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.

5-4-19 Indigo is an ex-breeding bichon.  She is a very nervous girl and will growl out of fear but won't snap. She is terrified of us humans at the moment and needs someone who has lots of time and love to offer. She is a sad poor girl who needs regular interaction with people to help her know we don't mean any harm.  Indigo will need a quite, calm and experienced home with at least one other dog to help her.  She will watch what they do and start to copy them which will help with house training and lead walking.  However, these things will not happen overnight and Indigo will need someone with plenty of time and patience to help her adjust to her new life.

Indigo is a scared girl but has come quite far since being at MT. She is scared and tends to bark but when around her for a short while she calms down and allows you to approach her and pick her up,she doesn't bite,she needs time and patience and another dog to help show her life can be good and humans are not all bad as she is an ex breeder. She is a lovely little bichon that needs a loving forever home can you give this beautiful soul the deserved home she needs to blossom.

Indigo has been here for over two months now and she has come out of herself a lot since she first arrived.  She no longer growls when you go near her and will come up to you after a little while. She is a very sweet girl, I only spent time with her today but she let me smooth her for some time and was very happy to stay there, she even give me some kisses!
She gets on very well with her kennel friends and loves being out in the play yard with them. She will need a resident dog to help her with walking and house training. As Indigo gains more confidence she is going to be such an amazing girl even more than she is now! She is looking for a forever home that will show her all the love she deserves and give her the time she needs to grow and finally have a happy life.

Indigo has been with us nearly 4 months!! She could really do with getting into a home to gain some much needed confidence, she loves being around other dogs and gets on really well with them she just needs to start trusting humans. Today I sat in the yard with her and her kennel friends she did come close to me but wasn't really fussed on letting me smooth her, she really enjoys having treats but didn't want to take it from my hand although she was trying very hard to be brave.  I am sure with a few minutes spend on this each day she will learn to trust. She isn't yet walking on a lead so will need a home where there is at least one resident dog to help her along with this, she will also need a home where there will be someone who has the time she needs to help her grow into the amazing girl I know she will be.

Indigo is a nervous girl who will need a home with people who take their time with her. She isn't sure of people she doesn't know but with time will come up to you. She has been here since April so this lovely girl needs to get out of kennels and into a home so she understands that people are loving and want to be friends with her. We are sure when Indigo feels safe she will come right out of her shell, she will need a friendly dog in her new home to help her with this and we are looking for a child free home for her as she'd find children too much at the moment. Indigo gets on really well with all of her kennel friends and her favourite thing is to go out into the yard with them for some sniffs.

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.
