06-03-2019 Barcardi is a nervous boy who has come from a breeder.  He does start to relax when he has spent some time with people but will need a nice resident dog in his new home to help his confidence. This will also help him with house training and lead walking as he will watch and start to copy what they do.  Barcardi is worried so doesnt enjoy being handled and won't yet aproach us so he will need a kind and quiet home where he can start to learn about life as a pet.

Barcardi is still quite nervous of new people at the moment but we are trying to introduce him to new faces and bring him slowly out of his comfort zone, which at the moment is at the back of the kennel and out of sight. He's very scared of sudden movements and loud noises so his adopted parents will need to be understanding of this and have a resident dog at home with them to help him deal with a strange new world he is not yet used to. Barcardi learns well from his kennel buddies so this should not be a problem for him to come out of his shell in a loving environment. As you can see in the photo, we have been trying to get this handsome lad used to a harness over the past couple of days and although small, there is improvement. He is yet to walk more than a few steps on his own but he is enjoying being out of his kennel and is learning each day.  Please come and visit him if you think you could offer him his new start in life.

Hi, my name is Barcardi and I am desperately looking for a home as I’m finding kennel life hard to deal with at the moment.
The lady who came to take photos of me earlier was a little scary as I’d never see her before, but as soon as she spoke softly to me and crouched down, she was less scary.
I will need a home with at least one other dog please, this is to give me someone of my own kind to follow and learn from.
The people I know at the kennels are still making me where this dreaded harness, I am slowly getting to like it better and am taking more steps! More work is needed here though please :)
I just hope there is someone out there who can give me the right home, with lots of patience, love and patience, where I can come out of my shell and be the loving dog I am deep down.

Bacardi known here in foster as Cody has been here in foster with us in Norfolk just over a week, he has settled in with my resident dogs very well and is learning to play and have fun with them in the garden, little Cody is very scared of humans they really worry him and he will run away and hide and prefers the company of his doggy friends.
He is now wearing a harness but attaching the lead is worrying him but in time this will happen, he is very good with his house training and we have only had one little accident from him in a week.
Cody requires a nice quiet home with a friendly dog or dogs that will teach him new things, give him confidence and play with him he loves to play zoomies round the garden and act like a puppy that he was never allowed to be.
Cody will need a home without children or visiting young children as these will worry and scare him, his adopters would ideally be experienced with an ex breeding dog.
Once this little boy overcomes his fear of humans and learns we have kind hands and hearts he will emerge a loving little boy but his will take time and patience from his adopters.

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.
