This wonderful older boy is Axel and he’s ready to find his forever home. He needs to have 1tsp of Pankaid twice a day with food to help his pancreas regulate properly but other than that he’s pretty pawesome! He enjoys being pet, sitting at your feet and going for daily short walks. He listens very well and loves his toys, so be prepared to have a large variety for him to pick from! A simple life makes him happy and even better in a quiet household with a fenced yard for those lazy sunny days lounging around.
Axel gets very upset if another dog is nearby so his new home will not have other pets; nor can he go to offleash dog parks or have visitors with dogs come to his home.
If you are ready to shower Axel with an infinite amount of love, belly rubs and toys, please submit an application online.
