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.

23-01-2020 Minty is a 5 year old ex breeding Shihtzu Cross who has come to us to find her forever home.She has a very undershot jaw which means she has a permanent smile of lovely bottom teeth on display. She is a timid girl, but will settle in your arms when held. She doesn't yet walk on a lead, so will need some training, along with another resident dog. She will need kind new owners to help her settle into her new home, and that will help her with house training and understanding how living indoors works. She will soon work it all out and realise how wonderful her life has become, thanks to you

25-02-20 UPDATE
Minty has settled in to home life in her foster home very well. She interacts well with all the resident dogs and she is very intelligent and learning quickly. She loves to play (especially with squeaky toys) and plays "fetch" with gusto. She sleeps all night with no problems and is now house trained also. I am going to start lead training her this week.

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.
