Our newest family member…
This is Axel. Axel is approximately 9 months old and is a brown & rust colored Doberman from Doberman Rescue. He currently weighs 66 pounds and will likely reach the 90 lb. mark by the time he is fully grown. If you saw him in person you would think he was mixed with a little bloodhound as he has A LOT of skin. Axel currently has a case of demodex mange, but it is much better than it was when he was first fostered. When that is finally gone, his coat will be absolutely amazing. He LOVES kids & tolerates the toddler better than we could have ever hoped. He is an absolute sweetheart and a bit shy right now. However, we know that’s because he’s just a bit scared about his circumstances and will evolve into the frolicking puppy we know he has the capability to be. He begins obedience school on November 30, but he’s already doing well with some commands. He seems to love his new house, yard and people and we love him right back.
In case you’re wondering…yes, we still miss Loki quite a bit and always will. Each dog brings their own personality to the table, but when you lose one it doesn’t mean you can’t give another the love you have. We hope to have a nice long time with Axel.
We’re not sure how many people we’ve told about this, but we will be getting a Boerboel bitch in the spring. Someone has offered to gift us one and we really can’t refuse with the great experience we have had with the breed. Also, we’re dog people, which means we have dogs. Period. We went from 2 dogs to zero dogs in one year and now it looks like the reverse will happen. We’re ecstatic about that and look forward to the new personalities around the house, filling each day with new adventures. Stay tuned for pictures and tales of those adventures.
