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.

04-09-2019 Simon is a 6 month old male pug cross beagle who has come to us from a breeder.  He is a very nervous pup who spends the day hiding in bed out of the way of humans.  He shakes with fear when we are near which is so sad to see at such a young age.  Simon will need house training and doesn't walk on a lead.   Simon will need to be neutered at the age of 6 months and will need to attend training classes.

Simon moved into foster with us a few days ago, after taking advantage of his previous fosterers very good natured small dogs and overwhelming them with his pure zest for life!
Simon, or Sennen as he is known here, is almost pretty much how you would expect an 8 month old youngster to be! He loves other dogs, to the point that he forgets his doggy manners and has to be reminded by both our resident dogs and myself to play in a more gentlemanly like fashion!
Sennen loves to play with toys and can happily amuse himself with toys/chews although they do have to be able to withstand his serious chomping skills, and he will collect and adapt items he finds.
When accompanied by a confident dog(s), Sennen walks alongside busy roads without a murmur, paying no heed to buses, motorbikes and other traffic. In the house with our dogs, he follows us around, prefering to be in the same room as we are and likes to be a part of the goings on.
When spending time in Sennens company it is very easy to forget that he is handshy, because he is so confident in all other areas when with his doggy friends. He will take treats/toys out of our hands and sleep near a human on the sofa. It is only when we go to stroke him that he shows that his level of trust in people is not yet fully there as he will dart away. However he will now if settled on the sofa with our dogs let us stroke him, not always moving away as long as the interactions are kept brief.
Sennens perfect home would be with active and fun people, with at least one 'bomb proof' resident dog who is larger then himself who will play and let him cuddle in but also give him firm but fair boundaries on acceptable doggy ettiquette.
Sennen is a fun, energetic chap who just needs time and patience to help him fully overcome his distrust of people/hands. At this time Sennen would be better in a cat/small furry free home.

Hi Everyone, Simon here, although in my foster home i'm called Sennen. I have been with my new fosterers a month now and have found my paws! My favourite friend here is a setter, she will play with me and chase around but I do also love my other foster sisters as they let me cuddle in to snooze.
I am more respectful of larger dogs, I don't irritate my old labrador foster sister because she has made it quite clear that im not to behave like a twit around her. With my small foster sister, i do push the boundaries with her (only because i really want her to wrestle with me...) so a forever family with a bigger dog would be great (it doesn't matter how big as i have a huge foster boxer boy cousin who i really love! I am clean in the house, as long as given lots of opportunity to go outside and I also toilet on walks. I have started to indicate when I need to go out by knocking on the back door, if i need to go out at nightime i usually bark once.
I sleep quietly all night with my foster sisters downstairs, and usually sleep for about 7 1/2 hours before I need to go outside, although i will go back to bed if it is still early and dark without a fuss. I love my walks, all other dogs and playing/cuddling up with resident dogs however I am still not sure on being stroked by my human foster family unless its the evening when i'm sleepy and sat on the sofa with everyone.
My perfect home would be with people who know it will take time before i want to be stroked, who love walks and adventures, with a resident dog who likes to play and cuddle but who I won't overwhelm with my joy for life! I am used to be being left for up to 3 hours a day, with my foster sisters and as long as i have had a good walk before hand I don't mind although things can't be left in my reach as i will collect things and adapt them! I do need a cat free home as i chase them, they just look so funny i can't help myself! Hope to meet you soon
Love Simon x

Sennen as he is known in foster is still patiently waiting for his forever family to find him. This fun, outgoing little chap adores his doggy foster sisters, and they in turn enjoy playing and snoozing with him especally now he has learnt some doggy manners!
When accompanied by confident dogs, Sennen is an uncomplicated dog, who loves adventures and all dogs, especially ones who appreciate a good wrestle. Although still hand shy with people, he now gets excited when I come back into the house, when I'm sat down he is usually not far away and will approach for me to stroke him, however when I'm stood up he still doesn't fully trust me and will dart away if I try and touch him. He is braver with me then he is with his foster Dad, although if our dogs are near him he will join them.
Sennen is clean in the house, walks on a lead (although he does pull initially and needs reminding to walk nicely) and is not at all bothered by the comings and goings of our busy home. Its hard to see any youngster overlooked, but for Sennen its doubly hard as he has had to wait for quite awhile and will soon be waving goodbye to his puppyhood.
All Sennen needs is a family with fun dogs, where any children are old enough to understand to give him the space and time he needs to fully trust people. He currently lives alongside 2 very dog savvy children quite happily and is not bothered by their noise. Sennen does require a cat free home.

ADOPTION DETAILS
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.
Large breed dogs over 25kg cost us considerably more  to spay and neuter so if you are adopting a large breed dog we would be very grateful of an extra suggested donation of £10 towards this increased cost to help us keep running.
 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.
* Many Tears uses Vanguard to vaccinate their dogs.  However, this can sometimes be difficult to source at local vets so if you are adopting a dog or puppy that has only had one vaccination please be aware your vets may require you to start the course from the beginning.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
