Axel is an 11 month old Lab mix who weighs about 40 lbs.  He has been neutered and is up to date on his vaccinations.   

House broken and crate trained, Axel even knows some commands (sit, stay, come, drop, off, lay down).  He gets along well with other dogs and tries to play with cats. Axel enjoys playing fetch, loves belly rubs and considers ice cubes and peanut butter yummy treats.  

He sleeps right through the night and is not a barker. Axel uses his hands a lot.  He loves dragging balls around and holding toys with his hands as you can see in the video below.

Even though Axel is crate trained, he spent far too much time confined to a crate in his previous home.  As a result, he is hesitant to go into a crate now. His ideal home will be with people who are willing to consider alternatives such as gating off a room when he needs to spend some time alone. 

Axel has not been given the opportunity to attend training classes, but is super smart and eager to learn new things. Deb Helfrich of Gold Star Dog Training  has generously offered Axel's adopter $30 off a Basic/Essentials class.  Thank you Deb!
