Hazelnut was a stray roaming the streets of Katy for some time. A few nice people tried to garner her trust for several days, but she insisted on playing hard to get. She ended up having to be darted by Katy Animal Control and was taken to the shelter for her safety. She was very, very scared at the shelter and spent days with her head in the corner of her kennel. But, luckily for Hazel, a nice volunteer took a video of her that was seen by a foster for Almost Home Pet Rescue on social media. A few days later, she was welcomed into the foster’s home.
Hazelnut is slowly coming out of her shell and her foster now think they’ve should’ve named her Blossom, because with love, attention and a calm environment, she is blossoming everyday. She is a sweet, loving girl who absolutely adores couch time, naps with her humans, sitting outside by the pool, being her human’s shadow and lots of belly rubs. She is still fairly skittish, but her confidence is growing everyday. She loves her foster mom and dad, and especially her human foster teen sister.
Her favorite place to be is right by their side no matter if they’re working, cooking or doing yard work, she is there. She is venturing out on her own more now to explore the home and yard and her confidence and curiosity are growing. She has been a perfect guest and has not had one accident in the foster home, even when left out alone while her foster family is out. Her foster family is still working with her on harnessing and leashed walks but she’s making progress. She is in a foster home with three other dogs of various sizes and is not a fan of other dogs at this time. She would do best in a quieter home without other pets or small children and with very secure fencing. If you are looking for a loyal, sweet, quiet and very well behaved companion with excellent manners, Hazelnut is your girl.
We are looking for home where Hazel is the only pet.
Please consider making this gorgeous girl a member of your family. As we are a foster based rescue, we do require a completed application to be submitted before we arrange a meet. This can be found on our website at : https://almosthomepetrescue.org/apply-now-1

Almost Home Pet Rescue is an all foster based, 501c3 non-profit charity. This means there is no facility where the animals in the rescue are kept - they are with fosters. Our mission is to save as many dogs as possible by rescuing from high kill shelters and the streets of Houston. Our rescues are placed into foster homes until they are adopted. We rescue from most of animal controls in the Greater Houston and Southeast Texas areas. Our adoption events are in Katy, TX every weekend. All our animals are vaccinated, spayed/neutered and micro chipped.
