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.

11-03-21 Charlie originally came to us a few months ago from a home, due to some behavioural issues. He was adopted but sadly he has found himself back with us due to incidents that have occurred from guarding issues. Charlie has snapped before - so he will need an adult only home with no visiting children and an adopter who is very experienced with dogs with behavioural issues.

Charlie is a really affectionate, playful and intelligent dog – he just needs a bit of guidance and direction. Therefore an experienced dog owner is necessary. Charlies issues appear to stem from resource guarding (particularly guarding his bonded handler) and from being over stimulated during play.
Charlie will need a home with no children, and a calm consistent household where ground rules are put in place from day one – and the new owners will need to monitor Charlie’s excitement level to ensure he’s kept below threshold and doesn’t get himself in trouble.
Teaching him impulse control and keeping him nice and calm during the day is going to be vital to Charlie settling into his new home and setting him up for success.
We really wan't Charlie to find his happily ever after and we believe the right home for him, where he will thrive and succeed IS out there. If applying for Charlie, please appreciate that this dog will take a bit of work and be a project dog.
In Many Tears he has been an angel with us, is super playful and really affectionate – however it is likely that his problem behaviours won’t show until he’s in a home again.
Charlie will also need a home without any cats or small furries.

18-03-21 UPDATE

When Charlie first arrived back he didn't display any guarding issues in his initial assessment and we hadn’t seen any of this behaviour.  Charlie was very comfortable with people around food: no issues around his food bowl, happy to eat from your hand, all he wanted to do was play with the handlers.
After being on site for a few days Charlie has started to show his resource guarding issues around his food bowl. He hasn’t shown it around food being scattered on the floor, just around the bowl, even when empty.
Charlie is selective with the staff when it comes to displaying these behaviours, some staff haven’t seen any problems, while he’s been very vocal and defensive with others. We’ve implemented a training plan with Charlie which we’ll want to discuss with any prospective adopters, however Charlie should be given the space to enjoy his food without intrusion. He’s overall a lovely, friendly dog, really affectionate and loves his people. He’s very intelligent and will make a great addition to any experienced home.

Charlie is doing well here, we are working with him on his food guarding and he is responding well. We are not sure what it is he is guarding, it seems to be his bowl even when empty and we are using different methods to stop this. Charlie himself is a great playful young lad who in the right home will really blossom. If you are interested in him but put off by his resource guarding we can help and advise on this.

 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.
