Axel's made himself right at home

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 31 July 2011 | 9 Comments


Hello everyone. We adopted Axel in May and after a bumpy start (thanks again to everyone) I wanted to let you all know how well Axel is doing and how fantastic it is to have him so settled.


For a little boy who spent so long at the DRH he has fit into our family life amazingly. We all look forward to our walks but only Axel gets exited enough for his famous bum wiggle. He loves the river, playing with his toys and meeting other four legged friends. Axel is still cautious of other people but seems to be getting more confident all the time.

He’s well behaved at home – thanks to the great training from all the volunteers and staff at the Dogs Home. Apart from the missing chicken incident (which he swears he knows nothing about.)

Axel is so loving and affectionate, he enjoys nothing more than curling up in front of the TV and going to sleep with his head on my lap.

Axel is part of the family and we love every second we spend with him.
Thanks so much for all of your continuing support.

All the best,
 Dan, Viv, and of course Axel.

  • So glad that you have adopted Axel! He looks so happy! Over the moon! :)
    I know about one of Axel's "incidents".. there were emails all over my office trying to find Axel that day he went for a walk without asking you lol
    Well done for all your effort! If he likes the river he probably loves the beach also!
