Hi, my name is Hazel . I am originally from Richmond but I now live in a nice suburb in Northern Virginia. I have a great mom who takes care of me, you see, when my mom first picked me up from animal control I was in bad shape. I was living on the streets for a while so I was dirty, had an upper respiratory infection and an ear infection. I was skinny and very hungry. Because I have gone a long time without regular meals I don't like it if you try to take away my food or treats.
I have a goofy rottie brother that I live with. He is very laid back which is good because I am scared of other dogs. I would like a home where I can be an only dog or with another laid back brother. I don't like small dogs or cats. I can be around other dogs as long as I can take my time to get comfortable with them and they respect my space.
I have many human children as friends, some as young as 3 years old. I am very gentle when I greet them and I will stand still so they can love on me. Because I have never learned to share my toys it would be best if I had a home with older children. Once I trust you I will bring toys to you so we can play. Fetch is my favorite game!
My mom says that I am a very sweet and smart girl. I know sit, come, wait, go back and down. I am house trained, crate trained and don't touch things that don't belong to me. There are many things that I enjoy in this new life I have. I love baths and will get into the tub with no issues - who wouldn't want to be pampered with a soapy massage!? I also don't mind if you clean out my ears, trim my nails or brush me.
I love going for car rides because that means I am going on an adventure!! Hiking, walking on trails and wading through streams are some of the things I get to do. I do love my downtime and cuddling with you.
My mom always tells me that I am a very special girl and that I will need a very special human. Back when I was a stray, life was rough. I have an old injury, a torn ACL, and I take daily pain and anti-inflammatory medication for this. I have mild hip dysplasia and I shuffle a little when I walk. Don't think of me any differently though - I still chase squirrels and rabbits with my rottie brother and can outrun him!! I also had a mammary tumor which was removed and biopsied. It came back as a low grade cancer and my vet is cautiously optimistic of a good prognosis. I am spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and had a dental cleaning.
