Axel was rescued from a kill shelter by our family and it breaks our heart to rehome him. We weren't provided any background on him when we got him and he had mange, staff infections and was severely underweight. We updated all of his shots, with no illnesses. He knows basic commands such as stay, sit, lay down, head down, and freeze. He is about 80lbs and was born April of 2017. We believe he is a pitbull and boxer mix. He is a lover but is weary of strangers and is on high guard. We have 2 young children and are rehoming him because he recently began growling and snapping at them. I would recommend a home without young kids who can easily irritate him. We have a cat and Axel is more curious than anything, he has never hurt him but wants to play. We do not have another dog, so I cannot say how he would do in the same home as another dog. Axel has enjoyed supervised play with our neighbors dogs in the past. He is house and crate trained. We will miss him very much and want to make sure he goes to a good home.
