Hazel is a 2 year old black female weighing 65 pounds. She was surrendered to a Northern California shelter because her owners were moving and could not take her with them. Hazel is a shy sweet girl who probably hasn’t seen much outside her old home. She came out of her shell more when meeting her foster moms dogs and had a smile on her face and happily wagged her tail. She would love to be in a home with other dogs because that is when she is happiest. She is house trained and crate trained. She is a pretty quiet girl who is ready for her new life. Hazel was just diagnosed with a herniated wall in her heart causing a very loud heart murmur and enlargement of the right side of her heart. She is a grade 3 out of 6, the vet stated life expectancy with these types of issues could be 5 to 9 years. Hazel just started daily medication and will need to be on it the rest of her life. The medication is approximately $300 every 6 weeks plus yearly echocardiograms. She can have a normal active life in the meantime. There is corrective surgery available but only Colorado State University performs the necessary surgery.
