Biography
Kyra came from a situation that she needed to be removed from and was put into our program.  She lives in a foster home with one adult and no other animals.  Krya is an absolute love bug with a lot of spunk and a dog that has quite the personality.  She wants nothing more than to be your companion, but fully understands you need to make a living to give her the finer things in life!

Whatever your activity, Kyra is up for it:  walks, rides in the car, running errands with you, playing fetch, or sitting and enjoying laying at your feet while watching TV.  She loves to be outside and play, but wants to do so with companionship.  On hot days, her favorite thing is to submerge in the cool-water-filled kiddie pool.  One of her favorite toys is a Jolly Ball.  If you are not careful, she may bang it into your leg to get your attention to play with her.

Kyra has been nothing but a perfect angel in her foster home.  She is completely house and crate trained, Kyra-655has never been destructive, would never dream of climbing on the furniture, and prefers her dog bed for napping.  Kyra also enjoys having her crate and is most comfortable going to bed at night there.  If it is time for bed, and her foster parent is still up, she will put herself to bed (just walks into the crate and goes to sleep).  She can be extremely affectionate with giving you kisses.  She loves nothing more than to be patted and touched.  Although when she first arrived in her foster home, she had some reservations about being touched, but has overcome this issue.

When meeting new people outside the home, Kyra is very friendly, especially when they are giving her treats.  When meeting people in the home, she is more cautious, but will warm up to them once introduced to them properly.  Once Kyra knows you, she wags her tail and is happy to see you.  She will go to you, let you pat her, will run to the foster parent and run back to the known visitor for more pats.

When Kyra is meeting new dogs, she has no problem, but has not been permitted to Kyraengage in play with any dogs, just walks with them, and meets them at different places like the vet’s office, groomer, etc.  Her play can be rough and she likes to chase, especially after the bunnies and birds in her yard.

During Kyra’s time in her foster home, she started to show an irritation with one of her eyes.  After having it checked by a regular vet and then an eye specialist, we learned that she had an ulcer on the cornea that needed to be surgically removed.  Kyra is now on steroid therapy and has a recheck, so once approved by the eye specialist, she will only need her eye to be examined annually by a regular vet.
