Location: MD
Nicknames: Hazel, Haze, Pony

Activity Preference: Needs in-house activities, Low maintenance overall but needs quality outside time. Loves walks.
IQ: Smart
Hazel’s favorite things: Car rides, walks around the neighborhood looking for bunnies, and just all the attention she can get.
Hazel is good at: meeting people, meeting dogs, behaving in the house, going for car rides, making me feel safe, walking on a leash, playing
Ideal home: another dog, a fenced yard (absolute must)
Training Needs: Hazel is well behaved in and out of the house but needs a strong owner to keep her behavior in check.  Also a strong owner to walk her as she is a very very strong girl on walks and needs a little leash training, but nothing major.
Health issues:
Hazel had a magnitude of health issues when we started. She had hookworm, heartworm, pneumonia, kennel cough, pyrometra, and was septic. The good news is she is cured of all those ailments. Hazel is somewhat sensitive to food. It took us a while to find a kibble she can digest and not have issues. A scoop of pumpkin is a must to keep her digestive system on track.
About hazel:
Hazel overall is a great dog. She doesn’t have any bad behavioral issues and generally will listen to simple commands. That being said she does have bad days and does in general, refuse to be trained. We have been working for 2 months on shake or lay down and she just won’t do it. We like to say she is a free spirit, she does what she wants, when she wants. That being said, it is usually ok, as she is well behaved. We would definitely recommend a strong owner to ensure her behavior stays good.
Hazel loves car rides and now that she is off activity restriction she is enjoying walks and free time outside. Hazel must have a fenced in back yard and someone who will walk her daily. Hazel does need some leash work as she does pull and if she sees a bunny, all bets are off as she will try her hardest to get that bunny. She does need someone decently strong to walk her.
She loves her humans and shadows us where ever we go. She gets along with other dogs and loves other humans. She would be great if you want someone to sound the alarm when someone is in the neighborhood. Nothing gets by her and she could really make you feel safe.
Overall Hazel is a great catch and will keep you feeling safe, loved and would make a great companion if you are used to big dogs.
