About Hazel

“My name is Hazel. I’m a shy girl who is still getting used to city life but I’m warm and friendly when I get to know you. I have a playful side that is emerging. I like to pull on Nani’s leg (resident dog)… literally… to get her to play with me! Come and meet me, I’m worth the effort!” – xo, Hazel

Hazel came to us after her puppies were ready to be on their own. She took a couple of days to feel comfortable leaving the mudroom to join the family but she warmed up quickly after that. She has taken a shine to her foster dad which is sometimes a challenge for rescues but she is equally happy with her foster mum or dad.

It took a couple of weeks of quiet living… she had just been spayed… and now she if full of bounce. She gets quite excited after going for a walk. When she’s back, she’ll have a tear around the yard and pulls on Nani’s leg until she joins in the fun. She walks really well on leash and wouldn’t take too much work, even for a beginner dog owner.

We think she was a country dog as encountering people and puppies on walks is still intimidating. She would not do well, yet, in a loud busy setting but our residential neighbourhood is starting to be quite comfortable.

House manners are pretty darn good… no accidents, no barking, no counter surfing, no jumping on people or nipping. She does have a little separation anxiety even with Nani for company. She has chewed up her bed cover… and one time got into the spare bedroom and chewed the guest room pillows…”but just a little bit, Mummy… see just one corner of each!!”

So a bit of care securing her surroundings when she is on her own is still required but such a happy, easy dog who will love you to bits!! I would say she is a good dog for someone with little experience with dogs as she is well mannered, pretty easy going with only a little separation angst that seems to be resolving slowly.

Hazel is ready!!
