30-05-19 - Handle is a slightly nervous dog but he will let you pick him up but flinches when in your arms. He does try to get away and is not quite comfortable enough to settle yet. We will practice with him, reward and encourage him and show him that we are kind and care about him. Handle will need a resident dog and a calm environment to be handled and learn how to be a dog. He will need to learn about housetraining, walking on a lead and all the other things that home dogs know such as where the biscuit tin is! He is lovely, has heaps of potential - he just needs someone special to help him along.

Handle is a beautiful boy inside and out. Yesterday I sat in his kennel and fed him treats while he's on his own. Handle is a perfect boy when he is around people he nows, but when people that he doesn't know approaches him he is a little scared. He doesn't yet walk on a lead but with a little help I'm sure he will soon. He will now come and take a treat from my hands and will come up an take a toy. Handle will need a home with bigger female dogs and no males as he has shown not to be not good with them. Handle is fine to handle, and will come up to you to be picked up. if you like the look of handle then please apply for him.

Handle is a Handsome Jack Russel Terrier. As we spent some time in the sun, he was well known as people came over to fuss him saying “that’s Handle!”. He is well known for his sweet nature, love of cuddles and his happy eyes. This gorgeous boy who would love a home with another dog companion. If you can over this boy the life he deserves, fill out an application form.

Handle is a very sweet boy who has been here a few weeks now. He's gained a lot of confidence since he first arrived and has made great progress. He is still a little hand shy around his neck and head; especially around people he doesn't know very well, and so we walk him on a harness, although he is getting much better. He would need a home without cats and with another female dog and can be fussy who he likes. He is good with his kennel friend and is happy to let you cuddle his friend without getting jealous. Handle is such a sweet dog and it's a shame he gets overlooked. If you think you can give this boy a loving home please put in an application.

I've had the pleasure of working with Handle many times since he came to us, and I genuinely could not be happier with the progress he’s made. He now walks beautifully on a lead and he enjoys a fuss around his head and neck!
He’s a very affectionate little boy, he’s always following me around and giving me kisses at every opportunity. His confidence has improved so much that he could now go as an only dog; meaning he will not need a resident dog at home with him.
Handle is still a bit weary of certain people .. but if he likes you, he will give you absolutely all of his love and affection. So it is best if you come down to the centre to meet him, give him a fuss and maybe take him for a walk, if you’re interested in adopting him. He really is a lovely little dog, and I can’t wait for him to find his forever home! If you like cuddles and kisses then please come to meet him

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.
