Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed.  Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first

ADOPTED ON 04-16-22: Can you imagine being lost alone in the woods freezing, hungry and scared? How frightening for anyone, and worse yet for a 10 week old puppy! This is precisely what happened to sweet, little Hazel and her three siblings. How they got in the woods, we are not sure. Often, unwanted puppies are abandoned in the woods, or a stray may wander into the woods in search of a safe place to have her puppies. In either case, when Hazel’s brother, Hunter, was found by a kind woman who was hunting in the woods, we were certain there might be more pups out there, and sure enough, there were!



Hazel, along with her brother and sister, were found 3 days after Hunter. With the freezing temperatures Louisiana is experiencing right now it’s a wonder these poor babies survived. Unfortunately, there might be some that didn’t. Luckily, it’s a happy ending for these 4 pups, who are now being spoiled in a foster home, waiting to begin their journey to a loving forever home!



Hazel is a Lab/Hound Mix with a beautiful caramel and brindle color, different from her siblings. Her dark little face makes it look like she got into a big puddle of mud and had a great time! She is only 12 pounds now but will probably be a big girl, as she has a lot of growing to do! Like most puppies, Hazel loves everyone and everything. Even the cats!  Foster mom says she is very playful, and is the life of the party. She is brave and frisky, and loves to keep playtime going with her siblings well after they decide it’s naptime! She does have a sweet, cuddly side to her, though, as well. All the puppies were so happy to be reunited, and have spent the last few days making up for a lot of lost play time!

When deciding what breed would be a good fit for your family, it is best to do some research first so that everyone, including the new pup, will be happy. Everyone knows that the Lab is the number one family dog. The sweet-faced, lovable Labrador Retriever is America’s most popular dog breed. Labs are friendly, outgoing, and high-spirited companions who have more than enough affection to go around for a family looking for a medium-to-large dog.



The sturdy, well-balanced Labrador Retriever can, depending on the sex, stand from 21.5 to 24.5 inches at the shoulder and weigh between 55 to 80 pounds. The dense, hard coat comes in yellow, black, and a luscious chocolate.  Labs are famously friendly. They are companionable housemates who bond with the whole family, and they socialize well with neighbor dogs and humans alike. But don’t mistake his easy going personality for low energy: The Lab is an enthusiastic athlete that requires lots of exercise, like swimming and marathon games of fetch, to keep physically and mentally fit. If our suspicions are correct, that little bit of Hound in him will add the extra wonderful traits of natural inquisitiveness and independence, being a loyal hunting or hiking partner, as well as a deep devotion to his people.

We are so happy Hazel is safe and sound now, and we just know she will make some family out there very happy having her as a new family member! Please consider opening your heart and home to this wonderful little girl!
