Well hello there, my name is Hazel,

I am a super sweet girl with lots of energy to burn so will need not only a strong handler but someone who is highly active. You see I am still a young pup and due to my breed I will need lots of physical activity and mental stimulation.

The Adoption Centre team have seen a huge improvement in my behaviour when meeting new dogs. Although I can still get a little bit excited and boisterous I am much calmer. I am walking much better on a lead and will look back to my handler for praise and treat rewards when I am doing a good job.

I need to go to someone who is willing to enrol me in behaviour training so I can continue to work on my doggie manners.

Some activities that I love are walking, running, playing tug of war and throwing my special Kong ball around. I also adore cuddles with the staff and volunteers here at Lort Smith.

It would be best for me to go to a home with no small animals as I tend to want to chase them and may give them a bit of a scare.

I will be a foster with a view to adopt while I am on some calming medication. 

Please come and say hi - I'd love to meet you!

Compatibility

  • Suits teenager
  • Allowed outdoors
  • Good with other dogs

ADOPTING AN ANIMAL

Things to consider before adopting an animal

Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime.  But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption. 

Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life.  Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life. 

Before you decide, have you considered the following?

  • Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
  • Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
  • Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
  • Do I have time for obedience training?
  • If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
  • Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
  • Does the whole family want a pet?
  • Will the pet be allowed inside?
  • Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
  • Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.

Can I afford a pet? 

Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:

  • Weekly animal food bills and necessities
  • Yearly council registration
  • Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
  • Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
  • Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
  • Ongoing grooming
  • Boarding fees for human holidays
  • Enrichment like training, toys etc
