HAZEL – 17552
Safe - 1-17-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Amsterdog Animal Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://amsterdog.org/donate/
Hello, my name is Hazel. My animal id is #17552. I am a desexed female white dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 03-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- no time for animal.
Hazel is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Canine Infectious Respiratory Disease Complex, which is contagious to other dogs. Behaviorally, Hazel displays poor kennel presence, and clearly does not like being confined in the shelter. Her behavior outside the kennel is much more sociable. We suggest that Hazel would be best suited to a dog experienced home.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Pretty Hazel was a family dog who, although crate trained, used to roam freely in her owners’ apartment. As a result, in addition to not being in her familiar surroundings and with her loved ones, she is not too fond of her kennel. But show her a leash and Hazel will zip…and exit “like a flower” from her den. She does not mind a coat and a scarf. A treat as a reward makes her happy. On the way to the street, we meet a few staff who squeal, “Hazel, Hazel, the pretty one!” Hazel is quickly in their arms for hugs and kisses. She is a good walker, does a lot of sniffing, appears house trained and sits nicely on command. Other dogs are not her focus although in playgroups with her peers, she is polite and even playful at times. She did not play with a ball but is said to be playful by her former owners. The bitter cold does not entice anyone to play, unfortunately. Hazel is a very girly and elegant young lady, beautifully cared for by her former family and ready to be the new forever best friend you have dreamed of. Come and meet Hazel at the Manhattan Care Center.
