Tyra is a silly little 6 month old Lab mix who loves to play in water, and loves to romp with other dogs. Tyra was named after the supermodel, Tyra Banks, because when we rescued Tyra she was in horrible shape, emaciated and with severe hair loss from mange, and we knew that she would be stunning once she was healthy. And look at her now, with that shiny, beautiful coat! She’s a funny little acrobat and we have jokingly nicknamed her “monkey foot” because of her ability to climb just about anything, including a chain link fence. She doesn’t climb out to escape, she just climbs out to be with us if she sees us outdoors, but she will definitely need a 6’ no-climb fence in her new home. Tyra gets along well with other dogs, but does initially react when first meeting until a sufficient amount of sniffing can be done. Once she’s been properly introduced, she will play all day long. Tyra did meet our cat and didn’t show the sufficient amount of respect, so the kitty had to give her a little lesson. Now Tyra treats the kitty nicely, so we think she could live with a cat in the home. Tyra has received all age-appropriate vaccinations, has been microchipped, and is current on heartworm and flea preventatives, and she will be spayed before going to her new home. She is available for a $250 adoption donation, and if interested in Tyra, please download an application from our website, www.twistedbranchaussies.com, and submit it to the email address on the form.
