I'm ready for my new family!


I'm Available

Hi, I’m Hazel and I am a sweet, snuggly goofball! Everyone comments about my mismatched ears – one stands up, one flops down. My foster mom calls me velcro girl because I’m such a snugglebug. I am intrigued by snow, but NO THANK YOU to bitey windchill! I love exploring and giving surprise-attack kisses, and I have adorable twitchy dreams.

I am potty trained! I am still a puppy and can't quite hold it for eight hours yet, but I work hard to wait until I’m taken outside, and can last six hours without an accident. I go in my kennel without complaint if you throw a chewy treat in for me. I generally settle down quickly, but if you're still within sight/hearing range when I finish my treat I will  give out a little bark. At night I sleep soundly in my kennel. I have mastered “sit” and am working on “stay,” “leave it”, “up”, “down” and “shake.” I would LOVE taking a training class with you – as I love attention, treats and praise, and I am eager to meet other dogs. Since I am still a puppy, I am very into chewing on things, but I’m easily redirected if the thing isn't for me. I have a sweet prancy trot if you tell me that I’m a good girl on a walk, with grand-jetes and pirouettes to celebrate pooping! My biggest motivators are treats, praise, chew/squeaky toys, and quality time playing fetch. 

I now live with three kids and I just love them! They are between the ages of 7 months and 5 years old. I like to give them sweet kisses and they love to pet me and get me to follow them around the house. Sometimes I accidentally step on them, but I’m learning how to be gentle. I also now live with a 9-year-old pitbull. He is really great! We play a lot and then we take lots of naps. He also helps me to be brave and go outside when it’s really cold.  

Some other fun facts about me:

Why are you the very best dog in the whole world?
I am playful and curious, but also really snuggly and easy-going. I’m the best of both worlds!  And it's impossible to resist the charm of my ears!

What would your dream day consist of?
I would do lots of playing – with kids and other dogs. I’d like a nice long walk or run and then some solo time chewing a bone, a few rounds of fetch in the afternoon, and an evening full of snuggles in front of the TV before bed. If you're willing to have dogs in the bed, I would LOOOOOOOOVE to be a bedtime cuddlebug, too!

What general knowledge TV or movie character are you most like and why?
Long John Silver's parrot – I would love to sit on your shoulder if you'll let me!

What are some of your favorite toys?
I really love chewing on bones and other chew toys. I also love squeaky toys, soft plush toys, ropes, balls, really anything! 

Play all day or cuddles and snoozes?
A healthy mix of both!

What makes your body wiggle and your tail wag harder than anything?
Attention from people!

Give me a description of your dream forever family.
I would love to live with kids, or really anybody with attention and snuggles to offer! A yard would be great for extended sessions or fetch, but I'd be equally happy if you leash me up to come with you on a run. If somebody in the household is strong enough to carry me around like a baby, so much the better! Could this be you?
