12-12-18 Thanet is 6 yr old female exbreeding  Bichon Frise.She is a  sweet but nervous dog who has not been handled much but will allow you to pick her up and willsettle  in your arms, accepting being stroked and fussed. In time she will enjoy this and we are sure she will love being spoilt. She will need another dog to cuddle up to, show her about housetraining and a quiet home with a patient person who will give her the time she needs to bloom. She has a passport.

Thanet is a very sweet girl.  she is still nervous and shy but will let you smooth her and she is fine being picked up she settles quite quickly in your arms.
Today I put a harness on her to see how she would be.  She let me put it on her with no problem and didn't mind it being on at all so next we will start trying to walk on a lead.
Thanet is looking for a home that has a resident dog to help her with her walking, house training and confidence. She is also looking for a family that has the time and patients to help her trust people She is such a sweet girl in time and in a loving home I am sure you will see a different side to her.


I think Thanet was glad to get all the matted fur off!  Although she was afraid coming out of the cage, she was a such a good girl-whilst I was blow drying her every now and then I would feel her nose sniff my arm and give me a little lick. She likes to be talked to and her tail was wagging every time I told her what a good girl she was. She also really liked the smell of Lisa’s tuna salad.

Thanet is a very sweet girl. She is a little nervous and won't realy approach me at the moment but I can pick her up and smooth her and she's happy to sit there She loves running in and out of her kennel to the play yard and she seems to enjoy being out having a sniff. She a quiet girl and does spend time in the basket cuddled uo to her friend.  Thanet does not yet walk on the lead so we will practice this.  She will also need house training a as this little lady as not lived in a home. She will need a quiet home with a confident resident dog that she can learn all the doggy stuff from.

May I introduce to you the one and only Thanet! Thanet is a very very sweet little Bichon who has been used all her life and is now in the safety of Many Tears where she'll be loved and treated with respect but this isn't enough, Thanet deserves a home and family to call her own. Thanet is happy to be picked up, held and cuddled but is still learning to walk on a harness which isn't surprising when until recently she had never seen a lead in her life. Thanet will need a resident dog to live with to make it easier for her to learn house training and how to learn to walk on a harness.
As you can see from the picture, Thanet wasn't fazed when meeting Molly in the barn and it shows how this girl is happy to adjust to her new life. If you feel that it's time to add to your family then please contemplate adopting Thanet, I think it's about time she has a home to call her own.

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.
