This little love bug has just joined SNDOGS. His name is Lupin (from Hogwarts).

He is just 10 weeks old but has a condition called Megaesophagus which is where the pipe from the mouth to the stomach gets bigger and the muscles don’t work to move the food along.

This means he needs to have some help in eating, mainly making sure the food is the correct consistency and that he sits up to eat so that gravity can help the food reach the stomach.

Lupin has come to us as we have experience with this condition.

We are trying to stabilise his condition before he is available for rehoming.

Adoption fees & homecheck information

Re-homing is subject to a successful home check and adoption fee.

When completing your adoption application, you are required to pay a non-refundable admin fee of £11.

After receiving your application, we will contact you to arrange your homecheck.

If you have already been homechecked within the last 12 months, you do not need to fill out a new application – just email and let us know. Homes already checked will get priority.

If your homecheck was over 12 months ago then you will need to apply for a new one by completing the adoption form and paying the £11 admin fee for processing your updated homecheck.

When taking a dog on trial, adopters must pay the adoption fee. This is £300 for adult dogs and £400 for puppies. There are times when the fee will be altered.

If a dog goes on trial and is returned, the people returning the dog need to email SNDogs with bank info to claim back the adoption fee.

This will be refunded (minus a non-refundable £50 which you will have been informed of and agreed to before taking the dog on trial) as long as the dog is returned in the same condition as you received them, with no injuries, signs of neglect or abuse.

Please ensure that the full donation amount is available prior to having your home check, as this avoids disappointment all round.
