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.

29-08-2019 Pip (or Pippa to give her her full name) has been returned. When she arrived here she was so keen to be with people that she did not like to share with other dogs but with time and a routine she has realised that actually dogs make great company and they don't have to be competition and she would now like a dog in her new home. If Pip is hungry she will bark and let you know it's dinner time!  She needs a secure garden and would be best walking on a lead at all times as she can be skittish. Pip is said to be house trained and her new person will need to continue her training but whoever adopters her will be incredibly lucky as she is a little darling!

Cute little Pip has spent the last few days settling in to foster with my dogs and cats. She’s doing well. She is still nervous at first touch, but becomes more and more confident every day. Pip is not quite as house trained as we initially thought, so we are working on it. She barks with excitement when she sees me which often turns into zoomies! Our biggest issue so far is crying in the night, which can escalate into barking; cuddles and going out into the garden for a while helps, and I’m hoping she’ll save her business for those times too... but not yet. Pip needs a home with another kind dog to cuddle up with and to help guide her to confidence.

My little Pip Squeek is getting on very well. She's very loyal and sticks right by my heels when we go out for walks, she follows me around the house and is quite food driven. Saying that, she is very respectful of the other dogs food dishes after she has gobbled her own food down.
Pip has finally got the hang of house training and we celebrate every success on the grass! She will certainly need another dog in the family as she follows and learns from my dogs, as well as snuggling in for long snoozes.
Pip can be quite demanding with her excited barking, but who can blame a girl for being happy?? Pip is great with cats, but feels overwhelmed with young children, and tries to hide.
Pip needs someone that will devote themselves to her, the way that she will with her forever family.

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.
