05-04-19 Wiggle is a 4 year old female Bichon Frise, Wiggle is a scared little girl, very sweet and pretty. Wiggle will let you pick her up and handle her but she just freezes as she has not really got a clue of what she should do when touched and is  frightened. Wiggle doesn't walk on a lead and will need another dog in her new home to help her adjust to her new life and allow her to copy new skills like housetraining and walking on a lead. She will need regular grooming and will soon look gorgeous. In time she will relax and bloom

SUPER MUM of the Year Award 2019 goes to Wiggle!
This fantastic, shy and beautiful Bichon has surprised us all with a litter of perfect pups. She has been such a wonderful Mum that she even took on an orphaned beagle puppy at the age of 4 weeks and has loved him as her own, feeding him, cleaning him and giving him the love and nourishment that has quite possibly saved his life. Now the pups are old enough to leave her it's time for Wiggle to put herself first and think of her own future for the first time.
Wiggle can be shy with strangers but this is very natural considering she has had pups to raise and protect. When she knows you she is a diamond and will bond well, allowing you to touch her, stroke her and pick her up. She is still unsure of cuddles although she tolerates them well.
Housetraining is a work in progress because she has been concentrating on more important things but can start to think about it and lead walking more once the pups have left.
Wiggle is a dog in a million - she just needs a calm home with understanding people to see her and love her the way she deserves

Wiggle is just lovely! She is really coming along now most of her pups have flown the nest. She is proving to be great with other dogs and is beginning to enjoy some sunshine in the garden. She is still shy of those she doesn't know yet but doesn't take long to accept a fuss and a treat. She really is a wonderful, pretty little girl. Anyone would be very lucky to have her in their lives.

Wiggle has changed foster home in order to give her a completely fresh start away from puppies. In fact, here in her new foster home, she has gone to the other extreme and has chosen the oldest dog in the house to buddy up with!
Wiggle was initially confused by the move. Now she has settled in more, she still tends to run away from us if we approach her in the house but she is much more confident when we're out in the garden and she will come up to us to ask for a head rub.
We have found Wiggle to be a lively little girl, who loves to be running around checking out what the other dogs and people in the house are getting up to, although she will happily settle down for a snooze if there's nothing interesting happening.
Wiggle has started going out for walks on the lead, and she has quickly learnt that walks are great. Wiggle is living with a cat, as well as with all size dogs and she will definitely need a friendly playmate in her forever home.

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.
