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.

24-02-21 Kita is a beautiful Japanese Akita who needs a loving home. She has been a pet before and is very much missing being loved and cherished. She is very partial to a treat or two! Kita is a confused as to why she is now in kennels and cannot wait to be chosen to be someone's special girl. Kita is now on medication to help urinary incontinence and is responding well.
She needs a home that is knowledgable and experienced with her breed. She would prefer to be an only dog, or we may consider homing her with a larger male dog. She will need an adult only home. Kita needs patience and commitment to help her adjust to her new home and help her feel more sure of herself. She may need a refresher in housetraining but we hope it wont take long for her to bond and give her trust to someone lovely.
She has a passport

Where to start with this one?!
I’ve only known her for the 10 days she’s been at Many Tears for and wow what a girl! The love I have for this dog is so special mainly because of how scared and little she trusted us the first few days and now seeing the amazing progress she has made in such a short space of time is incredible! I am so proud of her honestly and I’m just so happy to see how happy she now is!
She walks beautifully on the lead and she isn’t reactive at all even when dogs have a little bark at her and she walks very politely in front of me but is always eager to walk quite a distance. She’s a very curious dog like most Akita’s she’s always looking around and watching the birds or stopping to stare at sheep or squirrels. She is now coming to me all the time for a fuss and attention/cuddles which is just amazing I don’t force it on her at all in fact she comes over and rubs herself against me or puts her head in my lap or paws at me for fusses which she absolutely loves and waggs her little tail off! She is happy enough to meet new people but it does take a little time for her to warm to you and be that overly friendly self that I see every day!
I’ve noticed she is slightly more weary of men but our wonderful male dog walker has started taking her out as well and she’s perfectly happy to let him so she is making progress with this. Also she is a VERY food oriented dog which works in everyone’s favour as you can win her over with treats or use them as a training tool. She knows basic commands.
Ideally we are looking for a sensible home with no other dogs. We MAY consider rehoming her with a larger male dog. She will need an adult only home with no visiting children. Experience of the breed or similar would be ideal. She arrive here with a slight incontinence problem but is on tablets for that and has responded well.  Kita may always have to be on these but she takes them in food every morning and evening without any bother.
I know Akita’s aren’t as popular as cocker spaniels or labradors but she really is a cracking girl with a lot to offer. I’ve fallen in love with her in a short space of time and I hope someone out there will give her a chance!

I’ve introduced myself to Kita a few times out in the play yard or out on a walk, and I’ve found she gets more confident around me every time. The first time I met her she approached me and had a little sniff, but that was about it. I started giving her small treats every time I’d see her, so she now wags her tail at me and runs over towards me when she sees me. Today I actually worked with her for the first time, and it’s been just lovely. She’s a very friendly girl when she’s comfortable around you - always asking for fusses and giving lovely kisses. She’s quite happy and content and often has a waggy tail when I’m around her. Her future owners will need to be patient with her, understand that they’ll need to go at her pace, and support and encourage her when she needs it. She would really love to be in a home again with people who will love her for who she is, and not give up on her.

Kita has come such a long way since she first came to us, the more she gets to know you the more confident she is, she is a happy girl and will now come up for a fuss she enjoys being around people which is amazing to see. She will need an adult only home and someone who understands that she will need time and space to come around. Kita has lived in a home before but may need a little refresh with her training.

Kita is coming on amazingly.  She's  now happy to go on long walks with more people and beams at being social! Kita is a favourite with the staff and were all sad she is still here. We think this is down to her incontinence but she is on medication and has been dry for a while now. We are hopeful this will be her last update here and the next one you will see will be a happy ending!!  

 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.
