Axel - in Maine!

Posted November 2019


Everyone who meets Axel calls him a goofball ; 0 )

Axel and his sister Gypsy were rescued by our southern partners and we’re so happy they came to Maine. They are thought to be lab/great dane mixes and Axel tips the scales at 76 lbs and maybe still growing. They are approximately one year old.

In foster, Axel is living with several other dogs of all sizes and is doing great; right now he is more interested in dogs than people. His foster mom tells us that he loves people. He is a leaner but not jumpy. He will climb in your lap if you let him! He can be a bit anxious if he’s not with other dogs or in sight of his people. He can be constantly right by your side looking for reassurance; he has stepped on a fair number of toes because he’s so close ; 0 )  He’s done well with the cats; he will chase them if they run but can be redirected.  Every night he jumps on our bed, lands laying down and inches his way up the bed, like maybe we won’t notice if he does it that way. Such a nut!


We don’t think Axel would be happy as an “only” unless he had a human around all the time. He is a chewer and needs some strong toys, otherwise he will grab a table leg, chair, etc if you are not watching him closely.



If you are interested in meeting Axel or any of our cuties, please fill out the adoption application

Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
