24-01-2020 Chick is an ex breeding Bichon who is ready to find her forever home. She is a little overwhelmed at the moment which is understandable as she has never been beyond her breeders before. She will take time to learn about her world and will need the company of a kind resident dog to help her settle and show her new skills like housetraining. She is a darling little dog who is sweet and gentle, she just needs some time and patience to help her adjust to her new life and begin to shine. Chick has her own passport which states she is 5 years old but we believe her to be more around the age of 3. 

23-02-20 UPDATE

Chick is a lovely, affectionate bichon. She’s learning all about living in a home, and is getting on great with the other dogs and humans here. She loves a cuddle and will get as close as possible, although nervous at first she’s fine once she’s realised you’re not going to hurt her or grab her. She is not yet house-trained, although will follow the others outside to see what’s going on. She’s not yet walking on a lead, and is practising with her harness and lead in the house and garden. Her ideal home would be one with at least one other dog and person around most of the time as she enjoys company.

08-03-20 UPDATE
Chick has been here for four weeks now and in that time has blossomed. Despite her start to life, she’s jumping at her new one with all four paws. She’s a super companion and makes me laugh every day with her funny antics. Lead walking is coming on a treat - she’s really getting the hang of it and loves being out and about although can still be scared by unexpected noises. No problems in the car, she’ll even jump in on her own and sit patiently waiting for new adventures. Her ideal home will have someone who’s around most of the time, plus at least one other dog to help her to bring out her full potential. She’s wonderful and someone will be very lucky to have her in their lives.

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.
