Axel

American Staffordshire Terrier American Bulldog

If you are interested in any of the dogs available at New Leash Rescue, you can reach out to the foster listed below for more information and then complete an adoption application which can be found at https://www.newleashrescue.org/adopt/policy. Please email the completed application to newleashrescue2018@gmail.com

Axel is a 2-3 year old, 64 pound bully mix who came to us out of a very neglectful situation. Axel's previous owners bound him with chains and allowed those to become embedded in his skin, causing some terrible wounds and a bad infection.
Axel was removed from the home and came to us for help. He has been healing up in a foster home and so far is doing fantastic. He will likely have some scarring, and his fur probably won't fill in completely, but he's still a beautiful boy with a happy personality.

Axel is good with people and good with other dogs. Early on in his foster home, he displayed some resource protection to other dogs (can you blame him after being chained outside with very little human contact? - he was so happy to have the comforts of a nice, warm home! But he has been doing much better with this lately. He lives with multiple other dogs. He loves attention and people, although he should probably be with older kids. He's a little rough around the edges with his training because his prior owners never spent any time working with him, so he does jump up and could knock little ones over.

No matter what he went through before, Axel is a happy boy who deserves a better future than what he has had to this point in his life.

Adoption fee is $350.00 + tax (no checks)

Foster to contact: Katie - 605-695-5126 (text preferred) or krkallemeyn@hotmail.com

Axel will be attending the adoption event on Saturday at the Woodbury Petsmart from 11-3pm.

Our fosters do the best they can to provide all information about the animal's background and temperament while in foster care in their home. An adopters routine and home environment is likely going to be different than that in their foster home.

Sometimes there is more that comes out about a dog's personality once they have been able to settle in a home and truly become comfortable. There are great articles out there written about the different stages a pet goes through after adoption, discussing transitions that happen at 3 days, 3 weeks, and 3 months. We highly recommend reading about this - it will help you understand the transition your new pet goes through.
