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.

01-10-19 Zoey is a 4 year old ex-breeding westie. Zoey unfortunately isn't as confident as her friends so will need a little bit more time to come out of her shell. Zoey doesn't walk on a lead yet and won't know anything about house training so will need a kind resident dog in her new home to help her with this. Whilst Zoey is slightly nervous she is calm and easy to handle so we're hopeful that she'll soon come around to us.

09-10-19 UPDATE

Zozzle and Zoey are four year old Westie girls who arrived in foster with us in Castleford, West Yorkshire yesterday. They travelled well together in the car and are embracing life in a foster home.
Zozzle is amazingly confident and is friendly, waggy and loves people. She will happily take treats out of my hand. Zoey is more nervous but is incredibly close to Zozzle. With Zozzle’s encouragement she is getting braver and because Zozzle will let me stroke her, so will Zoey.
She jumped on the settee today because her friend Zozzle did, and takes reassurance from Zozzle all the time.
Having fostered a number of Westies and fostering two at once, it is rare I have seen this kind of bond. I think if Zozzle was adopted without Zoey, it would be detrimental for Zoey. Therefore Zozzle and Zoey are up for adoption as a bonded pair. They get on well with our other dogs and they can be adopted to a forever home with or without a resident dog (there need not be a resident dog because Zozzle is so confident.) Zoeys right hind leg is a little shorter than her left leg which reduces the motion in her hip joint but this does not seem to hold her back at all.
Can you offer a forever home to a loving pair of Westies who simply adore each other and are best friends? If so please complete the application form.

(I have told Zozzle and Zoey they are at the groomers on Friday which they are looking forward to! They will then look very different from their current look!)

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.
