Meet Axel!! This sweet boy was found skinnier than skinny. Axel was all skin and bones when he was found as a stray. They brought him to the shelter and has become a shelter favorite. Axel, is a loving boy who is stilling gaining weight. He will need a family who would like a bigger size dog as he will grow bigger as he gains weight.
Axel is very much food driven, so gaining weight should not be an issue. Axel loves to run around the fenced yard playing with his toys. When he is done playing, he wants to cuddle up with you and snuggle. Axel is a lover!!! He will make fantastic family member. He does also enjoy going for walks with his humans.
We would recommend that he go to some basic training to learn his commands, just because he is a bigger guy and does not know his strength. Again, Axel is a big teddy bear but is also a ham!!! Don’t miss out on Axel!!! He will make a great family member. He will just need someone to help him gain weight and give him lots of love as he has lots to give in return. Apply for this handsome, loving ham today!! You will have a fun, active and couch potato all at the same time.
