26-03-20 Alison is a 2 year old Boxer cross who has come from a breeder. When she first arrived Alison was very scared, but she has come around a little and become quite playful with her friends. She is still very nervous around humans so will need a resident dog to help her adjust to home life and learn new skills such as housetraining. Alison is very inquistive though, so should learn quickly and should respond well to training.
Alison has a passport.

Alison is still a very worried soul, and unfortunately she hasn’t made a lot of progress. She’s definitely not as scared as she was when she first came in, which is obviously a good thing, but she’s still extremely unsure about us humans. Some dogs find it hard to progress in kennels because it’s such a busy environment - there’s always something going on, it can be very loud, and we can’t spend hours on end with the dogs (even though we want to) .. and unfortunately Alison is one of these dogs. I think she would settle a lot quicker in a home environment, so I would like to find her a forever family soon.
She’s a very sweet girl and still actually quite puppy-like. She loves to play with her kennel friend, so having a resident dog is a must for her. It would help if the dog was very confident around humans to show Alison that we’re not all bad. It would also benefit her if the resident dog was playful.
Alison is looking for experienced owners, as she really doesn’t know how to act around us humans. She clearly hadn’t had a lot of social interaction before she came to us, so she’s very unsure of us and can’t quite work us out. She’s a very sweet girl, she just needs working with. Her new owners will need to understand there won’t be a change in her overnight, and it will take time for her to gain confidence, but I do think she will progress a lot better in a home environment.
Boxers are a lovely breed to have as a pet, and I’m sure Alison will encourage this once she’s come out of her shell. So if you’ve got time, patience, compassion, and unlimited love to give, please give this lovely girl a chance. She really needs it.

Alison is a busy girl who is still scared of human touch, but she licks your fingers and runs away. She’s very playful with other dogs but she can play a little hard, thats boxers for you though. We have all heard of challenge anneka well this is challenge Alison. Everyday that I’m here I will be doing more stuff to try and make her more confident with humans. Alison needs a boxer experienced home as she’s no novice dog.

Alison is a very special girl who needs a very special home, where there’s experience and patience to help her lose the terrible fear she has of people.
It’s still difficult to get close to her, but she has recently been out for a walk with a harness and although it was very stop start she did it, which is a massive step forward in her transformation to becoming a normal pet dog.
When she does learn to trust a human she will be so loyal and give so much love back, it’s a long road to walk but well worth the journey.

I met Alison today who although was nervous of me, she did let me walk her on a harness as long as her kennel friend came with us. She took her treats from me and let me stroke her during all this. Once back in the kennel she was nervous again, so lots of practice at building her confidence in new people will be needed. She will need a home with another dog, preferably a male and of similar size. She has come along way since her arrival and is still improving so I’m sure she will make a wonderful pet one day.

So Alison is still here ... somehow!? Surely there’s someone out there that’s looking for a gorgeous, playful and puppy-like Boxer girl!
Alison is starting to progress (quite a lot actually) with the people that she knows. Lucky for me, I am one of those people. She recognises me when she sees me and she will come up to me and give me kisses. She’s also very playful with me out in the yards and I think she’d play fetch for hours if she could. She will take treats right out of my hand and happily ask me for more .. she loves her food! She’s also walking well on a harness now, but only if she’s got a doggy companion with her.
She’s still very reliant on her kennel friends and absolutely loves playing with them. So I think it goes without saying that Alison will need a confident and playful resident dog in her future home. She also loves to snuggle up to them in bed, so it would be lovely if her new brother or sister would allow her to do this with them too.
We’re also looking for a home with no children under the age of 16, just because we think younger kids would overwhelm her.
She’s been here for too long now, and I think it’s about time somebody gave her a chance. She’s progressed quite well in kennels, so I’m confident she will really come out of her shell in a home environment. She just needs to be shown that the world isn’t as scary as she thinks, and it’s ok to trust people.

-Playful resident dog needed
-No children under 16
-Scared dog experience needed

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.

 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.
