About Me

Lyra is one our Canidrome survivor seniors. These photos were taken in April 2019 but she is still with us. The young and the old went out to homes quickly but the ones that were more of a middle age have stuck.

Lyra is 9 years old and is the tiniest little greyhound girl I think I have ever seen she is more in between whippet and small greyhound size. Lyra was a very unsure worried little girl but now is miss personality plus and has flourished. She most definitely needs a home with another Greyhound in and she would prefer a male. She can be a bit worried by other dogs but she absolutely adores the big greyhound boys here and is so over the moon to great them and walk with them now. We will not consider a home as an only dog for Lyra as its simply not right for her, she relies on a companion to keep her assured everything is okay.

Lyra is a doll, she adores her humans and any home would need to work hard to bond her with the other dog as a companion so she did not get stressed when left so ideally a home with someone around most of the time would be best. She is clean in her kennels and she walks like a dream on lead, she also travels fabulously. She can not be rehomed with cats but could be rehomed with dog savy children 6 years and upwards. Having started shy with them she now quite likes them.

Do not be fooled by Lyra's age. She is full of life, loves to run and play with toys and is a mischievious little imp.

Knowing the hell these babies survived out in China we really do want to see them on their own sofas. No matter how happy and settled Lyra is here and she is she loves her life but there is a better life out there for her full of sofas and toys and a family.

Lyra is vaccinated, kc vaccinated, de flead, de wormed, has received a dental and is chipped and spayed. Lyra is currently in Stoke on Trent but can be rehomed nationally subject to a successful homevisit being carried out and all immediate members of the family and current dogs travelling to meet with her.
