I am Axel, a handsome and distinguished gentleman, ready to fall in love with my forever family. I am happy to chill or play, and love to be groomed and snuggled by my favourite humans. I also enjoy the company of other calm dogs and cats, and am very healthy and active despite my age.
I am house-trained and one of the few times I will bark is when I’m letting you know it’s time to go outside. I love to go for walks, they say that staying active keeps you young. I like to go for car rides and always behave myself when we’re out and about. I am not a fan of floors that are too slippery and appreciate carpeted or treaded stairs.
When people come to visit, I am very calm yet happy. I love to sit and watch good conversations and I will not pester you if there is food about. What can I say? I’m the perfect companion! I’m always happy to meet new people so let’s get together at the next adoption event.
Medical note: Axel was given Pro Heart 12 on September 8, 2021 (this medication protects from heartworm recurrence for 12 months) and therefore only requires Nexguard each month for flea/tick preventative until August 2022. In September 2022, he will require a new prescription of Nexguard and Heartguard or Advantage Multi for year-round ongoing treatment. Axel will require a dental surgery at the end of November which will be covered by SCAR at our vet’s office. Arrangements will be made with his adopter to be brought to SCAR’s vet for his surgery.
All dogs available for adoption with Second Chance Animal Rescue Windsor-Essex come fully vaccinated, including lepto, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and heartworm tested (and are on heartworm/flea preventative while in our care). At adoption, adopters receive a 6-week free trial of pet insurance.
SCAR does not have the resources to adopt animals to the United States and we can only adopt within a 200 km radius of Windsor, Ontario. Please do not apply if you do not live in Ontario, within 200 kms of Windsor.
