25-7-19  Valentina has come to us from a breeder and is a very sad little girl who is looking for her forever home. She will need another kind resident dog or dogs to help her come out of her shell. She needs owners with plenty of time and patience to help her flourish. She has a sad looking face and it's pityful to see how worried she is about the world and humans. She has absolutely no idea about living in a home and this will be overwhelminf for her at first.  She will need kindness and understanding about house training etc but these things will come with time, love and patience. 

11-08-19 UPDATE
Valentina has been in foster with me for 10 days now. She is showing little signs of coming out of her shell. She is a dog of two halves, happy follows my dogs into the garden and follows them about, tail wagging, then returns indoors to the dog bed under the coffee table to watch me and the other dogs.
If i pick her up she is starting to relax next to me for a while but wants to head back to her bed. She is starting to come to me briefly to lick my toes! And wags her tail when i walk in the room.
As the door to the garden is always open, she is confident enough to take herself out for a wee or poo, only 2 wees indoors in 10 days and these were at night on the puppy pad.
She is totally overwhelmed outside the house and nowhere near brave enough for a lead so joins our walks in a dog buggy where she feels safe, and can watch the big wide world. Is calm if people stroke her but not ready to interact with them yet.

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.
