Facts about Hazel

This is Hazel. She was found living on the streets of Fort Worth, almost hit by a car on a busy intersection. It took about 30 minutes for me to be able to catch her.

She was not very trusting of us at first. It took her a couple of weeks to open. She's been with us for 7 months now. And this is what we have learned about Hazel.

She is a very intelligent dog. I know, I know... every pet parent thinks their dog is smart. Most dogs are smart. But Hazel is exceptionally smart. She picked up sit in 3 short takes. Being physically tired is not enough for her, she wants to be challenged mentally. She wants to work. She is wary of strangers, but once she gets to know you and trust you, she just wants to be with you.

She is an alpha female and does not get along with other alpha dogs. She also can be somewhat mean to shy, submissive dogs. She gets along best with dogs that are submissive but very active. She loves to play and she can play hard. She is not the only dog in our household that likes to play hard so that's okay.

She communicates a lot through 'pawing' - she likes to put her paw on you whenever she wants something of you, and she is not very gentle about it. So she should never be left unsupervised with small children. She is a big (60lbs), strong dog and there are no two ways about it.

Hazel needs a forever home. We are not looking for just anyone for her. She needs a special owner(s) that will be a good match for a special dog she is. Someone that is active - she would be a great walking/running/hiking/agility/ most sports really kind of dog. And she needs that kind of physical and mental exercise daily. If you love training dogs, if you are looking for a partner, and not just a warm loving body, she is the dog for you. Hazel will not disappoint - she wants to learn so much. Her eyes tell the story. She truly is amazing. And she needs a forever home. Someone committed. Someone that understands.

Hazel is about 2 years old, crate trained, spayed, microchipped, up to date on shots and flea and HW preventative.

About Happy Felines

About Our Rescue Group...

Fostering saves lives. It’s as simple as that. Instead of trying to escape the thoughts and images of abandoned and neglected cats and kittens, I decided to face the reality head on. To be proactive. Yes, you cannot save them all. But you can make a difference – a life and death difference – on many cats’ lives by fostering. There are other avenues you can pursue as well, such as networking and volunteering. But fostering is one of the most challenging (I know I’ve had a few ‘failed’ fosters ) but rewarding experiences in anyone’s life.

I am not a big organization, but one person trying to make a difference. You can make a difference too! Adopt, foster, network or volunteer. Whatever you do, do something. Yours actions (or inaction) matter!

Visit my Facebook page and spread the word, network, message me if you would like to adopt or foster. If you do not have a Facebook account email with your questions or contact information.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fee is $85 for cats and $115 for dogs and it includes spay/neuter and vaccinations.

Adoption application and contract are required. Adoption application is sent to everyone that is interested in an animal. We reserve the right to deny the application. If approved a home check is required to ensure both the well being of the animal and to make sure that the potential adopter connects with the animal and is willing to make a commitment.
