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.

21-1-20 Dafney is a has come to us from a breeder. We are told she is a cavachon but she is very much like a cavalier but as her coat has been cut short it's difficult to tell at the moment.  Dafney is a little nervous of us at the moment and will freeze when we go near her but is easily handled and will let us pick her up. She is more confident when she is with her kennel friends so will need to be homed with another friendly dog or dogs that can act as a role model for her. Dafney will not know anything about house training and at the moment does not walk on a lead, another dog in her new home will help her pick up these skills.

Daffney is a delightful little girl who is still unsure of us humans, she will attempt to get away from you but will allow you to pick her up. We will fit a harness and get her walking on a lead and help her gain confidence. She has always lived with other dogs so a home with others is a must and at this time Daffney will require experienced owners. This little girl is a project, but with care and love will flourish.

Dafney arrived on my section this week. All I saw / knew of her before, was that she was a timid lady, who wondered around her play yard looking quite worried, very sad and a little lost. She would follow her kennel friends around, and followed them when they wanted to say hello and have a little nose at me if I walked through their yard. However, if I stopped and stooped down to say hello to them all, Dafney would stop in her tracks, look surprised and would run away... She would keep a distance. I noticed how beautiful she was and hoped that one day she'd end up on my section! ... And now she has! 
I've worked with Dafney for just a couple of days and she is still worried if I approach her. When I stroked her properly yesterday, I had to corner her in a bed and she looked extremely scared... She flinched when I first touched her...Today I still had to corner her, but she looked much less scared, and a little more relaxed.
It's so nice to see Dafney happy, because most of the time she doesn't look or seem very happy. When it's breakfast or dinner, Dafney looks very happy! She IS very happy! Her eyes light up and she wags her tail, and she bounces around excitedly! It's heartwarming! For those few moments in time - leading up to her food - Dafney has forgotten all her worries and fears - She is so animated and happy!
Dafney is also happy during her kennels playtime in the sandschool! She is so happy to see her friends out and about too! She'll run over to them wagging her tail as if to say "how wonderful is this?! How wonderful is our lives right now?!", and gives all her friends little kisses! ... Little does she know her life could be so much better...
Dafney still has no idea what real, true happiness is ... She still hasn't realised that humans can be nice and kind and offer her her best life ... She still really doesn't know what life is like for a beautiful doggy like herself ...
I hope Dafney discovers all these things soon ... A loving, happy forever family, a loving, kind, confident, best friend resident dog, Etc.
Dafney will need to be homed with another more confident resident dog. She currently resides with a number of dogs, but her best friend is a much more confident female shihtzu who will be homed very soon... Leaving Dafney without a very supportive best friend ... Could you foster our beautiful, sweet, innocent girlie and help her to find her perfect forever family and forever fur baby friend?

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.
