The Azalea flower represents good qualities of personalities, elegance, femininity, and softness. Japanese and Chinese gardeners considered it a sweet reminder of the time spent at home.
A sweet little lady who was once a family companion, loved and well cared for, even sleeping in bed with the kids, until she lost her home due to not getting along with another female dog in the home. She is heartbroken!

Azalea currently lives at MPR shelter. She is quite relieved to be with us after a rather long stay at the city pound. She was once a well cared for pet so you can imagine how miserable she was in a cage in an overcrowded facility. It's over now. She has adjusted quite well to shelter life at MPR. Definitely enjoys the comfort of her little bed and the attention from the volunteers.
Azalea is so well behaved that she is now our shelter princess, meaning that she is kept in a room instead of a kennel. She's no trouble at all.
What a sweet, loving and affectionate little flower. In fact, she's a little needy for love right now and cant soak up enough attention. She's only been with us a short while and is starting to understand her ordeal as an abandoned dog is over but she's still pretty desperate for reassurance. It's almost as if she couldn't believe that she's finally with good people and will never be let down again.
Azalea is a little more on the energetic side and loves to play and run around but dont underestimate her cuddle skill. It is strong! She's just very passionate about everything she does, be it to play with a ball, focus on a walk or cuddle her heart away. She puts her whole little soul in everything she does. We believe she would be just as passionate about obedience training or other fun sports.
Behavior with people:
Did we say she loves people? That's an understatement. She thrives on human company and cant get enough of it. If you are looking for an independent dog who goes on and does her own thing, that's not Azalea. She wants to be your constant little shadow and in the middle of any activity her loved-ones are up to. She is VERY affectionate and eager to have a good time.
Behavior with children:
Other than being a little needy for love, we dont anticipate any problems. We were told from the previous owner that Azalea slept in bed with a small child. That said, this little doll is needy for attention and while some kids might not mind her frequent demonstrations of love, little ones might find her a little too pushy. This is however a behavior parents should be able to control with leadership.
Behavior with other dogs:
Her previous home had an older female. The breed was not well understood and triggers were not monitored. The dogs didn't get along and had a few conflicts, which ultimately led to Azalea losing her home.
When at the pound, Az was introduced to other dogs and did well. She was even part of a playgroup. The play sessions at the city shelter are supervised by professional trainers so not always an indication of how a dog would behave in a home with a less experienced family. What we do know however, is that Azalea is not overly dog-aggressive but she can escalate if confronted by another dog.
We do believe that she would thrive as an only pet because she loves adults and children so much and would prefer not having to share attention with another dog.
Behavior with other animals:
She's a smart cookie this one, a quick learner and eager to please. Training should be fun as she loves making people happy. She's great in her kennel and appears fully housebroken.
If you want a dog loaded with love, Aza has what you are looking for. Talk about sweet! She's an irresistible little princess who craves pampered life. She has so much love to give, you won't even know what to do with all of it. She is the definition of adorable little doll.
