17-2-20 Crumble is a very frightened girl who has come to us from a breeder.  She is very jumpy and since her arrival she has spent her time in bed with her kennel friends, too scared to come and say hello.  Crumble is very beautiful but will need another dog or dogs in her new home to help her confidence with people and who will help her learn about house training and lead walking.  She has never lived in a home so this is going to be very scary and overwhelming at first so we are looking for experienced dog owners who understand she will need plenty of time, love, patience and undestanding.  In time she will transform and your reward will be to watch her blossom into a wonderful friend.

Crumble is still quite a scared girl but after spending some time with her she will come up to you. She does loves attention, it just takes a little time. She is very easy to handle and will settle in your arms. She will need someone who has the time and patience for her and a confident resident dog to help her come out of her shell and learn all about home life. Crumble is at her happiest when around her kennel friends and loves to play out in the yard with them. Crumble is slowly learning that she doesn't have to stay in bed to stay safe which is a big step for her! All she is looking for is a home where she will find the happiness and love she deserves.

I’ve been working with the lovely Crumble for a couple of weeks now and it’s really starting to show. Her confidence has grown a lot and she’s starting to trust me a lot. She gets very excited when she see’s me - she’ll always greet me with a waggy tail - and she’s really enjoying a fuss now. She was quite hand shy when I first started working with her, but now she’ll come right up to me and head butt me for a fuss. Getting a tummy tickle is her favourite as she paws me to keep going whenever I stop, bless her.
Crumble is very well mannered towards other dogs - she’ll share her bed, toys and food with them. She’s especially close with her Beagle kennel friend as you’ll always find them in bed together or playing with toys in my yard. She is still quite reliant on other dogs, so it would be best for her to be re-homed with a kind resident dog. However, because Crumble is really starting to enjoy a fuss, her new brother or sister must not be jealous and must allow her to receive affection from their family.
Crumble is definitely confident enough to start lead training, but I haven’t had the chance because the weather here has been so bad. As soon as we get a good few days, I’ll take her out on the road and get her started. But I don’t think it will take long, she’s a clever girl and I think she’ll enjoy all the new sights and smells.
She seems to be getting over looked when people come down to visit her. I know she hasn’t got typical “butter wouldn’t melt” Beagle face, but does that really matter? What she has on the inside is all that counts, and it’s pretty special if you ask me. I’ve definitely bonded with her over the last couple of weeks, and to see her start to trust me and be so confident around me is so rewarding. I don’t think there’s a better feeling than seeing a dog blossom and letting themselves out of their shells.

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.
