10-01-19 Olive is a 4 year old female Maltese, no longer required as the breeder has given up. She is very muddy at the moment and rather matted but with a groom and tlc she will look amazing. She is a sociable lady who enjoys other dogs company. She will be best with another dog to help her learn new skills like house training, but we may consider homing her as an only dog in the right circumstances and with experienced owners.  She already seems to enjoy cuddles and will love being someones special princess! She is lovely.  Olive is Passported.

Little Olive has undergone quite a transformation from the frail thing she came into foster as, a month ago. She's gained weight (now 4.2 kilos) and her coat is starting to grow.   She was happy to be bathed and groomed at the groomers and will eventually look beautiful. Olive is now very confident and took to walking out on a lead and harness like a pro. Happily travels in a car, fine in a crate. Not fazed by noisy traffic or household appliances and gallops up the stairs two by two!
She absolutely loves her walks, greets all dogs enthusiastically, gets very excited (sometimes too excited bit barky) loves really big dogs like Bearded Collies, Newfoundlands and English Bulldogs as well as small ones.
Olive's character is very boisterous and can be a little dominant. She loves to cuddle up to other dogs and humans and will snuggle and wash both, very happy to be handled. House training is progressing follows the others outside and just occasionally has an accident. She likes to sleep with her humans in the bedroom (and on the bed if she can) and settles well and sleeps through the night.
Olive loves her food and is fed separately otherwise would scoff everyone else's!  She likes to steal small things (remote controls etc) but is quite happy to swop for something more suitable like and antler bone or stuffed kong. She can be left for short periods of time as long as she has plenty of appropriate toys, stuffed kongs and antler bones to occupy her. Ideally she needs a home with another very confident dog/dogs who would help to teach her social graces and is up for boisterous play, but equally could possibly be an only dog in the right circumstances for someone who is around a lot of the time and is prepared to go out for walks with her to socialise with other dogs. Because of her size and puppy like nature she would not be suitable to be rehome with young children but would love teenagers who are dog savvy and are happy to play with her.

Olive is steadily gaining weight and is now 4.4 kilos and growing a beautiful white snowy coat. She is turning into a live wire, enjoys her walks and playtimes. She's a bright intelligent little soul and would suit someone who wants to have the kind of dog who thrives on interactive mental stimulation type play as she is very willing to please. She could easily be taught lots of tricks and games.
She has a good terrier type 'nose' and maybe scent work would be fun to do with her or even agility. She does love the company of very playful dogs who are prepared to play in a boisterous puppy like way. Possibly in the right circumstances, she could go as an only dog, but ONLY if that person is someone who is around the majority of the time and would be very willing to play and mentally stimulate her, otherwise she might become bored and find her own inappropriate pastimes!

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.
