And now a few words from me

I am a wonderful and sweet girl. I had a few difficult months before coming into foster care but now I am more settled. I am on a regular feeding schedule and I eat with my foster brothers. I am used to being around animals (dogs and cats) and I like interacting with them. My favourite thing is snuggling on my foster mother’s lap – I would do that all day and all night. My foster mother tells me to go outside to do my business – I listen to her and go (sometimes she has to tell me twice) even if it is freezing cold outside. I have my own portable bedroom (crate) that has my blankets and toys where I like to sleep. Sometimes I cry a little when I first go in it, but once I feel safe, I stop and fall asleep. I have a sharp bark, but you will only hear it when I am startled or when I chime in with my foster brothers. I bark when my foster mother comes home, before I know it’s her, but I quickly stop. I like to sniff, cuddle in my dog bed, and play with my toys. I like it when life is simple and predictable. I used to spend a lot of time in my crate during the day but now I only go in it at night because I have my foster mom and foster brothers with me most of the time.

And now a few words from my foster family:

Hazel is a sweet and loving little dog. She holds her own with her foster brothers who are sometimes very rambunctious around her. She is used to always having another dog around her and there was a cat in her previous home. She is slightly overweight but the vet didn’t say it was a serious issue. She appears to have slimmed down and is on a regular feeding schedule. She is becoming less greedy around food but certainly loves her reward treats. Hazel loves to be on a lap and would probably be on one all day if she could. She would benefit from having more regular exercise as she was spending many hours in a crate in her previous home. She is encouraged to run in the back yard with her foster brothers and does this a little bit. Hazel is truly an amazing dog who would fit beautifully into a loving home.
