   Leave a bone for Hazelnut


Arrival Story:
Poor little Hazelnut spent the last four months incognito in the shelter, and really that's every one's loss. She's an amazing dog. First of all, as a pit bull/basset hound mix, she's quite a looker. With her muscular torso and short legs, she's an engineering marvel. Second, she's got a great temperament. In spite of all the new things she's encountered since she got out of the shelter, she's still calm and collected. Yeah, her manners could use a little work. (Whose couldn't?) She pulls a bit on leash, and she'll sprawl all over you on the couch. On the plus side, she's quite responsive to training. And she’s a great jogging companion.

Hazelnut is great with dogs her own size or larger. She needs a home without small dogs or cats. She enjoys meeting new people and looks forward to new adventures. She has been attending canine good citizenship classes and has been picking up the commands quickly. She has also received a private training session through Skye’s Dog Training and is eligible for more for free through a program run by Best Friends. Hazelnut is about a year old and is ready to find her person. If you need a companion, she's your girl. She'll happily go with you on any adventure. And when you get to wherever you're going, she's content to just curl up at your feet. There's no doubt that she is going to make someone very happy.
