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.

17-02-20 Calanda is a 7 year old ex breeding pug cross who has come to us to find her forever home. Calanda is very timid and shy at the moment. She is currently too nervous to be handled but takes great comfort from being in her bed, which she loves and from being around other dogs. For this reason she will need a kind resident dog or dogs in her new home, to take her under their wing and help her confidence grow. She will also learn about house training and lead walking by following their example. Calanda is an inquisitive girl but at the moment she is just too worried to investigate. Calanda will need a home with someone who is experienced with scared dogs. With time, love and patience she will soon start to let her guard down and start to come out of her shell.

Calanda is such a nervous girl who just shakes and clams up when anyone goes near her. Once you pick her up, she is so tense and tries to jump down and get away. As she is still so scared this little beautiful girl will need a quiet home without children. She will need a kind resident dog or odogs in her new home to help her settle and build her confidence. She will need someone who will be patient and help her develop and learn how to live in a home and walk on a lead. If you think you could help and home this wonderful girl, please come and meet her.

As you can see Calanda really likes to be in her bed with her other puggle friend (she’s the girl at the back) She still is very nervous as it’s sometimes hard for dogs to progress at the kennels. She does really look like she just needs a hug and hopefully we can give that to her soon.
We have started putting a harness on her so hopefully we can build her confidence by taking her out, she’s just getting used to the feel of it at the minute but hopefully she will be able to go on little walks sometime soon.
I think this girl would be a lot better off in a foster or forever home, somewhere she can hide but also learn that nobody will ever hurt her and we all just want to give her some loves to make her forget her past. Hopefully that special someone will come soon for her as she really really needs it.

Meet Calanda, as you can see she is very scared at the moment but will allow you to stroke her. She has come on so much from when she came in when it was very hard to handle her to now where I can pick her up. Harness training is still early doors but it's coming along and she will still need another dog in the home to help her learn new things so please help us find her forever home.

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.
