Meet Axel

Anxious boy 8.9kg Axel was surrendered into DCH Care as an urgent request from the Pound. He has calmed down considerably by being in care. Seems to be scared of felines but tries to play with other dogs.

He loves discovering the back yard so will need a back yard, no apartment.

Initially did not like the lead. Foster carer will arrange vet check, Heartworm check and C5 vaccination.

1st photo was taken after 2 days in care. 2nd photo was taken at the Pound after he was surrendered.

Axel was pacing towards the front door continuously on his arrival, however settled down overnight and especially after he had a warm bath the next day.

Since arriving at the 2nd foster house, he has been on several walks, now walking well on the lead and has met several doggie friends.

Currently on a successful trial at present.

Axel was adopted on 07 June 2022 after 1 month in foster care
