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.

12-01-19 Carnation is an ex breeding Bichon, who has come into us to find her forever home. She has a mature cataract in her right eye and the beginnings of one in her left, but she manages very well.   She is a bright little girl, who is still worried about the big wide world. Carnation is still very hand shy, so will need another dog in her new home to be her friend. She has never lived in a home before, so will not be house trained or walking on a lead but with another dog to copy and the encouragement of someone who loves her she will soon settle.

Carnation is such a wonderful little Bichon! She has been with us a while now and has come out of her shell so much, despite the fact that she’s been under veterinary care over the last few months having had her tail amputated due to an injury.
She makes her kennel mum/dad very aware that she is not happy with the cone the vet has given her in order to stop her getting near her tail - although she doesn’t put up a fuss when we take it off and on for meal times!
Today I put a harness on Carnation for what I think was the first time, we went out to the garden and I let her have a wander around, going where she wanted to go and sniffing what she wanted to sniff. She seemed to adore feeling the sun on face and feel the wind in her fur. This sweet girl would love a comfy home with someone who is able to show her the ropes on how to live life as the pampered pooch she so deserves to be.

Carnation aka Connie in Foster is doing amazing, her tail is very nearly healed and she's loving life, I couldn't leave her there another day when I saw how depressed she had got in kennels the tail bitting was because she was bored in kennels. She only has the cone on at night just incase as she has a nibble. She's had a shave make over as I can't bath her at the moment and she's feeling tip top she stood like a dream to be shaved. Connie's sight isn't the best, she will be seeing the vet about her tail and sight, if you give her teddies she loves the running round the garden with her stump wagging she's amazing little girl who deserves the best

Carnation has been in foster with us for 3 weeks and she has been a perfect house guest. She gets on with all the other dogs here, is clean in the house, sleeps through the night with the other dogs in the bedroom and she eats well.
Carnation will take treats from my hand. Lead and harness walking is still a little hit and miss but she will get there.
Carnation has enjoyed being in the garden taking in the sunshine and watching the birds. Carnation is a gentle little girl looking for her forever retirement home, please do not be put off by her only having a stump of a tail she can still wag it.
Carnation does have a Mature Cataract in her right eye and a Mild Cataract in the left, this would need to be taken into consideration by anyone that was to adopt her.
We are looking for a calm home with another small dog and someone home most of the time for this sweet girl,unfortunately small children would be too much for her at the moment

Carnation has been in foster here for 3 months, with no interest at all. Ourselves and Carnation cannot understand this as she is a beautiful girl both inside and out.
She is such a easy little foster girl, getting on with all the resident dogs as well as the other foster dogs. Carnation is walking well on here lead and harness although some walks can take longer than others as she does like to stop and take in all the smells around.
She sleeps through the night and eats well and is clean in the house.
Carnation would love to find her forever home could this be yours. We are looking for a calm home with another small dog to help her in her new life and she would love someone home most of the time. Small children would still be a little to much for Carnation at the moment, but visiting grandchildren that are respectful of dogs would be fine.

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.

Although CARNATION is by donation rather than the full adoption fee, we ask for a minimum donation of £100 to help cover the costs that have been incurred. 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. 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. 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.
