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.

26-1-20 Quin is a very nervous schnauzer that has made her way to us from a breeder. Quin is going to need an experienced home with another kind resident dog or dogs already living in her home.  The resident dog(s) must be willing to share their beds and cuddle up with her as she is very nervous and worried so being in a home for the first time is going to be somewhat overwhelming at first. She doesnt walk on the lead yet and has no idea about house training.  Quin really does need a lot of love and kindness so she can see not all humans are scary.  With time, love and patience these things will come so if you have an abundance of these please apply.

27-02-20 UPDATE

A month has passed since little Quin arrived with us at the centre. The progress with her has been slow, but noticeable. She remains very scared of people and is still uncomfortable being handled, however with gentle handling numerous times daily, she is improving vastly. Quin still requires a very experienced home, if handled in the wrong manor she would panic, she requires a lot of patience and a quiet environment to thrive.
Picking her up at the moment requires easing her into her bed in the corner and then using a blanket for safety in case she spooks midway through. Once in your arms, she actually settles very well, this will be happening as frequently as possible and hopefully she will improve quickly and learn to trust people. The goal for the near future once she is used to handling, will be to get her on a harness and begin to get her walking in a secure area with a confident dog.
When with her doggy friends and not humans, Quin's true, oh so cheeky self comes out, she is incredibly playful and oozes character. Quin definitely requires another dog in her new home, she relies on dogs heavily for confidence and guidance and without them she'd be completely lost. She would prefer to be homed with dogs of a slightly larger size, or male dogs of her own size or bigger, as she has been slightly selective of which dogs she takes to at times.
Quin's past has left her absolutely terrified, we are looking for very gentle, patient and experienced home to continue the great work we are doing with her here, it will be a long process, but my word will it be worth it in the end.

Quin is a 2 year old female Schnauzer who is very nervous and worried about being handled and will need an experienced home. With regular handling and whole lot of TLC, in time she will start to learn that not all humans are scary. Hopefully she will begin her harness training soon.

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 £50 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.
