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.

7-7-19 Roxy has come to us from a home as she was being left for 12 hours a day.  As a collie she would have found this very difficult and she is going to need a home with collie experience and an active life style  where she will get the exercise a girl like her needs. Roxy did not take grooming very well so time and patience is a must for her and we will try again and get some better photos once she's been done.  She is now starting to settle and loves her walks and going for a good run.  Once she knows you Roxy likes to be fussed but she needs an adult only home as an only dog as she is not keen on sharing with them at the moment.

Roxie is a live wire and will need an energetic family. She will happily walk for hours and is very good on the lead when out, so she would be best off going to the adventurous type.
Roxie had a bad start to her life, being locked up in a cage for hours on end every single day. This has caused her to be a high maintenance dog with quite high stress levels. She also has some hair loss on her side which could be stress induced alopecia.
Roxie would be best going as an only dog to her new home, as she can be selective with other dogs, and can become quite jealous if too much attention is being paid to another dog.
Roxie loves to play with toys and will chase a ball continuously if given the chance. She lies down and waits for the ball to be thrown for her, the further the distance the better in her eyes. She will then bring the ball back to you, but whether she drops it for you to throw again is give or take - sometimes she throws it for herself which is highly amusing.
Roxie is getting better with people since being with us and having to see a lot of different people everyday. However, her trust issues still remain. She can be a little picky with who she likes and who she doesn’t. This isn’t to say she is nasty, but given her past, it is clear to see why she may have issues with some people. Due to this, it is best that you come to the centre if you’re interested in her, as at the end of the day, it’s up to Roxie whether you’re the correct match or not.
Training will be needed for Roxie to ensure she is mentally stimulated. She is a quick learner and loves to learn new tricks, so lots of enrichment will be needed to keep her busy.
Roxie is a wonderful girl when she gets to know you, so I hope she gets the right home that she deserves very soon.

Today Roxy went for a bike ride with me, she ran next door to the bike like she had always done it! We cycled and ran for about 1.5 miles and she would have quite happily done it again. She is looking for a home where she will be exercised daily and a home with someone experienced and someone who has owned a collie before.
She needs a child and small furry free home where the garden is totally secure. if you think Roxy is the one then please apply

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.

ADOPTION DETAILS
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.
