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.

17-1-19 - Rosa has been a breeding dog her entire left and now at eight years old she has retired. She is a super scared and really doesn't trust us yet. Due to her frightened nature we will need a very special and experienced home for Rosa with a kind resident dog to show her all about housetraining and to have a friend who speaks her language. She has had nothing but thorns in her life, It's time she bloomed.

Rosa is a very sad little dog who has obviously been mistreated in her past and associates most people as a threat. She came to us extremely pregnant and had 4 beautiful pups who have now flown the nest. Rosa is not "vicious" by any means, she is just a very scared little dog and her response (until you have proved to her other wise) is to sort of get in there first. She growls and she will lunge forward.... yet offer her party size sausages or tiny pieces of ham and she looks at you with her head on one side and EVER so gently takes the treat. Rosa HAS improved a lot since socialising with our residant dogs but She is a very confused little dog who as she is growling wags her tail BUT she could very easily nip from fear and for this reason I wouldn't consider homing Rosa with children at the moment. Rosa loves cuddling up with the other little dogs in the house, for this reason it is quite important that she has a snuggle buddy to share her bed. House Training, she is doing brilliant and is now 95% house dry. Rosa is NOT a bad dog, she has been let down by bad people in her past..... we only hope that a really special person can see past her "quirks" and open their home and heart to her forever.

Rosa is a very scared girl, she moved foster home in November and has slowly been settling. She will come up to me and take treats, but still doesn't like to be touched. She needs a home that is very experienced with scared ex breeders.

Poor Rosa is still a very scared girl. She loves other dogs, it's just humans she struggles with. Today I've given her a haircut, we did need a muzzle to do her legs and paws, but she was really good while I did her face. I then put a harness on and took her out the front of the house, she was very scared but didnt figh't to get away. Rosa needs a very experienced home, that has a lot of patience.

Rosa is making steady progress. She takes time to trust and she now takes treats from me. She loves her food! She is a girl that taes time and patience as she could easily take a few steps backwards in her new home, which is to be expected. Toilet training is making progress but is rather weather dependant at the moment! This girl has lots of character and just needs the right experienced, quiet home.


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 ROSA is by donation rather than the full adoption fee, we ask for a minimum donation of £150 to help cover our costs. All 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.

* Many Tears uses Vanguard to vaccinate their dogs.  However, this can sometimes be difficult to source at local vets so if you are adopting a dog or puppy that has only had one vaccination please be aware your vets may require you to start the course from the beginning.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
