An elderly dog who has found herself homeless is hoping to find a new best friend in time to celebrate Friendship Day (30 July).

15-year-old Tyra has lived with the same family since puppyhood, but ended up at Dogs Trust Leeds, as her family could sadly no longer keep her. She is young at heart, greets everybody with a waggy tail and is happiest when she is playing with her two and four-legged friends at the rehoming centre.

Emma Cooper, Assistant Manager at the York Road rehoming centre, says, “She is a really giddy, friendly girl and her tail really never stops wagging! It is difficult for all dogs when they can no longer stay with their family, but Tyra has been with hers since being a puppy so we would love her to be back at the heart of a home as soon as possible.”

Despite her age, the crossbreed loves a good walk and enjoys exploring new place. She relishes meeting other dogs when out and about and could share her new home with a four-legged friend as well as children over eight-years-old.

Emma says, “They say a dog is man’s best friend and when it comes to Tyra that’s definitely the case – she’s everyone’s friend. She is missing her home comforts and the love of a family so nothing would make us happier than if she found her Best Friend Forever before everyone celebrates Friendship Day.”

If you think you could be Tyra’s Best Friend Forever, please call Dogs Trust Leeds on 0300 303 0292 or visit him at the rehoming centre at Woodlands Farm, York Road, Leeds, LS15 4NL.
