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.

13-04-21 Frances is a nervous girl who has come to us from a breeder.  She is quite flightly so needs a calm, quite adult only home where there is at least one other dog to give her some confidence.  At some time in the past Frances's jaw it appears may have been broken and she will been seen by our vet to make sure everything is ok.  Frances will never have been inside a home before so this will be overwhelming at first and she is going to need experienced owners who understand her fears and who will give her the time she needs to settle and adjust to her new life.  She will need and adult only home and time to learn about house training and lead walking etc.

25-04-21 UPDATE
Frances is just one of those dogs that melt your heart. Her jaw is going to be left as it is as she copes very well and can happily chew a bone and  crunch on hard food.
Frances is a scared girl but tries very hard to be brave. This little lady needs a eye drops in throughout the day as she has dry eye.  This is not an easy task as she’s not keen on having them put in and it ideally need two people. She may have an inclusion cyst in the cornea of her eye which usually needs no treatment but may need to be addressed by an opthalmic vet in the future.
She needs a confident playful dog as she really enjoys playing. She would also love a dog to cuddle with she adores cuddling with other dogs.
Frances is living here happily with 10 other small dogs. She’s not a dog that is ready made this is going to take time and patients She would much prefer to live in a quite area. Frances is a funny little character who is going to make someone very happy, it’s just going to take time  

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.
