Story: Hazel, a.k.a. Miss Hazelnutt, was found in a vacant lot and taken to Town Lake Animal Center in Austin, Texas, when she was 12 years old. She had serious medical conditions so Central Texas Dachshund Rescue took her into their Hospice program to make sure she would get the love and comfort she needed for her last few weeks. Run solely by volunteers, CTDR rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes dachshunds in need. Visit www.ctdr.com to find out how you can help. Hazel had several tumors removed and went through heartworm treatment. It’s amazing what a little medical care and a lot of love can do…two weeks of hospice has turned into over two years of steady tail wagging fun! Give your dogs a special kiss on the snout in honor of Miss Hazelnutt, the miracle dog!
