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.

15-3-19 - Dinky is a very small little lad who has come from a breeder ad was shaved short before he arrived here. He like many other chihuahuas has learnt that he can control people and their big scary hands by being stroppy and and snippy with them. If a hand goes to grab him and it frightens him he has learnt that with an impressive display of bravado and bad language that hand will retreat and leave him be. As a result this little chap can appear to be unpredictable but we will work with him, showing him kindness and consistency. Dinky walks on a lead and will need an experienced home to live in. He takes a while to be picked up and needs to be approached slowly, Dinky isn't a scared dog, hes just learnt how to do things the wrong way. This can be worked on so that with time, patience and skill he will understand that life is far better 2ith love and kindness and he can then relax, give his trust and we will be very grateful to not have to be on guard all the time.This lovely little fellow isn't for everyone - he needs an adult only home with someone experienced and who understands how Dinky is feeling and is prepared to be consistent, fair and kind at all times to help him. Dink needs another small dog to learn housetraining from and see that the world isnt as scary as he thought

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.
