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.

6-9-19  Osca is a chihuahua from a breeder. He is such a sweet little chap and although lacking a little confidence at the momet he is starting to show he is enjoying love he's just a little worried about it. Osca would be best homed with a dog or dogs who are larger than him with experienced owners who have had scared dogs before. He cannot be homed with small children as he would find them too much to cope with.

23-10-19 UPDATE

Osca has been with us here at Hotel Chihuahua for just over 3 weeks now and is starting to understand what living in a home with ohter dogs and humans is all about.
To begin with he was very shut down and scared, spending most of his time under a coffee table that he felt was his safe place. Initialy he did not even trust the food he was offered. That only lasted a couple of days and he now knows where to go for his food and has now started to play and socialise with all the others,even to the extent of sharing a sofa with them and joining the choir.
He has also started to use the garden for his toilet in the way he's seen the others do.
In the last few days he has started to show signs of wanting to get a share of the fussing and cuddling that the others have.
Slow progress but we are moving in the right direction.
Once he allows hand contact then we can starton all the other good things like walks and grooming plus recall training as well.
His one big problem is his dislike of female humans, he doesn't discriminate where other dogs are concerned. It seems to me that early mistreatment may have something to do with this. I have been trying to get him past this by letting him meet friends and neighbours to aclimatise him to kindness in that area. Hopefully time will prove to be the healer in that area. Obviously this will prove a difficulty with adoption but I'm hoping for a good outcome.

02-03-20 UPDATE
Since he arrived here at Hotel Chihuahua Osca has settled in well with the permanant residents and has been learning from them. He knows all our routines like feeding times, bed time, treat time and, most importantly, how to ask to go out for his toilet brakes. The only difficulty with him is that he remains hand shy, although we are making slow progress. He will come and sit on the sofa with the others and occasionaly sits right next to me. If I am very careful he will allow a small stoke. He has got over his fear of females and greets visitors with all the enthusiasm of the rest of the gang. Lead training is still on the to do list.

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.
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.
