Tyra Needs a Home

About Tyra

My Name Is… Tyra

I Am… 6 Years Old

Can I be rehomed with other dogs? No

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? 10+ Years

I Am Looking For… A forever home



Tyra arrived at SSR as she is not getting on with the resident dog. Her owner also has ongoing mobility issues which has left Tyra without much exercise.

Recently, Tyra was rehomed, but sadly returned due to her reactivity to other dogs.


Tyra is a nervous girl and will be looking for a quiet and patient home. She will be looking for someone who can build her confidence. She is very anxious when around raised voices.

Like many dogs, she is very nervous attending the vets. Tyra takes Apoquel medication for her skin.

She is used to sleeping upstairs in the home at night.

Tyra loves playing with her ball and enjoys a good fuss. She will take treats nicely.



Tyra is not social with other dogs. She is generally fearful and worried upon meeting with other dogs.



I am looking for:

  • A foster or forever home
  • A pet free home
  • A home where children are over 10 years and understanding to respect Tyra’s space when she is nervous.

Do you have a home for Tyra?

We are looking for foster families and adoptive families.

We do ask foster homes to be within an hour’s drive of Bournemouth foster homes will be expected to drive back to our vets in Bournemouth and to meet with prospective new homes.

We rehome to adoptive families within a 2 hour driving radius of Bournemouth. (maximum 2hrs,20 minutes for the perfect applicant willing to travel) Please DO NOT ask if we make exceptions further and look at other rescues covering your area if we do not.

A home check and a vet check is required, with a £250 adoption fee (or £400 for puppy adoption under 1 year), which contributes partially to kennel fees, vaccinations, microchipping, spay/neutering, flea/worming treatment and other veterinary costs. This adoption fee will contribute to the care of all our dogs.

We have a thorough rehoming programme to prepare you and your dog for each other. We also offer help and support for you both in the future. Learn about responsible ownership or contact us if you have any questions.

If you are considering fostering or permanently rehoming a dog, then please print off and complete one of the forms below:
