Wywylwynd Adhara



Adhara is a black bitch standing 23" tall. A poodle should have the heart of a lion and the reflexes of a cobra. Adhara has both these things, but she also sometimes has the brain of a hare! She has a wonderful loving, loyal nature and is motivated and fun to work with. Adhara is squarely proportioned and beautifully angulated with gorgeous dark eyes. We started training together for agility soon after her second birthday. In 2017 we started competing.

Adhara aged 6




Adhara (the H is silent) is the name of a bright star in the constellation Canis Major ('big dog'). It comes from an Arabic word meaning 'maiden'.


Adhara had a litter of five lovely puppies in 2018, which included her daughter Pandora. It is unlikely Adhara will be bred again, and will instead return to doing agility and being a bedwarmer.
