Adoption Fee: A minimum donation of £100

Location: In Foster in
Corsham, Wiltshire

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.

24-1-19 Norma is an ex-breeding beagle and she is very dependent on her kennel mates.  She just shuts down when taken her away from them so she really will need another dog or dogs to live with.  This will help her confidence with people and she will watch and copy what they do which will help her with lead walking and house training.  She is a sweet girl who wants to be brave so with gentle words or encouragement and kind hands and voices she will start to learn to trust.  If you think you can offer her that then please apply.  She is a lovely little girl in need of a home.

Norma is doing very well here at Many Tears. She is a quiet girl who you just wouldn't know was even there! She spends all of her day cuddled up in bed alongside her best friend Rowie who is a smaller female schnauzer, and at bed time she will snuggle up and share her bed with another dog too - another smaller dog called Worry, who is a male pug.
At playtime she will dive out of her bed and bound out of her kennel and down the corridor into their play ground to have a good sniff about. Norma, or Norma Jean as I call her, can now walk on a lead and walks beautifully! She sometimes gets taken out on a long line so she has a little more freedom and space to explore! If she doesn't have a walk, because the weather is bad - Norma Jean becomes quite depressed bless her! Out on walks her nose is to the ground and her tail and big bum wags non stop! She meets all other dogs out on walks wonderfully and politely!
These days Norma Jean is showing her more happy, bouncey, fun side - say when I go and say hello to her first thing in the morning - she gets excited because she knows she is going to go outside and have some food! So she jumps about playfully and happily! It's so cute seeing her like this these days! Norma is a big girl who is on a little bit of a diet - she really loves her food and will happily, and ever so gently take food out of our hands
Norma is a great gal who is more than ready for her forever home! She cannot wait to discover more of what life has to offer and have more fun and get a little more comfy with cuddles! Nora will need to be homed with another more confident dog - it doesn't matter what kind of dog as she gets on with everyone! Norma is just so lovely and so easy to work with. And, she is also extremely pretty! I adore her! Just look at her beautiful, soulful, smiling face! How can anyone resist? I'd snap her up if I had space.

Meet Norma the beagle she's been with us now nearly 2 months. She has grown in confidence so much and walks well on the lead. Norma can possibly be an only dog in the right home. She loves her bed but would prefer to share yours so please help us find her forever home.

Norma is a timid girl but is coming along nicely. She freaked when the grandchildren arrived to stay but, within a few days, was approaching them and accepting fuss. Her lead walking is very Beagle – nose on the ground and following the scent to the exclusion of all else. Her house training is good subject to the occasional night time poop accident. It is a delight when she has a ‘funny five minutes’ to see her bouncing around the lounge like a puppy and then doing zoomies round the garden – just happy to be alive! She meets all dogs and people politely on the walk.

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 NORMA 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.
