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.

31-03-21 Chief has come to us from a home and is looking for a very specific home with people who are very experienced with dogs of a similar background.  Chief is a trained protection dog, who has been used as a guard dog.  He was trained in Germany and knows German commands but has learned "come", "down", "sit" and "heel" in English.  Any adopter must understand we will need to be assured of their experience and capabilities or owning a dog like Chief.
Chief loves the people he trusts and we are told that he is very good in the house. He will need a calm home with someone who has access to their own land for him to run and play in. He will always need to be kept on a lead in public areas as he has been protection trained.
We will be looking for an adult only home for Chief, with no visiting children and no other animals.

Behind Chief's fierce exterior is a soft, playful, loving, regular dog. He enjoys playing fetch, going for long walks and has become very affectionate with certain staff members. However if he wanted to overstep, he certainly could and he requires experienced owners who will be able to read him, exercise him thoroughly and deal with his energetic and intelligent personality.
I played with Chief a lot today, he loves it, he chases toys in the sand and when he gets super excited he rather strangely enjoys running in between your legs over and over... However he's not too great at bringing things back whilst playing fetch and we have also learned that he can be very possessive over his toys. He is non-reactive when walking with other dogs and I have walked him in close proximity to dogs of varying sizes and genders but we would not home him with a small dog. He walks very nicely and despite what most would think upon seeing him he really isn't too strong on his lead.
We were told Chief is very good in a home and with the right new owners, he is going to be a magnificent, obedient and loyal companion. He is looking for a home as an only animal, without children and ideally without many visitors.  

 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.
