Meet Axel

Hi everyone! This is the most happy, sweet, fun-loving little man and his name is Axel! He came from a household that wasn't very kind to him but since staying with his foster family he has opened up and is showing us how much love he has to offer. He is 11 months old and about 46 pounds. He has a hearing impairment but still reacts to very loud or high pitched noises and tends to look in the wrong direction! Axel is working on breaking his counter surfing habit and his play-bites are a lot more gentle than they used to be. Axel responds so well to training with hand signals and facial expressions! He knows 'come', 'sit', and 'no' and takes his treats gently from your hand. He loves playing rough with his foster sisters (especially with tug of war) and he will need slow introductions to new canine friends. Axel is fully crate trained..to the point where he anticipates when he needs to go in and he does it before I tell him! His favorite thing to do is to chew on the toys scattered around the house, and this boy can chew through a Kong toy easily! Axel would do best with one other dog or as your closest companion! He loves cuddling--day and night. He is also house trained and we are currently working on leash training. He is a huge bundle of joy and is looking for a fantastic hooman to help take care of him!

Are you interested in adopting Axel or another JCAPL pet you have seen? You'll need to start by completing an adoption application, available online at our website: www.jcapl.org. There is no obligation to adopt by completing an application, however, we do recommend submitting an application as soon as you find an animal you are interested in. We review applications in the order they are received.

Completed applications can be sent via email to adopt@jcapl.org , faxed to 919-300-5524 or delivered in person by visiting us at one of our adoption events on Saturdays at PetSmart in Garner (White Oak Shopping Center).

We will contact you as soon as possible once we receive your application.

Thanks for thinking adoption!
