My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Name: Hazel

Breed: Pit Bull Mix (Best guess)

Sex/Age/Weight: Female, 6 years old, about 40 lbs

Vetting: Fully vetted, HW Negative, spayed, microchipped

House trained/Crate trained: I love my crate and am happy to sleep and eat there, especially if I've got a good bone to chew to keep me occupied! I haven't had an accident inside the house in YEARS!

Dogs/Cats/Children: I prefer dogs that are big, calm, and friendly! Little dogs, cats, and young kids scare me. None of those please!

Energy Level: I love to play fetch with my ball and play with my toys, but I'm also happy to couch-potato around for most of the day. I'm also really good at keeping myself occupied and will even throw the ball for myself or run zoomie laps in the yard if you're too busy to play.

Before FAR: My foster mom found me asking for food at the neighbor's house. I was super skinny and had been on the street for a while, but no one would feed me because they couldn't have a dog and wanted me to go away. My foster mom took me in, got me healthy, taught me all the important house rules, and now I'm ready for my forever home!

Training Status: I REALLY want to do whatever makes you happy, so I'm really easy to train! I have good recall, can "drop it" on command (even the good stuff, like balls and treats!), and I know "Off", "Go to your room", "Leave it", "Stay", and "Wait". My foster mom taught me that it's not nice to jump on people without their permission (sometimes I still forget!), so she taught me the command "Jump!" where I leap into your arms so you can hold me like a baby! It's my favorite trick and makes me REALLY happy!

Things I like: I LOVE balls and toys! I will get them out every day and play with them and I'm pretty hilarious if I do say so myself! I also love to chew bones. But my FAVORITE thing is humans!! I can be happy for hours cuddling on the couch and staring lovingly into the eyes of any (adult) human who will pet me! Oh, and I love to give kisses!

Things I don't like: Sometimes when a dog I don't know well gets up in my face, I get really mad! I need really careful, slow introductions and prefer to just hang out with my own pack. Dog parks are NOT my jam! Little kids are weird and unpredictable and that freaks me out. I'd prefer my humans fully grown, please!

Ideal Family: I would love a family with one or two bigger dogs to be my friends! A pack of my very own! I don't want to be in charge and I'd like to have a stable, friendly big brother or sister to look up to. I'd also be okay with being the only dog and wouldn't even mind living in an apartment (I'm really quiet most of the time!), as long as I get lots of exercise when my human is home! I don't think I would mind older kids or teenagers in the home, but I've never really met any of those. I'd be willing to give it a shot if it means getting my very own family!

Special Notes: You'll be happy to know I'm not afraid of storms or loud noises and I don't mind you leaving me to go to work (as long as you bring me home "the bacon"!). I don't shed very much at all and I love wearing sweaters and jackets in the winter (cuz my belly is naked and I get cold!). I'm not really that food motivated, so I'm not too interested in counter surfing or getting into the trash. Oh, and I know the difference between things that are mine (like toys and bones) and things that are yours (like shoes and chargers), but if I make a mistake at the beginning, just let me know and I won't do it again! I take my human's rules very seriously!

If you are interested in giving Hazel a forever home, please visit the link below to fill out an application! http://fureverafterrescue.org/adoption-application.html It is best to submit an application through a computer. We have experienced some problems when applications have been submitted using a mobile device. *When you submit the application, you are not obligated to adopt however it does reserve for you the opportunity to adopt that particular animal. We review them on a first come first served basis. If your application is approved, we will contact you and allow you the opportunity to adopt. If you choose not to adopt, we will contact the next approved applicant. If you have any questions or difficulties, please contact us and we will be glad to help!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Our adoption process starts with the potential adopter filling out an adoption application. In the application, you can specify a particular dog in which you are interested, or let us know what type of pet in which you are looking, so we can find the perfect animal to fit your family and your needs. Once the application is received, a board member will review the application, and make contact with the potential adopter within 48 hours. This initial contact may include further questions/more information, or may include scheduling a meet and greet for you to meet the animal in which you are interested! Once the application is approved or the meet and greet goes well, then the adoption can be finalized. To finalize the adoption, an adoption agreement must be completed, the adoption fee paid (we accept cash, paypal, or credit/debit card), and then the potential adopter can take their new family member home with them or schedule pick up of their furry family member! The adoption fee varies based on the dog or puppy you are interested in. Some of the adoption fees have been listed on the individual dog's description but if you do not see one then please reach out and we would be happy to talk to you about it! If you are interested in any of our animals, please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have!!

Go meet their pets

We hold adoption events some Saturdays at various locations around middle GA from 11 am-3 pm. Check our Facebook page for updates on Events! We are also able to arrange meet and greets for local adopters!

More about this rescue

Furever After Rescue, a 501(c)(3) organization, is a no-kill, foster-based rescue devoted to finding homes for animals needing a loving home. Most of our animals come from local, high-kill shelters with some occasionally coming from bad situations and owner surrender. Our animals are immediately placed in foster homes where they learn love and are taught how to live in a home environment. All of our animals are up-to-date on their age-appropriate vetting needs and are tested for personality traits as best as possible. We have many wonderful pets looking for forever homes!
