Hazel is an (almost) two year old female Chocolate Lab. She is pure blood Lab and AKC registered.
We have had Hazel since she was a puppy. She is VERY good with kids! She's grown up with my 4 boys and is perfect with them and loves them.
She is sweet and energetic. Her tail wags like crazy every time we walk in the door. As with all Labs, she loves food (don't leave anything out within her reach!).
She doesn't do well with cats (we have one and they have a rocky relationship). She really loves to play with other dogs and I think she'd love to have a dog brother or sister.
Hazel is spayed and up to date on all her shots. She is about 85 pounds. Chocolate coat, green eyes.
Hazel also has very bad allergies. She gets an itchy rash all over her skin when her allergies flare up. We have worked with a vet about this most of her life. We have been just treating the symptoms when they flare up too bad and give her antibiotics and steroids. However, with time, her reactions are getting worse. We have decided to do a blood test to find out exactly what she's allergic to. Then, she will have to have allergy shots which, over time, will help minimize her allergic reactions and keep her happy and healthy. As you can imagine, this is a financial commitment. With our 4 boys our highest priority, taking on the expense of her allergy shots (on top of what we've paid so far in treating her allergies and also getting the blood test done), is simply more than we can do. We are looking to find a loving home for Hazel that is able and happy to help her get through this trial with her allergies. She really is a sweet girl and we want her to be happy and healthy and live a good life. Trying to provide that for her is putting a strain on us.
Whoever is able to help her through this will have the reward of a sweet and loving and loyal dog. We are sad to have to move things in this direction, but feel like it is best for all involved. We will be picky about where she goes as our only consolation is a surety that she will be happy and well cared for. We'll want to meet you and see where Hazel would be living before we decide anything. She is used to a life mostly inside. She sleeps in her crate at night in our house and spends most of her days hanging out wherever we are in the house. She's truly a pack animal and loves being near us. She likes to go on walks and drives and to the dog park.
If you would like more information on Hazel , please email or text or call. I can give you the prices of the shots, etc. Her allergy test is being done a week from today- after which we'll be able to tell you more specifics about what she's allergic to and any treatment plans.
