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.

21-8-19 Jean is a female bichon who has come to us from a breeder. Jean has spent her life as a breeding girl and is an absolute sweetheart who loves a cwtch (cuddle) and will happily approach you for some fuss. She has never lived in a home so this will be very new to her and a little scary at first but with time, love and patience she will settle and learn to love her new world. Jean doesn't  walk on a lead so would benefit from another dog in her new home that can show her how this is done and help her with house training. She is going to need a soft food diet as she has no teeth.  Jean is a little super star in need of a super home.

20-09-19 UPDATE

Jean arrived in Foster on 23-8-19 and made herself at home quite quickly.
House training is work in progress but she does make use of the puppy pads and will follow the other dogs outside when they need to toilet. She also likes to follow my other foster giving chase to the cats and can get quite vocal but just short outbursts.
She enjoys her food (softened kibble) and gets quite excited when it's on its way however, she can get a little bossy with the other dogs at meal times so she's fed seperatly... for her own protection. She loves a stuffed Kong and and all sorts of treats.
Jean walks happily on a lead with and without the company of the other dogs. Jean is fabulous, so adorable and can be quite fiesty. She definately sees herself as top dog even though she's really small.
She loves people and is extremely affectionate. She does get a little grouchy if the other dogs try to invade her space when she's settling down on my lap for a snooze.... but being practically toothless her bark is definitely worse than her bite.
She's bright as a button and quite a little character. She knows her name and comes quite eagerly when called and... this little star has nailed her "sit" (who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks.) Everyone whose met her has fallen in love with her.
She loves a cwtch and a gentle massage and once she's comfortable will fall asleep within seconds. Nothing seems to have phased her so far. Considering her background she appears to be a confident little lady and she's definitely enjoying her new life.
She has been out in the car a few times with no issues and she's been left with a few other dogs for a couple of hours.
Jean had to be shaved because her coat was very matted but it's growing back beautifully. She does get in a bit of a mess eating but a quick gentle wipe around her mouth and she's good to go.
She's the epitome of a lap dog... gorgeous, smart, courageous, Little Miss Jeanie.

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.
