07-11-2019 - Isabella is a very scared girl who has come to us from a breeder. She does not like to be picked up and she can be easily startled. Isabella will need an experienced home that has at least one onther kind resident dog to be her friend and show her new skills like house training. Her new home will need to be a calm quiet environment t without children o help her her confidence with people.

04-05-21 UPDATE

Isabella has been waiting for her forever family to find her for over a year now which is extremely sad. She is a very special girl who deserves and needs to find a very special family and home. She will be a project dog for her future adopters. She is a very special girl with particular needs. She needs to be homed with a larger playful, but laid back dog, who is used to, and likes smaller playful dogs. Her adopters will need to have had experience with very frightened ex breeders - those difficult to handle.
Isabellas adopters will need to be fully aware that she is exceptionally difficult to groom and currently has to be sedated at the Vets to be groomed. Her new owners will need to continue her counter conditioning in regards to this.
Isabella is a small shihtzu with the biggest of personalities! When she eventually learns to trust, she is the most loyal, loving, fun, hilarious, playful girl in the World.
Isabella has had many applications over the last year but she really is looking for a very specific, very experienced home. Sadly unless you have the right environment for this little dog we wont be able to proceed with your application but if you do then please include as much detail as you can on your application and we can then get you to discuss Isabella further with her fosterer.

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.

 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.
