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.

21-12-19 Molly Mae is a gorgeous 4 year old ex breeding Labrador that has come to us to find her forever home. Molly is a very nervous and flighty girl, who just wants to get away from us as she has no clue why we would want to interact with her. She will need time and patience to come out of her shell, and will need another resident dog to live with. MollyMae has never lived in a home before so will not be house trained or walking on a lead. This girl is so special. We can see her innocent soul and all her potential beneath a cloak of fear... we hope you can see it too and give her the help she needs to shed her worries and stand tall.

MollyMae is a very nervous girl at the moment and along with Deidre they both are a little unsure of people. Molly is getting used to following her kennel friends in and out of the play yard throughout the day which is a massive step but she is a beginner at walking on a lead. Yesterday was the first day that felt like the right time to see what she's like out with another confident dog and she was very unsure with the whole situation she found herself in. There were moments where she was okay and happy to follow Daisy but any slight change of direction or speed was unsettling for her. Molly's confidence will improve with patience and time but she will be lost without another dog at home for her to learn from so please bear this in mind if you would like to apply for her. Molly is a very sweet girl and just needs someone special who can show her a life of love that she is not yet used to.

MollyMae has started to become a little bit more confident while out walking with a friend close by and her tail is not firmly wedged underneath her now but it's not an enjoyable experience for her yet. She is still a very nervous girl and prefers not to interact with people if they come over to meet her. It's so sad to see her retreat to a corner and tuck her face down and away from you when you try to comfort her.
The profile picture of her above is how she reacts when you get close to her. Her best friend Deidre left for foster yesterday morning so she is now looking for a new bestie, who will hopefully be the one she shares her new home with! It's going to take time and patience for Molly to start to trust us humans, but a home environment is going to be what she desperately needs and it will do wonders for her. She really won't be the same girl. I spent some time with Molly in an empty kennel the other day and just tried to stroke her and reassure her. She did her best not to look at me though and pretend she wasn't there. She's very lost at the moment in this new world. Please let us know if you think you can help her with the right home. In the video MollyMae is the one with the red collar and appears later on, from the right.

Molly-mae, known as May in our house, came to us very timid and scared. Over the past few weeks, her confidence around the house during day to day activities has improved, and now will come into the house if you call her name ‘May’.
Her main weakness is trusting people, we still find that she won’t take any treats off of us, will run away if we try and approach her and needs to be cornered to put on her harness to go for walks. She will also cower to the floor if she feels insecure.
Besides this, her worried behaviour turns into a bundle of excitement at breakfast and dinner time, and when we come downstairs in the morning, and from when returning to the house after being out. May would love to be with someone who has endless time for her, so she can build her trust in humans, as well as this, she would prefer an adult only home in a rural area.
We have enjoyed taking May on walks in the local woods, parks and the beach and have found she does not like anyone to walk behind her and isn’t comfortable walking in busy areas.

May’s strengths:

  • Non destructive
  • Will come into the house if you call her name ‘May’, but you have to give her space
  • Very good with dogs of all sizes
  • Completely house trained, never any accidents
  • Quiet in the house
  • Sleeps well at night, but not comfortable in a crate of any size
  • Is a typical Labrador and loves her feeding times
  • Confident with usual household items: Vacuum+washing machine
  • Travels well

Although she still has a few weaknesses that we are working on her with, as mentioned above, May has improved leaps and bounds since she has arrived. She is a pleasure to have around, and we have enjoyed seeing her progress. In time, we can see that she will be an excitable and social dog, as she is very nosy and wants to join in.

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.
