Posted 12/13/17 and pictures taken 11/29/17. I picked Axel up from the Smith County Animal Shelter on 11/29/17. He had been picked up on CR 3140 on 11/8/17 weighing 30 pounds, and estimated to be 4 years old. He was scared in the kennel at the shelter. Once out of the kennel, he was in my lap licking my face while I was signing his release papers, good on a leash, and likes going for rides. I have let him run around several of my dogs with no problems, but can act dominant to some other male dogs. He will be neutered on 1/5/2018. He has not liked going potty in his larger kennel here, so there is a chance he might be house trained, but he does like to mark areas outside his kennel here. He is heartworm positive, and we will be doing slow kill for his treatment. I have a page of instructions for using Ivomec for the slow kill that will go with his adoption if he is still positive when adopted. He could be heartworm negative in 6 months. Axel is estimated to have been born around 2013, and weighed 30.0 on 11/8/17.
