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.

24-01-20 Meg has been returned to me after a brief spell in a home. I first met Meg when visiting Many Tears and was drawn to her by her quiet demeanour and nervous disposition. She simply sat at the gate looking out, oblivious to the other dogs around her, seemingly waiting for something or someone to return. When in the kennel I looked into her eyes and could see a dog longing to find someone in her life to trust and to love. I couldn't take her home that day, but she remained in my thoughts until about three-four weeks later when I decided she needed to be fostered. Meg will make a wonderful and forever loyal companion to someone that has the time to devote to her.
Meg is currently being fostered in a home with five other dogs. She gets on well with all dogs, more so the two-year-old male. She also mixes well with other dogs that she knows. 
She is a nervous girl but once she has bonded with you will be your eternal shadow. I would advise setting boundaries with regards to affection as she can get jealous if you are petting her and another dog then wants to join in. I have found a firm ‘No’ and then ceasing giving her attention works well to correct this.
She is good in a crate and does not seem to show any form of anxiety when left for period of time in one. Her previous adopters did leave her in the kitchen when they went out and she was destructive in that instance. I would suggest that a large comfortable crate would be the best way forward until she understands that you will always return to her.
Meg needs an assertive, calm and relaxed-natured person who is fairly active (preferably male) and who has experience of nervous dogs/collies. Other young dogs in the house would be a benefit. I would advise against having children in the house but she did get on well with the previous adopters (dog savvy) grandchildren aged 14+.

Meg is learning so much in foster. Her recall is excellent and she is loving long walks. Please consider her



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.
