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 Dee came to us from a breeder.  She is very worried at the moment and needs time to get used to us but once she is comfortable with you she relaxes a little and allows you you stroke her.  Dee will need an adult only home with owners who have experience with scared dogs.  She will need to be homed with at least one other dog kind and gentle dog to help her in the big wide world which she has never seen before.  This will help her with house training and lead walking. 

17-09-19 UPDATE
Dee has settled in well over the last week and is now a lot more comfortable with meeting people compared to how she was when she arrived. She is still wary at times but is building trust in me and is happy to interact, show her playful side and have a cuddle.
After spending some time with her we tried her on a harness for the second day and now look at her go, strutting around like she's been doing this all her life! Dee was happy being totally care free when outside and was curious of everything that was happening around her, especially the horses that were heading back to their stables.
Dee has shown no sign of the fearful growling side she did when she arrived at MT which was only to warn off strangers if they went to pick her up when she was stressed. For that reason she could possibly be suitable as a family dog now with older children but would still need a resident dog to learn from.
Dee is always at the front of her kennel waiting to greet me during the day & loves going out into the play yard with her friends. Dee is excited for her new life ahead & hopefully it is just around the corner.

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.
