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.

31-01-2019 Sax is a 2 year old male Shih Tzu who's come to us as an unwanted stud dog. Sax has sore skin and will need a really good bath and groom plus ongoing special baths to get his skin back to normal. He's very shut down and timid but easy to handle. Sax has no idea about being loved by humans but behaves well and he's good with other dogs. This is very sad little dog who chooses not to look at you for pictures as he wants to make himself as small as possible in the hope you don't see him.  Poor Sax is very matted and will need a complete shave but his coat will grow back and he will become a handsome little chap.  He will need at least one very kind and gentle dog in his new home to give him some confidence.  He will watch them and start to copy what they do which will help him with house training.  Sax has a passport.

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.
