A volunteer writes:
Hazel reminds me of a little snow drop at the same time, daring and shy. She is cute, pretty and petite, a babe at 8 months of age and loves all the attention you might want to give her. Hazel is at her door and scooped swiftly before she flies out like Batgirl… She runs rather than walks and although said not to be house trained, does her business at once in the street. She is excited seeing other dogs and in playgroups with her peers, bounces happily
