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.

01-07-2019 Daisy is a 2 year old female Bichon who has come to us from a breeder. She's a scared girl who will need time and patience in her new home to come round. Daisy is very sweet but nervous of humans and whilst eventually she does let us pick her up she is very reluctant. Daisy will need a kind new dog or dogs in her new home to help her confidence grow and who she can watch and copy which will help her with house training and lead walking etc.

Daisy is settling in well but is still very hand shy. You can tell she wants to start to trust people but is just to unsure at the moment. She will need a caring and patience owner who is willing to work with her along with a resident dog to show her the ropes. She gets on well with her kennel friends and sleeps with them at night. I think with time she will be an amazing little girl and an amazing friend for life.

Daisy arrived with me in foster a few days ago and thanks to the amazing kennel staff, she is no longer the terrified little girl who arrived in July, but she still has a long way to go. Daisy would need to go to a home not only with a kind resident dog, but with people who are at home the majority of the time and have experience with very frightened dogs. Daisy definitely would need a home with no children or even visiting children as she would find them too much. Whilst Daisy is very hand shy and skittish, she is incredibly nosey, loves to know everything that is going on, is a typical mischevious 2 year old and if it isn't nailed down, Daisy thinks it belongs to her!
She will eat a treat if I roll it gently to her, will sit on the sofa with me or on a dog bed while I'm busy typing away - but that final jump that she needs to trust people and let them touch her, isn't there yet. Housetraining is a work in progress - as the weather has been lovely she's spent a lot of time in the garden but has to be reminded to go out if the door is closed.
Daisy is wonderful with other dogs - she has such a kind and loving nature. She is best friends with a little Cavachon I also have in foster who has slight hormonal alopecia, and I've watched Daisy gently lick her bald patches, bless her!
Daisy has had to have a very radical haircut as her coat was so stained and matted but I'm sure she feels so much lighter and dances around like a little lamb! Any adopter would need to appreciate that Bichons do need a lot of grooming and be prepared to commit to this.
If you look at the first pictures on her profile, you can see what a pretty girl she is - I think most of us have had a bit of a severe haircut and couldn't wait for it to grow back and Daisy is no exception! Daisy needs a family who will have no expectations of her, who realise that she has a traumatised past and is a flight risk and won’t rush to get her out walking - she will need a VERY secure home and garden and people who realise that her safety is paramount. If you think that you could offer this little flower her perfect forever home, we would love to hear from YOU

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.
