Hi! I’m Kyra, I’m the perfect dog citizen. The gals on the dog walk all think my foster parent is a wonderful person for raising such a polite young lady but he tells them, “that’s just how I got her.” I love people but strangers don’t really interest me. I’m great with every dog I’ve met in foster so far. Reactive doggos? Ignores them. I have no time for that. I am a little bit shy of new people and situations, so I would do best in an adult-only home, or one with older kids 10+ who can understand and respect my body language. I’m quiet in the house when my people are home and love to be cared about. I would love to be able to bust out and RUN. If you take me to the river, I’ll dig out massive boulders from the riverbed and bring them back to show you.
I am looking for a family who has had some dog experience so they are prepared to help me work on my manners, resource guarding (if you have resident dogs) and my separation anxiety. I am currently on two medications called Trazadone and Fluoxetine to manage my anxiety – these may need to be continued in the future to keep me happy and healthy. The team here at CHS recommends that my future family follows up with their regular veterinarian to discuss managing my unique needs in the long term. I’m also on a special diet Royal Canin Hypo and a medication called Apoquel for my allergies – I feel so much better than I did before! It’s important that we continue with these treatments and monitor my skin.
Well, I think that’s all you need to know about me – I just know as soon as you meet me we’ll fall in love! Let the CHS crew know that you’re interested in me today! Seriously. Best dog ever.
