23-01-2020 Wavey is a 2 year old ex breeding Working Cocker Spaniel cross who has come to us to find her forever home. She is a very nervous girl, and will hide behind her bed from us at the moment. Wavey is a darling girl, who needs a confident dog to teach her that we mean no harm. She has never lived in a home before, so will not be house trained or walking on a lead but thse skills will come with time, patience and perseverance. Wavey just needs time to adjust and then she can start enjoying her new way of life.

Wavey is a really pretty girl whose really starting to come out of her shell and show us her true personality and character!
At playtime she will run out of her kennel and down the corridor, into the sandschool where she runs and runs, and jumps and leaps around happily and playfully - her tail in the air - she is loving life! She is very playful and has a fair bit of energy! And I think this is when she is at her happiest!
Wavey loves her toys - teddy's are her favourite! She shares them perfectly well, as she does with her beds and food.
Wavey will happily approach humans she knows well and give their hands a little kiss before backing away again! However, if we need to handle her she becomes very worried and frightened, and runs away from us, so we do still have to corner her to pick her up etc, and she can be a little jumpy.
Wavey hasn't started her harness and lead training just yet, but will begin this week. Something I have noticed is if a few days go by where I haven't seen Wavey, she tends to stand a few feet away from me sadly, but after a few consecutive days of working with her, she starts approaching me again!
Wavey would need to be homed with at least one other confident resident dog who'll provide her with the doggy company she loves and needs to become more confident and fully happy... A forever furry friend who will also show Wavey how to live in a home environment and in the real World. She gets on well with all dogs perfectly and currently lives with a female beagle, a female bichon, a female poodle and also loves my big male dog who sometimes comes to work with me!
She would like a home where she can have fun running around and playing, and  where she can burn some energy off!
Wavey is a really lovely girl, she just needs some time and patience, shown lots of love and encouragement, and she will blossom into a fabulous, happy, fun, loving lady!

This is Wavey, I met her for the first time today and she can still be quite nervous when meeting new people and wanted to run away from me at first.
She has now been fitted with a harness and is due to start harness training this week with the hopes of her being able to start going for walks and adventures soon.
She loves her kennel friends and gets on with them very well. She will need a resident dog in her new home to help build her confidence and to help her with learning about house training.
This little girl is really ready to find her forever family now, so I hope someone out there has the time, patience and love to give to Wavey so she can finally wave goodbye to her kennel and hello to her new home.

The lovely Wavey has been in foster for a week. She is a small Cocker cross, a lovely Golden colour with white markings. Wavey is still hand shy but getting better each day. What a wonderful little dog she is proving to be.  She's been 100% clean in the house from Day 1, she pops herself in and out of the dog flap as she choses. Loves the resident male Cocker and girl Puggle, she is their shadows. Eats beautifully, shares the toys, loves to get on the bed/sofa with the dogs. She sleeps on our bed and hops in her own bed as she wants, happy in a crate as well. Her lead walking has come on from a dog that laid on the ground to a girl chasing around on a long line. I cant fault her, she is timid, and needs a home that will work on her confidence, and a kind playful resident dog to carry on showing her the way.

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.

ADOPTION DETAILS

**FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION REGARDING CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 AND HOW IT IS AFFECTING MANY TEARS AND OUR ADOPTIONS PROCEDURES PLEASE CLICK HERE BEFORE APPLYING FOR ANY DOGS**
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.
