NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Axel is a happy chap, who enjoys a good chew on his bone, likes other dogs and loves people. He is house trained but has been living outside for some time so may need some patient reminders about expected behaviour when he moves to his new digs. Axel sleeps well through the night, travels happily in the car, and can cope with some alone time, as long as he has regular exercise and a chance to be with his pack when they are around. Like many of his people, Axel is afraid of thunderstorms and would prefer some reassurance and company when they are rumbling. Axel gets on pretty well with other dogs and has lived happily with Ruby and another dog in the past. He prefers to be in charge among the dogs at home, so would suit living on his own, with Ruby, or with another relaxed female dog. Axel gets a bit excited when greeting new people and pups, but settles quickly and responds to his carers when asked. He is showing some of the stiffness of his years but is happy and active and should remain so with attention to his needs. Axel can be a bit protective of his bones (his precious) so should be separated from other dogs and small people when he is eating.

Axel will do well in a range of (cat-free) homes where he has human and/or canine company. He has not been getting a great deal of exercise or contact beyond Ruby in recent times and will benefit from some engagement activities and lead training with his people to help him brush up on doggy etiquette. Axel’s friendly and enthusiastic nature should make this pretty easy and mutually rewarding. Axel understands modern life and will be okay if his people need to go out for work or play, provided he has a doggy friend or problem-solving games and toys to keep him busy. Axel is new into our care and we will update his profile as we get to know him better.

All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. All necessary vet work such as dentals, surgery, eye treatment is also carried out. We are no longer heartworm testing as we have not had one positive test since we began in 2006. If a dog comes to us on heartworm treatment this is continued.
