My story

If you want a regular dog to run and play with, Axel is not for you. He basically needs someone to let him live out his senior days with them. Axel is an 12 year old boy with some hip issues. He cannot go up or down stairs easily, and needs to be carried in and out of a vehicle when going somewhere. He is a large dog, and needs someone who is big and strong who can lift him up and down when need be. He loves kids and dogs. He can be a grumpy, growly old man.. but he’s super sweet and loves attention. Although Axel is older and cannot be as active as some, he LOVES going for walks, and loves playing with other dogs. We have taken him to the dog park quite a few times and he gets out there running and playing with the others, and then usually sleeps it all off when we get home. In the house, he is usually laying on his bed near us napping. He does love to talk and howl and ask for human food from time to time though. He is current on vaccines, microchipped, neutered and on monthly flea/hw prevention and supplements. For more information, please e-mail adopt@mushrescue.com.

More about this rescue

Mush Rescue, a nonprofit organization, is dedicated to the rescue and placement of Siberian Huskies. Based in Metro Atlanta, Mush Rescue was founded in 2008 to help displaced Siberians in the community and surrounding areas. Mush Rescue is not a shelter with visiting hours. We are comprised of a network of foster homes run entirely by volunteers. Our chapter directors, officers and trustees are also volunteers. What brings us together is our love for Siberians and the desire to help these displaced animals find forever homes. As a nonprofit, federally tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization, our expenses are funded entirely by adoption fees and donations. We rely on the generosity of others who, like us, understand and admire the complexity of this unique and highly intelligent breed, and who want to help combat the effects of pet overpopulation in our community. The Siberian Husky is an extremely smart but often misunderstood breed, which is why so many end up in rescue. Their high energy and need for mental and physical stimulation require an owner who is willing to put a great deal of time and effort into their care. Because of this, Siberians are not recommended for the first-time dog owner.
