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.

31-3-20 Amle is a very nervous bulldog who has come to us from a breeder.  She really will need a kind resident dog who is bigger than she is at home to help her come out of her shell. This will also help her to learn about house training and lead walking as she has no idea about these.  We are looking for an adult only home for Amle at the moment as she would find a home with children overwhelming. Amle is missing a few teeth so she will need to be fed a nice soft diet. She also has a sore eye which we are treating and some hair loss on her ears which we are hoping will soon start growing back. Should you have a lovely experienced bulldog home then please get your application form in.  Amie really needs to find a home full of love, kindness and understanding.
Amle has a passport.

Amle is still a scared little girl, I met her for the first time today and she didn't want me to touch her, she wasn't defensive, she just shook. She is kennelled with another nervous dog but what Amle needs is a confident dog to show her that interaction with humans is good. I let her out into the play yard for some sunshine and although she take treats from me, and sadly this girl doesn't yet know how to play with toys. Hopefully it won't be long before someone adopts Amle and give her the time and patience she needs and a happy future

Since Amle has been with us we have learned that she will be best homed with a bigger dog and a male would suit more. Amle is fine with other dogs but can be bit boisterous playing, she doesn't play often which is a shame as we'd love to see her relax a bit and enjoy. Amle is still nervous with humans and it will take quite a bit of tlc for her to be relaxed with us, instead of looking lost and worrying while we are around her.

I met Amle today, she is sharing her kennel with Acorn who is our resident comedian. A harness was fitted and I carried her out of kennels onto the grass to experience a glimpse of life outside the rescue. We were joined by Acorn with another staff member. We sat for a while for her to take in the sights and sounds of the outside world and contemplated how we should proceed with walking on the lead and harness - on putting this into practise, she totally refused to move. I was then left alone with two dogs, both refusing to move.
On turning to face the rescue, they both got up and walked briskly across the road, through the car park, waited for me to open a gate before proceeding and walked right back to their kennel door. Amle obviously feels safe and secure in the rescue, but this is so sad, she should have her very own family, to be someone's special girl, but until her forever family find her we will love and cherish her and show her that life can be fun. No photographs were taken on our excursion, but this is Amle afterwards in the sandschool, relaxed and comfortable in my company, what a girl.

Amie has been at the rescue for some months now, and is still worried and very unsure of human contact, and of life in general. To be honest, I feel she is a very sad and troubled girl... If you make eye contact with her, her little face and expression and her eyes will make you feel quite upset for her... Everything seems so overwhelming for her too... She just doesn't seem to know what's going on or what to do with herself or how to interact very well... It's a real shame.
Amie will come close to us humans but will not approach us for fuss and won't give our hand a lick or anything like that. She will avoid being handled and will jump in fear if we stroke her, and take any opportunity to run away from us. What is very sad, is the fact that Amie has not bonded or become close to any of us staff here at the centre.
Amie enjoys her food and is on 3 meals of chappie a day. She is interested by toys. She shares her beds well even if she does sometimes like to pull the bedding out of her and her kennel brothers bed! She does snuggle up to her doggy friends which is nice to see. At playtime Amie will run straight out her kennel and into the sandschool. She has just started harness and lead training. She doesn't really walk yet, unless it's back to her kennel...
Amie will need an adult only home with owners who have experience of scared dogs who have a few issues. For example, when you turn to leave her kennel, Amie has been known to tell staff off and try to chase them out...
Amie will also need to be homed with a dog bigger than herself who is very confident generally, as well as in himself.
Hopefully one day we will see Amies face lift, her eyes sparkle, and see her enjoy life... I'm pretty certain we won't see that here in kennels, but I'm really hoping she will find happiness once she's in a home and starts to settle.

Amle continues to make progress with her lead walking. Today she walked with a confident female cocker that she had only just met. At times she showed interest in what was going on around her and accepted being stroked. We will continue to work with her, hopefully soon she will start to enjoy her outings.

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.
