10-02-20 - Anthea is a lovely 6 year old Shih Tzu who has come to us from a breeder to find her forever home. Anthea is such a sad little lady right now. She has found herself in a strange new environment and is not sure why she is here. We will give her all the love and care that we can but this little girl really needs to be in a home to start her new life. Anthea is unsure of the world right now as she is not sure what us humans are all about. Anthea will need another kind dog or dogs in her new home to help show her the way and teach her all about home life and skills like toilet training and lead walking. We're sure with some love and TLC she will soon blossom in to the girl she should have always been.

29-02-20 UPDATE
Anthea is a very scared girl who is worried by her own shadow. She finds comfort in my own pack of friendly dogs massively. Her house training is going OK but she will still pee in the house at times and may take a little more time to learn. She's not walking at the moment as she's way too scared but her progress is slow and steady. Sometimes dogs just take a little longer to bloom and we need a little more ppatience.

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.
