead, she checked in occasionally with her kennel mates but was totally happy to lead the way with my daughter up the road although very submissive when first approached she has the sweetest nature and relaxed enough to play with a tuggy toy on the verge up the road.  Trinket really relied on having her other kennel mate close to feel safe but Zinny did not need this.  Really hoping she finds a home soon lovely little dog.

Zinny has been here in her foster home for a few weeks now. She is a gentle. tolerant young lady who is perfectly well behaved with us and the other dogs here, so very polite and kind. She is neither food nor toy aggressive, and is good in every way.  She is a little 'half pint ' siized Labrador weighing only about 15k.l
Zinny is doing very well with her house training, walks brilliantly on the lead, and loves a trip in the car. She runs around in my secure field, so very happy to have freedom and fun. Her recall is spot on.
Zinny sleeps quietly all through the night in a comfy crate in the bedroom. She is so pretty, so unassuming just a complete delight. She is a little timid at times and sometimes shows the overhang from her past life, ducking away if she perceives the possibility of being hit at, or looking worried by a raised voice, bless her heart. She is getting more confident all the time. The video shows her wielding her own 'big stick' and so proud of herself she is.

Zinny is gorgeous.  She is tolerant and so calm for a young girlie.  letting small dogs hand off her neck and bite her legs in play with never a cross word. 
Zinny has a special friend here in her foster home.  His name is Chopper, a sweet and kind Pointer cross who is very similar in size to Zinny (about 15 kg) 
They are both complete darlings and a joy to look after.  In doors they are calm, and when playing, are not at all   rowdy and rough, just funny and entertaining.
Once out in my secure field they are thrilled to run and play chase at high speed, but always careful not to knock into myself or the other dogs.  Their faces are pure joy.
They both have perfect recall, and readily jump back into the car when it's time to go home.
Zinny is still shy at times.  She will need a kind and playful canine friend in her new home to help continue to gain confidence.   It would be so wonderful if she was able to be adopted with her best pal Chopper.  They are so sweet together.


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.
