Hazel's Info...

Hazel's Story...
When you meet Hazel you'll almost want to be wearing shin guards to protect yourself from her ever-wagging tail! This sweetheart is a hound mix with a beautiful brindle coat, estimated to be about 2 years old, weighing in at 60 lbs. She immediately makes friends with anyone she meets and loves getting close for an affectionate pat and nuzzle.

Hazel has just completed heart worm treatment, so the vet has her on limited exercise until mid-December. Once she gets the OK from the vet, she will be ready to lead a normal, active life. To celebrate, Hazel will want to go out and run circles in the backyard. She's interested in sticks, balls, and toys so she should make a great partner in fetch or keep-away. Hazel is so excited to get out of the house on her short walks that we know she will love taking longer, vigorous walks or even jogs.

Hazel is doing very well on her house training--in fact, she hasn't had any accidents after her first two weeks in her foster home. She is good in a crate, and sometimes goes in of her own accord to take a nap. She likes shoes and sometimes her foster parents don't always find them where they left them... hmmm . . . but as long as she is kept supplied with rawhides and bones, the shoes are safe. She absolutely LOVES chomping on rawhides.

Hazel gets along great with the resident dog in her foster home, even sharing doggy beds with her. She would be a great second dog if you are looking for a play partner! She has also learned to co-exist with the family's two foster cats.

Hazel is ready for her new home and new family any time you are! If you are looking to bring a dog home for the holidays, Hazel would love to meet you.

Hazel's adoption fee of $290 includes: vet exam, distemper combo and bordetella vaccinations, rabies vaccination, heartworm test and treatment, heartworm preventative, deworming, flea and tick preventative, microchip and spay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hazel, a Mt. Prospect Hound (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Hound (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Mt. Prospect already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Mt. Prospect breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Mt. Prospect paves the way for another one to be saved.
