I'm Axel! I had a tough beginning and looking for my forever home. I had to learn how to fend for myself for awhile and learning what its like to be in a loving home.
I love people, especially the ones that give me yummy snacks. They are the best!
I'm super smart and eager to please. I give the best hugs and just want to be with my family.
I like to follow my nose and sometimes that gets me into trouble.  I want to be a guard dog 
I like to play with other dogs as long as they aren't overbearing. 
Cats are interesting too.  But food is my passion.
Axel has no training. It's evident he was a stray for some time. His foster family is working on basic training to be a good k9 citizen. He will need a patient and understanding family. He currently has very little impulse control. He is very vocal and has some anxiety about being left alone.  We are doing mutch better about loud noises.
Car rides makes Axel nervous. This may get better with time as he goes to new and fun places.
Axel responds well to positive reinforcement. A harsh "no" scares him.
Foster family is working to train:
Potty training
Impulse control
Off (counter surfing and jumping on people)
Leave it
Crate training
Appropriate things to chew on
Walk on a leash
Recall ("here")
Axel is super smart and trains well. Would be a great addition to any active family with some training experience. 
Axel will be available for adoption after being neutered. His adoption fee is $375.00 If interested, please complete the adoption application here : ADOPT ME
*Please be sure to read the adoption info/FAQ tab on our main website before applying for a dog.
