If you have toys that need a new best friend, come meet Hazelnut. This busy, playful young girl loves fetching and chewing her toys. Such fun! Now in foster, she's also enjoying her new human friends, leaning against them and loving their affection and petting. And she's happily running in their backyard and playing with their medium and large dogs.

Hazelnut has been shy when meeting people, but once acquainted she's excited to see her new friends. She can be jumpy and overly playful with her mouth. But this is improving with the training she's getting. She's learned to obey "sit" and sits patiently while waiting for her toy being tossed for her to fetch. She's also walking well on her leash, just pulling some. She's house-trained, going outdoors many times during the day, and she's happy to hang out nicely in a bathroom when her foster is away from home.

This good-natured girl hopes to move in with an active, fun family. She would love a playful, well-behaved dog buddy, plus a yard to romp in and toys to chew. Come meet her. Give her some petting and a toy and she'll follow you home.
Come meet your new best friend
