21-03-2021 Lyric is a beautiful but very worried little dog who has come from her breeder to find a loving home. She has never seen beyond her breeders so the world must seem a scary place to her right now. She is a little overwhelmed and is very reliant on her kennel friends for support. She will need a kind resident dog in her new home to help her adjust to home life and learn all about house training and how to walk on a lead. Lyric does not know how nice people can be or how much love we have to offer her. With some time and patience she will settle and begin to enjoy her new world. Lyric is looking for a calm and quiet home without children as they would overwhelm her at the moment. Lyric has a beautiful soul and just needs a chance to shine

27-03-21 UPDATE 
I’ve been working with Lyric since she arrived and unfortunately I’ve hardly made any progress with her. She’s absolutely terrified of everyone and it’s absolutely heart breaking to have to witness. She completely freaks out whenever I try to get near her and will mess herself.
Lyric is going to need an experienced, adult only home with people who will show her a whole lot of patience, kindness and support. I think it’s going to take her a long time to gain confidence, so whoever adopts her will need to understand that there won’t be a change in her overnight. Having ex-breeding experience or experience with very scared dogs will be essential to adopt Lyric. She’s been kennelled with a range of different dogs and she’s been absolutely fine with all of them.
She relies completely on her kennel friends, and without them she would completely shut down. It’s absolutely essential that Lyric is homed with a resident dog or dogs, to help her overcome all of her fears. She’s never lived in a home before, so she’ll need to learn the basics such as house training and lead walking. Lyric won’t eat if she can see me, she’ll hardly make eye contact with me, and she’ll do everything she can do get away from me. She is extremely scared and is looking for a special home to help her. I’m being completely honest because her future owners will need to know what to expect. If you think you could help this poor soul, please apply for her.

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.
