Hi Everyone – my name is Hazel and I’m a 2 year old golden retriever. I think I was born in Beijing China, but I can’t tell you much about my past. All I know is that I was hit by a car; wow that really hurt! Somehow I got picked up and taken to a dog hospital where they took care of me…and did I ever need help. My left hip was dislocated so I needed a FHO and my right hind leg was broken in 3 places, which needed a plate, a rod and screws. After my surgery, I couldn’t put much weight on my hind legs so I had to be very careful. A couple of weeks later, my broken leg had to be operated on again. But now, all of that is in my past and I got to travel to my final destination – Oregon and I’m looking forward to a great life!
Good news: I graduated from the Healing Arts Animal Clinic in Beaverton where I had my physical therapy and laser treatments which helped me so much. Now that I’m healthy I can do just about everything other young, active dogs can do. I run up and down hills, play with other dogs, jump on the sofas and I get into mischief. If I had one favorite toy it would be an indestructible red ball, I chase them and carry them around in my mouth.
Now we’re ready to find the right person/family for me. I want to become a family member who will play with me, take me for walks and if you’re up for running, I can do that too if it’s not a long run. I’m also very social so I’m the perfect dog that can go everywhere like outdoor coffee shops and restaurants. Everyone loves to pet me and I love the attention too. After all that activity, I’ll take a long nap.
Because I’ve had surgeries on my hind legs, I would prefer to live in a single level house. I can climb stairs now, but as I get older, it may become a problem for me. Finally, I may need additional treatment later in my life.
If you are interested in adopting me, my foster mom will tell you all about me.
