Axel was rescued from a high-kill shelter and was adopted into a home with Children and other dogs. Axel is not doing well with all of the High energy activities and many children coming and going constantly, as the resident children have very active social lives and high-energy activities. Axel is seeking an adult-only and perhaps female-only family to give him the calm and safety he seeks. Axel is a 2-year-old Jack Russell and Italian Greyhound mix boy. He is neutered, up-to-date, and shy.
What Axel needs
Axel is a sweet boy seeking a calmer, quieter home where he can relax and be himself. With his current high-energy home and people coming and going all the time, he is always on edge and agitated. He needs an animal-free home where he can just be himself and have 1-2 people he can get to know, learn to trust, and be best friends with. Axel has stranger danger fear, which means when new people come into the home, he becomes fearful and feels he has to protect his humans and his toys or go hide. He needs a quieter home with dog-savvy, rescue-savvy people who can work with axel to build a loving bond and let him know he is safe and will be well-loved and cared for furever. Once Axel is settled and develops a bond with his new humans, he becomes a
lap dog, hugger, and kisser and seeks out love and attention.
Once he is settled in a home, he will take to his new female adopter quickly and bond deeply. Rompin Paws will work with you on proper introductions to the home and help him decompress and settle in. Once Axel decides you are his person, he is truly yours. He will use his paw to pull your hand to him to pet him.
