This gorgeous girl has both beauty and brains! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Hazel, a 2 to 3 years old Border Collie from Salt Lake City, Utah. She is spayed, housetrained, and up to date on her shots. Hazel does great with other friendly dogs and would prefer to be in an adult-only family or a family with older kids.

Hazel’s Tale

If you are looking for a smart and sweet pooch to be your companion, Hazel is the gal for you. At first, she will be a bit timid until she gets to know you and as soon as she feels comfortable- you’ll quickly get to know how affectionate and adorable Hazel really is. She’ll love to cuddle with you on the couch and shower you with pooch smooches when you get back home from work. Hazel is a cuddle bug and a velcro dog- she won’t leave your side once she warms up to you!

This petite pooch weighs about 30 pounds and won’t mind sharing a condo or a big house with you- as long as her activity needs are met. She is a young, spunky dog and a herding breed to boot, so it’s important to make sure she gets daily walks and playtime. Hazel loves destroying toys, though, so it’s best to skip on plushies and go straight for durable toys that she’ll have more fun trying to destroy.

When it comes to dogs, Hazel is a friendly pooch with a positive attitude, so she wouldn’t mind sharing her new home with a canine companion. She hasn’t been tested around cats, as there are no felines in her foster home. Since Hazel is a herding breed, her rescuers recommend she goes to a home with no kids or with children over 10 years of age.

If you want Hazel to become a part of your family, contact Herding Haven for more information about the adoption process.
