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.

11-8-19  Salt is a very sweet lad who has come to us from a breeder.  He is very shut down at the moment but adores his new soft bed and very rarely leaves it.  Poor Salt arrived here with an ulcer in his left eye which we are treating and he should be feeling a little more comfortable soon.   He will really need another kind confident dog or dogs to live with in his new home and a lovely owner who understands Salt's needs.  He knows absolutely nothing about living in a home, being loved or taken for a walk  and he will need to learn about house training. but these things will all come with time, love and patience.

Hi guys
It's Salt here. My kennel mummy just adores me and says im doing very well and really starting to come out of my shell. I will stand at the front of my kennel and wag my little tail until she opens the door and lets me out into the yard, I like to take my time and toodle out as I have to say hello to all my neighbours first.
I have started harness and lead training.  To start with I wasn't too happy about this but now it's not all that bad. I've had the lead attached to me a few times and was a little nervous again but my kennel mum reassures me and gives me treats, this has helped me lots as I like a treats.
Kennel mummy also says that my eye is looking really good and are going the way they should - I'm a very good boy having my eye drops! I'd really like a doggy friend in my new home, someone who is calm and quiet as I am a gentle little soul. I would really like to get to know and like the big outside world, I've been told it is a nice place to be. Please, if you'd like a pal to cwtch (cuddle) up on your lap then consider me because I am your man 🙂.

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.
