21-02-19 Rookie is a male poodle who has come from a breeder to find a new home. He is nervous of new surroundings but is inquisitve and will look around if he thinks you are not looking. He will run away when aproached by us though as he simply isn't used to human contact and does not understand it yet. He will need another dog or dogs in his new home to show him about living indoors, house training and be his friend. Rookie doesnt walk on a lead yet but easy to handle and is full of potential. He just needs a gentle hand to guide him. Please give him a chance and watch him bloom.

Meet the very handsome Rookie. Rookie is turning from the scared little poodle who arrived in foster to a little boy gaining in confidence day by day. He’s been ignored and left for so long, and now would like some attention from his new family. Rookie just didn’t know or realise how nice a cuddle feels and now he loves them, he’s a little shy to approach you but once you scoop him up he melts into you for a squeeze an closes his eyes.
Rookie can take treats from your hand, and is working hard to keep his place in the dog queue as he is quite submissive and loiters at the back. Rookie would love to go to dog training classes, he has no bad behaviour at all and is a blank canvass for you to mould into the best family pet you could hope for. He’s such a little sweetie, Go Rookie!!

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.
