Hazel 🐶

  • Animal ID#: A326962
  • Dog Name: Hazel
  • Dog Sex: Female
  • Approximate Age: 5 years
  • Total rock star alert! This gorgeous girl has apparently not been treated kindly by humans and has been used up for breeding, yet she is as affectionate, lovely and forgiving as they get! She will gently jump for hugs and absolutely loves affection! We suspect he would be OK with children. She participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and playful dogs. She’s so deserving of a family that wants her as a beloved indoor family pet!
  • Hazel has settled in quickly in her foster home!She is being fostered with 3 senior dogs (small, medium and large) and gets along well with them all. She’s very well mannered, is completely house trained, and while she doesn’t love the crate, she stays put on a dog bed all night.Hazel’s foster mom works from home, and Hazel politely chillaxes with the senior dogs all day. No Zoom meeting interruptions! Her foster dad is a personal trainer, and she has done great meeting his clients. She is head shy with strangers, but warms up quickly to kind people.Hazel loves walks and busts out of the gates, but quickly settles down for an energetic walk, or a slower walk, if you allow her time to sniff to her heart’s delight. If she gets a second walk (yes, please!), she has a more “been here before” attitude. We think she would be a great fitness or hiking buddy.

    Her canine foster siblings are beyond their playing days, but Hazel participated in the gentle and dainty playgroup at the shelter. She definitely has a silly side, tossing toys, or playing chase with her foster parents. She would do well as a solo dog or with other respectful dogs.

    Hazel gets sad when the humans leave, and cries for a bit. Even though she’s never destructive, Hazel’s ideal home wouldn’t leave her alone and lonely all day. She’s an affectionate girl, but not needy. However, it gives her comfort knowing her peeps are nearby.

    Hazel is an easy keeper, and would make a lovely indoor companion to a loving individual or family.

Meeting Dogs at the Stockton Shelter

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
