17-02-20 Grin is a 5 year old labrador who has come to us from a breeder to find her forever home. Grin is a gentle but timid girl so she will need to go to a home with another kind dog or dogs, who will be her friend and show her the way. Grin has never lived in a home before, so home life will be very new to her, but having a resident dog to follow will help her learn all about house training and other skills. Grin is a very clever girl and has already learned to walk on a lead. She is looking for a quiet home where she can relax and enjoy her new life and recieve lots and lots of love.

Today was my first day properly meeting Grin the Lab and what a warm reception she gave me! Although she can be a bit cautious, which is understandable given the rough start in life that she had, she still chooses to greet any new people she meets with a great big smile. Grin isn't all that bouncy and energetic as some labs are so she could be suited to a more relaxed home environment with a slower pace of life. Grin has been trained to walk on a lead but she does have moments where she can be a bit hesitant as if she's suddenly forgotten how to walk on a lead, this is something that'll soon be corrected with a bit of positive reinforcement. Could beautiful Grin be the one?? Could she make a great addition to your family?? Please take the time to fill out and application if so!

Grin is a lovely girl to meet and very happy! I separated her from her male lab kennel mate to take some pictures and she went quite shy, it was sad to see that she was a bit scared of the teddy I gave her. So I gave her a treat which she took so gently from me, so I gave her a few more. We have learnt that Grin is more comfortable with a male kennel mate and she will still need a resident dog in a home to help her become more confident. She rarely barks and is no trouble to look after, she is all in all a gorgeous girl who I hope gets a home soon.

Meet Mark and his project dog Grin! She is a lovely little lab but unfortunately she does get a bit nervous of people at the moment. She will need another dog in her new home to be her friend and help bring her out of her shell. At the moment she is looking for a home with a male dog as she isn't that comfortable with smaller or female dogs, but this is something we are working on with her.

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.
