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.

11-12-2018  Chime has come to us from a breeder.  We are told she is good with cats and she cuddles up with the other dogs in her kennel so she will need another dog or dogs to live with. As she has never lived in a house before this will help her with lead walking and house training as she will watch and copy what they do.  Chime has a Grade 2 Heart Murmur and is not on medication at the moment but it is something that will need to be monitored.  Chime is a typical happy lab and a very bouncy girl so we would not home her with young children who she could accidentally know over.

What a delight to have Chime in foster. She is a happy, positive and outgoing dog, and so friendly! Her tail never stops wagging. We call her Sunny here because she is like a ray of sunshine (and also because she is yellow and a bit round!). She sleeps quietly through the night in her crate, is clean in the house and enjoys her walks. She has also been left for a couple of hours with my other lab and was fine.
Chime has settled very quickly into home life and is very chilled in the house, so I think she will be ok homed with children, especially if they are comfortable around big dogs. Chime looks and behaves a lot younger than her age, she has started playing with toys and loves it! She is such a loving sweet girl that she would suit any home, but what she really needs is a family that would help her stay fit and healthy with careful diet and sensible exercise.

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.
