Biography

I am looking for a good home for Axl. I am recently divorced and work out of town so it's really difficult for me to give Axl the attention he needs. He needs a place he can run around. He is a 2 1/2 year old lab-husky mix (his birthday is July 16th) and is 65 pounds. Axl is kennel and potty trained, and loves treats! When I am at work, he stays in a kennel. He will also sleep in his kennel at night, but I have blocked the entry way with baby gates and let him sleep in the family room. He has been boarded on several occasions when my family went on vacation. Axl is neutered, has been to the dog park, though he gets pretty hyper and does better running around at home. He is around a cat every day and tries to be friendly with her (we say "gentle"), but she swats him away. Axl knows some tricks, but at times, is still learning not to jump when he gets excited. He has a leash and is currently working on staying beside me when we walk around the yard. I do have an invisible fence that he has used, but because I have neighbors so close, live on a fast road, and my yard is small, I keep him on a leash. He shows affection by placing his paw on you. Axl can act nervous and does well around people, but needs to smell them first. He loves my kids (10, 16 and 18), but I think he would do best in a home with teenagers and adults. When I bring him to the vet, he uses a muzzle due to his size and strength. I recently found out he has hip dysplasia so he is on pain medicine. He is also on seizure medicine that helps him calm down. Both of these medications can be purchased in bulk.
