30-01-19 Archie is a young Schnauzer who has come from a breeder. He is a sorry soul who is scared of human touch and will shake when we approach. He has always been around other dogs and loves his kennel mates very much, snuggling in bed with them. He needs a gentle canine companion in his new home to help boost his confidence and show him all about living inside .  He will watch and start to copy them which will help with  house training and learning how to walk on a lead. He is a lovely boy who needs infinite patience to help him relax into his new loving home.

I have been working with Archie and although he is still pretty nervous and does still back away from people he does let you put a harness on him after a little while. He gets on very well with other dogs and with them is a very playful boy with a cheeky little face.
Archie will need a home where there is at least one confident resident dog. 
Today Archie took a treat from my hand! A little hesitant at first but he did it in the end this goes to show what with time and patients he can and will do things. Archie will need lot's of love, time and patients from his new family so if you can give this beautiful boy a happier life than he has had so far then come and meet him I know you will love him.

Archie is not making the progress we would hope for in kennels.  He will come up for a sniff if you sit there long enough but he really isn't liking being handled at the moment.  He doesn't do anything nasty but you can just feel that he really isn't keen.
Archie needs to be around someone consistently for him to learn to trust them, so a fosterer or family would be ideal. He isn't ready to start harness training yet as I just took him out and he found it far too much. The corner of his kennel is where he feels most confident when people are around but I really want this to change and for him to go somewhere and become a friendly happy dog.
Some dogs don't progress as well in kennels, and I think Archie is one of those, sadly. Can you break him free? Get him in to a safe place where he can start to gain confidence and trust in people's kindness? We are working with him daily but he can't receive the one on one that he obviously needs to become the dog that he should feel happy enough to be.

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.
