21-2-19 -Roo is a Yorkie who has come from a breeder. She has the most beautiful floppy ears! She is little bit nervous when approached but settles in your lap. She wants to be a lap dog and will need a nice kind resident dog or dogs to learn from. Roo doesnt walk on a lead and doesnt know about house training yet but in time she should master it! Roo is not very confident but in time she will be very brave she just needs some love to help her get there.

10-02-18 UPDATE

Roo is a little sweetie. She is 10 inches high to the shoulder, and around 12 inches from her collar to the start of her tail, and is 4.6kg. She is a little timid, but getting better, and is now coming to her name. ( I call her Ruby).
She eats well, and sleeps all night in her crate, with her foster sister Recon, another little yorkie, without a peep. Roo does not like to be on her own, and cries if she is in a room by herself, so will definitely need to be homed with another friendly dog, with whom she can cuddle up.
House training is coming along, however, Roo is still having accidents, but will go into the garden to toilet, and accidents are getting less. Roo is not yet confident enough to go out on a lead, but will happily run round the garden with a trailing lead on to get her used to the feel of a lead.  She is scared of my young Grandchildren, so is best homed with adults, or with older children who are dog savvy.
Over the last week, Roo has found the joy of strokes and cuddles, and jumps onto the sofa to get on my lap at every opportunity. I have today spent time grooming her, and trimming her fur to get some deep matts out. Roo loved it! She almost fell asleep.
She is very inquisitive, and chased leaves blowing around the garden, and spent some time patting a tennis ball, jumping around it as it moved, barking excitedly. Toys! who knew they could be such fun? Roo is a delightful, funny little girl, who, once her confidence has grown, will be a comical, clown and a brilliant little dog.

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.
