If you’re the kind of person who likes a morning nose bump and kiss, then Axel is the perfect Doberman for you! He’s a 5-year old nose kisser who also likes to big game hunt (stuffed moose, teddy bears and happy hippos are his favorite toys). Axel wakes up with a smile on his face and is ready to start playing the moment his paws hit the ground. He thinks that humans should be the same!!
Axel is an owner surrender due to not having time for him with a new baby in the house. He’s full of energy and likes to play 24/7. He will need someone committed to giving him physical exercise and mental stimulation. Axel would enjoy a running partner or possibly learning agility.
His new owners will have to continue with additional obedience work to teach him some manners. He is a counter surfer and has trouble understanding that he cannot help in the kitchen by swiping butter off the island. He is learning to walk on a leash and already knows sit, stay, come and give paw. Axel will also play ball and fetch when he feels like it.
Axel is good with other dogs and loves to play with other canines his own size. He can be shy at first with humans in public, but openly welcomes new people into his home.
A household with an active family in a quiet neighborhood and fenced yard (Axel does not respond to underground/electric fencing) will be the perfect match to give Axel the stability and environment where he will continue to be happy and thrive.
