Lara came back into our care recently, after being adopted for many months, given up on rather than do right by her.
Lara has been amazing in foster, her foster mum has taught her the ropes, Lara is a happy, loving girl, she lives with 2 dogs in foster, can be left alone, loves her walks, is affectionate, clean indoors and sleeps through the night.
Lara had not been neutered, even though it is part of the adoption agreement. So this will be part of a contract and needs to be completed within 2 months of adoption. Chimney Farm will pay for neutering costs.
Although she has spent a some time back in foster, Lara still needs consistency, exercise, routine. Any family must appreciate she may not be a dog that can be off lead without without investment in bonding and recall. Lara would make a great running buddy and adventurer.
Lara gets on with other dogs and is a very sweet girl.
