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.

Dory is a beautiful but very special little Boston Terrier puppy. She has not been sold by her breeder as she is very undersized with a domed shape head and a soft spot where her skull has not closed properly yet. Her eyes are very wide set and bulging so she is a very special, fragile little puppy. Dory has been in foster for a few weeks now and is doing well considering her limitations. 
Dory needs to be very carefully looked after and needs to be fully supervised at all times, or placed somewhere very safe and soft if you need to take your eye off her. This is because she is a busy pup who wants to race and explore like other pups but we need to keep her safe as she is prone to hurting herself by bumping into things where she can catch her eyes or the soft area of her head. She has a lot of damage to her eyes already. 
We have been speaking to a lovely lady named Beth who has created Dory a little helmet which we have added a halo visor to which we hope will guide Dory and help her to play more safely and freely. 
Dory will need an adult only home where there is someone who can be her guardian angel and help her to live as full a life as possible. Dory loves to be cuddled, loves to explore (don't be fooled, this tiny girl can climb, jump and run!) and gets huge pleasure from eating and playing. 
We do not know what the future holds for Dory and her adopter will need to be able to understand that she is unique and may need to see the vet often. Taking on Dory isn't for the faint hearted but you will be amazed at how very quickly you fall in love with this 650g tiny pup. She has so much personality and love to give and she needs you to be the one to guide her, love her and keep her safe for as long as she is here... but be prepared that your heart may have to break sooner than it should if her medical issues overcome her in the future. 

 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.
