Meet Axel, a very happy 9 year old black Lab mix with a lot of energy and fun for his age! Axel lost his ‘dog’ best friend & then his ‘human’ best friend, who had Down’s syndrome and had owned Axel since he was a puppy. Axel is fine with kids of all ages and was attached to the boy who had Down’s syndrome until he passed. His foster family says Axel “bonds” with his person and would be great going to a home with a special-needs child because that was the environment he came from. Axel is house-trained and is not fond of cats. He loves to play with toys and to play keep-away. He is very sweet and smart. He likes to sleep on the couch or in bed with his human and he walks fine on a leash. He is used to a home where people are present more than absent. Fun-loving Axel is being fostered in Springfield, IL.
