This super affectionate cuddle bug is Hazel! Hazel is a pit weighing in at 55 pounds of pure love. She enjoys going on walks, playing fetch, and cuddling up for a nap. Due to Hazel’s desire for attachment and loyalty, she tends to become quite attached to the female in the household. This will require Hazel to have a female owner present in the home that has a strong alpha-type personality (though she may be able to bond with the adult male in the house with time). With the right guidance from her female foster mom, Hazel has started to let her carefree and outgoing personality shine. She can be a bit shy or reserved in the beginning, yet warms up quickly with many kisses to offer in exchange for petting and attention.
Hazel has lived with many cats and as you can see from her pictures, would love to snuggle and enjoy the company from them. Hazel can be reactive to other dogs at first, although is able to slowly warm up with the right combination of slow introductions and her alpha lead to show her the way. Hazel is comfortable being kenneled while her owners are gone and prefers this to being left out as she finds this to be comforting instead of being alone in the house. With a strong female lead to follow, Hazel listens very well and has learned many commands. She is able to sit, stay, lay down, shake, and high five. Hazel would do best in a home with children over 12 years of age. Hazel does well on a leash and is looking for an owner that would love to exercise her and has pitbull experience.
