Hazel/Bertha – Bonded Pair/Indian Rocks Beach

***We do not adopt out of the state of Florida***

Hi friends! We would like to introduce you to this adorable pair of female chihuahuas, Hazel and Bertha. 

Hazel and Bertha are what we call “bonded.” What that means is they are the bestest of friends, and having been together their whole lives, they are seeking a forever home together. We will not separate these girls. 

Hazel is 7 years young and weighs 6.8lbs. Bertha is 9 years young and weighs 7.4lbs. They are both very gentle natured and friendly. Hazel is the more outwardly affectionate of the two, while Bertha tends to be a bit more shy and reserved.

Their favorite thing to do is cuddle with each other on a comfie couch or dog bed. It is rare to see them willingly out of sight of one another. They seem to be crate trained, although they aren’t destructive, mischievous or big explorers so foster mom just has them set up in their own little playroom. 

Hazel and Bertha enjoy walks together. They are good on a leash, and walk very well and easily together. Keep in mind they are petite dogs though and we doubt they previously had a super active lifestyle. We keep our walks short and leisurely strolls versus counting steps. They are a combo of housebroken and potty pad trained. 

Upon arrival at VIP Rescue, both girls were severely flea infested, which resulted in some skin irritation and mild hair loss. We expect with the fleas now eradicated to see quick improvement with their skin itchiness and inflammation. The missing hair should grow back in the next couple of months too. 

Hazel and Bertha are fine with other friendly small-medium dogs being around but they do not really engage the other dogs in their foster home. They have not been tested with cats or kids, although their foster mom thinks they would do fine with proper introduction and supervision. 

Hazel and Bertha have been spayed, microchipped, are up to date on their vaccinations, started on flea and heartworm prevention, and have had fresh dentals.
