PLEASE READ MIMI'S UPDATES IN FULL BEFORE CONSIDERING APPLYING FOR HER

10-02-21 Mimi is an absolutely striking looking Weimaraner who has come to us from a breeder. She is still a baby really and is finding it a little overwhelming to be here at the moment, which is understandable as it's a big change for her.
Mimi has a Grade 4-5 heart murmur, and she really should see a specialist to have this investigated further. We are hoping to find an amazing adopter who will fall in love with Mimi and be in a financial position to get her the referral and any treatment she may need but this will be very costly but she is truly wonderful and really deserves it. 
With time and love, she will soon start to blossom and come out of her shell. She is a really beautiful girl who is very sweet and gentle. She is a beginner on lead walking, but it shouldn't take her too long to master. Mimi has never lived in a home before, so will need a kind resident dog in her new home to show her the ropes and help her settle in. Her adopters will need to be kind and patient as she learns new skills like house training. 
If you are interested in adopting Mimi please email us at info@manytearsrescue.org

Mimi is booked into see heart specialists at Langfords Vet, Bristol on the 1st March, fingers and paws crossed they are are able to fix her broken heart..
Mimi's settled in well and living alongside my own three dogs plus another foster.  She's cautious out on walks but happy to say hello to neighbors friendly dogs. Mimi sleeps in a crate at night in the same room as my dogs but is an early riser, during the day she loves to explore the garden then snuggle up to any of mine, even clambering over them to fit in the smallest space.
Mimi's ideal home would be with another dog/s, one that will have a little play but will also allow her to share a bed with them.  She needs a steady roll model and walking companion as she gets comfort from walking with one of my own dog.  She's also a very gentle girl with people who loves having a fuss.
Mimi's owners would benefit from having experience of rescue dogs, at the moment she is very underweight but she will grow into a large dog who will need plenty of boundaries set. Whoever adopts this beauty will be very lucky she's like a flower waiting to blossom.

04-03-21 UPDATE
Mimi's tests at Langfords Vets in Bristol have now been completed, she has been diagnosed with "Ebstein anomaly - a form of tricuspid valve displaccia" in short a life shortening condition that cannot be addressed by either an operation or medication. Anyone considering adopting Mimi should first consult their own vet for advice before filling out the application as this is not a medical condition that is insurable.
At the moment Mimi is not showing any signs of her heart problem ie :- swelling of the tummy, breathing problems, lethargy or coughing, she is living life here at the moment like any normal pup.
Mimi is still very thin, she is having 3 meals a day plus treats but is still a scavenger around the garden, she will stand by the back door to be let out to toilet, she loves to curl up with one of my own dogs, and can be quite playful at times, she enjoys her walks but needs a steady companion.
Any prospective applicant would need to be realistic about the outcome whether it be two months or two years, in a financial position to fund any future medical bill (at present there aren't any) Someone around most of the day, but most importantly a very steady dog/s, one that will play with Mimi but also let her know when playtime is over, will allow her to share their bed and curl up very close to her as she does get comfort from my own dogs regarding rest time.
In foster we are treating Mimi like any other pup, her condition we can't change we can only make her future for whatever time she has as normal as possible...

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.

ADOPTION DETAILS
 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.
