Many of the dogs rescued by Kyrenia Animal Rescue (KAR) are Cyprus Poodles or include that breed in their makeup. Margaret of KAR has christened them all Cyprodoodles, and many are looking for loving new homes.

Here’s the background on just four of these lovely dogs — all young adults — who’re currently being looked after at the KAR rescue centre. If you have room in your life for a Cyprodoodle, visit the KAR website rehoming page or contact KAR.

Flopsy came to the shelter last September with a burnt mouth, but has made a full recovery. She shadows people she likes and always tries to go home with them! She's a very loyal dog.

Friendly Isa was left at the shelter in a box three years ago. The staff have nicknamed her 'Pogo' as she jumps up and down on her back legs, as though on a pogo stick!
