Axel is adoption pending!


This young pup is Axel, a 3 year old male. He’s a very handsome and well mannered dog who wants to make his person happy. Good manners in the house and car, and on the leash. Friendly meeting people and dogs out and about. Unfortunately no young children as they’re too much excitement for him. He would be a little too much excitement for a home with cats.

Axel knows his basic commands, and will alert you to people or other animals outside, or outside of the yard. He’ll bond strongly, and loves being around you, but isn’t so clingy you’ll be tripping over him. He also loves his chew toys or a ball. He’s a fairly mellow dog, he’s always up for a walk, but once he’s exercised, it’s time to grab a nap.

In the past, Axel may have been the boss of the house, but it’s important for him to know you’re in charge. He’ll test his boundaries with the typical Shepherd stuff, but he responds quickly to a verbal correction. He stays off furniture, and likes a cozy dog bed. He’d love to be an only dog to soak up all the attention. However, with the right owner and dog, he could live with another dog. He’s being fostered with a female now with no issues.

Axel is up to date on shots, heartworm negative, neutered, housebroken, crate trained, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $375. For more information, please contact Jeremiah at
