Lara is a 1 year old female Labrador cross Shepherd Dog. She is a beautiful young dog who was found wandering the streets of Nicosia as a stray.
Lara was brought into the municipal dog pound in Nicosia by the dog wardens, but as she had no microchip she was later signed over to the shelter for rehoming.
Lara is around 20kg and her estimated DOB is 15.01.2022 so she’s still a young girl and will require continued training and socialisation in a new home environment.
We don’t know if she’s ever had a conventional home before, so adjusting to a family lifestyle will be a big change.
However, Lara is a trusting, friendly and very sweet-tempered dog who loves being around humans and we think she will thrive when settled into a family unit.
Lara is likely a mix of hound and lab (based on her appearance). She is bright, keen to please, active and playful, so would prefer a semi-rural home with a family who is keen to spend time exploring with her.
Lara would love long walks, some attention to training and mental enrichment, and a home with a garden preferably.
Lara has been getting on well with the other dogs in the shelter and we feel that she would live happily alongside another dog.
Lara is also confident enough to live as the only resident dog though. Lara has been calm around cats, but we can never guarantee this in a new environment.
We would only be comfortably homing her with cats if the family are experienced with introducing their cats to resident dogs, as this relationship can take a lot of nurturing.
Lara has only been around older children, so we’re looking for a home with kids aged 8+.
If your family have experience with dogs we may consider younger children. Lara is currently based in Cyprus and has a clean bill of health. She is ready to travel once she has a home to fly to.
