Axel finally finds his forever home

After four year at the Refuge, Axel went home with a lovely couple today who just fell in love with him. They couldn't wait to get him home to start spoiling him as much as possible, to make up for all the time he had to wait to find the right family.

There were plenty of tears as everyone said their goodbyes, but we are absolutely thrilled that Axel has finally found the loving home he deserves.

We'd like to say a HUGE thanks to volunteer Jess Loo who has been fostering Axel for a couple of months now and has spoilt him rotten! She is such an amazing volunteer and has made the last couple of months the happiest ever for Axel.

  • Just wanted to send a quick post to say THANKS SO MUCH to everyone who helped find Axel. He is doing great and has settled in so well. Everyone who knows Axel knows how much love he has and he just fills our house. We feel so lucky to have him and for all his great friends at the DRH. We will send in his story and pics in the next week or so and we will see some of you soon so Axy can say hi in person. Thanks again

  • Hi - Axel's mum and dad, when I heard the news this afternoon I was overwhelmed with joy. I had just packed up and was ready to head of for another search, and the phone rang.
    Thanks also for the special lady who found him.

  • I thought Axel was gorgeous when we were there in December. Didn't take him as we wanted a medium sized dog. Was so upset to hear he'd gone missing - now very very happy to hear he's been found. Good luck Axel and your new family. You deserve all the best.

  • Axel was found this afternoon in the Bassendean Industrial Estate by one of our volunteers. A HUGE thanks to each and every volunteer who spent hours out there looking for him – the support has been absolutely AMAZING!

  • Axel went missing from the Bassendean area and there have been a couple of sightings since around the area. Our vollies have been out all day everyday since looking for him. The latest updates are available on our Facebook page

  • We have been following Axel's progress since we adopted Jack in december 2009. We were thrilled to see that he finally found a loving home and devastated to hear on the radio this morning that he has been lost. We are praying that he will be reunited with his family and look forward to hearing some good news.

  • What area did Axel go missing? So I can keep an eye open for him. Really hope he is found soon. Would you please post here when he is found?

  • I am so glad that Axel has found a loving home. I also watch the progress of the long termers and hope each day that I see they have been adopted.
