14-11-2019 Rufus is a male ex breeding Bichon who has come to us from a breeder.  He has gone straight to a foster home and they will update about him shortly.  Rufus will need a home with at least one other dog to help him learn about life as a pet and this will also help him with house training and lead walking.

10-01-20 UPDATE

Rufus is a really sweet little boy. He loved Christmas presents, loves toys, is confident in the house, but very nervous out, we have just started him on walking on a lead. Rufus loves other dogs. Toilet training is on going. I really, hope someone will give him a chance.

10-03-20 UPDATE

Cant believe this boy is still waiting, he is such and easy going boy. He now loves his walks, even likes a little paddle in muddy puddles. He also has a little strange quirk, he likes to stand on his back legs, front legs up against something (like you see in American police programs when they say arrest someone), to go to the toilet! He really is a sweet little boy.



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.
