This little dog has been in foster for us for some months now. She is 19 months old and arrived back in October 21. Like so many of these crosses - Lyra was proving too much for her owners with some of the typical resource guarding.

Our lovely friend and trainer Sarah has been working with her for this time and feels that the time is now right for her to find her forever home.

She says .... Lyra is super crazy Cockapoo! Never has her feet on the floor and jumps up a lot... she then doesn’t like it if you reach out to touch her collar, will back off. She can be 'grumpy' and needs a home who know and understand the behaviours. Her resource guarding is only occassional now so massive improvements.

She is dog friendly but again better with calm than too much excitement. She is easy to walk with lots of other dogs but she will begin on two paws, barking and grabbing the lead. She can jump to shoulder height but will settle down after a few minutes.

Lyra still needs some training. She’s a sweet loving dog and calming down all the time but still one of the craziest Cockapoos I’ve ever met.

Lyra still has certain things she doesn’t like, mostly around handling her, putting her in small space eg boot of the car etc so again all down to management. She is good as gold at the groomers.

This complex little girl will really benefit from an active and knowledgable home and deserves to find her perfect home. Please ONLY apply if you feel you have the understanding to live with and love and enjoy this little lunatic.
