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.

Barcardi has now been with us since March apart from a spell in a foster home where he started to come out of his shell. He has now come back to us at the rescue in the hope someone would see him and potentially adopt him.
He is still a nervous boy who sometimes grumbles at you but with a little patience he will let you stroke him. We are letting him settle in again with his new room mates here at the rescue before we again try and put his harness on and start again on his training. He does try to be kennel clean so house training shouldn’t be an issue, especially after going to a foster foster home where he was pretty good. Although improving, he will need a home without children and have dogs established in the home to help show him the way and settle in. He will also need a home where he can be given enough time to adjust to life in a home. If you have time and patience and room in your home and heart please come and meet this boy.

Sylvia has been working with Barcardi and you can see the progress he is making now.  If you think you can continue with this and can work with him in your home please apply if if are an adopter or a fosterer.

Barcardi is making steady progress although as you can see in his video he is still mistrustful. He is beginning to walk on a lead and needs someone to appreciate his worries and difficulties. He is a project and we will not give up on him.

We are looking for a very special and dedicated home for Bacardi who have the experience to help him.
30-11-19 UPDATE

Dear Bacardi has been in foster now a few months. He is still terrified of humans, but we are very slowly chipping away the fear. I can put a treat in front of him now, without him running like the wind, he follows me around,  when he goes past me I can stroke him , without him turning, growling and wanting to bite. He is toilet trained, and comes in from the garden when called, so we are making progress. If you are thinking of applying for him, then you must really have a lot of experience,  be prepared for the worst, have a lot of patience and never give up on him. This is one dog that cant afford to be messed around. But as you can see he does like home comfort.


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.
Large breed dogs over 25kg cost us considerably more  to spay and neuter so if you are adopting a large breed dog we would be very grateful of an extra suggested donation of £10 towards this increased cost to help us keep running.
 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.
* Many Tears uses Vanguard to vaccinate their dogs.  However, this can sometimes be difficult to source at local vets so if you are adopting a dog or puppy that has only had one vaccination please be aware your vets may require you to start the course from the beginning.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
