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.

7-12-18  Stephy is a very beautiful but extremely nervous girl who tries very hard to get away from you when approached.  Stephy has never lived in a home so will need at least one other dog (who must be larger than her and preferably male) to help her settle.  She will watch and copy what they do which will help her with house training and lead walking etc.  As she is so nervous she will need a calm and very gently home who have all the time in the world to help her and who really understand house training and lead walking may time her time to learn.  If you have an abundance of time and patience and can offer Stephy the home she needs please complete her application form.

07-01-19 UPDATE

Stephy has been with us a few weeks now and we have learnt a little about her.  She is still nervous with people but will let me pick her up without running away, and is very happy to be carried around.
I thought we had better do something about her not being able to walk on a lead and I fitted her with a harness. Stephy was not too happy about this and did not want to walk, especially as she was happy to be carried! However, today is Day 3 of harness training and she finally got it and now walks back and forth to the sandschool.
Stephy is a lovely happy girl but we have learnt not to kennel her with small dogs or dogs of her own size and she can only be rehomed with a larger dog. She is currently kennelled with a male collie and they get on fine and share the same bed.

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.
