Elderly pooch looking for new BFF before Friendship Day

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

Crossbreed, Tyra has lived with the same family since being a puppy, but recently found herself at Dogs Trust Leeds, as her family could sadly no longer keep her.

15-year-old Tyra is young at heart, greets every day and everybody with a waggy tail and is happiest when she is playing with her two and four-legged friends at the rehoming centre.

Despite being an elderly pooch, Tyra loves a good walk and enjoys new places. She loves a fuss and cuddles but is also happy to spend time on her own to relax and rest her paws.

She loves meeting up with other dogs when she is out and about and could share her new home with a four-legged friend as well as children over eight-years old.

Emma Cooper, Assistant Manager at the York Road rehoming centre, said: “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.”
