If you’re looking for a calm, easy-going dog who’s likely to walk into your house and make herself right at home, check out our Tyra. She’s a 5 year-old Lab mix who was pulled from a shelter last spring and was a staggering 30+ pounds overweight. She spent the last 6 months in a foster home before coming to Canine Lifeline to find herself a permanent new home. In her previous foster home, she shed the extra pounds and got down to about 36 pounds which was a bit too thin for her frame. Now that she’s with us, Tyra is working on a gaining a few more pounds to put her at her ideal weight of about 45 pounds. She loves to eat so she should be in tip top shape very soon. Her new family will then need to keep her on a healthy diet and exercise program to help her maintain her ideal weight. Tyra gets along well with other dogs so might enjoy having a calm canine pal or two in her new home. She plays with her fellow foster dogs a little bit but isn’t overly playful. She might also do fine as the only dog in her new home provided her family has lots of time to spend with her. Tyra has excellent crate manners and is likely to be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Tyra. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age.
