Update Received December 2010: We thought we would share some pictures of handsome Axel who we adopted 02/2009. He is all grown up now at 70 plus pounds but still thinks he is a snugly lap dog. We think he is the sweetest boy ever. He loves his kids and loves having eager volunteers to throw his tennis balls, snugggle with, or give him a tummy rub. We feel very fortunate to have him in our family. Thanks for giving dogs like Axel a second chance and families like ours an opportunity to love them.
