Looking for a handsome dude to add some life to your household? Look no further cause you found him.

Im Axel and I am star quality gorgeous, if I do say so myself. Im not yet a year old and weigh about 41 pounds. My eyes are my best feature...not that the rest of me isnt quite stunning, but one look in my eyes and youll be taking me home!

My foster mom says Im a really good boy. I love my crate and I know where my potty needs to go...outside! I love to play with other canines and kids are my favorite. Stuffies, especially the ones with squeakers inside, bring out the playful in me. They are tops on my list of toys. Im a lover, so get ready to be snuggled up with me. If youre going to take a bath and invite me to sit by you, Ill lay my head on the side of the tub so you wont feel lonely!

Im a fast learner and already know sit and how to give my paw for a shake. I just know my forever family will be teaching me all the new things I need to be an awesome member of the household. Im going to be your star pupil! 

Are you coming to see me today? I hope so cause Ive got lots of love to give and I think I want to give it to YOU!!! Im at Gateway Pet Guardians. Youll know me by my gorgeous eyes and loving demeanor. Hurry up though...theres lots of people asking about me and I wont be here long. I dont want you to miss out on the best companion you could ever hope to have.

Axel is about 11 months old and weighs 42 lbs and has been good around people and other dogs.
