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.

22-02-19 - Vincent is a big handsome confident boy. He is ever so friendly and already walks on a lead. Vincent's love for people is clearly shown. He is very bouncy and will need a lot of training and guidance so he is looking for someone to show him consistency and let him know what's ok and what's not. We wouldnt recommend he be homed with young or small children  due to his size and active nature, he could easily knock a little one flying by accident. He will need to learn all about housetraining which may take time and lots of patience. He is a very happy overgrown puppy who will go from strength to strength inthe right home.

What a happy and energetic boy Vincent is. He will require a home where they can keep up with his training as if he is allowed to be strong on the lead then he will be, but with correction he walks beautifully. Vincent is a very smart boy and already knows sit, stop and wait. He does require lots of exercise and mental stimulation.

18-03-19 UPDATE

Vincent is coming on well with his training, which is mainly to stop him jumping up.  Were he a bichon this wouldn't be a problem, but being that he is the size of a well built German Shepherd it's an issue we're trying to address. He is getting much better and tries to stay with all four paws on the ground but does bounce a bit in excitement.
The other thing I'm trying to teach him is to give the tennis ball back with which he is obsessed. I love this big teddy bear but he is not for the faint hearted, he's cuddly and happy and like an just an overgrown puppy. however, he did fail his cat test today, so a home without cats is a must

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.
