Axel's Story...
Meet Axel a 6 month old GSD/Heeler mix searching for his forever home! He is an energetic boy that would love an active family to take him hiking and also a fenced yard to run around in although that is not required he just loves to be outside! This boy was an owner surrender at a local shelter because they didn't have time for him. He was terrified there so he came to us where he has been doing amazing in his foster home. He has previously lived with kids of all ages although he has been a little timid when meeting new people his foster home. He really loves to play with other dogs and is even good with small dogs (He currently shares a home with other GSDs and Chihuahuas). He also thinks he is a giant lap dog and loves to cuddle and give kisses! He is crate trained and housebroken. He is working on basic obedience too!

Please make sure you read up on both breeds before applying to adopt him. He will require daily exercise as both breeds are high energy dogs.

Axle's adoption fee is $200. He is neutered, UTD on vaccines, HW tested, and micro-chipped.

Central Ohio Dog Rescue is not a shelter. All of our dogs are fostered in our homes and treated as family until they are adopted. We will not ship dogs and all adopters will need to complete an application before meeting one of our dogs. Puppies too young to be spayed/neutered will be adopted out with a spay/neuter agreement and refundable deposit. Dogs/puppies are NOT adopted out of state without a positive vet reference. Prospective adopters must be at least 24 years of age to adopt. All pets in the household must be spayed/neutered and current on vaccinations and heartworm. We process many applications and may not respond to every applicant. We try to chose the best home for each dog based upon the individual dog's needs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Axel, a Hilliard German Shepherd Dog/Australian Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Hilliard, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Australian Cattle Dog dog from a breeder in Hilliard.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hilliard already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hilliard breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog/Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hilliard paves the way for another one to be saved.
