Looking for love in just the right place? That’s Hazel: a sweet, gentle and loving girl looking for her special place with special people.   It’s not been an easy road for this bully-girl. She was surrendered by her family and when she came into rescue she had Pyometra, a life-threatening uterine infection. It was touch and go for 3 weeks, but after emergency surgery, and lots of TLC, she pulled through. Hazel also is extremely bow-legged in the hind end and has difficulty with stairs. Therefore, needs a home with either no stairs, or one where stairs can be easily blocked off.

After all she’s been through, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more precious and devoted companion than Hazel. Snuggle should be her middle name. Give her a couch and a human and she’s found her bliss. On cold winter nights, picture your cold lap, a cozy couch, and maybe even a fire in the fireplace with Hazel nestled right in next to you and you’ve found your bliss.

We are looking for a home where Hazel can be the star of the show: translated: No other dogs and no children under 13. We have no experience to see how she’d be with cats. She just craves love all day and even goes to work with her foster mom where she’s as good as gold.

Hazel’s ideal homes would be with a single person, a younger couple, adults-only, and owners experienced with short-nosed dogs. Location? Suburbs, rural, apartment, townhouse, or single-family home. However, a bustling city environment may be too much for this gentle soul.

The main thing to remember when considering adopting Hazel is her mobility issue and problem with stairs. Other than that, her foster mother says it best:

Hazel is a sweetheart, love bug, looking to cuddle. She’s had a hard life and deserves a loving, consistent home.
