Axel is a very sweet, gentle family dog that is great with babies and toddlers as well as older children. He lets babies/toddlers tug on his tail, ears, or eyes and is happy the whole time. He is a German shepherd husky that has a brown eye and a blue eye. He gets along with other dogs and cats, though he can be kind of annoying to some cats. He has never had any issues with aggression and is house trained. He would probably do best in a home with another energetic dog, but could do okay by himself as long as he has owners who will play with him a lot and take him on walks. He does like to be close to you during storms. He sheds a lot so be mindful of that if you have bad allergies. He has been trained and knows sit, wait, and “place” (get on your bed) if you focus on reinforcing his training. He usually is okay spending all day relaxing but will get in some energetic moods once or twice a day for a few minutes. He is very friendly to strangers. We are looking for a home where he will be given the attention and love he deserves as he’s such a sweet and gentle dog, and it breaks our hearts that we have to part with him due to health concerns with our children.
