Axel is available ( Updated 04-23-2017 )

Male German Shepherd Dog about 1-2 years old. Gets along with other dogs.

Axel came to us with a leg that was shattered so badly that there was absolutely no way to save it. It's sad when we have to make a tough decision to amputate a leg, but it's amazing how well these dogs do after the surgery.

His leg was removed and he has healed to the point where he is ready to find a wonderful family that is willing to take him in and give him the safe environment he should have had originally. He is extremely sweet, but he's also strong. He loves being petted by our volunteers and when you stop he will ask for more!

He seems to like other dogs and we haven't seen any reactions or aggression toward them. We're still getting to know him better so at this point would suggest a family with older kids until we have him to adoption events.

The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
