Facts about Hazel

  • Breed: Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Hazel is fascinated with the outside. In the summer she chased fire flies, in the fall she was mesmerized by falling leaves. This spunky little one loves to trot around the house. Sometimes you can find her entertaining herself by chasing her tail and playing around the floor. Hazel always keeps track of her person. Her favorite spot is curled up in her dog bed in the living room. Plus, she enjoys sleeping in the "big" bed with everyone else. Her foster mom fondly calls Hazel her crippled old lady. She's a sweet thing and very curious. You'd never know this 7-pound girl is 10 years old with bad knees (luxating patella and bad curvature of the tibia bones) and elbows (dysplasia), except for her limp. Hazel is so used to the issues she will live her life without surgery which would be just too much for her age. She stays happy with an aspirin a day to help the arthritic pain/discomfort coupled with a glucosamine supplement. Since Hazel came from a private breeder, she is not potty trained but continues to work on it. She does well in a kennel, for short periods. Because of her diminutive size, Hazel will need a home with no children under the age of 9. Hazel will do best in a home with a resident dog to help her along. The suggested adoption donation for Hazel is a minimum of $150 and goes toward the high cost of veterinary care for our rescue dogs.Wag N Train Terrier Rescue adopts only to people living in states neighboring Nebraska and requires the adopter to travel to Omaha, NE to pick up their newly adopted dog. We do not transport or fly our rescue dogs. A securely fenced yard is necessary to adopt one of our terriers. Please note, invisible or underground fencing is not considered secure or appropriate containment for terriers.Adoption applications can be found at www.wagntrainterrierrescue.com/adoption-information

About Wag N Train Terrier Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Wag N Train Terrier Rescue was formed in April 2010 to provide tender loving care for terriers in need. We are a small, all-volunteer organization made up of uniquely talented individuals who all love dogs. Several of us are certified pet dog trainers and we hold weekly training sessions for the dogs in our foster care. In addition, we also teach dog training classes to the general public and offer a weekly small dog play group for supervised socialization opportunities.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events at Long Dog Fat Cat (across from Village Pointe Shopping Center and at Loveland Center) and at The Green Spot.Meetings by appointment can be arranged upon approval to adopt. Please see our events calendar on our website: http://www.wagntrainterrierrescue.com/calendar.htm

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process starts with a completed adoption application requiring three personal references, a vet reference and a mandatory home visit. Once approved to adopt, an adoption contract and adoption donation are required, as well as travel to the Omaha area to pick up your newly adopted dog. We require securely fenced yards for our terrier breeds and we do not consider invisible fencing safe or appropriate for terriers. Adoption applications can be found at wagntrainterrierrescue.com
