Meet Hazel! She came as a stray in Haines City with Adele + 9 puppies. We were told Hazel was the dad, got her in cage and then realized she was a female but no way she was getting left behind! She’s a senior pittie mix, probably 55 pounds and 10 years old. She went to Ehrlich Animal Hospital that day, but I don’t have those records. She’s old, slow, just wants someone to pet her and she loves to nap a lot.  She has not been dog or cat tested yet so a foster or forever home without animals would be best. She’s very sweet, just an old arthritic girl who eats and sleeps. No kids because she just wants a quiet retirement home. When you stop petting her, she will lift a paw trying to beg for more.

Remarks from temp foster:
She is house trained.  Does not like loud noises or sudden movements. Loves to be petted on her side and belly. She does not like it if you stand in front of her and reach over her head. She does not like her paws touched. She loves rolling in dirt and grass. Not food aggressive.
If there is thunder or fireworks she stops eating for the night and likes to hide in a quiet place
She does not bark or make much noise.  I put water in her food to make it easier for her to swallow because she has cracked and missing teeth (vet to address next week).
She will lunge slightly and open her mouth when she dislikes something and tuck tail when she is afraid. Her world needs to be very small before she has the confidence to spread her wings
She will only swallow pills in pill pockets. She doesn’t like stuffed animals, but loves nylabones.
To meet Hazel please fill out an application on www.maxxandme.org. She will be spayed, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped.  Her adoption donation is only $125!
