05/20/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/20/17 08:47 Hazel A1112577 is an older female tan & white AMPBT perhaps American Staffordshire terrier mix that was found walking along a street in the Bronx by Police a little while ago. They stated she’s friendly, walked over to them when they called her over and allowed them to lift her into their car. During intake Hazel had a loose body and allowed all handling. She allowed to be collared and taken pictures of even though she loved attention/being pet more so she would move towards your hand if you stop petting her hence the blurry picture. Hazel didn’t seem to mind being lifted into the kennel as she didn’t want to enter on her own but she will stall and lay on your lap to avoid going in. Hazel sat nicely as I placed her food & water into her kennel.

A volunteer writes: Hey there! I’m Hazel, wanna snuggle? If I could just…oomph…there it is, my legs plus your lap equals a match made in heaven! Let me kiss you, please please please? I love to cuddle and my human friends call me a ‘velcro dog’ because wherever you are, that’s where I want to be too, stuck to your side like sweet old dog glue! I’m actually only 10 which is not really old at all and as you can see, my legs still work beautifully and I’ll even chase a ball if the mood takes me. Socializing with people is my most favorite thing to do but I also enjoy snacks, walks in the park and jogging a teeny tiny bit every now and then. My den stays neat and clean because I wait to do my business outdoors and my last family taught me how to come and sit on command, though you’ll need to keep the rewards coming if you want repeat performances! Out on the street I mostly keep to myself and if we see other dogs I promise to pass them politely no matter what their size or disposition, a true lady keeps her composure at all times and you won’t find a truer lady than me. So whaddya say? I think we’d make a great team (go Team Hazel!) and I really really hope you agree. You plus me plus a lifetime of snuggles equals the best life ever!
Another volunteer writes: What is a grand dame like Hazel doing in a kennel? Her face sprinkled with sugar powder is so gentle and sweet. She looks all together like a painting, well made and most likely well cared for until now. She waits at her door, her eyes diving into mine. Her manners are soft. In the yard, as I sit on the bench, she joins me immediately, no question asked. She feels right at home, kissing me profusely and taking in my hugs. I am in love….totally….Hazel belongs to a beautiful home and a loving master or family. Come and get her soon and make our dream come true… Video refers to Hazel’s former name Flora…
