Lyra is an adorable 2-year-old pocket pitbull at just under 40 pounds. Lyra was a stray who had puppies that she lost, and came to us very scared. She is very fearful of other dogs, not surprising giving all the bites she had on her ears when she arrived.
Lyra has spent the last several months in foster care and she is just an absolute heart-warming girl. Not only is she small and adorable, she is sweet, friendly, and affectionate to ALL people, men and women, old and young, and great with kids. She is not, however, good with dogs. The rescue is has been working to mediate this via training. A savvy dog handler can walk her around other dogs and manage her reactions, but she has yet to shake the mentality that she is going to be attacked by other dogs, resulting in barks and lunges to keep them at bay. It is all fear-based, as this little spitfire will do it to dogs 3x her size! Lyra will need an owner who is comfortable handling this little fearful girl outside the home and working to build her confidence, or just enjoying her in the home. Aside, Lyra is healthy, happy, house-trained, spayed, and up to date on all vaccinations. She will make a wonderful addition to a savvy family.
Adoption Info: Lyra's adoption fee of $450 covers the spay/neuter, all vaccinations, microchipping, health certificate, boarding, and transportation costs from California to Seattle.
