Axel was found as an abandoned stray on the streets of Memphis, TN. He has learned commands, "Sit", "Submit", and will go into a crate. He responds to anyone that has food in their hand - even people he doesn't know. He is dominant over food and toys and will try to bite if someone tries to take them away. Otherwise, you can pet him, touch his head, mouth, feet, scratch his belly - he doesn't mind. He can be given medicine orally, with no biting behavior - this has been done by his rescuer and someone he had only know for one day. He must be able to live inside, and allowed to run around a fenced yard several times a day. Doing a "job," and following commands is very important to his well-being. If he is bored, he will get into trouble. The perfect owner for Axel, would be someone who understands "working dog" behaviors.
Axel has been neutered and received all his vaccines. His heartworm screening came back positive, so he will need to undergo heartworm treatment.
