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.

19-12-19 Lizzy is a gorgeous 4 year old ex breeding Maltese Cross, who has come to us to find her forever home. Lizzy has seen enough badness in her life. She needs a lot of love and attention from her new owners to help her blossom. Lizzy will need a kind resident dog to live with, as she has never had the luxury of living in a home, so will not be house trained or walking on a lead. She needs a quiet home without children as she would find them too much. Lizzy has her own passport.

Lizzy is a nervous little girl who needs a lot of time and work put into her. She doesn’t yet understand that not all humans are scary, so we’re working with her as best we can. For the past week or so, I’ve been sitting in her kennel with her for just 10 minutes or so each day, taking it slow. She will sniff my hand and she will allow me to touch her, but only very gently and only after I’ve sat with her for a while first.
Because Lizzy is so afraid of us humans, she panics when touched. Again, this is something we’re working on but we have to take it slow. She has gotten better, but it is going to take time. So because of this, we are looking for an experienced home for Lizzy with no children. She will also need a friendly and confident resident dog or dogs, to help her further. Lizzy has never lived in a home before, so having other dogs there will be a real safety blanket for her.
She’s a very sweet girl and she gets on very well with her kennel friends. She snuggles up with them in bed and she shares her food and toys. All Lizzy needs is a home where people can understand that she’s scared, and will really take their time with her. If you think you can provide this for sweet Lizzy, please fill an application form in .. or come down to meet her!

This lovely little girl has been in foster with us for a couple of weeks and the change in her is amazing to see. She's still a very timid girl when it comes to people and at the moment she doesn't like to be handled, although she will let you pick her up, she's very uncomfortable in human arms.
Lizzy doesn't walk on a lead at the moment and we think this will take a lot of time and patience to get her to as she needs to get more used to human contact first. Her house training is coming on nicely but she's no where near perfect just yet.
On the plus side her cheeky little self is starting to come through, she's starting to play with our other dogs (both big and small) and has also found her little voice. Lizzy loves her food and sleeps well through the night, she also gets on well with our cats.
Lizzy will need to go to an adult only home that has a resident friendly dog and with adopters who have had experience with very scared rescue dogs.

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.
