02-08-19 Shimmer is a 4 year old female Retriever who has come from a breeder. She is a lovely girl but very scared sp not yet walking on a lead, properly yet. She will need a resident dogt o copy new skills such as housetraining and other home skills. We think she will come out of herself pretty quickly when shown love, kindness and patience and then she will truly bloom

10-08-19 UPDATE

Shimmer has now been in foster home for 3 days and she is really starting to come out of her shell. She is not used to the sights and sounds of a home but she is slowly becoming exposed to all the strange noises and comings and goings.
She is a gentle sweet natured girl who needs someone with bit of patience to continue her rehabilitation. She is cat friendly (actually a bit nervous of them!), walks nicely on the lead with no pulling, is toilet trained, sleeps downstairs on her own, enjoys a stroke and a groom and is a low energy laid back type.
She is very loving and gives the best greeting when you come down in the morning. She is still wary of her surroundings and feels most comfortable in the garden so she needs someone who can give her time to get adjusted to her new forever home.
We recommend that she is not suitable for young children (under 8) and needs another dog as a companion, she really finds comfort in our 2 resident dogs and lights up when they play with her .

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.
