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.

26-03-2020 - Ally is a 4 year old ex breeding Frenchie. Ally is very nervous and does not like people touching her but she is happy to be around people so simply needs a little practice and she will soon learn about kindness and how lovely it can feel. Ally will need to live with another dog to help build her confidence and show her new skills like housetraining. Ally has so much potential to shine, she just needs a chance.
Ally has a passport.

Ally is one of my favourite dogs in the rescue and has been for a while ... probably because I’ve worked with her loads of times and I seem to be really drawn to her. She has made a lot of progress with me and she’s starting to build some trust with me, but it has been a long and slow process. She’s been moved to many different kennels because her friends keep getting adopted, but she adjusts well every time and we’ve not had a problem with her in regards to other dogs.
Ally’s behaviour is quite complex, and she will need an experienced owner to adopt her. She is still scared of us humans, so she will cower to the floor when we need to pick her up and handle her. However, she is very good at letting us do this and never gives us any problems. She will also come to me and sniff my hand (and sometimes give me a little kiss if I’m lucky), and she will also take a treat from my hand. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but it really is. For the past day or so, she’s also been letting me give her head a little scratch ... she’s not sure, but I don’t think it will take her long to start enjoying it.
When we leave her kennel, she will always bark and chase our legs, and we think this was a behaviour she learnt in her previous place of residence to maybe protect herself. When you tell her to stop and turn back to face her, she does stop it straight away. She’s a lot better with me than she is with other staff members, and that’s just because she knows me the best. So her new owners will need to know how to correct her, but also ensure her that nothing bad will happen to her. Because of this little “quirk” of hers, a home with no small children is needed.
Ally is extremely reliant on her kennel friends, and she always tries to stay as close to them as possible. They are a real safety blanket for her, so her new home must have at least 1 friendly resident dog. This will also help her with the basics such as lead walking and house training. As she’s never lived in a home before, these things are unknown territory for her.
She really is a sweet dog and I truly believe she will become an amazing companion. She just needs to be shown that the world isn’t as scary as she thinks, and she needs to be shown love, kindness and patience. The results will be worth while, I’m sure of it. She just needs a chance. So PLEASE consider this little girl ... she’s desperate to find her forever home.

Ally is a lovely dog who's very dependent on her kennel friends for comfort and assurance, but sadly as they get adopted poor Ally seems to stick around. Thankfully she makes friends quickly and is used to being re-kenelled with other dogs, and is making progress towards socialising with people at her own pace. Harness training is doing her a world of good as she's gotten used to the routine of putting it on and taking it off each day, and now allows me to put it on her without panicking.
I took her out on a walk today with her friend Bella. She really shines when she's alongside another dog, and would often pick up speed just so she could be next to her. Though she was nervous at first Ally quickly began to enjoy herself and was wagging her tail in delight with a huge smile on her face. Though she will take time to get used to human attention I'm sure she will settle easily into a new home with a calm owner and a resident dog for her to emulate and confide in.

Ally has been here a good few months now.. she is a very quiet little dog with a big personality. She was last kennelled with a female chocolate Labrador and Ally absolutely loved her!!! Sadly like every other dog Ally has grown close with she has also gone to her forever home meanwhile Ally is here still getting over looked.
We would love her to be rehomed with a confident furry friend as that’s when she’s happiest and really does blossom so much more with canine company. She has come a long long way since day one with the staff as to begin with she didn’t like to be handled at all and now she lets us pick her up. She sometimes does run off at first but then will stop and wait as if she’s saying “fine then, pick me up if you must”. If I go over to her she will let me stroke her and put a harness on as well.
Ally absolutely loves all food however doesn’t like to be watched when eating meals or treats. Over all she’s a sweet little dog who’s making good progress and I think she would thrive in a home environment. She is making me very sad at the minute as you can tell she doesn’t understand why her kennel friends keep getting taken away!

I've worked with Ally a few times and mainly on my own but I have yet to see her wag her tail until today. When I have fed her in the past she has run and eaten her food and then grumbled at me when I took the bowl and leave. When I clean her kennel, she either run or cowered but again crumbled when I left. The other day I tried putting a harness on which was easy as she just cowered while I did it. We then went for a walk but she refused and again just cowered. Today however, I had help from another staff member who walked Ally’s room mate. OMG what a different dog. She walked and bounced running after her kennel friend with her tail wagging and I think I saw her smiling too. It was such a please to see this other side to her. This proves she soooo needs to be a in a home environment to help her gain more trust and confidence as she has proved out of the kennel she can be such a different dog. When I put her back, she still grumbled at me but I think it’s because I put her back in to the kennel while she was really enjoying her walk and such a beautiful day.


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.
