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.

24-07-2019 Ionic is a 5 year old female Shih Tzu who has come to us from a breeder.  She is sweet but nervous so will need another dog or dogs in her new home to help her settle in life in a home.  She will need house training and doesn't walks on a lead but is ok to be handled. Ionic needs a home with someone who can show her the ropes and bring her out of her shell.  She timid but wants to be brave so with time, love and patience she will learn about what is expected and to trust her new family.  Ionic has a passport.

Ionic is a quiet little dog. She has settled really well in foster. Sleeps with ours downstairs and last night was completely clean overnight , she has been clean in the day time all along. Enjoys her food , walks on a long lead and is desperate to run off with ours. Ionic is a very easy foster , but needs another dog for reassurance.

Ionic is a lovely quiet gentle dog. Had her groomed and her coat is now showing nice markings. Walks lovely on the lead and seems to keep looking up for instruction.clean in the house including overnight. Loves to follow our dogs around and just watches everything going on. Such an easy foster dog.

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.
