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.

05-10-19 Francheska is a 3 year old female Mixed breed. Poor Francheska was found abandoned and alone in a field. When she was found, she was heavily pregnant and had lost all hope. Since then, she was taken in by a fosterer, and went on to have eight puppies. Fran is an incredibly devoted mother. She is a very special girl and needs a very special and loving home to help her heal. She is much more confident when with her kennel friends so we feel she would be more comfortable having a friendly dog to be pals with in her new home. Francheska has a passport.

Francesca is an extremely frightened girl and will require a very calm and patient home.  In the three weeks she has been with me, she has spent most of her time in her crate.  This is her choice as this is where she feels most safe.  She has a real issue with food (she is very nervous about taking it and quickly runs off once she has scoffed it up!)  She then wants to go back to the comfort of her crate where she is happy to spend the rest of the day.  She is very jumpy about any noise and is going to take a long time to adjust into a home and to gain the trust of a loving owner.  If she is anxious she will just pace up and down until she can go back to her crate.
She is happy around my dogs and you can see she relaxes more in their company.  She is not house trained yet.  When in the garden she paces up and down constantly and looks terrified.  She will most times hold it and then go to the loo indoors.  This is not a behavioural issue of her being naughty you can genuinely see she is frightened of the outside world. 
She has in this short time started to learn that I am not going to hurt her and will sometimes wag her tail at me and wave her paw when she sees me in the morning, which is a great leap for her, she is just going to take some time.

Frankie is the most charming sweet natured little girl and when her fears are put to one side she is very charming and playful. She loves to jump up on the bed at night time and within minutes she is sprawled out and snoring like a little piggy.
Frankie has come on leaps and bounds with other dogs and will now happily approach and play with my dogs without showing any signs of fear. Unfortunately her fear is people related and she is still extremely scared of anyone apart from myself and my husband. She has relaxed so much around me that she will now wag her tail when she sees me and quite often roll around in her crate for a tummy tickle when I come into the room.
Frankie is still not fully toilet trained as she is so scared of the garden, but will sometimes go outside if she feels comfortable enough with the other dogs. We are working on teaching her that the outside world is not as scary as she thinks but this is an incredibly slow process.
Frankie is not yet ready to go out for a walk as any noise from the outside overwhelms her. This is also the case for visitors to the house. If Frankie sees someone new she will hide under a table. This is happening a lot less over time but we are still not at the point where she is comfortable with strangers.
It's adorable to see her when she is relaxed and she will often nestle in for a cuddle. This poor little lady has such a long way to go but she really wants to get over her fear and be part of the family.

Frankie is coming along nicely.  She is growing more and more confident around dogs and loves to play with her foster brothers. Frankie is still not house trained and she is still severely noise sensitive and so will not go out into the garden willingly. She does go out for a walk with her brothers and walks quite well, but will stop if she sees a human and try and get away. She is cuddly at night time and enjoys a cuddle on the bed before she drops off and starts her snoring routine! Frankie will sometimes approach you for a treat and will sit outside her treat drawer until she gets fed! This little lady has come on so far despite having a long way to go.  

 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.
