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.

12-11-18 Candle is an ex breeding Cocker Spaniel. She is a nervous girl and a little overweight at the moment but with gentle intrduction to exercise and some good food she will soon be in tiptop condition.  She hides at the back of her kennel when we approach and try to pick her up but does allow us to handle her.  We have no doubt that she will blossom into a fantastic loving cocker in time she just needs to relax and work out that cuddles are good.  She will need another dog in her new home who she can copy and learn new skills like housetraining and walking on a lead from. Candle needs to be rehomed where other dogs are larger than she is as she is so insecure she doesnt do well around small dogs at the moment

So today I had the pleasure of working with this lady. She's a beautiful sweet girl She is a waggy happy girl in her kennels with her friends.
Gives a little bark when she's excited, As if to say " I am here, love me!!"
She loves to race around the yard having fun and total enjoying herself However when you go in the kennels to greet her she does back away a bit. 
Candle is happy to be stroked and she will sit there to have some fuss. She is still a nervous girl but this will come in time when she trusts us humans.
She so wants to be fussed. As soon as you leave kennels she's back by the gate all happy.  Today we went into the gardens to have a smell about and smell the air but bless her she just froze, unsure what she was supposed to be doing.
We managed a few lovely pictures but she didn't want to move - so Candle does not walk on the lead as of yet. This is something we will help her along with.
She will need another confident resident dog who is bigger than her to show her the ropes and someone that will be patient with her. I don't think it will take long once she trusts. She's a real pleasure to be around and so deserves her forever home

Recently I have had the pleasure of working with Candle, what a sweet girl she is but she has got some sad little eyes!
She walks great on a lead so today we went out for a nice walk, I must say she was a very good girl when I asked her to wait she just sat down and waited for me to carry on, she loves belly rubs so much so that in the middle of our walk she layed down for one, she is such a lovely girl a little shy at first but soon comes out of her shell. She is looking for a home with a larger male dog or in the right home she could go as an only dog.
Candle hasn't had a good start to life so she is looking for a home where she can finally be happy to have the life she deserves a nice warm bed, a home to call her own and a family to give her all the love she could need.

How is this pretty girl still waiting for her forever family?
She is very loving and sweet.  Just look at this face!!!  Can you be the family to make her dreams come true?..



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.

The adoption fee for an adult dog (6 months and over) is £220 and for a puppy is £250, However if the dog has a passport you will be given this when you adopt and we ask for a further £20 to help us buy a passport for another dog. You will find a break down of what the adoption fee covers under our Adoption Procedures (see link below) 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.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
